Bonjour les Amis… and merry Christmas!!!! Savannah here, finally back on Joyfully You and so excited to share my new favorite way to curl my hair!
Probably like many of you during this crazy time of the year, my life has been insanely hectic! The holidays have always been a time highlighted by so much joy, but I have found that this year, though those joys have not been absent, there has been much sorrow and trials mingled in as well. It has been hard to see things the way Jesus would, focus on Him, and keep my priorities straight. However, though the Devil is trying so hard to steal my joy, God has allowed me to understand more of the gravity of what He did when he sent Emanuel–or God with us–down to earth. A good friend gave me a verse and it has continued to pop into my head over and over this last week. It as given me a peace that surpasses all understanding this holiday season and I hope that it will give you some of that peace as well.
“Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall be made level, and the rough places a plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken” (Isaiah 40:4-5).
God sent his son to dwell among us and is truly present with us no matter what! He comforts his people and continues to marvel me with his amazing love! All this to say… I want to challenge you all to continue to keep your eyes on Christ this season and find your rest solely in Him!
Now…. without further ado.. let’s dive into this amazing way to curl your hair!
Curling your hair with a head scarf
Curly hair adds a nice touch to ones appearance, but do you ever cringe when you use heat on your hair?… it just feels so unhealthy, you know? However, curling your hair without heat always just seems like a hassle! I seriously own three different overnight curlers but rarely use any of them… they take soooo much time.
This new way, however, is a miracle worker. It is easy, quick, beautiful, and (best of all) free from heat!!!!
I am always trying to find different and easy ways to curl my hair! I literally think I have tried them all; however, this one probably worked the best for me! With this method your hair is cute even while the scarf is in your hair (I have worn it to town and gotten several compliments!), it is comfy to sleep in, the curls themselves are beautiful, and they last forever (I went to basketball practice at 4:30 for two hours and the curls relaxed a bit but stilled stayed in!).
Here is how you do it!
Important Note!: If you want thicker curls, go with a thicker scarf. If you want small, tight curls go with a thin scarf and keep your work tightly wrapped!
Continue to do these steps over and over until you have run out of hair to pick up.
Now repeat the entire process on the other side! YAY!
Yippee!!! All done! This style takes me about 5 minutes to do on my own hair… and I think it is much easier than French braiding!
Note: The piece of hair on the side closer to your face will always have less hair in it than the side that picks up from the back of the head! That is no biggie! Don’t worry!
FINAL PRODUCT PICS!!!!
This is definitely a “must try” style that I adore! I can’t wait for you all to experiment with it for yourself. It may be just the perfect thing to do on Christmas Eve if you are wanting that curly-hair look… Or, if you are like me, you may just like the beautiful wrapped-scarf look and want to keep it in your hair (forget the curls! lol). Make it your own!
Hope your holidays are filled with many blessings and much joy! Love you Friends!
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. . . The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him” (John 1:5, 9-11).
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times” (Micah 5:2).
