My life has been changed, I kid you not. So, I filmed a little video tutorial of my new favourite way to curl my hair...no curling iron needed! Seriously, this is the easiest way to curl your hair ever!
You do this method on slightly damp hair. I found what works best is showering after supper and letting my hair air dry for most of the evening. Then I blow-dry my roots so they aren't flat. I do this before bed and go to sleep. Because the 'curler' in this method is a stretchy headband (as you'll see) it's super comfy to sleep in! No bobby pins, no wire curlers, no bumpy things keeping you from a comfortable sleep.
Confession, I actually wore my hair still up in the headband to church last Sunday after sleeping on it Saturday night! My hair wasn't frizzy & the head band was black...does that make it better? My hair was almost too curly when I finally did take it out!
Here are this morning's after pictures from that video's hair band curls:
Right after waking up:
The headband slid back while I slept, but no worries.
To remove just lift up the headband from the top of your head and gently pull it back behind your head.
Pull back and then slowly unravel your hair from the headband.
Here's what my hair looks like right after the band came out
I flipped my head upside down then shook out the curls and ran my fingers through the curls.
You could use a natural bristle brush and go through your hair to make it more wavy than curly.
Then I did a waterfall braid which I found a great tutorial for on the blog I Am Momma Hear Me Roar
Voila! Easy curls, no curling iron, and comfortable to sleep on!!
The blog where I first heard about this is A Law Student's Journey. She has tons of tutorials and cool ideas. Definitely check her out. The link above will take you right to her post "Easy No Heat Curls" where she has posted the original video I saw in addition to another no heat curl method called the sock bun. The layers in my hair are too short for the sock bun I discovered, but I would definitely try it again.
What's your everyday hair? Do you vary it day to day or always sport the same look?
