So I’ve had these e-bay curlformers for about a year.
I swore off curlformers because while I found them easy and even cute they NEVER lasted more than a day. I moved away from my curlfomers in favor of traditional rollersets, however I wondered back to my curlfromers recently because the stretch they provide is ideal for a blowdry free flat iron.
I have the extra wide curlformers I purchased from an eBay seller RelaxSacks. I went to Sally’s and bought the genuine curlformers hook for about 5 bucks because the one that came the package was crap.
I sat under the dryer with a head full of curlfromers for 45 mins and then slept.
Sleeping was easy, Removal was easy. Styling was easy.
This is my hair after removing the curlformers
My hair was soft and well defined. Most importantly my roots were smooth. You can even see my scalp! Prior to instilling I did a hot oil treatment with Dabur’s Vikita oil. I credit this for the smoothness of my roots.
I then separated the curls somewhat and styled:
I wore my hair in this style all day. Because I swore I was going to flat iron, I used no holding product. However after flat ironing half of one section and promptly gave up.
At the end of the day here is what became of the curls
They started to frizz, but I knew they wouldn’t last. Instead I decided to throw in a quick set of flat twist, so I could wear my hair down the next day.
Here are the flat twist I wore to bed and the resulting style
I had a nice curly bob look going with this twist and curl. I will likely bun for the rest of the week, but I am happy with my curlformer experience.
I will continue to keep them in the rotation as I look to spend less time under the dryer in the heat of the summer.
