So I was talking to my sister-in-law, Lizzy to see how she scrunches her hair and so I decided to try it for my self, so if you’re going to try it here’s what you’ll need: styling mousse, clips, wet/damp hair and time.

First your hair needs to be wet enough, but not too wet otherwise your hair won’t “set” right. And then you’re going to work the mousse through your hair, all the way through. Next you’re going to take a section of your hair (I did my hair in sections because my hair is so thin it will dry faster and also it’s easier for me), let the ends sit in your palm and and bring your hand up to your scalp, as you’re bringing it up keep your hair contained in the center of your palm. Kind of making a messy looking nest. Then once you bring is mess up to your scalp, clip it there with a clippie.

You do this to your whole head and walk around looking kind of goofy for a few hours… Like me:

And as you can see: I used Herbal Essences mousse. Overall the effect on my hair was thus:

We were having some meetings so I wanted to do this with my hair for that night…. if you wanted it for in the morning I believe if you bobby pinned the sections (so the bobby pins were flat against your head so as not to stab thyself) and then wrapped your head in a bandana to keep your hair contained, I think it could work. If you try it that way let me know how it turns out!

The Chronicles of Narnia

If you haven’t read the books in this series, I strongly advise you to do so. Adventures, battles, a Great Lion named Aslan, who is involved throughout the whole story even though the reader might not be able to see it.

I don’t want to give everything away, but I must say this: The last book of the “chronicles” may seem like all hope is lost, but at the very end: it makes you so happy that you want to cry!

C.S. Lewis is a genius! Everything in the books seems to have a parallel with the Bible somehow, and I really feel like if I say anything more I’ll end up giving something away… So do me a favor: read them!
