    instead of using a curling iron...

    Advertisements
    i know theres a way to curl your hair while its wet with like paper towels.
    like leaving it in over night. anyone know how to? my hairs naturally pretty straight and it gets boring. but it never seems to hold curls from a curling iron and ive used rollers before but they came a little too curled .
    anyone?

    i used to use foam rollers in HS. the bigger ones work pretty good I would only roll about half way up though otherwise I looked like shirley temple. and that wasn't cool.

    i should state that I had longer hair i just noticed your siggy pic and if your hair is that short then it might not work for you.

    with foam rollers I've found 1. don't roll super tight 2. get the perm papers so that your ends don't crimp and 3 you don't even need them to be in that long. I've had mine in as short as a 2 hours and my hair came out fine. but yeah the bigger the roller the bigger your curl, the smaller the roller the tighter the curl will be.

    thats what i was going to say!! when i had short hair even my natural curls didnt turn out well. my friend has pin straight hair and she uses hot sticks? i think thats what they are called. it works on her hair when its 2-3 inches below shoulder length. she uses that and A LOT of hair spray

    Maybe you're thinking of rag curlers (from what you said about using paper towels.) They make the curls a bit looser than using foam curlers. You basically cut up a bunch of strips of fabric (my mom used to use old sheets) and then roll your hair around them. When you get it all rolled up, tie the strips in a knot so they don't un-roll. Do it when your hair is damp at night, then you wake up with curls!

    How about large regular rollers, or hot rollers?
