no heat curls (shauna reed style)
i didn't invent this.
but i have seen it done and then i have experimented with how it works for me.
this is what i have found and my funny little way of communicating how to do your hair like i do every day....though video and photos.
wash and air or blow-dry your hair till it's almost dry....like 95% dry.
step two: watch this (get ready because i talk fast...and repeat myself a lot)
some extra advise:
*the tighter you pull the hair around the headband the tighter the curl.
*i have done this over night lots of times....the longer you leave the headband in the longer the curl/wave stays...
* i've done this on ella and i leave her bangs out....still really cute.
here is some ideas for what to do while waiting for your curls to set....(just in case you are bored or something :)
here i am watching it...and maybe sorta crying.
talk to your kids and then make them hold a daffodil so you can take their picture.
the more you do this the more they will get used to it and humor you?
then realize that none of them want to hold flowers for a photo, but they might do some "football photos" cause that's cool!
nothin' like dirty little kids playin' football in their backyard.
then you could try the "do not smile" game to a sad little fella after he has a bit of an emotional melt down about his sister "borrowing" his hat....yes, that's snot.
then ask the kids what they think you should take a picture of...
then give them the gummy worm you were promising them the whole time you were taking pictures...
ps. here is my hair the day after the curl treatment.
no heat waves.
i like it equally as much...
