Using a lot of heat and product on hair can be damaging if done frequently over time. Not to mention all of the nasty chemicals and products used to achieve gorgeous locks! For those of us with shoulder length or longer hair, it’s nice to be able to have the look and bounce of curls without all the damage. Enter the sock! I was extremely skeptical when I first discovered this quick and easy video tutorial on YouTube, but it works! Simply rolling your slightly damp hair in a sock bun and leaving it overnight will produce bouncy and full curls. Another option would be to wear the bun during the day, as it looks great, and then you’ll have amazing curls for any nighttime activities. To maintain the hold, you can use this great hairspray from Aubrey Organics. The super hold version will hold hair while keeping it soft, unlike other products that can make your hair stiff or sticky!
