Sectioning Off the Hair

  • Separate the hair into four or more manageable sections.
  • Leave one section at a time to work on.

Pipe Cleaner Curler Preparation

  • Use pipe cleaners as curlers.
  • Start about two inches away from the end of each section.
  • Wrap the end of each section around a pipe cleaner curler, leaving space for wrapping it further down.
  • Securely fasten the tail end of each section over its own wrapped portion on the curler.
  • Continue wrapping and securing until reaching the root of each section.

The speaker explains how to install all 48 pipe cleaner curlers in her mother’s long hair. She also shares tips for faster installation. Finally, she showcases side-by-side results of both her own shorter locks and her mother’s longer locks after removing the curlers.

Installing Pipe Cleaner Curlers

  • Use approximately 48 pipe cleaner curlers for long locks.
  • Ensure that sections are not too thick to avoid prolonged drying time.
  • Wrap each section tightly but without causing discomfort or damage to your hair.
  • Push back each curled portion along the shaft of the curler to aid in drying and create tighter, bouncier curls.
  • Continue wrapping and pushing back until reaching the root of each section.
  • Spiral the end of each pipe cleaner around itself at the root.


  • Imani and her mother’s hair both have defined curls after removing the pipe cleaner curlers.
  • Longer hair may have less volume due to its weight, but it still adds significant volume.
  • Pipe cleaner curls are a great alternative for various types of locks, including dreadlocks and sister locks.
