Some Things Never Change...

I recently came across several childhood photos and the one above made me laugh so hard.  My mom used to put my wet hair up in rollers and I would sleep on them.  I still put my hair up in wetsets at least twice a week to curl my hair.  What you can't see from the photo above is that Rainbow Brite (my doll) also has curlers in her hair. hahahahaha.  I guess some things don't change!!

  2. So adorable! I had veritable ringlets as a child so there was no curling needed for me! And I'm still blessed with curly hair, but not quite to that extent (which might be a good thing). And hurrah for Rainbow Brite <3

  3. I loved rainbow brite. My Mum used to French plait my hair to make it wavy. I'm playing with curlers now and working out what works for my hair, it's a lot of fun!

  6. I love to look back at old pictures! It is amazing what it says about ourselves and how things don't change. I loved those pink curlers, you could sleep in them and the next morning the curls would outrageous. Thanks for sharing

  7. This is fantastic!
    My mom used to do the same for me, sometimes rag rolls too. If my hair wasn't in curlers/rags, it was always braided before bed.

    Guess this proves that mother is always right! Just can't refuse good hair.

  8. Ha! I used to sleep with tissue paper in my hair as rag rollers, including through high school when the poodle look was in. Still would love curly hair but have given up on it ever happening :(

  9. You're not nearly old enough to remember this, but those of us with curly locks in the 1960s used to roll our wet hair around juice cans -- the BIG kind, as for pineapple or grapefruit juice -- in an attempt to achieve the stick-straight locks that were in style then. Mixed results: usually straight in the middle, with curly at the bottom and also against your scalp. Really hard to sleep in those "rollers." Still, they did less damage to one's hair than did ironing it or applying straightening solution (these applications left you with hair that was straight on bottom, curly on top, with the bonus of a straw-like consistency of the entire head of hair). My dear mother made me do these things -- at age 10 I could scarcely have cared less about having straight hair -- because she wanted her girls to be "fashionable."
