A Post About Hair...
Lately, the girls and I have been into trying new things with our hair. This past week I've braided my girls hair into about 12 sections after their nightly shower and they've kept them in to dry overnight. When they wake the next morning, we slide all the braids loose to find their hair full of little waves. They love being able to get a little curl to their hair. Their intentions are to let their hair grow back out so that they can do the sock bun curls that I've found easy to do to mine.
I left a link above that I found which includes many photos of the sock bun process and two short instructional videos also. However, the video below is the original one I viewed and I followed her advice and I really love the results.
I tried taking a couple of shots in the bathroom this morning to at least give an idea of the results I achieved. My bathroom is an icky-to-photograph-yellow and my hair is so dark, it's hard to get the details to show through, but this gives a little idea of how the curls turned out. It was super simple to put into the bun and I pulled the bun out as soon as I woke up and the curls were perfect.
They've held up perfectly all day long today as well. I'd definitely say that if you'd like to add some soft curl to your long hair, this is a great way to do it. My hair is naturally curly anyway, but this method gives a softer curl than I normally have and requires no hair products to achieve. This was washed, blown dry most of the way, and then put into the sock bun. Nothing else. I let it out this morning, ran my fingers through a few times and that was it. Done. Easy peasy!
Now I'm off to search Pinterest for even more hair ideas to pin to my simply : beauty board.
