Captivated: to attract and hold the attention or interest of, as by beauty or excellence.
That's just one of the things my boys do to me, I can sit and stare at their faces for hours and sometimes I do during nap time-yeah I'm that creepy mom-I can't stop and won't stop.
Sometimes the captivating spell my sweet little guys have over me has to put to a stop because, well, I have things to do and people to see and I want to look pretty and put together. Well I found the perfect solution to getting the best of both worlds it's called Savvy Curls! It's amazing for a mom on the go, but mostly because it's really unfair to waste looking at those sweet faces by having to do your hair.
This little hair headband has been one of the best things for my postpartum hair-people say that coloring your hair is most damaging, well I don't think those people have had babies. My hair was throwing a serious fit between changing colors, curling iron heat and of course having babies that it was going on strike and decided to start breaking off. I started using the Savvy Curls curling headband with Moroccan Oil during the day and night and my hair has decided its available for hire again.
When using the Savvy Curls curling headband, it took me a couple of tries to find just what I liked. Here's what I found worked best for ME:
1. Start with Mostly Dry hair 95% dry,
2. Wrap hair around headband starting with the front, I would grab 2 inch sections and wrap it all the way around the headband WITHOUT adding more hair, and leaving about 2 inches of your ends out of headband- I did this because I like my hair to look wavy; I feel that straighter ends give me more of this effect. When I wanted tighter curls I would wrap it all the way around.
3. Continue with same pattern until by whole head is complete
4. To finish I would tug the loose ends on the front to tighten the hair around the Savvy Curls curling headband so I would have tighter curls to frame my face. I would also loosen the back by pulling the hair that was wrapped around the Savvy Curls curling headband so that my curls would be looser in the back.
5. Then I would wait: fold laundry, do my makeup, play with the boys, go to bed etc. Just remember the longer you wait the curlier it will be.
6. After waiting I would test my front curl and if it had the right amount of bounce. If it did I just had to pull off the Savvy Curls curling headband by grabbing the front flat piece by my forehead slowly pulling back while bouncing it a bit, and VIOLA' like magic I had curly hair.
*I also found the if my hair was completely dry that I could either wear my Savvy Curls curling headband in the tub or turn on the shower to create some steam-this helped set my curls better during my wait time.
You may think you can get the same results using a regular headband, but sorry folks this headband was designed just for curling with the right amount of padding and support to give your hair the right amount of bounce. I would definitely recommend this amazing headband to anyone-short or long hair, young and old!
