Yet another bandwagon- Curlformers w/ results...

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.

I plan to get some tomorrow. It seem that most people put 30 to 40 is that accurate? and how many come in the kit? My hair is may close to 5 inch stretched. Which would you recommend?

Ok I bought these things after seeing the rave reviews on here and I can't seem to get them to hold the ends of my hair. Granted this is my first time using them but has anyone else had this problem? I really want to use them but I may just have to return them to sally's or swap them if my hair is "too long" for them. My hair isn't that long imo b/c it shrinks so much but when stretched the bottom is about bra strap length. According to the product website people with really long hair can use two curlformers on one piece of hair but I really don't want to go through that. I guess I'll have to try the flexirods if I don't like the results
I want them too!!! Payday is friday... gonna try Rose water as well, from my new Indian friend who sold me henna! [laughs]

(1) celeste821 did you ever get the curlformers? my hair is about 5 inches as well, if so what size did you get.
(2) since your hair gets soo straight, has anyone just brushed the curls down (like from a rollerset) and then just worn their hair straight? Based on people's results, it seems to only last about 3-4 days and as a student I need 5-7 day hair. So if I can wear the spirals for a few days, then comb it down and have a straight-ish look that'd b great!
I've been using curlformers faithfully for the past year. I use the long and thin ones, those work better for my hair I think last longer. When I first started I used the wide and long. My style usually lasts for a week I just sleep in a satin bonnet and moisturize my ends and hair every night. By the end of the week I usually pull it back but still looks cute. I hope this helps!

Perfect! thats the info I was looking for. I am going to head to sallys to get some!
How long is your hair, if you don't mind me asking?
No prob! The pics in my fotki are old. When I first started using the formers my hair was shoulder length. Now I would say my hair is in between bsl and apl. I think the curlformers and less heat helped my hair to grow. My hair has gotten so long that it sticks out of the bottom of the curlformer. I don't how much longer I can use them. But if it gets me the long length that I want, I don't mind

Any cottony, coily types use these expensive doo-hickeys?

I need a new look for my 5" of hair.

(I assume I would need the shortest ones?)
Hi!

I'd like to get suggestions of lotions or butters to use with culformers. My hair is a mixture of 3c/4a. I've tried Keracare setting lotion (bad results), keracare mouse (more or less), Deva set it free + Keracare setting lotion (not good)... I like the curls I get from curlformes, but no product so far has allowed me to separate the curls and give them a great shape . What do you suggest me? Thanx!
I've been wanting to try these cause these seem easier than using magnetic rollers. I tried using magnetic rollers and my hair didn't turn out great.

Last Chemical Straightener - April 2007
100% Natural as of - Feb 2008
I tried it last night and returned it today. I bought 3 packs for $40. I couldn't really use large sections of hair because it wouldn't pull through the Curlformer. Smaller pieces of hair worked marginally better (still tangly and some ripped hair from the hook) but I only had half of my hair done at that point.

I figured it would take another $40 to complete it so I returned it to Sally's. Talking with the woman who processed my return she said my problem was the most common complaint and even for her (a wavy that straightens) she had trouble. Her hair had to be completely straight to do it right.

Hey ladies,

Those of you that posted pics look great! I used the extra wide & long (orange & pink) curlformers.

I'm not too sure if I like them. My hair is super easy to manage (i.e. detangle) but it's extremely thick! I don't think curlformers are the greatest for ladies like me that have super thick hair.

My sister (who has relaxed hair) also tried them and had the same issue- they didn't work that great w/ her thick, relaxed hair.

I'll probably try them one more time, but I'll most likely return them to Sally's b/c in Toronto these babies cost $82.00 for the kit, and I paid $105 to get 5 packs of Extra Wide & Long since the long & narrow ones that come in the kit can't hold enough of my hair.

So if you have really thick hair, curlformers may not work that great for you. But u can try!

I just convinced my mom to buy some curlformers today for her hair. She orginally purchased flexi rods but I told her that the curlformers might be a lil easier to use.

Her hair is natural, very soft and not super thick so i'm hoping they turn out cute on her. I'll update with pics as soon as we figure out how to use them!

For the thick hair comments, that may be true for you, but my hair is extremely thick, waist length (I'm a 2 something) and they worked great on my hair, and my daughters hair is also extremely thick, she is also waist length (4a) but she's 4 years old, and they work well on her hair. So I'm not too sure about that comment.

They are tricky when you use them the first time though. I didn't like them when I first tried them, now I love them. They definitely take getting used to, but that's just like other curlers we have tried.

This was the first time I tried them on her hair, also the second time on her box braids:

Another try, different Curlformers:

And on my hair:

With my daughters hair, I cannot use them on completely wet hair. Slighty damp and dry works best. I let her hair air dry, so when I tried them on completely wet hair the results were not good. Oh and a setting lotion works wonders.

Oh, how could I forget her pretty princess updo with Curlformers?

I have been using these over all other Curlers. I still love flexi-rods though.

Curlformers are the best $60.00 I have ever spent! My hair is a cross between a wave and a curl. I can never do it curl with volume on top, or do it wavy without it looking like a triangle. I got the curlformer salon kit and I can either have formal curls, or when I take the curlformers out I rake mousse through the curls and have a nice loose curl. I usually take a shower, wrap my hair in a towel to dry a bit then put in the curlformers. I do the things I need to around the house and after about an hour put the hair dryer on it for about 5 minutes and they are ready to be removed!
I love them!
