Curling your hair using paper

Ever run out of curling tools as well as curlers or rollers..Well, there are other means to set your hair... use paper.  One of our technicians at work told me that she curled her hair using paper.  I was skeptical at first but when i saw her pictures.... the first thing I  did was to test it out on my daughter. Lol!
Having a long vacation due to the bad weather, her school decided to have Saturday classes to make up for the lost time.

This is one of the rare occasions where I could actually take care of her necessities since I am usually home during the weekends.

She was ecstatic when I was going to do her hair. Her classes starts at  1 pm today.  We decided to curl her hair for today.

This is what she looks like before we set her up.

What you need is an old magazine or any sturdy paper and fold it into 1/2 - 3/4 inch width.

Section the hair into layers.  For this do, since we wanted soft curls, we just sectioned it into 3 layers.  Thicker strands per paper.

Roll the hair in the middle of the paper just like what you normally do with rollers or curlers.  Once you get to the desired length where you wanted to end the curls, tie both ends of the paper to lock it.  Press the knot and the hair to secure it firmly.  Note:  Do not pull too hard. The paper may tear.

Proceed with the next layer and repeat the procedures.  For the topmost layer, ensure to comb your hair depending how you want your hair to fall out.  In this case, my daughter wanted to do a one-sided break.

I did this this for less than 10 minutes :)  I started at 10 and at around 11:30, I sprayed a little bit of normal hold hair spray so it wont flake much.

After 15 minutes, I removed the paper and this is the initial result. 

This is now her school hair for the day :D

DADDY's Comment:
"San kayo pupunta?...Sa school o sa fashion show?"  LOL!!!

NOTE:  If you want smaller curls, use more layers and thinner batches of hair and longer setting.

Enjoy :D
