Photo Tutorial: Wrapping Hair in Rags
Yesterday I posted on how rolling my daughter's hair in rags produces much better curls than any other method. A bunch of you asked how you actually do this. So, by popular demand, here is how you wrap a girl's hair in rags!

First, take a small section of hair:

Then comb it flat.

Lay the bottom of the hair onto a rag, maybe eight-ten inches long.

Fold the bottom side of the rag up so it covers the hair.

Then twist, or roll, the rag up the hair, rolling it under, not over.

Roll it right up to the scalp, and then get ready to tie it.

Take the ends and make a tight double knot.

You're all done! Now repeat for the whole head. My daughter has quite thick hair and I think we used about 20 rags.

To see the final results, you can look at my first post here! Have fun!

Thanks for dropping by my blog! Since you're here, look around a bit! I've got posts on parenting, marriage, money, and tons more!

Paper towels also work if you're desperate.

We've used some that you buy that are basically the same thing, except that they had wire in them so they could be 'twisty tied' at the ends, instead of the time it takes to tie that knot. The curls do last a lot longer. I have fraternal twin daughters, and wouldn't you know it-the girl who has easy to curl hair is more the tomboy type, and the one with straight hair resistant to any curl is my girlie girl! There is also a cream that can be put in the hair like conditioner that will cause the hair to curl more.

what a memory - 40+ yrs ago they put my hair in rag curls for a cousins wedding - then I got sick and had to stay home. Next day when they returned my hair was curly like a rastafarian. HaHa

Thanks, this was the best way to do it myself without any help!
