My youngest has hair like mine: fine, slick, and has just enough body to get ropey looking after a long days play. A while back, I gave these little squiggles a shot. The first time around, I did 2, one on each side of her head. The result, after a night of sleep, was a head FULL of cute curls. They were not really tight curls, but more loose. She wanted to try more squiggles next time around. I planned on doing four last night after her bath, but once I started, I didn’t quite get the proportions right, and the top was a lot thinner than the bottom would turn out to be. So I did 6.
This was NOT a good idea.
The curls were just too tight for her hair. I finger combed it all out, and sprayed it down with some water, but it was definitely a learning experience. Next time…4 squiggles. BUT, this looks fairly cute all up on her head. So this will probably go into rotation during the Summer break. I will, however, try to make them a bit “prettier” looking than they are in this picture.
