I am am so happy to tell everyone that it works and it works well! Great curls without heating products. It takes 2 minutes to wrap your hair and can be worn overnight for easy curls the next day. This is definitely a product that I can stand behind.
Keep reading for my tutorial, photos, and results.
And since I probably didn't explain the technique perfectly, here are some tutorial videos to help you visualize how easy it is to wrap: here and here
A. Overnight with dry hair:
The first time I tried the savvy curls band I slept in it. I applied mousse to dry hair and left it in for around 11 hours. I LOVED the results. Just make sure to really brush your hair after applying the mousse so it is smooth. Tangly hair won't curl as nicely. This was my favorite method.
B. 4 hours with dry hair:
Next I wrapped it in the morning with dry hair and some mousse. I left it in for 4 hours during the day. The curls were stil great but fell out before the end of the day unlike the overnight curls.
C. 4 hours with damp hair:
This was the method I tried for this photoshoot and post. I still like version A. best, but this worked well.
Here are my results. Now ideally I would have taken them right after removing the curler and in the same place as before, but let's me honest- toddlers don't care about our plans! These were taken 3 hours after removing and playing outside in the humidity so at least it gives you an idea of how they hold up.
