Hi readers! I’m Christy. I’m a youth pastor’s wife and a mother of three.
Alison has been a friend and mentor of mine for over ten years.
She asked me to share this secret gorgeous hair hack that I recently came across and LOVE!
And moms, I think you’ll love this hair hack as much as I do! <3
First off, I have waist length, stick straight hair.
As a mom of three boys my busy mornings leave approximately five minutes to get ready.
Five teeny-tiny minutes.
And what have I resorted to because of only five minutes of pretty-prep time?
A messy bun.
Almost every single day.
While it can be a cute look, it was making me feel really sloppy and would put a lot of strain on my head.
I was even getting headaches!
So I searched for a time-saving hair solution that would still create a cute look.
I wanted easy hairstyles that would help me feel put together, without the fuss of spending oodles of time getting ready.
Then I had a lightbulb moment —– granny rollers!
My grandmother went to sleep every single night with rollers in her hair.
She used small pink plastic rollers that were torturous to sleep on (I was her guinea pig many a night.)
But her hair was absolutely beautiful — stunning even — and she’s still remembered for always being “put together.”
Following her inspiration, I went on a search for the perfect set of curlers and I found these soft, squishy curling rods that are soft enough to sleep on but long enough to roll waist length hair.
For only $11, they were definitely worth a try.
And the verdict on these super-soft curling rods?
They’ve been perfect.
After washing my hair I add a palmful of curling mousse, rub it through my hair and then let it dry until just damp.
Then, I roll my hair in one inch sections.
It only takes about ten minutes.
I sleep in these super-soft curlers all night.
In the morning I give them a quick shot of the hairdryer to make sure my super long hair is dry inside, and then pull them out.
The results speak for themselves.
The left image shows my hair immediately after I pull the curling rods out. The right image shows the curls brushed out with a wide tooth comb (and I painted the barn).
These curls last all day — even for a mom with lots of kids to chase after!
Since I started using these I rarely put my hair into my old standby bun.
And the best part?
I feel so lovely and put together — with minimal effort.
Hope you love my secret gorgeous hair hack! Be sure to let us know if you try it and love it too!
