freebie for Friday – ebook about rag curls, fun!

With 5 daughters, all with long hair, I have plenty of experience making little girls look great. There is nothing that says “special occasion” better than a great style created with rag curls. Young girls love to dress up and be pretty but it isn’t necessary to indulge in the styles of today, the old fashioned look is even more fun and maintains the wholesome look girls often lack today. With rag curls you can get the Shirley Temple ringlets or soft waves or anything in between!

This is a styling method that is not damaging to the hair and can be used often. Any type of heating appliances are really hard on the hair of young girls not to mention dangerous to use with each other.  My daughters have grown up doing each other’s hair. Not only is the result beautiful but even watching the process is a blessing.

a very detailed How To ebook with step by step instructions and lots of pictures

This book will be available Friday August 28 all WEEKEND! as a free download in my bookstore with Homeschool Freebie of the Day


  1. That’s adorable! My girl is 19 and 1800 miles away now. She had Shirley Temple Ringlets when she was little but now she can’t get her hair to curl.

  2. How well I remember “rag curls” My mom used to do my hair in rags at night…for school, when I was little. You brought back a pleasant memory. Thanks : )

  3. I can’t wait to try this on my daughter!

  4. Waaaay cute. I did three of my little girls hair up in rag curls for our 100th year homecoming at church this summer. I did mine a little differently. I twisted the hair around the rag and then the remainder of the rag up the hair and tied it off. It made very very tight ringlets.

  5. How adorable! My niece has such fine hair and my sister can’t do much with it. Perhaps this will help!

  8. bummer, i missed the freebie…i just found out about it today (monday) through Minute with Molly’s newsletter.
    I have 3 girls and when they saw the pics of the curls, they squealed with delight.

  9. you can still get it, go to my bookstore and look for the homeschool freebie tab at the top

  10. Thank you for leaving this freebie up. I was looking forward to it, and my computer crashed on Friday when I tried to download it. May you be blessed by the Lord for blessing others freely!

  11. Thank you a bunch for offering this as a freebie! It’s something that I had recently asked DH about how it was done….of course neither of us knew. I will be trying this soon. hubby thinks it will look cute. 😛

  12. I downloaded this book when you had the freebie weekend and read it but never got around to getting my “rags” (& energy) together at the same time! lol Until this weekend!!! I was so impressed w/ the results, as was my daughter! I enjoyed spending the time with her and watching her confidence blossom in the mirror Sunday morning. It was so rewarding to be able to give her something that was so special & yet was practically free. She keeps asking now when we can do that again! Thank you for your excellent ideas & willingness to share them!
