Curly Hair - Yes Please!

You know how it goes . . . 
Whatever type of hair you have -- 
you want the opposite.

I have curly/wavy/frizzy hair
and my lifelong dream is for straight hair.

Maddy has gorgeous straight thick hair
and she wants curly hair sometimes.

We've tried my hot rollers 
(I use them to defrizz my lovely locks), 
but the curl doesn't last in her heavy straight hair.
We've tried sponge and rag rollers and not been happy with the results.

Maddy and Oswald (Mickey's brother)

But, we saw some new funky hot rollers at Target@
and decided to give them a try!

They do take a while to heat up
and they did a great job on her hair!
I thought the curl would be gone within hours . . .
but there was still some curl left by the end of the day!
I'm sure if we had used some product or hairspray,
the curl would have lasted even longer!

She loved her curly-haired look!

That is always the way!! I have curly hair and straighten it with a flat iron. Natalie has gorgeous curls and cannot stand them. She always pleads with me to straighten her hair. It takes me an hour since it's so thick and curly. Then she won't wash it for a week. It's hysterical!

Maddy's hair looks beautiful both ways. So glad you found something that works.

Thanks for the tip. My daughter wants curly hair now too and I had no idea how to get them for her.

I have thick wavy hair, and still want straight hair. Actually, I blow dry it straight.
Maddy's hair looks so pretty, but then again, she's a beautiful girl even without the curls.
Have a great week!

I love her hair either way. My daughter, Erica, has thick straight hair and we use a hair curl product and then sponge rollers on wet hair overnight to get her curls that last for a few days.

Great find! You should try sponge rollers some time. They last for days! We love them!

Maddy's hair looks so cute. Josie has poker straight thick hair and occasionally she lets me curl it. She hates combing or brushing her hair. The battle of the hair. I wonder when that will change?

PS. You and Jodee were so sweet to send the get-well card and starbucks's gift certificate. Much appreciated.

I didn't know Mickey had a brother. I haven't seen him!

I need to try those rollers.
