My daughter has hair that won't curl. When she puts her hair back in a ponytail it is the thickest ponytail you have ever seen. Her hair is thick. Her hair is heavy. Her hair is plentiful.
But she loves looking pretty, and she loves all the Jane Austen movies where all the women have beautiful curls. She wants beautiful curls, but her hair was not meant to curl. It was meant to be straight.
Last night my older daughter volunteered to put her hair in rags so she could be pretty for the piano festival today.
Here she is last night getting the rags in.
And here she is this morning after Becca took them out:
She's curly! She is so happy. She's really my girly-girl.
Rags are easy. You just wrap the hair in a strip of cloth and tie it, and leave it overnight. It works best if the hair is wet, but little girls love curls, and it makes them feel like Laura from Little House on the Prairie when you use this low-tech method. And it does last longer than curling irons!
By the way, she won with her duet last night! So that's a good start for the piano competition week.
