What’s Up Future Flippers!
If you’re like me, you know….on the natural hair journey and what not, then you are working hard every day to keep your hair in the best condition…which if you’re like me, means that it’s not often that your hair comes in contact with heat. Not saying that this doesn’t work for people who have naturally straight hair, or permed hair, but I figure you guys are more open to using heat on your hair than someone who is natural.
With that said, I decided that I wanted to curl my hair without any heat what-so-ever. Now you may be saying to yourself, “That’s impossible, your hair will have to come in contact with heat at some point,” but I have news for you non-believers….YOU’RE WRONG!
Sock Curls are the way to do it. What is a sock curl you might ask? Well, a sock curl is simply a curl that was created with the help of, well…a sock! It’s quite simple. All you have to do is apply some moose or styling spray to your clean, DAMP, not wet, not 30% dry, but DAMP hair. Afterward, you simply split your hair into sections, almost as if you were going to set it on rollers, comb it out, and wrap it around the sock like you would with a roller. To hold it, you simply tie the sock in a knot.
Now I shall not tell a lie, you will for sure get better results if your hair is already straight, because then it will look like REAL professional curls, but me being the lazy bum that I am, I refused to straighten and or blow-dry my hair. So I simply washed my hair, let it dry, applied a mixture of leave-in-conditioner and water (in a spray bottle) to each individual section of my hair, wrapped it in the socks, let it dry fully overnight, and my curls were AWESOME!
In conclusion I would like to note that there are great HOW-TO videos on YouTube if this wasn’t detailed enough for you. I recommend giving it a shot. The results are great, and it saves you one less trip through the frying pan!
I LUV YOU GUYS!
