Yet another bandwagon- Curlformers w/ results...

it looks just like a rodset... no differnece to me.

just buy the bigger rods. I usually stay with the extra lagre, large, and medium. I mix it thoughout my head for a natural look.

I can't believe your hair looks like you sat under the dryer. I just bought a professional grade hair dryer from Sally and now I'm tempted to try curlformers. Nikki your hair looks like you stepped out of a salon!

I haven't been on here in a while but here I go again. I was just telling my husband last night that I wanted to do something different with my hair but I really didn't want to flat iron it. Flat ironed hair just bores me in comparison to my curls plus my hubby prefers my hair curly. I think this might be the solution for me. I'm going to pick some up tomorrow.

Curlnikki, as usual your hair looks amazing. You are my hair idol. I really appreciate you spending so much time experimenting and finding new hair ideas. I never have the time too so I just pop in every once in a while to see what you ladies are up to and jump on the bandwagon too. My hair is doing better than ever because of it.
Thanks Ladies!!

I've been faithfully setting my hair on the curlformers every weekend. It's really helping me keep my hands out of my hair and I think my ends are getting a rest from curling up on themselves. It also makes it easier for me to apply my latest bandwagon product- Boundless Tresses

DosRitaRocks, my inability to cure my PJism is a gift...and a curse My fiance has just accepted it as a part of our lives now Whenever I find something that works for me, I can't help but share it with my nc.com ladies!!! Thanks again

i use flexirods in medium and large sizes. for me, it looks like i am naturally a 3b (with NO FRIZZ!) I regularly have people telling me i hava such pretty curly hair. I do it for work cuz if they saw my natural wild self, it wouldn't be good. I am a host at a top nyc restaurant.
you look so cute-your making me want to go out n buy them...not sure where id get them from-ill find them some how
OK OK Already!! I am sold.. My question is where can I buy them? I know Sally's Beauty Suppy has them but they are soo expensive there. Is there a place where I can buy them for less?

I suggest you call up some of your local beauty supply stores to see if they carry the curlformers. If not....Sally's will definitely have them.

I'm sitting with a head full of curlformers right now. I can't wait to see how they turn out this time around...

Not a good look. I can use the smaller rods with no problem, but getting bigger curls causes style issues.

These curl-formers look like they'll solve that problem. I might even be able to let them airdry and use a light hold product for softer curls...

Whenever I purchase enough to do my whole head (I'm currently purchasing one pack at a time) I'll be sure to post pics


ETA: gia - I'd never thought of varying the rod sizes to get the roller culrs looking more natural - That's a good idea.
mostly coarse texture, normal porosity... I think?

FYI ladies...someone is selling curlformers on the swap board.

Curlynikki...hey chica! I will post pics later of my results. it came out much better this time. i used 40 which is the perfect number. but i slept on my hair the wrong way last night and now the curls look a hot mess. lol. and i'm still getting very frizzy ends when I set my hair. maybe i need to put a gel on the ends before i put the curlformer on the super curly sections?

Hey Curlynikki- How are ya?

I'm thinking of trying the curlformers, but I have a question: I am very active - I am either running, working out, hula hooping, something - everyday. How well do the spirals hold up? As I recall, you're pretty active too - did you get multiple days out of your spiral sets when doing athletic stuff? TIA

SPIRAL!!! How r ya?!

I'm going to have to say no...I think it'd be better as a winter hairstyle, or for someone that is less active. It's like a roller set...with no heat...so the set isn't incredibly firm. If I were you, I'd wait and maybe just continue doing twist-outs (don't you do these) for the summer.

ttyl and hope all is well

Thanks Nikki. I'm fine - enjoying L.A. About the curlers - Oh well . I was hoping for a little variety, but I guess I'll stick with wash n gos and twist outs like you said.

Spiral, while I have you here...what is your current routine?? How many times a week do you wash and do you wear protective styles??

I haven't done proper twists or twistouts in a while.

After moving to SoCal, my hair freaked out. It was really frizzy and dry. I thought it was because I haven't hennaed in a while, but now I'm pretty sure it's because the environment is so much drier than where I used to live. The Northeast was a rainforest compared to here. And the sun here - it's like being under a magnifying glass LOL.

Anyway, I just switched to a gel without glycerin (I suspected glycerin was pulling the moisture out of my hair due to the dry air) and, lo and behold, my hair is back to looking and feeling normal!

I plan to start hennaing regularly again real soon. I've grown out about two inches of hair, and I can see the difference in color between my hairline and the length. I prefer the color of my hennaed hair.

Your hair is looking fab, as always, and getting even longer!

Curlinikki I didn't think your hair could get any better looking. I was wrong! It looks absolutely amazing. I want to try it. I am super duper challenged and have a short attention span. Do you think I could do it? If you do it again would you post progressive photos of the process?


OMG!!!! Your hair looks amazing!!!! Now I want them too!

Speaking of bandwagons... I just received my sulfur in the mail. I was like what the hell? LOL Its yellow and smells and the bottle says not to inhale, something about poison, bla bla bla Good Lord! I'm going to put it on my hair anyway LOL
