So my quest to find the perfect heatless curls method for my thick medium length textured hair continues. After seeing the sock bun mentioned so frequently on Pinterest, I looked up a video on Youtube and decided to give it a whirl!

Sock bun curl results:
Holy crap did this look terrible!! It was all pouf and no curl. All crimp and no wave. BLAH! I read quite a few blog posts on it and it seems that if you don't get all of your hair in the sock, it turns out crimped more than curled. I think I'm going to let my hair grow a bit longer and then try this method again. HOWEVER, I am definitely going to be using a sock to make my buns from now on. It looks fantastic and stays amazingly!
