Make Your Own No Sew Hair Curlers

Picture of Make Your Own No Sew Hair Curlers

I’ve been around the web and I’ve seen different ways for us to roll our hair minus store-bought rollers or curling irons.  You can pin curl or flat pin curl (yes there is a difference) , rag curl, foil curl , or you can make some curlers by sewing or crochet a set and go to it.

Me, I like rollers/curlers, didn’t own any at the moment, and decided yesterday that by golly I was going to have some; the thing is though I wanted something quick that was no sew because I didn’t feel like taking out the sewing machine …

So here you have it,  panty hose (nylon stocking)

Step 1: Gathering Supplies

  • You'll Need
  • hose (used and washed is fine even if there was a small snag) you get 4 rollers per, ya ken?  You do the math on how many you’d like.
  • scissors
  • polyfill (or stuffing from old pillow)
  • cap to Tresemme moose (if you have it, to help measure stuffing)

Step 2: Cut

Tie knot about 1 and 1/2 inch from one end, leaving other end open for now

Step 5: Get Filling Ready

Take handful of pillow filling to stuff your curler. I use the lid from my Tresemme mousse to measure the correct amount, I stuff that til it won't stuff any more and that's the correct amount. If you don't have a cap for the mousse anymore just eyeball it.

Step 6: Stuff

Stuff your stocking with the filling. It should be the size of a medium potato.

Step 7: Tie another knot

Tie a loose knot to hold your stuffing in like this for bigger curls. Feel free to use a permanent marker and put a smilie face on it.

Step 8: Use
