My curlformers debut

I tried culformers for the first time about a week ago and I must say I was impressed!  The curls came out looking really good – they actually looked like they had been achieved using heat.  It took me 45 minutes (I timed myself) to put the curlformers on my hair.  I washed and deep conditioned as usual and then applied Organic Root Stimulator Moisturising Hair Lotion and a bit of coconut oil.  I then put the hair in curlformers.

The curlformers are actually very easy to use. In my opinion they are easier than traditional rollers which require that the hair be straight and taut on the rollers.  With curlformers you just pull the hair through with the hook and that’s it.  I’m sure with practice I will soon have it down to 30 minutes.  I also had a spray bottle with water at hand to make sure the hair was damp when I put it in the curlformers.

I put the curlformers on my hair in the evening and slept with them overnight, removing them the next morning.  They were not too difficult to sleep in.  I just tied them up using 3 scrunchies, then tied a scarf over them to make it easier to lay my head down.  I saw this tip on a youtube video.  Once removed, I separated the curls and applied a bit of coconut oil.

I really love the curls and this is a style I will do often.  I used a combination of ‘long and wide’ and ‘extra long and wide’.  If I get an opportunity I will buy some ‘extra wide’ ones just for even bigger curls.

    Your curls look gorgeous, Tendayi! I wonder what it would look like on my hair now that it’s super short, or even with a sew-in weave. This is encouraging! I want the generic ones from Verimark.

      They are really great Kavuli. I think they would look great on your hair, especially with your new length. You could get the smaller ones for tighter curls.
