i haven't done this but what could go wrong?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
oh, my gosh!
it is the permanent rod principle! What a neat idea! LOL
you remember the permanent rods? Before we got those "magnetic" rollers that were the size of soup cans ...
<looking around> oh! you mean I am now an OLD TIMER???? ROFLOL
i used to get my hair professionally straightened, so you're talking to the wrong gal. now i wear it short, so i let the curls take over.
What a great idea....thank you for sharing the site. I really like that idea....and so simple.
<sigh> I should be so lucky.
Although, my DD, youngest has hair down to her waist, a TON of it!
SHe was going to get it cut a couple of years ago, and I asked her, "Darling Daughter, youngest - - do you remember why you started growing your hair long, lo, those twenty years ago or more?"
Isn't it strange how an old woman can have a better memory than a relatively young one??? :wink:
anyway, sure enough, she had forgotten.
Truth be told, from her father's side of the family, she inherited naturally curly hair, and a TON of it ... and, were it not for her waist-long hair, it (her natural curls) would be flying all over the place in ringlets that would make Shirley Temple scream!
LOL ... when I reminded her, <g>, she immediately ceased and desisted from talking about cutting her hair ... young whipper snappers! sheesh! LOL
That's a great idea, I have been using the long twist ties from garbage bags.... (we are too lazy to go find them on trash day! We just hand tie the garbage bags so i have lots of twist ties!)
Or you can buy at dollar store...
this is a more "green" idea! :P
omak - exactly true! i had it done until it reached a certain length, and then the weight of it kept it down. i wore it waist-long until i was 50. after i washed it i braided it, and the braids took 2 days to dry. i thought i would mildew. when i unbraided it, it looked like it had been set into snake wiggles.
i'm hijacking my own thread. am i allowed to do that?
if 'green' appeals to you, you should get on their mailing list. they have loads of great ideas and info.Originally Posted by Aunt Doggie
I've used pipe cleaners in the past. Can get several bobbins on!
What an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing that.
