Okay, I have some of the thinest hair ever. When I don't blow dry or strigthen it is gets kind of curly but not much. But that isn't the point, my question is, is there any way to make my hair into ringlets? Don't say use a curling iron because even with some of the best it still ends up terrible. Is there any alternative ways? Or is my hair hopeless?

The best thing to do is this: use a thing called rag curlers. My mom taught me this, and it's an old-fashioned way for great, easy curls. Google it and see if you can get actual pictures, but I'll explain it to you anyways.
Take an old cotton t-shirt [preferably thick; maybe a dad or older brother has some?] and cut it into half-inch to an inch wide strips, about eight or more inches long. Then take a section of hair and wrap the end of the section around the middle of the strip, and wrap it all the way up. Tie in a double knot when you're as close to the skull as you can get, and then do the same until your all your hair is in a strip. Then go to bed like this, and when you wake up, untie the strips. It works wonders & is a great way for natural-looking curls. [ misskatherine's advice column | Ask misskatherine A Question ]

jennalovesyou answered Sunday January 21 2007, 1:40 am: i used to do the same thing you are and my hair would just get wavy. so i scrunch it with mousse by putting it all over your hair but not a lot because it will get stiff and grab your hair (in sections) from bottom to top making it wavy/curly. but you have to do it when it is wet of course :P it usually dries more curly than it looks when it is wet. hope i helped!
by the way...it comes out ringlets. but if it doesnt work for you, then curl iron it
