How To.. Heatless Curls with Savvy Curls

How to curl your hair easily without heat. These are all things I love to hear.

If you know me at all you know I am hair & makeup challenged. I have always been somewhat of a Tomboy growing up, having 3 older brothers right above me.  My mom was never into hair and makeup so my sister and I weren’t really taught much in that department.  When I use to curl my hair it would honestly take me hours and it still didn’t look good. I don’t know why it has always been so difficult for me. I’m thinking I must not be the only one though with so many curling hair tutorials and how to’s on youtube. (let’s hope I’m not the only one).

Since I am beauty challenged and a new mom the top knot has been my hairstyle for more than a year now.  I’ve been wanting to change this so I have attempted tying socks on my head (flashbacks to pink curlers at night), the sock bun, twisting my hair & braids.  Nothing was working and then I found Savvy Curls.

So what is Savvy Curls?

It’s a “heat insulating material & curl forming material” that uses the heat from our scalp to produce beautiful curls.

How to use Savvy Curls:

They have instructions inside the package but I am more of a visual person so I watched their tutorials on their website.

I washed my hair & let it air dry for a couple of hours, my hair is pretty thick. After it was dry I applied mouse all over my head.  I put the savvy curls on top of my hair.

I then wrapped my hair in about 1 inch sections around the Savvy Curl and pulled through.  Once pulled through I combined that piece with about an inch more of hair and continued to wrap about the Savvy Curl.

Once you get to the end you leave out the last piece after wrapped once.  You move onto the other side and repeat.  Once you reach the end of that side you will combined the two ends and wrap until all wrapped around the Savvy Curler. You will then  hold the ends with bobby pins.

After a few hours of wearing, sleeping, or a whole day of wearing for a night out you will untwist your curls.

This is what it looked like after several hours of wearing around and taking a nap in it. Hey a mamas got to rest when the baby does.

Easy curls without damaging my hair.  One bonus of never being able to do my hair growing up is my stylists always compliment me on my gorgeous healthy hair. Now I can style my hair and still keep the healthy locks.

I feel like the worst mom ever. I never attended mommy and me classes.  Olivia isn’t in gymnastics, swim, discovery classes, ect. According to standards now a days I have failed as a mother.  That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to meet up with some mamas at a new adorable play cafe. If you guys aren’t following Sandy @sandyalamode Blakely @eloiseandme or Makelle @makelleahlin on instagram you need to. They have beautiful pictures & are beautiful themselves inside & out.

Storybrook cafe has so much character and charm the moment you walk in.  They have an adorable set up with playhouses, puppet show, ball pit, the cutest little car for kids to ride, and that’s just the first level.  You walk upstairs and there is a cafe set up there.  I was able to check a few emails while Olivia was occupied by her lemon poppyseed muffin.

While upstairs we wanted a little bit more privacy so we escaped into a room with plenty more toys to play with and a comfy couch to lounge on. Olivia was very sick the week before and lets just say she was a little too attached to mommy so we had to have some alone time to warm up to the place.  It didn’t take long though with all the fun stuff to keep her occupied.  We ended up staying way longer than I thought we would. After grabbing some food we headed back downstairs & Olivia explored while I browsed through their little shop/boutique. They have the cutest baby clothes & accessories from small shops. I love supporting small handmade businesses & love places that support them as well.  While hanging out we met one of the owners. She told us her story of being a stay at home mom and wanting to work at a place where she could bring her child with her.  She and her business partner decided to open up this cute cafe for parents to be able to escape to and let their kids explore at the same time.  I love how places are being more kid friendly now.  With both parents working or bringing in an income we need places like this that we are able to catch up on a few emails while letting our children play.

Before packing up we headed outside to get some fresh air on the patio. I can’t wait for summertime but how nice will it be to sit back with a snack & drink, catch up on some work while Olivia gets to play.  I can honestly say that I will be returning back to Storybrook Cafe. Not only on a regular day but they have lots of fun activities on their schedule as well.  Reptile day, princess day, brunch with the Easter Bunny, and lots more.  Go check out their website and see what fun things they have planned for the future and if you’ve been thinking about visiting this place, stop hesitating because you wont regret it.
