How to Curl Your Hair at Home with Some Rags

  • You will need clean old shirts or old sheets to make the rag strips out of.
  • Cut sheets into strips that are about 2.5 cm(1 inch) wide and 16 cm (6 inches) thick. Make the stips longer if you have really long hair.
  • Cut about 40 strips.
  • Wash your hair and let in dry naturally to the point where it is just a little damp.
  • Divide your hair into 1 inch sections (probably need some hair clips to hold your other hair out of the way)
  • If your hair is hard to curl you can add some hairspray.
  • Take one of the strips and lay it along side a 1 inch section of hair.
  • Wrap the hair around the stip in a spiral, make sure you leave just enough cloth at the bottom so as to tie the ends together
  • The tighter the hair is wrapped around the rag the tighter the curl.
  • Sleep the night with the rags in place
  • Next morning carefully unwrap and ta da! Amazing spiral curls.

    i dont understand how you lay the strip in your hair. do you lay it vertically, or horizontally?

  2. My New Hair says:

    You lay the strip vertically along your hair and then you coil the hair around the strip.

    I have done this before just to neaten up the curls I already have, but I was really in awe of the redhead in the pic, looks a lot like a young Katherine O’Hara! 🙂
