Default Any 2's tried Curlformers?

if so, what were/are your results? I wonder if they would be good to tame heat and humidity induced frizz in the summer?

I haven't used them on my hair (I need longer ones) but I've used them on my daughter 3x. While her hair is straight it's very thick and fine and NEVER holds a curl. With Curlformers it's a different story. We can get 3 days out of curlformers curls if she wears a satin bonnet to bed. I imagine they'd work much the same on me as you do it on wet hair and my wet hair is pretty straight. I don't think it would necessarily cut down on frizz but it would give you consistent curls. Let me see if I can link to a few pics.

1st time using them



3rd time unfluffed



3rd time fluffed



Sorry they're blurry...cell phone pics...but you can see what great curls they make. I can't wait to get the longer ones for my hair.

Wow, what great hair with those curlformers!

I tried them and was disappointed. I put them in damp hair right before bed and when I woke up my hair was still....damp. I guess I could use the dryer instead, but I'm lazy, what can I say. So I returned them.

I was looking for something I could just sleep in and just take out in the morning. But there have been a few threads on here of people who love them!! I say, if there's a Sally's near you, try them and just save your receipt.

I don't use them on wet hair though.

NikG I hadn't seen your review on your hair. Very pretty!!!

OP long and extra wide would be a good size. If you have a bonnet dryer I'd suggest using it to help dry. 1st time on DD we did air only hence the looser curls. Using the bonnet the next few times (low setting, med heat) for about 20 min really helped set the curl. I set her up with some toys and a coloring book and she was good to go.

Jess your daughter is a total cutie and I love her hair! Beautiful! make me want them!

I've been trying to hold off buying these. I wanted to get some for one of my friends too. She has stick straight hair that never holds curls and I thought these may work for her too. Trying to keep my pj in check.

Jess, thanks for this. I like that the two drying options can give looser or tighter results. Do you think they can be slept on?
