If you saw my post here, you know that I ordered knock off "curlformers" from China so when I had a fancy function to go to, I decided to try them out.
I started by wetting my hair with plain water and applying my Shea Butter mix to each section. I used small sections and set just the very top of my hair since it is tapered.
I went to bed and slept on my satin pillow case. The plan was to wake up in the morning, take down the rollers and spritz the sides and back of my hair to revitalize my curls.
Well, when I took off the rollers, the curls were shiny, defined and just gorgeous.
But, when I wet the sides, some of the moisture got on the curls and frizzed them up...sad face :(
Nevertheless, I decided to make the most of it. I separated the sections into smaller sections and fluffed. Since I was going to an all day event, I decided to hold the curls in place with hair spray (gasp...yeah I know but it worked). Everyone loved it and I got a lot of compliments with the frizz factor and all.
So, overall, it is a great styling tool that will get you stretched defined curls. If you have hair all over your head, then there will be no issue with moisture. The next time around, I will use a setting product with more hold and I will wait until after I shower to unravel them.
All in all, I love(d) it and I know that practice makes perfect so I'm sure my next set will be awesome!
