So today I wanted to share my current obsession (actually I have yet another new one already) Pin Curls!
Let me tell you, I LOVE pin curls!!!!
What do I love about Pin Curls?
EVERYTHING! Since I have fine natural hair I tend to look for styles to helps to give me volume and the illusion of more density and pin curls give me that….they give me life! Generally I normally like to style on dry hair or slightly damp hair because I get more volume if my hair is not really wet but with pin curls regardless of whether I start on freshly washed hair or dry hair I adore the results! In my demo I did medium sized pin curls on freshly washed hair which gave me medium curls with bounce but they can be made smaller for tighter results or bigger for looser curls.
- Water (to keep my hair damp)
- DIY Boosted Spray Leave-in Conditioner
- DIY Rose Water Hibiscus Flax Seed Spray Gel
- Argan Oil
- Wide Tooth Comb
- Bobby Pins
- Afro Pick
My styling process (especially when I start on wet hair) is to
- Set the Pin Curls
- Allow them to air dry
- Cover with a silk/satin scarf overnight
- Take down the bobby pins, separate the curls and style my hair (the following day)
However, there are times when I have to go out after setting my hair (example on the day when I recorded my video) so on those days I do my faux huge headwrap.
No one knows my hair is curled up, pinned down and not in a big bun underneath and I don’t have to go out looking a little peculiar 😉 Then the following day I take down my hair and voila!
Here is my video of the process:
I would love to hear what you think! Do you do pin curls, would you try them?
