Are you talking about a wrap? Well when I used to straighten, I'd sometimes wrap my hair as you described before I go to bed at night. I know some do it with wet hair, But I never did because my hair has always been to thick and long to do it wet. (even if I sit under a hair dryer, it still wouldn't dry.) anyway I always loved the results. I haven't tried it since wearing my hair curly. I doubt it would work now.

As far as a wet bun being good for the hair... I don't know. I do it a lot but that's because I don't have time to dry it before hand. I do know that if you choose to do that, don't pull too tight on your wet hair because that could cause breakage. And if you secure it with a ponytail holder, use one that doesn't have the metal clasp- Goody makes nice ones.

Are you talking about the common turban style? I'm having issues with mine right now. I'm not sure it it's the cut (I"m in need of a trim or something) or the towel and placement of it. Right now I"m doing the plopping. But my crown has no curl now. When I did the terry towel turban, I always got curl on top. So, I don't know. But I just bought a big micro towel and I sure hate to waste it -- it wasn't cheap!
I'm one of those who get bad results sleeping on a satin pillowcase. My hair gets much frizzier. Seems like my hair likes the opposite of most other's.

It's called a wrap :D !

Yep, it's calling "wrapping" your hair. I believe back in the day it was called the "dooby"? That's what the female adults in my life called it when I was a kid and started getting my hair wash and set at a Dominican salon.

ETA: I never answered your question! I used to do it when I would get my hair wash and set, like I said above. I never tried it on wet, curly hair though. I used to unsuccessfully do it at home when I would wash, set in curlers and sit under my old hood dryer. Never did work without the blow out the ladies at the salon would do after I sat under the dryer...

yeh thanks, i think its called a wrap
but i seriously dont see how it is suppose to make hair softer
one of my curly haired friends used to do it, and she said her hair was so soft n silky
ill try it and see if i like it

SuZen 12-04-2006 06:07 AM

I used to do that way back when I had waist-length hair. It really made my hair straight. Actually too straight, so I used to put it in a bun for an hour afterwards, to make the ends bend. I used to sit under a big dryer for an hour...Not the kind of thing you want to do every day!

banjocurl 12-04-2006 03:15 PM

yup--wrapping it's called. lots of effort for straight hair that will just go SPROING the minute there is a drop of humidity in the air. easy to split the ends with the bobby pins too. that's another thing i will never do again
(like clothes ironing my hair, sleeping w big rollers, bleaching it blonde--all that crap!!) FREEDOM is so sweet..:)

SuZen 12-05-2006 05:42 AM

Banjocurl, do you remember pink hairsetting tape? That's what I used instead of bobby pins. I don't think they make it any more.

HalfWavyHalfCurly 12-06-2006 04:21 AM

Oh my Lord, pink setting tape! Well, I think I saw some at Walgreen's but can't remember if it was in recent times...:lol:

kurlz:

Your head acts as a giant roller and the pins keep the hair stretched out in place until it dries so the result is straight or nearly straight hair.

curlyinohio 12-06-2006 08:49 AM

Yeah, I remember! In high school, I'd wash my hair at night, blow dry it into the feathered style that was popular then, then almost COVER the sides of my head wth that stuff before going to bed! It worked! Boy, what I used to go through for straight hair! :wink:

Suzen:

Earlier I did a search for metal hair clips (to show another curly) and what do you think came up in one page I opened? Pink tape! :lol: So it looks it's still alive and well!

SuZen 12-07-2006 05:59 AM

No kidding!!!


Well, I don't need it any more since the days when I used it are long behind me, but it's cool that it still exists.

Useful product, by the way, for someone who wants to finger-wave, or to hold down a wayward curl while it's drying. Doesn't make ridges like clips or bobby pins.

Hey, there's a thought!
