Curl your hair easy, cheap and with no heat:)

This is a method I learned a long time ago, back in the day when I was too young to even own a curler. Now that I'm older and I've put my hair to alot, I think it comes in handy for many more reasons: it doesn't fry your hair, it's easy and it's cheap! So let's get started!

What you need:

Paper bags, scissors, hair elastics.

1 Wash your hair and let it dry until damp; wet hair will soak the paper and destroy it.

2 Cut or tear the paper bags into strips that are about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inches wide and 8 inches long. And cut the ends off with the scissors.

3 Divide your hair in 2 sections, and tie the crown part up in a bun so you get it out of the way while you work on the down part.

4 Take a small section of your hair and lay one paper bag strip horizontally across the bottom of the section of hair. Start winding the hair around the paper bag strip starting at the bottom and ending at your head. (determine how small or large you want your curls to look: smaller sections of hair will result in small curls, while larger sections will result in large and bouncy curls).

5 Once you got to the top of your head you need to secure it. You can do so by twisting the ends of the paper bag around each other two times. Repeat with every section of your hair that you want to curl, and we're done!

Now you can:
a) Wait until your hair is fully dry.
b) Blow dry on cool air.
c) Or if you do it in the night you can go to sleep in them or during the day take a nap.

When your hair had dried take out the paper by gently twisting it off your hair. You can apply moose, hairspray but try not to brush it too much.

Note: You can also do this with platic bags and paper towels. Cut strips of plastic bags. Fold the paper towel in 4 and then wrap it around the plastic bag strips. This method makes rolling the hair around it slightly easier.
