This tutorial shows you how to get wavy hair without using heated hair thongs. You do not need to know how to use a curling iron and this method is less damaging to your precious hair.
AFTER: sexy waves
As most of my earlier readers would have noticed by now, I have done hair extension! I used to have shoulder length hair. I cut my hair at the beginning of the year and I totally couldn't stand it. I had to have it lengthened. And so now that I have long hair again, I took out my hair curlers and accessories again and decided to do this tutorial =)
I first knew about these cute curlers last year, when I watched the 老师 use them on the 女人我最大 show. These curlers not only look cute, but they are also made of sponge so that you could supposedly put them on at night, go to sleep, and wake up with nice wavy hair. I have personally tried sleeping in them before, but I must say it wasn't entirely comfortable! I was just worried that the curlers would fall out and in my semi-consciousness tried not to move my head at all.
These curlers are just cute, cute, and CUTE!! My mother bought the yellow ones (smaller size) for me in Hong Kong Sasa at HKD32 and I bought the strawberry ones (larger size) in Singapore at SGD9.90. Sasa is still selling these in Singapore and they have more styles now. They have those that come in the traditional curler style, but I just prefer these cute little ones! I used to see them on Adam Beauty but I can't seem to find them now. Maybe he is still selling them, just that I wasn't thorough in my search!
If you do not have these little curlers, I think you can use those traditional pink and blue cylindrical plastic ones, but you may want to spread some mousse on your hair before you curl them. A hairstylist once advised me to use a hairdryer to dry the mousse first before I start curling. I always thought that I must start curling when the hair is still damp!
1. Lightly spritz your hair with a mild hair styling product (I guess you will have to skip this step if you intend to sleep with the curlers overnight). I used the Goldwell Ultra Volume leave-in boost spray here. It provides my hair with some volume and leaves my hair slightly stiffer (when dry) such that the curls will stay longer.
2. Take a small section of you hair at your crown of your head and start curling from the ends to the roots.
5. Use the smaller curlers (yellow) for longer hair. Use the larger ones (strawberry) for shorter hair.
I used 6 strawberry and 8 yellow curlers for the whole head.
Sorry! Just can't resist making faces in this =)
8. Wear a shower cap to keep the heat in. This will also ensure that your curlers do not keep moving about and fall off!
The curls usually can last for the whole day, if you finish off with some extra hold hair spray. At the end of the day, the curls will become more relaxed and less curly.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial!
