my experience: no heat curls.
no doubt you've seen the millions of youtube tutorials about achieving curly waves a la 1950s movie stars - all with no heat involved.
as a person with what some may call 'unruly' hair, i was intrigued by this notion.
my hair is the kind that has to have some kind of attention paid to it post-shower, unless i want it to culminate in a frizzy mess by 2 p.m. it's naturally curly, but as i have grown older, the curls have become much looser & only 'ringlet up' if coerced by loads of mousse & minutes upon minutes of scrunching.
bottom line: when i straighten it, it stays straight. when i curl it, it holds a curl. and it's very thick.
so last night i rolled up my hair (and thought about the grease scene when they have their hair rolled up at the slumber party) & wished for the best.
forgive me - i went a bit crazy with photo editing - i don't actually have green-tinted skin.
i think my hair needs to be straight before wrapping in order to achieve the ultimate desired effect with this technique. my hair was in its natural state last night before i brushed out the tangles & wrapped it up. next time, i'll wrap up de-frizzed, straightened hair & report back.
all in all, it does look pretty cool, with minimal effort. props to whoever started this little trend.
