Happy Days meme: Day Three

The "best" way I've found so far of curling my hair has been sleeping in perm rollers with newly-dry just-after-a-shower hair. The unfortunate thing is that these are twenty-year-old perm rollers, so the ones that don't tear half my hair out end up breaking when the elastic loses to the strain of too many years.

Last night I stopped by the Target near work (which wasn't the horribleawful experience I thought it might be) and stopped by the hair aisle to see if I could get some new rollers. I found some Conair Head-to-Toe spiral rollers -- I tried some kind of like this back in the day, so I figured I'd give them a shot.

They were harder to sleep in than I thought they'd be (when I do this again I will try a different pillow), and of course it's raining today, so the curl is already falling out and will probably be completely gone by the time I leave work for my fancy Christmas Eve dinner.

But for ten minutes this morning, my hair looked AWESOME.
Happy thing number three.

Shame the things that can't be bottled.

I like ConAir's Hot Sticks. They look like the ones you have except you heat them and don't wear them overnight.
I have really fine hair that takes a curl easily but doesn't keep it very long and these were awesome for me!
It doesn't look like they sell them anymore, which is a pity. But they have a ton of them on eBay. It bears looking into.
Also, for me, to keep the curl longer, I sprayed hairspray onto my hair while still on the curler and then a little again after- something with a light hold, no sticky blobby curls.

Good luck with the curlage! ^_^

Oh and thanks for the heads-up about Sherlock's Books. They are MADE OF AWESOME! I'll be signing there the last Saturday in March!

I just don't ever have time for hot rollers! (I do the hairspray thing too.) I'm getting a trim in a few weeks, and I'm kind of hoping that shorter hair will hold the curl for longer.

And yay! Sherlock's!

You're always beautiful, but that's a great picture.

You are REALLY beautiful. And your hair is teH AWESOME!

I can't believe I'm doing this, because my hair is about an inch long all over and to style it I put sticky goop in it and make it stand straight up. But I've been doing a bunch of writing for a haircare company at work and so I have to ask: do you use mousse before you set your hair, to help keep the curl, and do you mist the curls with spray to help it stay?

Lord help me I'm giving hair advice.
