How to Curl Hair Naturally Using only Stockings

by Guest Blogger  Zanzan

I have poker straight hair.So while others long for straightening irons, i have always wanted curly hair (not that i want it alllll the time…but i have my mood swings :p . lets face it- i’m a girl )  ;) I wanted to try perming it but gave up the idea because i got scared of what the chemicals might do to my hair. I use a curling iron once in a while but inspite of using hairsprays they rarely stayed more than 6 hours.however if i don’t use sprays they straighten out in 3 hours(bummer!) So when i came across this tutorial in youtube about curling hair using socks i really wanted to try it. C’mon !curls without heat or chemicals …thats like wow!!

Here’s what u need to curl your hair

1.a pair of socks (clean ones )…i used old stockings(they’re more flexible)

2.water to dampen the hair

3. and of course “your lovely hair”

Tutorial: Curl you hair at home

  • Slightly wet the hair.
  • Roll ur hair over the socks like you would do with a hair roller and tie the ends. You can use more socks depending on your hair quantity.  I used only two because i wanted BIG wavy curls. And “its time to go to go to sleep”
  • The next morning , take off the socks and “lo and behold! You have the most amazing hair -friendly curls” . You can use hairsprays if you want but i wanted to see how long it lasts without that and i am amazed with the result!! 9 hours !! and even after 12 hours i still have soft beach wave curls.

    Hair wrapped around the socks and then socks tied together

Lipstick- Maybelline moisture extreme (bronze orange)
Blush- Faces glam on cream blush (peach glow)


1. Chemical + heat free

2. amazing staying power (upto 9 hours)

3. ideal for Dates ( Valentines’ Day)

Consseriously??? Lol there is no cons except you don’t wanna be caught walking around with socks sticking out of your head :p . so the best time is bed time.

Would i try this again? Definitely definitely and definitely!!!

P.S. before i used to think i need to save money to buy more curlers. Now i need to save to buy more “socks” J
