I curled my hair with a sock.

No joke.

I saw this done on Pinterest, so of course the next logical step was to try it for myself.

I took a trouser sock that no longer had a partner, and I snipped the toe off.  I rolled it up until it looked similar to a scrunchy, like so....



 I wasn't planning on blogging about this, so I didn't take pictures of the actual process, but google it and I'm sure it can be found.   Essentially I...
1. Put my hair into a ponytail (I used a little kid plastic pony tail then cut it out after the sock was all the way on to prevent "the crease."  You ladies know what I'm talking about...).
2. Strung all of my hair through the center of the sock.
3. Pulled the sock to the very ends of my hair (that was rather difficult as I have layers), with just a tiny bit feeding through the ends.
4. Rolled the sock down, making all my hair roll under the sock.  It looked like an interesting bun in the end. (I know, that was way confusing.  This is where pictures would be really helpful.)

The actual instructions tell you to dampen your hair -- I didn't do this.  Why?  Because I was too lazy.  However, even without dampening, I was blown away at my hair when I pulled the sock out.

Ta-da!


Okay, I obviously don't have enough experience taking self-portraits because it took me for.e.ver. to figure out how to get a picture of the back of my head.  But I managed.  

I put a little smoothing serum into my hair (my hair is frizzzzz-y).  My personal favorite is the Grapeseed Glossing Serum from The Body Shop because it's not heavy and I like the smell of it.  =)


It took me all of 5 minutes (at the very most) to "install" the sock, remove it the next morning, and de-frizz my hair.  Brilliant.
