How to Get Heatless Overnight Curls, As Seen on TikTok

Last year, TikTok's heatless overnight hair-curling hack using a robe belt went viral.

Now app users have come up with a new easy way to wake up with perfectly coiffed hair.

For this one, you'll need a T-shirt.

This is how to get bouncy curls overnight, with no heat.

The hashtag #tshirtcurls has over 7.2 million views.

TikTok user Erin Dugan Jurchak shared a video attempting the T-shirt curls last week after seeing creator @mypawfectfamily show her hair results using the hack.

Her video has garnered over 6.7 million views and 1.2 million likes, while @mypawfectfamily's has over 1 million views and 248,000 likes.

"I live for these heatless hair experiments," Dugan Jurchak said at the beginning of her video.

She started with 90 percent air-dried hair and a T-shirt rolled up into a doughnut shape with hair ties keeping its shape.

With her hair parted in the middle, the T-shirt is placed on the crown of her head.

She took the first piece of hair from the front of her face and pulled it over and under the doughnut making sure it's tight to the T-shirt.

Then, she added a new section of hair to the piece that had been pulled under the doughnut and said: "Same thing, make sure it's tight up against that T-shirt, around the T-shirt and down."

She continued around her head, adding more hair as she went but explained that reaching the back of her head was not as easy.

Once she had completed one side of her head, she used bobby pins to hold in place and then repeated the process on the other side of her head, beginning again from the front.

The next day she explained that the t-shirt was "very comfortable to sleep on" and "didn't really move."

She removed the bobby pins and shook her hair out to reveal her bouncy curls.

In disbelief, she said: "I cannot freaking believe this."

To get the right curls for you, TikTok user @baharbdoll explained: "The smaller the T-shirt, the tighter the curls. If you use a bigger T-shirt, you're going to get more of a blowout look."

She also advised gently unrolling the T-shirt to take it out, instead of shaking your hair out to avoid any tugs and pulls.

Other users of the app have shared their disbelief at how well the hack worked with user @haleyjakobson audibly gasping in her video after unravelling her hair.
