So my quest to test out as many heatless curling techniques as possible continues. So far I've had some success with the french twist technique, no success with the sock bun method and great success with the headband method. Will sock curls be a hit or miss for me?
Reminder: My hair is about to my collarbone, with some natural wave and is pretty thick.
I used this video for this technique. I've heard of using socks as rollers before, but I'm really glad I watched this video because Yaya only used three socks for her entire head. I would have done a lot more and probably would have looked like a poodle!
LOOOOOOVE! This gave me full, voluminous waves. Kind of like if I set my hair with hot rollers. These babies held pretty well too, but started to frizz up quite badly. I think that had more to do with the weather though and my lack of product. I will definitely be using this technique again.
O, does anyone have a recommendation as to what styling product is best to use with these heat free techniques? I've been using a curling mousse on my damp hair and then a hairspray afterwards, but I'm not happy with the hold or the feel. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
