i took my busted roller set from last week and transformed it into something halfway decent (praise Him)!
since my hair and scalp were still thoroughly clean from the clay detox, i didn't rewash.
i rolled my dry hair on orange perm rods using jane carter wrap & roll foam.
airdried for three hours and unrolled to reveal shirley temple-esque curls.
sidebar: did anyone else go to the salon to have these things burned into your hair with a pressing comb and then a curling iron as a kid? i feel like i've been bamboozled... this was so much easier and heat-free!
i shouldn't have but i separated the curls some to loosen them up a bit since nobody was paying shirley temple to sport these things at age 26. for good reason.
i actually liked the separated curls a lot more but still wanted a more natural-looking curl, so i pincurled in large sections (8-10, i believe) overnight.
pincurling will definitely be my method of choice for set preservation at this point (thanks for the tips, Divachyk and Ebony!), so I am going to try out lots of different pincurl sizes in the near future.

treating my hair as my crown and glory
