Ok sweet new idea on how to curl you hair with no (or minimal) heat. You can curl your hair... with a sock. I know you are going to think that I am absolutely insane but it really does work. It reminds me of beach waves, which is a style I have been searching for lately. You need to try it, it really works!
Here are the step by step instructions on how to make this work.
First take a sock (it can be one that is missing its pair, or that you just don't wear) and cut off the toe of the. Now roll the sock into a ring, depending on your hair's thickness you might need to roll more than one sock together.
Now put your dry hair into a high ponytail, as high on top of your head as you can get it. I flip my head over and gather the hair to put it up. Secure the hair with a hair bow.
The next step is to spray just the hair in your ponytail with water. Generally I do this hairstyle after I take a shower at night and it saves a step. Also instead of spraying with water you can spray it with Beach Spray, (which you can get the recipe for on my blog by going to the link above) it gives it more texture and doubles as a hairspray too! You do not want it to be wet so just spray it until it is damp, or if you are doing this after you get out of the shower let your hair dry some before putting it up into a bun. Remember you want it to dry overnight so if it is too wet it will not dry completely.
Now grab your rolled up sock and put your ponytail through the hole. Pull the sock straight up to the tip of your ponytail. With the hair that is sticking out spread it all the way around the sock evenly, and tuck the ends under. Start rolling the sock down so your hair is being fed through the hole, then up and around the sock. Continue rolling until you reach the base of your ponytailNow simply roll all of your hair onto the sock until you reach the base of your ponytail. Try to keep the ponytail straight up while you roll so that the hair is taught.
When you are finished rolling the hair onto the sock you have a bun on top of your head. There is no need to secure it with anything else. It will stay put perfectly just the way it is. In the morning take down the bun and take out the hair bow. If it is still wet, flip over your head and blow dry the bottom (it prevents any friz from being as visible, and adds volume). I like to put spray on gel and curl definer in my hair to hold in the curls. Your hair might end up being kind of big, if you like it that way then your done! If your like me then you could take the front sections of your hair, pin them back with a hair claw, and then straighten your bangs. Simply Amazing!
