Well, ok “changed my life” is a bit dramatic, isn’t it? But as a working mom with a toddler and an infant underfoot in the mornings, I have basically three dedicated minutes to do my hair. A youtube video for “No heat curls” has been making the rounds in the blog world recently and after watching it, I decided to give the hair trick a try. I washed and dried my hair and followed the easy wrap technique using a stretchy headband. I swear I heard a chorus of angels singing the next morning when I removed the band. My straight locks were full of pretty curls. Even better – it didn’t require 30 minutes of curling and hairspray and all of the not so fun work that usually comes along with getting curls.
5 minutes and a good night’s sleep (well, as good as you can sleep with a hungry three month old) is all it takes!

Another thought – these would also be perfect for school aged girls who want pretty curls. No sleeping on uncomfortable foam rollers or worrying about burns on little heads from regular curlers!
If you give it a try, let me know how they turned out!
