Once the summer is on it’s way, I like to keep my hair curly.
It’s a chore for me to set my hair in rollers every week and then sit under a dryer. Ever since Cristi taught me how to use a diffuser two years ago, it has been even easier to maintain curly. The only problem I had was for sleeping. I didn’t like that my curly hair would sometimes get all knotted up at night. I toss and turn a lot. I have several tight handmade crochet hair nets to sleep with when I wrap my hair when it’s straight. I bought a loose one at the beauty supply to try on my curly hair and it started unraveling after just a few uses.
So, in comes A Little Nightcap.
Perfect for keeping my hair in curls at night with no knots in the morning.
I am a happy camper! You can make it small enough for a bun net, too.
The nets stay in place because you hem in either a snagless (no metal) headband for the slumber cap or a ponytail elastic for the bun net. It can also double as a quick cute cap to run to the store with if your hair is not done on any given day. :o)
