I have a daughter who, sadly, inherited her mother's hair. It's thick, fine and there's not a single curl in sight. And I have some serious concerns about using a curling iron on a little person who rarely stops moving.
Instead, I decided to try rag rollers, for an occasional day of curls. They're easy, cheap and comfortable--a perfect solution. And my daughter loves them--it makes her feel like we're playing dress-up.
1. Simply find some fabric (I used an old sheet), and tear or cut it into strips that are about six to eight inches long and 1 inch wide (for extremely long or thick hair, you might want them to be longer and wider--you can experiment as you go).
2. Take a strip of hair and hold the end at the center of one of the strips.
3. Roll it up (The first few times I did it, it felt awkward, and I needed an extra set of hands. You'll get used to it after you've done it a while.)
4. Tie the rag roller into a single knot at the scalp.
5. Each segment of hair will look like this:
For best results, do this at bedtime with hair that is slightly damp (not wet). Because they're made only of fabric, they're completely comfortable to sleep in. In the morning, you'll have a head full of curls, and they last all day!
