Have I ever mentioned that Mr. OverKill loves, and I do mean loves, my long hair? Sure enough, I have! Well, it has reached all new lengths here lately… I’m talking waist length…It’s never been this long.
Over the last year or so, I have been trying to figure it out. It’s long, frizzy, half curly, half straight. Sigh…most days I just put it in a bun or French braid. Styling it to wear it down is quite the challenge.
But, I am resolving to try a few different things to hopefully make this mane more manageable.
There are so many tutorials and great ideas on the web and Pinterest, but many of them don’t work so great on waist length hair.
My first attempt was the sock bun. You know, you roll your slightly damp hair into a bun and sleep on it. Website promise gorgeous curls…these were mine…
Hmmm…not really looking so fab y’all.
So, I decided to attempt curling my tresses with this method. (Note: I did not use the Moroccan Oil.)
After burning my hand, killing my arm, and waaayyyy too much time, this is the result.
But I’m doubtful they will last me all day, much less a few….
We shall see….
Sorry, this is what happens when you have an overzealous seven year old photographer.
Do you have super long, or unruly hair? What tricks do you use to keep your tresses tamed?
UPDATE: Had I thought it through, I would have waited to post this until the end of the day. After about an hour the frizzies returned. By the end of the day, my hair was a mess :( I suppose with more product this style might work for me, but it sure was a lot of effort for short-lived results.
