A few months ago I “splurged” on a natural hair product for the 1 year anniversary of my big chop (anything over $20 for hair products is considered a splurge in my opinion…call me cheap if you want but I prefer frugal lol). I purchased the curlformers kit after reading several product reviews and watching tutorials. I absolutely LOVE my curlformers. They have become apart of my weekly routine and come in very handy for special occasions or whenever I just want a different look. Here’s a quick review of curlformers…from my opinion of course:
*Perfect spirals…being that I am a bit “challenged” when it comes to styling my own hair, the fact that I can do a almost perfect rod set myself is a big plus!
*Great for stretching…As you guys know I experience ALOT of shrinkage so I prefer to style on stretch hair. With curlformers I get a really good stretch without having to use any heat which is awesome.
* Ease of Use…curlformers are really easy to use in my opinion. You may have to refer to the directions for the first few but after you get the hang of it the rest is a breeze
*Easy to Sleep On…this is very important to me. One of the things that I love most about curlformers is that on those nights when I’m not sleeping so pretty, I never wake up to see one on the pillowcase, on the floor or in the sheets. These things stay put even when i’m fighting my husband tossing and turning during my sleep.
*Cost…I purchased the curlformers salon kit from Sally’s which costs about $70. The set included 40 Long Wide curlformers, 6 Short & Wide and a Curlformer Hook. You can purchase individual packs of curlformers as well but if you plan to style your entire head I recommend that you purchase the salon or styling kit.
*Longevity of the Style…typically my curls only last about 2 to 3 days when I do a curlformer set. After the 3rd day I usually flat twist which turns out really cute with the left over curl definition.
Last week after co-washing my hair I decided to do a curlformer set. The products I used were: Jane Carter Solution Wrap and Roll, SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and I also used Jane Carter Solution nourish & shine to separate the curls. Check out some pics below:
