Heatless Curls On Flat Ironed HairSaturday, February 20, 2016
What's the best "go-to" style when you're tired of your old limp flat ironed hair? CURLSSS!!
My hair is approximately 7 days post flat iron (I try to stretch it as long as possible) and I was just bored of the constant straight look! I wanted some curls and volume without the use of extra heat, so I grabbed my trusty 1" inch satin pillow rollers, my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Setting Foam Lotion and went to work! Side note - if you know me, I'm not a fan of using excessive rollers or flexi rods in my hair to achieve a certain look. I like to take the minimalistic route and use just enough rollers to cover my hair.
Products/Items I used:
1) Creme of Nature Argan Oil Foam Setting Lotion - I used the Creme of nature foam setting lotion sparingly as I didn't want to saturate my ends to the point of reversion. I used half a pump (or less) per section to set my curls overnight.
2) 1" Satin Pillow Rollers - I used a total of 9 rollers all over. I placed a satin pillow roller in the front of my hair for extra curl and volume to frame my face. For the rest of my head, I placed 4 satin rollers per side (8 rollers in the back and 1 in the front). To achieve the curl, I wrapped my hair around the satin roller, to create that coily "look", starting from the mid shaft first - not the ends. The satin material prevented my ends from frizz and drying out.
My Hair Before:
3) Satin Scarf & Bonnet - I covered my hair with a satin scarf to keep my hairline tamed. I then used my bonnet, for extra measures, to keep everything under control while I sleep.
4) Hicks Edge Control - In the morning, I used a little bit of my Hicks edge control to tame my baby hairs down. I used a toothbrush to smooth it down for all day hold.
Here are my results:
I enjoyed this style so much and I must say it was effortless! My curls lasted pretty much all day long, although they dropped slightly. The hold I received from the CON Argan Oil Foam held up pretty well without feeling dry or crunchy.
As I mentioned before, the satin pillow rollers prevented my hair/ends from drying out, which was a bonus! My hair had bounce, shine and body which is exactly what I wanted to achieve! Most importantly, it's heat free, which means guilt free :)
Have you used satin pillow rollers in your hair? How did you like it?
