Saving this for later, because I've always wanted to try this! My hair is naturally wavy and about 3 inches longer than the woman in the video so it wouldn't look the same, but similar:

That is lovely! I hope you get satisfactory results.

Had a bit of a chuckle watching her roll her hair. I used to roll mine as a teenager because I wasn't allowed to use a curling iron.

Truthfully, it seemed (to me) that my grandmother had difficulty accepting that I was growing up. I wasn't allowed to do many things that most teenagers were allowed to do, and yet, I was often accused of doing things I wasn't, like having sex. My grandmother accused me daily of having sex, but I knew, even as a teen, that I did not want to have children, and I knew if I got pregnant, I would not be allowed to terminate the pregnancy. So my legs stayed closed until I was living by myself.

Oddly enough, I was allowed to apply my own relaxer (a chemical mixture that straightens the curl pattern of African-American hair). I remember I gave a small portion of my forehead a chemical burn--it was slightly jarring to wipe off the top layer of skin. I was more careful with future applications. I do not miss relaxers--they smelled so bad.

If you get good results from your attempt, will you share them with us?

It looks beautiful! But that is way more work and time than I would ever devote to my hair. Hell, most of the time I don't even blow dry. I'm usually running out the door to work with wet hair and air drying it with my windows down on my drive to work, hahaha.

You should post pictures if you do this! It is very pretty and glam.
