When my daughters were born I was excited on two counts. A daughter becomes your true best friend the moment she is born. Having a daughter also means cute clothes, hairstyles, accessories, and all the lovely girlie stuff.
But with great excitement comes great responsibility! You know you want to pamper your princess in every conceivable way, but you want to be careful too. I love working with my daughter’s hair, braiding and knotting, and decorating it with accessories. But I do not want to compromise on the health of her hair. Which is why I am absolutely against heat, blow dryers, and chemicals in her hair. Whatever must be done, must be done naturally.
This is how I curl her hair into lovely waves without using any heat whatsoever.
As you can see she has straight hair. It isn’t poker straight, but not curly. I love her hair and its texture. But sometimes she wants them curled.
Things you will need
- spray bottle with plain water
- rubber bands
Section the hair into right and left, down the center if you usually do a center parting, or a little off-center if you do a side parting.
Now divide it into smaller sections depending upon how small or large you want the curls to be. Smaller curls = smaller sections.
Start rolling the hair in the direction you want the curls to be in. I usually roll them away from her face. So it is towards the left on the right side of her face and towards the right on the left side of her face.
Keep rolling till the section begins to curl around itself. When it curls completely, tie a rubber band around it. Repeat for all the other sections.
Use a spray bottle to spray a little water on the curled sectios. You don’t need to spray too much water, just a little dampness will do.
Allow the hair to dry out completely. If your daughter has patience (quite unlike mine!) you can leave them this way for a little while longer.
Remove the sections one by one. Run your fingers through the curls. Do not use a comb.
Gather a section and tie a lovely accessory around it. You have a lovely hairstyle without using any heat or chemicals!
Is it neat or what? Do you love the look?
