How to get curly hair, without heat...
The Princess calls these heatless curls "the perfect curls!" We have been experimenting with many different no heat curling methods for awhile now and have finally come up with a technique that we love.
You may remember the bandana wraps (no heat waves) video we posted a few weeks ago. Today's curling tutorial also uses bandanas and looks similar to the original waving method when wrapped up. But, as you can see, these curls come out very different (as perfect ringlets instead of waves.) Bandana curls!
Shown above is a picture of what the curls will initially look like when you first take the bandana's out. Depending on your preference, you can choose to separate the curls, or leave the ringlets more intact. We divided her hair into 5 sections (using 5 bandanas total) to create these curls. Of course, if you prefer tighter or looser curls, you can adjust the amount of sections to your liking. The less sections you take, the looser the curls will be. If you are wanting to create bigger (wider) ringlets, you might try doubling up the bandana's for a larger (thicker) surface to wrap the hair around.
*3-8 bandanas (depending on how tight you want the curls.) We found our bandanas at Walmart for $1 each.
*Cloth covered hair ties or elastics
*Several hours for the hair to dry. The Princess usually sleeps with these in overnight.
