Curly Hair

Blog-hopping I read that you can cut strips of fleece and use it to wrap hair around.  Sounded so easy that I didn’t even bookmark it – so let me know if it was you and I’ll give you the proper shout-out.

Anyways, we tried it and it worked great.  Just wind the wet hair from the bottom up to the scalp and then tie it – looks like this:

Wake up, untwist, and voila – super curls!!  The girls love the ultra-curly look – I prefer day 2 when the curls are looser, but all-around, way cute!

It looks good down or pulled back – –

Thanks for the quick and easy tip, whoever you are!

    My mom used to put sponge curlers in my hair overnight when I was about 5-6… With red hair, I was horribly teased and called Little Orphan Angie. Curly hair is so cute, though!

    My mom used to do this to me and my sister when we were kids, but would use old t-shirts cut into strips. I’m so glad you reminded me about it, I’m going to have to do this to my daughters hair!

    Manda, could you please elaborate? Normally, I’m really good at just figuring things out, but I’m lost. Could you do a little tutorial? Like, do you just twist the hair all the way to the scalp and then somehow tie the fleece around it or do you twist the hair AND the fleece all the way to the scalp? I feel like such an idiot asking, but I would love to try this. However, my girls’ hair is naturally curly, so I’m more interested at trying for myself. Does it work for adults?

    Are we aging ourselves when we say our mom did this to us when we were younger? :) But yes, these are called “rag” curls, as way back when they used rags to curl their hair just like this, and yes it curls stick straight hair (mine was and it was came out in ringlets). You may remember seeing it on Little House on the Prairie. (again aging myself) My grandma and mom used flannel but I think the felt would be even better.
