Over the past year or so I’ve been trying to take better care of my hair. I’ve been lucky in that my hair has been kind to me even though I’ve treated it horribly over the years. Many other peoples hair probably would have not been as kind to them with all the drugstore dye, heat and various other infractions. On the journey to better hair I’ve started taking Vitamins, limiting how often I wash my hair and I’ve thrown away the box dye and for the most part use heat very rarely on my hair. My hair is fine but I have a lot of it so in a way it could be classified as thick. I don’t think my hair is thick but according to my hair stylist JoAnna, I have a lot of hair. My hair is also stick straight so of course I wish it was wavy/curly (always wanting what you don’t have….) The picture you see below is me doing nothing to my hair, it was washed earlier in the day and left to air dry.
Headband curls are something that I’ve seen for awhile on Pinterest but until last year when I cut my hair it was really too long to attempt this! As I said my hair was washed earlier in the day and before I started the process I put some sea salt spray in my hair (check out this link to my post about making your own! ) and made sure to run my wet brush through my hair to evenly distribute the spray. Next all you do is put an elastic headband over your hair and wrap your hair around it! I’ve included a few links to videos and other blog posts that show you how to do this if you still need a little more explanation.
When I undid my curls the next morning I used a little hair spray and just ran my fingers through to break up the curls. Of course I did this experiment on a day when I wasn’t doing anything but running some errands and vegging on my couch! If I was going out with this hairstyle, I personally like a little more lift at my roots so I would have added a volumizing powder or spray and teased the crown and sides a little.
This is definitely a Pinterest win and I will be doing this style again for sure!
