The Hair Dad shows how to make curls using straws
Here is a video The Hair Dad made to show how to do straw curls. The straws were a buck and the elastics were, too. His daughter didn't complain at all about sleeping with them, so they didn't hurt either. Check out that final look!
A couple people said their daughters' hairstyle was ruined when they brushed the hair out. Don't use a brush! Just use your fingers to pull apart the stands, and barely do that. The Hair Dad just used a water spray bottle to mist the hair and dampen it before we curled it. When completed he used a bit of hair spray to hold it. No other products were used.
