I curled my hair with PAPER!!!

Yes, since I'm stuck at home currently (because I have no car to use since my dad sold his Wira and is now using my Saga) and have time on my hands, I have been indulging myself with beauty videos from YouTube hoping to learn DIY tips to pamper myself. Hehe..Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Well, I learnt a lot of interesting things from Michelle Phan's channel. She has really interesting videos on make-up tutorials and beauty tips such as using food for beauty purposes and stuff. And whilst I was browsing through all those, I came across this video which shows you how to curl your hair using only paper and no heat. Shared this video here so that you may watch later:-

I was intrigued because I did read about paper curls in books (I read a lot of classics) but it was the first time I actually saw it being demonstrated. So me being sooooo free, I decided to try it out. As the video instructed for damp hair, I did this after I washed my hair. Sacrificed 2 and a half A4 papers for this experiment (my hair is thick) and took about 20 minutes to twist all my hair up with the paper. I looked like a grandma with funny rollers on. See:-I slept overnight with the papers on and then in the morning, I took them off one by one. And eureka; I had a head full of curls:-
Pardon the weird expression because I just woke up and am a super bad cam-whorer. Haha!! But anyway, it means that paper curls do work!!

Well, for one thing I don't want to ruin my hair with all the heat and chemicals PLUS if I don't like the curls, all I have to do is wash my hair and I'll get back my straight hair again; which you can't do that if you get a bad perm. And this is quite FUN actually. It can be a sleepover project or something to do just for fun.

A tip from me though, you might want to keep wetting your hair before twisting them up because the other sections can dry while you're twisting up the other side and you don't get such tight curls if your hair is not damp enough. Don't WET your hair please. Just dampen it. Also, the curls didn't last long for me because I have really stubbornly straight hair (that's why I never do anything to it) and it was wavy by the end of the day. Hair products like hair spray or serum help to enhance the curls too.

Aside from that, have fun. I did.Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

michelle's curls look really nice the day after she removed them.. but urs look nice in the photo.

can't agree with her about hello kitty though... i hate it. XP

i have sickeningly stubborn straight hair too... T--------T.. not to mention greasy... i can't not wash my hair for a day so i guess i can't really get the big curl look. T----------T
