DIY-How to Curl Your Hair with Sponge Curlers

Well, I didn't think any of you would be interested in my DIY sponge curlers thingie...but surprisingly there are people anticipating my post-finding on them. Lets just say, i've been queried. Therefore, i'd go against the norm, and post up some pics of myself. Which i RARELY do......cos i'm anonymous ma...but what the heck.....

So these are those sponge curlers. They're often raved about in Taiwan talkshows. I bought 2 packs from Sasa which consist of 4 each pack of RM12.80. So i have 8 of them. However, 8 isn't enough. I need at least 4 more.....so the other 4 i use those old fashion, grandma curlers as substitute in which you will see in a bit.





ahem ahem....Ms.Fash in her lingerie.OOooo........ok stop staring at my fats and concentrate on my hair. Here is my before pic. I have really straight hair. This is after a wash.

So wait till your hair is about 90% dry.....Then you can start the curling process.
I use VO5 mousse


so that the curls can hold longer. Otherwise, it wouldn't even hold for 2 hours lah.....my hair is too heavy n straight for it to stay curly.

So this is after i've done them.
How you curl is to part your hair into multiple sections....
use hair clips to clip up loose hair and work them section by section.
Start with the tip of the hair. Slot them into the curlers and then roll upwards in any direction until the desired length.
Miraculously the hair will hold in the sponge without any fastening.


Sleep through the night.........Erm......its tad uncomfortable but hey beauty comes with a price....*winks*

When you wake up the next day.....take those sponge curlers off and taadaaaa!!!!!!

Gorgeous curls!! DIY!!! noneed to go saloon wan......
Of course, the secret to have them shiny is to spray some lucidol on them before you head out of the house.

Tadaaaa!!! Easy, breesy, beautiful.....covergirl! aha....ok.....just borrowing the line from ANTM covergirl ad. :O)



Of course, you CAN achieve the same results if you have the hair styling iron. I do have that too.........but it takes a LONGGGG time to curl all my hair and usually i do not have that time to spare to get myself ready for anything....especially work!! i only take 10minutes to get my make-up done so i have more sleeping time. hehe.........so with this option, i can do all the curling at night and when i wake-up, i just have to take them off and spray some lucidol and comb a little....thats it. Saves a hell lot of curling time!!!!

Hope you like this post!! :o)

hahah! Love the post because I get to meet your gorgeous long straight hair (which turned wavy miraculously!!) ;)

Wow.. I could never have the patience to do that... but this ball, where can I find them? Maybe I should give it a try?? Since I want curls for my reception...

Fashionasia said...

hehe....bought them frm Sasa. For my whole head of hair i need 3 packs.

angie said...

I love it!!!!! Will buy them. Right now, my hair is about 1 inch from bra line strap. Gotta wait longer. But will definitely try it.

So you spray the VO5 mousse before you put the balls right? Nice lah.

Jomel - yeah, think you can try too. Just slight curls below will be nice and suit your girlie pink dress! Yes, don't think I didn't comment means I didn't read ok. I've been following!

angie: nice hor? i didn't believe i can achieve this result too!! pleasantly suprised. Yes i apply the mousse on the strips of hair first then only curl. The mousse i use does not make my hair hard. But the curls will become almost straight by end of the day la.....if u use a stronger gel or something, may hold longer. But im not sure about the effect. I like my romantic curls like this. very natural.

Better than paying rm500 bucks to perm hair and end up spoiling it lor..very nice leh. First time hear abt the sponges. will go check it out.

Also I would like to ask a question. How long can we keep n use a cleanser?

Im using ginvera UV white cleanser (the complete cleanser, etc). I saw the manufacturing date is 0606. I think is June 06. Coming this June, it will be two years.. should I throw it away? I have about 40g left.

How long can one cleanser like this last?

Tine said...

Wow, the curls are absolutely GORGEOUS! Without having to subject yourself to the heat and chemicals somemore. I have to try this out sometime.

Jemima said...

Lovely curls! :)

Thanks for the tips! ;)

fashionasia said...

y3n: ya..dats what i thought too! i couldn't bare to spend so much to curl my hair...and i like the flexibility of being able to have straight hair when i want and curls when i feel like it.
Umm....about your cleanser, i would suggest you to throw them already after 2 yrs. Get a new one, because hey its your face we are talking about here. Better be safe than sorry.There are expiry dates for everything....i will suggest not to use anything more than 2 yrs...cleanser is relatively cheap unlike cream or lotions. Get a smaller tube if u use less. Usually, squeeze about the size of a 10 sen coin.


Tine: yah!! i agree. Very friendly to the hair. No damages because no heat or chemicals involved. Plus the sponge rollers threat the hair better than the other conventional roller bcos its sponge. With the rollers, i had a little bit of a trouble with detangling my hair.


Jemima: u have been very quiet these days... hows your moms condition?

Y3N said...

Thanks so much for the reply. I have i'm always off the main topic. aiii, but dunno how to ask question ler...

paiseh paiseh. thanks! I'll see what I can do with the cleanser in one month. I mean, is quite a good cleanser.

cheers and happy hair day!

i want straight hair I want curly hair. walah!

aiyu said...

wow...thanks for introducing this product ! :)

Your hair is soooo long and black and thick !!!

emily @ shinyshampoo said...

waa...
nice~~
and btw.. how the sponge will hung on the hair??

Chian Li said...

your hair is so thick, so black, so shiny! i likey ;)

btw i thought the lucido-L thingy is to be sprayed before curling the hair using curling irons? it is meant to protect the hair from the heat.

fashionasia said...

aiyu: welcome. thanks for the compliments.

emily: it will miraculously be fastened after you twirl it. am not sure about short hair though.

chian li: ya...suppose to be. But it did nothing for me if i apply them before curling. Its just like water oni...
