Wet Set Curls

In today's world of hairdryers, flat irons, curling irons and heated rollers it seems like most women have forgotten that before that technology existed you could get plenty of curl with a wet set.

Now let me start by saying I have bone straight hair, no curl, no wave to it, nothing. I could not get curls to stay in my hair for the life of me. I would curl my whole head with the curling iron and within an hour no matter what products I did or didn't use most of the curl would be gone.

Then I discovered wet set curls. Which are not only better for hair, since you don't have to use heat, they actually last..ALL day!

So yesterday I sprayed my hair with a little bit of water, and rolled in the sponge curlers. I got mine at Wal-Mart, but I know some dollar stores carry them too, they're pretty cheap and really quite easy to use.

It's kind of funny the reactions I get at work when I do this, I guess because it's normally so straight and the curls come out quite nice that I get them. I wore this red sweater dress today, that I've worn plenty of times before. No one ever really said anything about it. But today I wore the red sweater with curled hair and all of a sudden my outfit is awesome?!

I've used a couple of different methods on my hair to see what results I'd get. I've used bobbie pins and you roll up your hair with your fingers and pin them in and I've also used rag curlers. There a lots of great videos on YouTube if you're interested in learning. It's how I learned, try searching "Pin Curls" or "Rag Curlers" and you should find plenty of results.
