Letting Life Lead
My little Guinea Pig has allowed me a lot of leeway. Next on the list was bandana curls except I didn’t have any bandanas, but I found an adequate substitute.
I made asymmetrical parts in four sections in a configuration I thought would fall more naturally. Next time I think I’ll try an odd number of five. The “bandanas” are actually really cheap headbands that are completely useless as headbands, and couldn’t even be used as prefold belts. They are braided into the hair with two acting as two of the three strands in a standard braid. It took very little time to set in damp hair, and we let them stay in over night.
The set was easy to remove the next morning and fell into very springy corkscrew curls. They got better as the day went on, though not even these awesome curls can keep a clip in thin hair. It fell out eventually, but stayed in quite a while! Overall, a very successful no-heat curl tamer that was just as easy as the sock curls (pretty much the same as rag curls).
...in which I share all the writing. And you will love it, dammit.
Try. Try again.
