While I was browing pinterest I found this tutorial on how to make your hair curly without using heat (ETA: I’ve been told that link doesn’t work for some people so try this video tutorial– it shows how to wrap and take down the hair. I wrap mine less spaced out but use about the same amount of hair for each wrap) and I was all skeptical about it. Because I’m a wee bit addicted to my hot rollers. I’m from the south, y’all. But it totally works and is my new favorite thing ever, so I wanted to share my tips:
1) She’s right about wrapping your hair loosely. I instinctually wanted to wrap smaller sections but the first time I tried this I looked a brunette Shirley Temple. Turns out, that’s not a good look for me.
2) If you have really thick hair like me, use two of the hair bands. I wrapped the top half of my hair and then put on another hair band and wrapped the bottom half.
3) It’s totally acceptable to swipe an elastic headband from your baby’s stash if you don’t own the sort of hair band she recommends. Don’t tell Scarlette.
4) I didn’t put my hair up again the second night, I just slept on it loose and sprized it with a little water in the morning. That day I had very, soft relaxed waves. I like that look best because I like to pretend I’m an Olsen Twin.
