A friend of mine sent me a link to this YouTube video recently and I decided to try out her method of curling her hair. Let me tell you that I love it. I wear my hair in a sock bun almost every single night because it takes close to two seconds and almost always looks great. If it doesn't look great, I just pull it back into a pony tail and no one knows the difference. A picture is worth a thousand words right? So I'll just post pictures and let you watch the video.
She does her hair with plain water, but I mix water, hair gel and leave in conditioner in a spray bottle and use that on my hair to help it hold. When I take it out, I spray some curl spray on it, which I think is just hair spray marketed for curly hair. The picture below is what happened after a few hours when I only used water.
And then this is today, I haven't washed my hair for a few days and it was the third day in a row that I had done the sock bun.
