DIY No Heat Curler Tutorial

As a child, I had ridiculously straight hair.  To the point that my mother chopped off all my hair in 4th grade because she didn't know what to do with my hair.  It never curled.  It was beyond frustrating to her.

By age 11, I was doing my own hair and had discovered hot rollers.  They made a huge difference in my hair and got that crazy straight hair to learn to curl.

    Fast forward to today, I've finally trained my hair to take some curl.  (Of course, pregnancy hormones also helped to give my hair a little wave.)  But my newest favorite method of curling my hair is making robe curls or no heat curls overnight.

    There are so many heatless curlers out there, but since they are basically just a strip of fabric and some scrunchies, I knew we could make our own.

    How long does it take for robe curls to work?

    That depends entirely on your hair.  Most can have curls within 4-6 hours.  But thicker hair may take longer.  Using a little moisture and allowing the hair to dry completely will help those curls set best.

    Trim the corners and turn the barrel right side out.

    Step 4
    Stuff barrel with Poly Fiberfil.  Don't overstuff the barrel.  You want it to be soft and movable.  If it is overstuffed it won't shape the curls well.
