Heatless Curls: How to & Styles

We love the look of long, luscious curls at ZALA. However, sometimes our locks need a break from heat styling tools! Which is why we are loving heatless curls! These super easy curls can be effortlessly achieved without exposing your hair to damaging heat <3 Read on to get these ultra pretty heatless curls.

heatless curls


Not only do heatless curls save your hair from the damage of heat, they are perfect for the lazy girl who needs a quick and effortless hairstyle. This is also great for naturally curly hair curls to define that style. You can style your hair whilst you sleep! We think this is ideal for the summer months, too <3 There are many ways to get curls without the heat! Switch your heat tools for accessories you have at home to add beautiful curls throughout your tresses.

Heatless Curls – Head Band Method

heatless curls

The head band method! For best results, start with damp hair. Apply a headband that sits firm against your head. Next, take sections of your hair and start twisting. A general rule with curls, the thicker the strand, the looser the curl! Once you’ve twisted the section, wrap around your headband until it’s secured in place. Repeat these steps throughout your whole hair until your left looking like the above! You could even get away with wearing this as a hairstyle ;)

Heatless Curls – Plait Method

This way of getting heatless curls is perfect if you’re wanting a more beachy look with added texture. Simply start with damp hair, plait/braid your locks and leave to air dry! Once completely dry, unravel to reveal beautiful, beachy tresses. To finish, apply a sea salt spray & scrunch for added texture. If you’re a beach lover, keep this style in mind after swimming. You’ll be left with the most gorgeous textured curls <3


Heatless Curls – Twisting Method

Our final and most effective way to achieve heatless curls – twisting! You can do this on either dry or damp hair. For those with naturally curly or frizzy locks, we recommend starting with damp hair & applying a leave in conditioner before twisting. Start on the front sections of your hair, taking one big piece and splitting into two. Twist both sections around each other & continue twisting till the end of your hair. Again, the thicker the strand, the looser the curl. Once you’ve twisted, wrap up into small buns and secure in place. Check out exactly these gorgeous curls by twisting your tresses in the tutorial below!

And there you have it! Quick, easy & effortless curls! What’s your favourite way to get heatless curls? Let us know below. And if you try the look, don’t forget to complete with your ZALA Clip In Hair Extensions for the most luscious locks.

Where to Part Your Hair

Want to know the best way of changing your look with no cost?! Switching up your hair parting! If you’re stuck in a rut with your locks and you’re asking where to part your hair? Or if you want to find out how your part can accentuate your best features, ZALA have got you covered!


Determining where to part your hair is based off 2 key factors: your face shape & your desired look! If face shapes are completely new to you, check out our previous blog post which covers exactly how to identify your face shape.


where to part your hair

If your face is round/square shaped, the middle part is for you! Perfect for those who want to minimise the appearance of roundness! The centre part helps to slim & elongate your features. Part this part with loose waves, styling to frame your face. This will bring all the attention to your face to enhance those cheekbones! A centre part also give a super boho vibe to your hair.



Oval & oblong face shapes will be enhanced by a side part! Unlike the centre part which elongates the face, the key for oblong faces shapes is to widen & break up the length of your face shape. This can be easily achieved with a pretty side part to perfectly round off the face! A key to side parts is to start approximately above the arch of the brow on the ‘good’ side of your face. We all have one! Paired with loose waves or curls, this will help to enhance your features & add volume to the sides of the head.



Opt for an off-centre parting if you’re a heart shaped face gal. The asymmetries of this hair parting help to effortless soften any angular or harsh features. Part with an ‘undone’ style, this relaxed style will help to distract and disguise the points of the face.

See? Your hair part can really make a difference to enhance your features! And it’s a super easy peasy way to switch up your look. In the end, go with whatever part you want to rock! xx


Do’s and Don’ts of Clip In Hair Extensions

DO’S & DON’TS! If you’re investing in a super luscious set of premium ZALA clip in hair extensions, it’s important to know exactly how to take care of your clip ins! Be sure you’re not guilty of committing these hair extension ‘sins’ with our do’s and don’ts of clip in hair extensions.

do's and don'ts of clip in hair extensions


DON’T wear your hair extensions in bed whilst sleeping! We know most of you are guilty of either crashing in your extensions or just leaving them in a pile on the floor! This is a sure way to knot & tangle your beloved extensions.

do's and don'ts of clip in hair extensions

DO store your extensions properly in our super easy & convenient Protect Me Bag! Hang those babies away and ensure they’re properly stored! Our Protect Me Bag helps to prolong the life span and give you the healthiest looking locks in their best condition!

DON’T bleach or lighten your clip ins! At ZALA, our sets have already gone through a long dying process to achieve their gorgeous shades! Therefore we repeat, DO NOT attempt to bleach or lighten your extensions. The harsh chemicals in peroxides and bleaches can cause some serious damage to the hair.

DO tone or darken if necessary! If you want to dye your set a custom colour, or feel the shade is just a touch too warm? You can safely tone or dye your ZALA Hair. Be sure to always test your product/dye on one single piece first. This makes sure you know you will achieve the results you love <3

do's and don'ts of clip in hair extensions

DON’T brush roughly or when wet! Much like your natural hair, brushing your ZALA locks when the set is wet can cause serious damage. Hair follicles are open and more delicate when wet, so you’re sure to make your set prone to breakage or shed excessively.

DO brush regularly and carefully when dry, tip to top! Always be sure to use your Loop Brush or ZALA Tangle Teaser to get rid of any pesky tangles. This will leave your extensions feeling silky smooth without the damage <3

DON’T wash too often! Clip In Hair Extensions can not recreate the oils to nourish the hair like our natural hair does. This means, regular or excessive washing will be sure to dry your extensions out and shorten their life span.

DO wash only when needed with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. You’ll be able to tell when your clip in extensions need to be washed. This is typically after product build up, or you notice a change in the appearance or feel! Not sure how to wash your clip ins? Watch our easy peasy tutorial below:

DON’T wear extensions to the gym or swimming! This is just asking for damage & tangles! If you’re a beach babe or gym junkie? Leave your extensions safely at home!

DO wear extensions with care & take lots of selfies <3 Show us your shots wearing your ZALA locks with the hashtag #zalacliphairextensions so we can see how you style your ZALA Hair!



Frizzy Hair Tips

With summer quickly approaching here in Australia, the increased humidity can really take a toll on your hair! Whether you have natural curls or straight locks, frizz can be seriously hard to fight! Not to worry – we’ve got your back. ZALA have put together these frizzy hair tips that will help you fight that frizz for always soft and silky smooth hair!

How to Fight Frizz – Frizzy Hair Tips & Hacks


Let’s start from the basics and talk about washing. When it comes to frizz, conditioner is key! If you haven’t heard of co-washing before, it’s the process of skipping the shampoo & only conditioning your hair. Sounds a bit scary, we know, but your locks will benefit from this and you’ll definitely notice an improvement in frizziness! And if co-washing is too terrifying, try simply leaving in your conditioner to the lengths of your of your hair for at least 5 minutes. This will be sure to lock in that moisture and fight frizz!


Once you washed your hair, it’s time for products. Particularly for frizz, products make a hell of a difference and is probably our #1 of these frizzy hair tips. Anti-frizz serums, leave in conditioners and hair oils are the perfect frizz fighters & mane tamers! Once applied to the hair, serums and other leave in moisture products will make all the difference to smooth down those locks!


After applying your serums, the way you dry your hair is key when fighting frizz! Instead of blow drying damp hair, let your hair air dry 90% before going in with drying tools. Too much hot air on the hair follicles can make your hair prone to frizz & damage, therefore air drying with results in healthier, smoother locks. Another drying technique is to pull your hair up into a bun or styled into a plait to be left with smooth & frizz-free locks.


Our last tip to de-frizz comes with a little TLC for your hair. Regular conditioning treatments will improve the overall condition of your hair whilst preventing frizz. We recommend hair masks once a week for those with naturally frizzy & curly hair, or once a fortnight/monthly for girls with hair prone to frizz. Not only can you indulge in a luscious & hydrating treatment, you’ll be making your hair super happy & look it’s best.

Struggling with unmanageable and frizzy extensions? Sounds like they haven’t been receiving the care they need. Not to worry, you can revive frizzy hair extensions with our super easy tutorial:

There you have it! 4 essential frizzy hair tips to smooth and tame your locks! Let us know the improvements you see, and be sure to mention your holy-grail frizz fighting hair products!


How to Clean Hair Tools

HOW TO CLEAN HAIR TOOLS. Yep, that’s right.You may or may not know, but just like makeup brushes, your hair tools need cleaning too! Overtime, a build up of product, dust, oils and other substances can reside in/on your brushes, straightener etc. It may not seem like a big deal, but you’d be surprised at the difference clean tools can make on the appearance of your hair!

How To Clean Hair Tools

how to clean hair tools

WHY? Just like applying the perfect makeup with clean brushes, your styling & brushing tools need some TLC too! Your hair tools accumulate a build up of conditioner, natural oils & other products over time. Just thinking about the grime in our brushes after weeks makes us cringe. Dirty hair tools can seriously effect the way your hair looks after brushing and styling. Which is exactly why you should be regularly cleaning your straightener, curling wands, combs & brushes!

HOW TO CLEAN HAIR TOOLS – HAIR BRUSHES. Start by removing all of that hair sitting within the bristles! This can typically done with your hands, however you may need the help of a pen to slide through & lift the hair out of your brush.

Now that all the hair has been removed, it’s time to get rid of the dirt & grime! This can be done easily by shampooing your brush. Simply fill a sink with warm water & swish through some clarifying shampoo. Wash the bristle well till clean and then let air dry or blow dry. Once you’re done, you’re left with fresh and clean brush just like new. Next time you’ll brush, you’ll notice added shine & smoothness!

HOW TO CLEAN HAIR TOOLS – STRAIGHTENERS & CURLERS. It’s as simple as wiping down the iron till clean. You’ll be able to visibly notice the grime that has accumulated on the side of your straightener. Super gross, we know! Take an alcohol wipe or rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad and wipe away the residue. Of course, this will need to be done when the straightener off yet still slightly warm. By cleaning whilst it warm, the remaining heat helps to easily remove any product build up.

Now that you’ve got squeaky clean hair tools, we are certain your brushes, straighteners and curling wands will perform like new! This also applies to styling your hair extensions! You can thank us later ;)

What we love about tape hair extensions is that you can sleep WITH your princess hair! But, this doesn’t mean crashing into bed to wake to a tangled mess.

How to Keep Tape Hair Extensions Healthy – Tip #4

Just like your natural hair, we have to give our extensions some TLC! Applying a deep conditioning treatment to the lengths of your hair can really help to keep your extensions looking and feeling super soft and healthy. Be sure to avoid the tape tab area & treat your locks every 2-4 weeks.

An extra tip is to space out washes as much as possible!
