How To: Curl your hair with paper bags and no heat

Curl your hair with paper bags and no heat

This tutorial will show you how to take something simple like brown paper bags and curl you hair with them.

1) Start off with damp hair, not wet hair because that will soak the paper leaving it useless.

2) Get a few paper brown bags ready.

3) Take your paper bags and strip them down vertically...

4) With a pair of scissors, cut the ends off...

5) Now you have your paper bags ready....

6) Get your hair ready too, we are going to start rollin!

7) Take a small section of your hair and wrap the paper bag around it,

8) Pull it down, twist the hair around until you have a V like shape and while the hair is still wrapped in the paper, start rolling up your hair.

9) Tie the 2 loose ends into a knot...or just twist it. Which ever is easier for you

10) Now you are going to do this until you have no hair left to curl...

I curled my hair this way when I was 10 years old. Way before I started to play with the curling iron. This is a very old method on curlin the hair, and what better way to save your money and your hair than to use paper bags?!

I used to use rags to tie my hair up, but I love this!! I have a ton of paper bags. Thanks! :)

Nice:) i´ll try it...

it is so so so amazing n u r such a pretty gurlz

I tried this and it actually works I loved my curls but the next day waves were a lot prettier

you are so cute and pretty and I liked your video I didn't feel bored at all,, good idea also but actually my hair is naturally curly and I wish to straight it lol

okay legit i think this only works on asian people primarily, because im an asian guy and i dont need gel or mouse to style my really thick hair into a fo'hawk, i just need to put it up when its slightly wet and it will dry in the fo'hawk style and retain form until i gets wet again

wow! you make an awesome tutorial :D

I can't wait to try this! I've been looking for a cheap and curling iron-free way to curl my hair ^^ this really made my day, thanks!

I am a very rough sleeper and they are just gone by the next day!

hello kitty is kewl. and wow meh bro made fun you ppl who did their hair and wanted t o make a viedo and call it how to curl your hair with cheese

i have naturlly curly hair and the paper bags will just be gone the next day or i wint be able to take them out lol !

This is a really good instructional video. I only wish that I had longer hair to do it.

this is AMAZING! because i've always wanted to curl my hair but i never want to use hot irons and this is perfect!

this is so cool
i think im gonna try it sometime soon

too good very innovative


ycwuld u wanna curl ur hair if its aalready curly lolz :+}

thats so kool n its works 2 !!!!

yeaaah, I also make curls with paper bags! It's much better than any other method and curls stay for a longer time. The only problem - it takes me a lifetime to curl all my hair, it's very long. Thank you for the video! You're very pretty!

What a beautiful idea! But I think you have prettier hair than most people - or at least me. :) I'm still going to try it, anyway. Thank you very much for showing us how to do this and Happy New Year!!
