Curly Girl

My daughter has been blessed with perfectly pin straight hair. I envy her, my hair is mostly straight except for this strange kinky area in the back.

But she decided last week that she wanted to have curly hair... so I sent her up to the tub and grabbed some left over fabric figuring we'd do rag curls.

  • Little girl with wet hair
  • Fabric to cut into strips
  • A night for her to sleep while the hair dries and curls set

Snip the fabric in 1 inch sections:

And then rip them into strips:

Take sections of hair and wrap them around the fabric, then roll the fabric up to the scalp.

Tie the ends of the fabric together and move onto the next section until the entire head is covered in fabric scraps.

Last - send her to bed...

In the morning, remove the strips of fabric, add some conditioner and you've got a girl with curls!


  1. Wow! This is awesome I always wondered how this was done!

  2. I allways wondered how to do that. It worked out really well...I'll have to try it on my own head now =)

  3. My little girl has Shirley Temple curls but begs me to "straight" her hair.

  4. How very cute!!!
