Hey babes. Here is Alix and Brette (more on her later!) . Two foxy fine haired babes, both long hairs, both low-maintenance, both ShamPHree. I told them that I wanted to give them rag curls, and Brette insisted that nothing made her fine hair hold a curl.
I grabbed an old scarf and cut it into long 3 inch strips and challenged their hairs to a curl-off. Put the rags in their damp hair at sundown, scarfed em, and then brushed em out in the morning. Their hairs stayed curled all day, starting out like Veronica Lake and ending like a 1970’s wave-curl at the end of the day.
If you have fine hair, no-heat curls are the way to go. Curls set with water are chemically guaranteed to last. The hydrogen bonds inside the hair gets broken with water and rebuild when the hair is dry. These bonds will last until the hair gets wet again, therefore creating a lasting and damage-free curl on any hair type. It’s science! DO it!
By the way….There exists a Vintage Hairstyling Bible for which I find massive inspiration and here it is.
