HHA | Crocodile Curls

So its been a while since I have documented a Heatless Hair Adventure, and today I decided to have ago at another way to curl my hair and take a few snaps to share! This post wasn't planned so apologies for the lack of photographic detail but I'll walk you through how to do it!

What you will need: 

Clips ( I used crocodile clips, that's why I named them crocodile curls)
A spray bottle of water
Styling wax

+ First off section your hair into two sides and clip one out of the way. Then separate a small section off (this will be your first curling section) and clip the rest out of the way.
+ Dampen the strand of hair with the water, then place two fingers at the top of the strand and wrap the hair loosely around your fingers like you would a curling wand.
+ Pull your fingers out of the loop and wind the loop towards your scalp and clip in to place.Then separate another small section of hair and repeat. Do this all over your head. You should end up looking like this...

+ Once in place spritz again with water then with some hairspray. I used a total of 19 clips as I do have a lot of hair, although it doesn't look like it.

I left these to set for about an hour and a half before I took the clips out and scrunched with wax to give texture. The end result was pretty, bouncy curls. There were a few indentations where the clips had sat but nothing to bad. The curls did drop out but my hair does have trouble keeping in loose heatless curls because its pretty straight and has a relatively silky texture, but I think with a little more practice and refining this technique could work quite well.
Here are my results...
