Sock Curls

Many of you know that I love to do Razy's hair. And boy have I been lucky with being able to do her hair. She has a full head of it and she LETS me do it. I think there are alot of mommies out there that have little girls who kick and scream and won't let them touch their hair. Well that is not the case with me. My wonderful two year old lets me do her hair and at times if need be will even sit for 15 minutes to let me do it. She has even been known to bring me bows and ask me to do her hair for her. I couldn't be happier!!

On sunday I tried a technique that I have forgotten about. I remember my mom doing sock curls on my sister and I, but had forgotten until a friend reminded me of it. Razy got a kick out of wearing socks in her hair and I was extremely pleased with the results.

Step 1: Divide hair into strands. (I only divided Razy's hair into 4 strands)
Step 2: Roll a sock up the divided strand of hair and then tie off. (I used Razy's own socks...Clean Ones)

Step 3: Leave socks in hair for desired amount of time. I remember sleeping with the socks in my hair. However, for Razy's hair I left it in for an hour.

Step 4: Remove socks.

Step 5: Gently pull curls apart. And vioala! Beautiful curls.
Razy usually has pretty straight hair. But the curls held the whole day and she even still had them the next. Definately a technique I will use in the future.
Stay posted for some other fun techniques I have done...or at least pictures of hairdos I do on Razy.



very cute!! Sounds nice and easy too, we love those hair-do's the best!!
