The perfect CURL - Easy no heat curls + a giveaway!

YOU GUYS!  I am over the moon excited for this review today + giveaway!
I have mentioned this before on my blog but I am a HUGE supporter on not damaging your hair by using the least amount of heat possible when it comes to styling your hair.

Being a mommy to an active toddler I don't always have the time to curl my hair nor do I have much desire to spend the time curling it :)

What if I told you there was a way to have beautiful perfect curls by using NO SINGLE AMOUNT OF HEAT!? Not to mention it's as simple as pie!?
I'm here to tell you -- it's real guys!

It's called Savvy Curls.

What are Savvy Curls??
"Savvy Curls are curling headbands that are made of thermal insulating & curl forming materials that work with your body heat to produce stunning lucious curls."

I received an email not too long ago from a consultant at Savvy Curls who explained how this no heat modern day genius way of curling your hair worked. I was a little hesitant at first, wondering how in the world some head band could curl my thick crazy hair with no heat involved! After watching a couple videos on "how to" use this headband on their website and seeing various testimonials I was hooked and I had to try it!

There are 2 different types of Savvy Curl headbands ( Not to mention TONS of cute patterns to choose from for both types! )
Depending on the thickness of your hair and how you want the tightness of your curl there are SINGLE Savvy Curl Headbands, and DOUBLE Savvy Curl headbands.
I was sent in the mail a "Double curl headband" because of my crazy thick hair.
However, the wonderful thing about the double headband is that the "double band" detaches to make a regular single curl headband. For even looser, bouncier, bigger curls, I detach the double band and just use the single band. Works wonderfully!

How it works: 

BEFORE hair ^^
I simply showered and round brush blow-dryed it like I always do. ( no straightener )
My hair is naturally wavy ( not curly just awkward wavy ) and gets a little frizzy with humidity so I use my favorite Aveda products I talked about HERE. ( Not sponsored to say that, I just love my hair products! )

It was slightly damp in a few places and that's just how you want it!

 For this particular time I was using the double band headband so I pulled the top half of my hair up in a bun until I was ready to wrap that top half.

I simply took each piece of hair and wrapped it around the band in a circular motion.

Once the bottom half was done it looked like this ^^
If you are using the double band, pop that top headband to the front of your bun and start to wrap the top half of your hair around that band.

( If I was using my single band, I would have ALL of my hair around this one band! ( SO. MUCH. HAIR. ) When I detach the double band this single band is full of a lot more hair but works just as well to give a looser curl :)

I took out my top bun and continued twisting and wrapping around the top band in a circular motion.
( just like I did on the lower half of my hair )

This particular time I left it in for about 2 and a half hours while I was doing laundry and cleaning the house. ( for a tighter curl - leave in for longer - I was going for the loose bouncy curls )

This is how it looks pulling it out of the band.

I fluffed it up a little and bam I was ready to leave the house.

Trust me when I say that You can hardly feel that you have a headband on!
It is the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my head ( in all sincerity )
I have slept in it at night and woke up to beautiful bouncy curls!
Sometimes I will put it in during Ryan's nap time and take a nap with it, wake up and WaaaLaaH! - Date night ready.

I may never use a curling iron again.

I am beyond thrilled to give one of you girls the chance to WIN a Single band headband ( $23.99 retail value ) !!
