Sponge Rollers: How to achieve the Perfect Spiral Curl

Messy Hair Monday
I have been sleeping with curlers in my hair since I was in high school.  Over the years I have perfected  the perfect curl and now I use the curlers not so much in my hair but my peanut's hair.  
For this hair tutorial you will  need a package of sponge curlers, hairspray, & perm papers.  All can be purchased at any big box or beauty supply.  The perm papers are unexpected, but achieve the most beautiful, frizz free curls.  Isn't that what it is all about? 
I forgot to mention in the video:  You sleep in the curlers overnight.  It doesn't seem to bother the peanut at all.  I did it for years and it really didn't bother me.  This really works well when we have early morning church because I pull the curlers out and she has beautiful ringlets.  
Here are some of the examples that I mentioned in the video.  I apologize about the quality.  Note to self:  Do not try waking the peanut up to take pictures or finish her hair.  It will not turn out how you expected! :)
Small blue curler with perm paper.  {Look how happy she is!}

Second curl is small blue roller without perm paper.  Notice the substantial difference with the ends.  

Third  curl is medium roller with perm paper.

Last curl is largest curler with perm paper.

This is the horizontal roll, versus the top ones which were vertical.  
Watch the video for better explanation on all of the examples above. 


Love, Stacie

I am so glad that people are still using sponge rollers! I used them all the time when I was little. What a sweet post.

I love sponge roller curls! They are so unbelievably adorable! I haven't sponge rolled my hair in forever mainly because of the time investment! ;)
Such a wonderful post!

I don't know if it helps but since I am such a frugal person, I make my own leave in conditioner. I posted the recipe on my blog if you're interested.
