As I stumble out of bed, quite literally, I grab my elastic on my nightstand and do my usual #momhair which consists of a messy bun or high pony. I need to get 3 kids off to school and nurse my baby at some point. I look over at the counter and smile seeing the lunchboxes piled on top of each other, ready to go and prepared with love by my awesome husband. Do I drop off kids in my sweats and momhair? My kids are too young to be embarrassed. Mom hair and sweats for the win.
I’m sure many of us have days like these right? While I love being comfy and casual most days (read joggers and slouchy tee) I also love getting ready for the day by doing my hair and makeup and maybe putting on non elastic waist pants. Let’s take baby steps though. So one thing that I have found to tame these tresses is a thermal insulating headband that produce these glamorous curls. I don’t damage my hair by using Savvy Curls plus I don’t lose that time I would have spent curling my thick hair. While I am wearing this I was doing dishes, responding to emails and feeding my baby. Gosh I love multi-tasking. Efficiency is key here. We all have limited time and we choose the things we will give our time to. For me, I will invest those 5 minutes it takes to put on the headband and curl my hair to have a day that I feel put together and productive.
So that’s my before hair above. Not terrible. But then I see what 5 minutes can do. I don’t count the time that it’s in my hair because I am doing other things in the meantime. I have worn it overnight as well as for an hour or two before I have to leave. I also don’t have to choose whether I do my hair or do the dishes. I can do both!
I start out by misting my hair with water. Then I apply a bit of mousse and hand comb it through my hair. Then I place the Savvy Curls single headband on top of my head in between my hairline and forehead. I have the Savvy Curls double headband which is for longer hair or thick hair. I used the single for looser and wider curls.
Split the hair in half on the sides as if you are doing pigtails. Starting at the front, grab a section of hair and wrap up and around the headband. Grab the next section of hair with the first section included and wrap around again until you read the center of your head. Then grab the front section of the other side and repeat on this side. Once you have wrapped all the sections, wrap the middle section around the headband and secure with a bobby pin.
Now you can do whatever you need to do for an hour or two. Or sleep in it. Up to you what you do with this precious time- your hair is being pretty much done for you so enjoy the extra minutes freed up.
You can unwrap the hair in sections to pull it out or just pull the headband out. I like the dramatic pull to reveal this glamorous looking curl. Gotta look forward to something glamorous right?! Let me tell you why I like this curl: it looks natural, effortless and low maintenance. I don’t want it to look like I just spent 45 minutes on my hair when I claim that I have no time for shenanigans! While it doesn’t look like I spent those precious minutes on my hair, it does look like I actually put some thought in my appearance.
After 8 hours this is how it held up. Again, feeding my babe while enjoying the fruits of my labors- 5 minutes of twisting my hair on a Savvy Curls headband. If you like having extra time (while still having cute hair!) then you’ll love having a chance to win one of the single headbands!
