*Crosses fingers for you*

I have naturally curly hair so I've never tried anything like this when I had long hair. I was always going for the opposite. :P

Also, cool posters!

Wow, can't believe the way she just tucks in a load of hair at the end... That'll just create a kinky mess. Which you can see in the last photo. I hope you didn't do that! Otherwise, it looks lovely :D

I kinda ended up with p**n star hair! it was curly, yes, but MASSIVE! Really big curls haha. its now in a top knot cos I felt indecent. Maybe I'll try a thinner headband or pulling it tighter next time =]

When my curls come out too bouncy and big, I literally tug on them and smooth my fingers through them a lot until they start to straighten a bit.

If you use a thinner band, you might get a massive 80s frizz perm hair!

I used to go to school with loads of girls with this hair


 :o



I'm just kidding, you'd probably get something more like this



But with the amount of hair you have (assuming you still have the extensions in) it's always going to be on the huge massive side!

I just found this photo too.



This was from the curlers that I used to use in 88-90. I can tell you, my hair looked NOTHING like that after using them lol

HAHA I love all those pics! Yeah i do still have the extensions in So I know they're gonna be big. but the actual curl was massive, like I'd used a 8inch barrel curler! I tried those bendy foam roller things once, actually had an afro. Never again.

lol yeah, that's what I get with a lot of curlers, the curlformers come out too tight at first and I have to pull and yank at my hair too relax it. The bendy ones I had with that photo on, they ended up as wire in the end as the foam squished and the curls were nuts, total afro... but I kinda liked it at the time. I'd still have to relax it though.

Anyway, I guess maybe this form of curling is always going to give more relaxed curls? I bet it looked a lot less porny than you saw it! Or maybe it's just too dressy for day time?

i usually just tie my hair in lots of buns when wet for curly hair. i look like side show bob when i take them out so op it into a pony tail until it calms down. it's super uncomfty to sleep on, so i may try this. do you think it'll work on short hair?

also i keep reasing this topic as 'heartless curls'

It might work if you use a thin band, maybe just one of those ones thats like a massive hairband/elastic? I might try one of those next.

also i keep reasing this topic as 'heartless curls'

I cant stop doing this now after you said that!

I've been wondering if it'll work on shorter hair. But I think the back would end up mostly straight with a weird kink at the bottom...

Or just a flick.

Maybe we need to bring back the 60s/DeeLite/Lady Miss Keir flick!



I am REALLY feeling my age today lol

Hmmm ... I can see how if your hair is already wavy/curly, it might make it go afro/p**n star, but for people who have hair like mine (fine, pinstick straight and won't hold a heat curl), it might just work!  I'm gonna try this when I was my hair this weekend.

My boything used to have that hair naturally, and he hated it. So instead of straightening it straight down, he flicked up the rest of his hair's layers all the way up to eyebrow level! He looked absolutely ridiculous. We joke about it lots, 'cause his hair used to bounce when he ran. :P

I'm toying with having curls for my sister's wedding, but after my prom hair disaster I'm a bit hesitant to say the least!

I used to do this when my hair was shoulder length and blunt cut. It what gave me my curls in my dp tbh, it's like my natural curls but it just makes them smoother. She says in the video that it's just rag curls but using socks basically lol I did it on wet hair too.

What the hell is with everyone just jamming the ends in! She just folds the ends under, that would give massive fish hook ends on me.

And she says it's better on totally dry rather than blow dried after a shower as there's water in the hair still... then she uses water. Very confusing.

But, still easy and a good idea :) (just people would tuck ends in properly) ;)

Well, I tried the headband method out of curiosity knowing it probably wasn't going to work. Oh dear, worse than I thought and not for me! Too short to get a good curl, I literally got one spiral halfway down and then a straight end. At the back I do have a Miss Lady Keir flip up, but that's not so bad. But as it keeps the crown so straight and slapped to my head it's not very flattering with the small amount of curl. Just odd :)

My now ex posted this monstrosity of my heatless curl attempt all over facebook, I had to stalk his page to find this. whaha. This was done with rag curls. I really wanted to block out my goofy face but it makes it more amusing I suppose! :laugh:
Also I tried the method in the video and it came out horrible on me! My hair was barely touching my shoulder at the time and layered. It came out pretty similar to the photo if I remember. Straight on top the crazy ringlets poofed up at the ends.
Einstien would be confused...

I tried this with the headband and ... I got a combo of ringlets and barrel curls that lasted for maybe half an hour and quickly dropped out.  Two hours later, straight as a pin again.  It seems my hair just doesn't hold curl, heat or no heat.  At least I found a cheap and easy way to test the no heat methods before investing in curlformers!
