I've done it. I tried an at-home beauty tip with SUCCESS. This doesn't happen to me.
So all over pinterest and the blog-o-sphere are theses success (and failure) stories for no-heat hair curling. I tried the sock bun method to no avail. Not that my hair was flat and straight....it had some more bounce to it. But nothing that would qualify as 'curly.'
So then I tried the headband method.
Yes, based on the video I was SCARED to death. First of all, she and I have COMPLETELY different hair textures. Secondly, hers got a tad tangled and I have this fear of tangles. But really, I hate them.
Regardless I decided to give it a whirl.
ALL WRAPPED UP:
THE FINAL RESULTS:
ALL STYLED UP:

So a few things:
1. I did it about two hours after I had gotten out of the shower. So my hair was dry for the most part (I turbie-twisted it and let it air dry down for a while) but still had some dampness.
2. Next time I would want to use some mousse or curly hair product, just to help it set better. I didn't put any product in it before or after the headband and they still stayed curly all day. But I think product might make it more voluminous or more curl than twist perhaps? Who knows.
3. The back was only curly on the lower half- I still need to find a remedy for this. Though it is not visible if you pull your hair half up. Any other suggestions?
4. The curls were considerably tighter than I am used to on my hair. Even after combing through them and shaking them, they remained kinky. I might wrap larger sections of hair around the headband next time to eliminate this problem.
5. During lab, you must wear your hair up, so I threw it up into a ponytail- super cute! Like way cuter than your average pulled back hairstyle. Also, made a much better messy bun. And it was still curly after I took it out of each.
Overall, this was a SUCCESS! HOORAY! I will definitely be returning to this method in the future for curling my hair. It only took about ten minutes to wrap it before bed and about five to ten minutes to style it in the morning.
