NYE: Curlformers + Solo Parents

Happy New Year again!! My Mom arrived 2 days ago, sporting freshly dyed, auburn red cropped hair. I’ll be interviewing her on my blog and also helping her create a new regimen as well as determining her porosity. Stay tuned!

So with grandma in town, my husband and I decided to keep a long standing tradition. Every year we eat at this amazing Japanese restaurant, nestled in the Alps. This year we invited friends (mostly parents) and said it would be a kids-free night. It was my first time being away from the peanut for so long. I called a couple of times to check in. Overall I had such a good time!!! It felt good to just chat amongst friends, uninterrupted.

For NYE, I wanted a special look so I tried Curlformers!! Let me say, I think this will be my to-go to winter style!! It leaves my hair stretched and moisturized! I’m not sure how many days the curls last, but I plan on putting it in a protective style in a couple of days anyway.

I forgot to take the customary Curlformer picture, but I did take an after pic. It took me 2.5 hrs to install them, but I found my rhythm at the end and think it’ll be faster the next time. I used all 40 long and wide Curlformers, 24 in the front and 16 in the back. Before styling I had washed my hair with diluted shampoo and then reverse-oil rinsed. I’m really happy with the results.

How do you preserve your Curlformer style? What did you do for NYE?

  1. Love your hair! That’s great that you and your husband had a date night. I have 2 boys under 3 years old. My husband and I are like little teenagers when we get away! Lol Happy New Year!!

  2. My hair has been breaking and shedding(health problems *sad face*), am 3 years natural and teep-toe-ing around shoulder length, hopefully this year I get healthier and retain length..How do you deal with hair setbacks bc its really getting to me

    And btw, You look so gorgeous! I love the skirt and you are a beautiful mom and congrats on your new born son-may he grow up to be a blessing to the world, happy new year to your family!

    • Thank you so much, you’re so sweet. Happy New Year and lots of peace, health and happiness to you and your family as well!!
      It’s a wool skirt, so when paired with tights it keeps you warm on cold winter days!

      Regarding hair, hang in there. Shoulder length is great and with some patience and a proactive healthy changes, it’ll all come together.

      In terms of setbacks, I just take it easy and try to enjoy my hair at every stage. If I’m having a bad hair day, there’s nothing a cute beanie and maybe a playful outfit can’t solve. I’m sure your hair is lovely, stay positive and the most important thing to take of is your health.
