I recently tried x3Haha's Tutorial on how to get pretty curls with NO heat! It's a great idea. Check out her video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxfllJNdqxQ
I tried this out. In her video she has longer hair, so I didn't get the same ending result as her, but I did get some pretty awesome curls. I used pencils for my curls, and the next time I try this, I'm going to use markers. I did this on freshly washed hair and before I started wrapping my hair around the pencils I quickly blow dried my hair and applied some curl boosting leave-in conditioner. Then, I began the wrapping.
She suggested leaving the pens/markers/pencils/etc for about 1.5 hours. Now, even though my hair is really fine, I have a lot of it, so I left them in for a little over 2 hours. While I waited I fed my rabbit and watched an episode of Glee and Parenthood. I also helped my brother with his math homework. Then I started taking the pencils out. And this was my end result:
I added a little bit of some extra strength curling cream and some hair spray. I tousled my hair a little bit and now I'm enjoying the rest of my day. I hope you enjoyed and please check out the maker of this idea here: http://www.youtube.com/user/x3Haha?feature=watch
Until next time!
