How can I achieve one inch curls with less or no heat?

I have been blow drying my hair with a diffuser and going over the outside layer with a one inch curling iron to create the illusion of a loosened curl pattern, which I love. I have noticed, however, minor signs of damage to my hair, and while I do use a heat shield product, it doesn't seem to suffice in fully protecting my fragile ends. I am wondering if there are any other methods which you ladies use that are less damaging, and create the same look? I use the curling iron method for time efficiency, so I am not interested in something that will take two hours or even longer. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
