You may remember the bandana wraps (no heat waves) video we posted a few weeks ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVMH2llkrXE Today's curling tutorial also uses bandanas and looks similar to the original waving method when wrapped up. But, as you can see, these curls come out very different (as perfect ringlets instead of waves.) Bandana curls!
Most curls (without heat) techniques we have tried require sleeping on uncomfortable buns, knots, bobby pins, or curlers. We love this method because these "bandana spirals" lay relatively flat to the head, and the bandana's are soft with nothing to poke you! It did take me awhile to figure out how to wrap these vertically without them coming unraveled, but finally found a solution by binding pairs of ringlets together (as shown in the video.) An added perk to this technique is that the curls sitting next to each other are naturally curling in opposite directions, which prevents them nesting together and forming one big curl at the end of the day.
Depending on your preference, you can choose to separate the curls, or leave the ringlets more intact. We divided her hair into 5 sections (using 5 bandanas total) to create these curls. Of course, if you prefer tighter or looser curls, you can adjust the amount of sections to your liking. The less sections you take, the looser the curls will be. If you are wanting to create bigger (wider) ringlets, you might try doubling up the bandana's for a larger (thicker) surface to wrap the hair around.
*3-8 bandanas (depending on how tight you want the curls.) We found our bandanas at Walmart for $1 each.
*Cloth covered hair ties or elastics
*Several hours for the hair to dry. The Princess usually sleeps with these in overnight.
