I tested it out last night, and even though I didn’t get a snapshot of myself this morning, it worked out pretty well. I was able to sleep much better last night…especially compared to using the soft pillow rollers — it was a big improvement.
The curls were much tamer than when I use the rollers…which I also liked. The waves are practically gone now, but I have to say than I didn’t start off with fresh, clean hair. So, I’m washing my hair tonight and trying it again. I’ll update you on the results later.
Anyway, here’s a video tutorial on how to create your own heatless curls. (Please let me know if you test it out yourself and what the results are).
UPDATE: Here’s some pictures I took today. I started off with fresh, clean hair last night…slightly damp. Slept with the headband all night.
I suggest that if it’s too curly for your taste that you take out the headband a little early and let your hair settle for awhile before styling it and spraying it with hairspray.
Another idea is just to create a simple little “updo” and wear it up for awhile and then later in the day let it down for a more casual look, if you like.
