I suppose the two biggest draws and/or benefits of a product like this are:
A. Escape from the dreaded heat damage that all curlies fear and
B. Smoothing of frizz and definition of curl.
I've watched quite a few YouTube video tutorials and have read many hair blog articles on this product. I have seen reviews of Curlformers used on a variety of different types of hair, and my thoughts on this product are still undecided. Many have had problems from hair not drying all the way (even after many hours) unless they going under a dryer (heat) and sets not lasting for more than a day after all that effort.
look like this (points upward) what if I want to comb them out so I don't look like an 8 year old at her first dance recital? Will I be left with a big ole' frizzy, non-defined mess if I comb the set through? Help me out here.
Comes in several lengths and diameters:
For short hair - up to 8 inches (20cm) long: Short
For medium-length hair - up to 14 inches (35cm) Long
For long hair - up to 22 inches (55cm) Extra Long
Extra Long Hair - up to 39 inches (75cm) long: Super Long
To the right are some examples of the results you should expect according to the website.
Looks pretty good, right?
But I guess anytime you have someone doing your hair that can see your head from all angles, you already have an advantage.
Here's a video on how to sleep in them. Apparently this young lady sleeps on her back all night. LOL! If I were to attempt sleeping in these, there would be Curlformers EVERYWHERE (under the bed, by the tv, in the bathroom) when I work up. If I was lucky there might be one or two still left in my head. :-) I'm still on the fence. So please share your experiences, pro/cons tips, etc. and let me know if you have tried Curlformers.
UPDATE: I went ahead and purchased two 40 each packs from Amazon. Total cost with shipping was $37.85.
These are replicas, but have been reported to work the same as the pricey version.
It was suggested that that the styling hook from Curlformers be used, as it is sturdier and better to work with.
It was $3.49 with free shipping, so I order one.
|My first Curlformer set!! Took me a while, but it seems I have them it correct. Will remove before I go to bed. :-)|
