Pin curls!

I love pin curls! They were a little difficult for me to master, and I will admit I got a little frustrated the first few times I tried them, but I am starting to get the hang of it and am really enjoying experimenting! More posts on pin-curls to come in the future, and maybe even a tutorial!

Messy Bun Curls

The other day I was running behind schedule and needed to put my hair up fast for dance. It was a little damp but I put it up into a quick messy bun anyway. When I took it out later these are the curls that fell down:

I did not twist them nicely or anything, just sort of scrunched it all up and pinned it in place. There was a little bit of frizz but the volume was great!

Sock Bun

A sock Bun is a method for curling your hair without heat. There are many different sites that have information about this method, and there is a great tutorial with instructions and pictures here. There are also videos on how to do it on YouTube. You just need one old sock with the toe cut off and one hair elastic.

Basically, you cut the toe out of a sock and roll it into a doughnut. Then you put your hair into a ponytail using the hair elastic and wet it a little with water in a squirt bottle. Then pull the ponytail through the doughnut you made. Holding the doughnut near the ends, wrap the ends around the outside of the doughnut and up through the bottom. (Don’t get discouraged, this is much easier said than done.) Start rolling the doughnut “out” and down your ponytail towards the base. When you get to the bottom don’t bother securing it, it stays in place by itself! I sleep crazy and toss and turn a lot, but trust me, it stays in.

Now in the morning unroll the doughnut and take the elastic out gently. Start separating the curls and gently shaking them. I would recommend using hairspray. I have naturally curly hair that usually holds other curling methods fine without hairspray, but the curls that this created started to come out later in the day.

Note: This only creates large curls on the lower half of your hair.

Plop Overnight

I plopped overnight with Aubrey’s B5 gel, and scrunched in a tad bit more gel in the morning. I think I need a bigger t-shirt square that will go around to the top of my head like the Live Curly Live Free meathod calls for, because it fell off in the middle of the night again.:]

I think the plop worked pretty well this time! Yay!

Plop with aloe

Best results from any of my experiments so far, but still a little flat in the back. This was a few days or so after my first olive oil deep treatment. I plopped all night with Fruit of the Earth aloe, which I no longer use because of the bad ingredients (bummer). These were taken in the morning after styling from the plop. I don’t think they were this good later in the day, but still great!
