Hello to all the beauties of IMBB!
This is my first post ever and I am very very very nervous.
I was willing to write a post on IMBB from past few months. But was confused on what should be the topic. After thinking for 2-3 months (yes you read it right 2-3 months) I decided on to this topic. Hope you all will like it.
I, being a girl, always wanted to keep on trying different looks and yes your hairstyle plays a huge part in this. So recently I was looking for a cheaper way to curl my hair and a friend of mine told me about this rags technique, which is not even cheap but also harmless for your hair. So let’s get started.
1) Damp your hair. Ragging works best on wet hair (not soaking one). You can even use a hair serum or hair gel but make sure that the gel is not very hard.
2) Make sections of your hair and grasp the end of a strand of hair with the centre of the rag folded over it. (The size of the sections you’ll use depends on the thickness of your hair.)
3) Roll the rag up to the scalp and tie the ends together (if you want your curls to start from the middle of your hair length then roll them till there only). The type of curl you end up with depends on the tightness and thickness of the roll. I made my rolls very tightly and made a very tight knot of the rags as well.
4) Finish rolling all of your hair and go to bed. (It is very comfortable to sleep with the rags).
5) Remove all of the rags and style your hair in the morning as you normally would.
Thanks for reading and I hope you all will like this.

i saw this same technique on youtube by Michelle Phan 🙂 but she did it with paper bangs !
Good post 🙂
I tried it with paper as well but I found it much difficult so sleep in with them.
Excellent article Navpreet… well explained. You have beautiful hair.. 🙂 which hair serum do you use?
I use Matrix Biolage smoothing serum.

swati serum kind of holds the curl.

Whoa, this is some thing new. I have never heard of curling without heat , and this is simply amazing ! Everyone knows how much heat can damage hair, and if hair can be styled without heating – nothing like it !! Just superb ,and soo creative !!
yaar..ieven here i got a prblm..i tried dis technique..bt den ias i combed ma hair deit turned into a jhaad..i mean dey became so ..wat to say..jst clumsyy… :spank: :headbang:
jigyasa no matter how u r curling ur hair u r not suppose to comb them….
thnx navpreet :thanks: ..i didnt knw it.. :spank:
Gorgeous curls–liked them.
I was wondering what size rags you are using? I have found other sites that say anything between 6 inches to twice as long as your hair?
Navpreet..thank u so much..this tip has come just at the right moment for me…I have straight hair but scared to using chemicals or heat…I will definetly try this for my daughters 1st bday….
Wow its a very good idea of getting hair curlled naturally………
