Today, I have a fun hair tutorial to share with you. I will be showing you how to curl your hair using a tool that you use daily- pens! Give this a go if you have some time to spare and if you have patience. Patience is the key! This is perfect for summer as it's doesn't require any heat. I despise using hot hair tools during summer. No, thank-you. No heat equals no damage. *Big tick of approval*.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Please note: You can try experimenting with markers instead of pens for looser curls. Preferably, if you have butterfly clips to use those but I improvised and used pegs. They did the trick too!
I started with freshly washed hair. If you are doing this on a second hair day, you can dampen your hair with the spray water bottle. You want your hair to be about 40% wet.
Separate your hair into two sections.This will help make the curling process easier.
Working on the bottom section. Separate your hair into two sections again. Now using a pen, wrap your hair around it like you would on a curling iron. Then, hold the hair in place with a clip. Secure the pen on your head with bobby pins. Repeat the same process till all of your hair is curled.
Okay, don't be alarmed. You will look like a hot mess for a couple of hours. Hopefully, the postman doesn't turn up on your door step during this time...might get a little awkies. Good conversation started though, no?
Time to play the waiting game. Give it about an hour, then feel if your hair is still wet.

Once you hair has dried completely, carefully unravel the curls from the pens.
Voila!! A set of curls from using pens!
To retain those curls throughout the day, use some hair spray and tease the roots for volume.
Like I mentioned before, you can experience with using a combination of markers and pens. I hope you enjoy this heat-less hair tutorial!
