Hello there you beautiful internet peoples you.
So a while ago I bought these 'bendy rollers' from Primark (Click Here to See the Haul) for £1.50 each because my Mum said they're really effective for curling your hair, so she bought them. I could already think of the benefits, they're foamy so they're not going to tug at your hair and there's no heat required. We bought two packets because my hair is relatively long.
So what I did (I've done this a few times now so I'm quite experienced ;) ) is take a bendy roller, roll some hair around it and twist the roller (it's bendy so it holds its place). I'm saying I did it, my Mum did it for me but that's what she did. I may not be explaining this well so I have a photo for you.
So the first time I did it, I left them in overnight after washing and blow drying my hair and the next morning I was left with springy curls! Unfortunately, it was a humid day so it went flat 5 minutes after I walked out the door, so no one at sixth form had even noticed a difference. So I did it again and left it in all weekend to see whether bendy rollers are ineffective or if it was just the humidity. So on Monday morning this happened...
You can tell how springy it is because my hair is usually quite a bit longer than that and lots of people thought I had cut my hair, this held all day. My only complaint is, and this is my fault for leaving it in all weekend, is that my hair felt quite dry because it was hard to massage moisturiser in over the weekend so it got a bit knotted. So if you do leave it in for extended periods of time, or just to be on the safe side - use moisturiser so it doesn't get knotted or tangly, or at least brush it through before you put it back in again.
The above picture is how it looked by the end of the day, it wasn't as short as it was before but that's my fault because I play with my hair and I pulled on it a lot. If you aren't a weirdo and you can leave your hair alone then it should stay springy all day.
- no heat
- long lasting
- can leave your hair feeling dry
- hair can get tangled
Overall, a top notch product, even if you don't want curls you can brush it out and have voluminous hair. That's actually the main reason I wanted it curled because my hair has gotten much thinner recently for reasons I shall not delve into. So if you live near a Primark, you can pick them up for £1.50 a packet. If Primark is not accessible to you, then I think you can order some from Amazon/eBay and I bet you can get it from quite a few shops but as Primark is accessible to me I couldn't tell you which shops so I apologise.
Thanks for reading! ☺☺☺
