How To Curl Hair – The 411

Wondering how to curl hair?

There are a lot of different ways you can go about, no matter how long, short, curly, or straight your hair is.

With all the new hair rollers and curlers and blogs out there, there’s really no reason why you can’t have big curls or long ringlets.

Here I am going to go over a few of the different ways on how to curl hair and which ones work best for the different types of hair out there.


Okay, everyone and their mother has heard of these things. Probably the newest of all the curlers out there, this type is different because it curls the hair inside of the curler, meaning that it protects your hair so you can sleep in these.

My little sister doesn’t mind sleeping in them, other people say they can’t stand them. I myself have never tried, so I can’t really say. I guess it really depends on if you’re a stomach or back sleeper.


I love what I’ve seen and heard of Flexi rods. A lot of people say that they’re not too hard to sleep in and the results really do last. I recommend these!

Spiral Roller Set

Okay, so I do own a complete set of these but I just haven’t tried them out yet. My sister got them off Amazon for me but they don’t come with instructions.

I’ve searched Youtube for a how to video but no luck. Basically you’re on your own until someone figures it out. Who knows, it may just be me?

Sponge Hair Rollers

Had to surf the web to get the answer to this one! I remember my mom used to use these back in the day! I saw a couple of hair do’s on Youtube done on some older ladies, but none that really seemed for my generation.

You could probably use these for curls on a braided Mohawk or to curl the ends of cornrows. It really depends on how you want your curls to look.


These things are really unique and come in several different lengths and sizes. The ones made for curly/biracial/natural hair are light pink and about the size of a pencil.

They’re pretty cool because they create really thin curls.

Snap-on Rollers and Brush Rollers

Now these curlers go WAY back. The problem with these types of curlers is that they can damage or rip out your hair if you’re not careful. I definitely don’t recommend these!

I hope that answers your questions on how to curl hair! Good luck!!!
