I've been setting my hair for many years now but one thing I've never been able to do is sleep in curlers. I have very thick hair and need a lot of curlers so it is just too darned uncomfortable for me to sleep in them, they just stick in my head and I don't get any sleep at all.
Of course I have options, I have heated rollers and if I want to set my hair without heated rollers I need to spend the day in curlers, however if I need my hair setting in the morning it would be really good if I could sleep in curlers. So what to do....
Well I was standing in the queue at Tesco the other day and I spotted some cheap sponge curlers 3 packs for £3, and I suddenly had a brainwave, so I'm sharing it with you!
These are the curlers.
I removed all the plastic bits and then cut up some fabric, and wound the piece of fabric round the middle plastic bit that originally went through the curler.
Then start to push the fabric through the curler.
All the way through until it looks like this
Eventually you'll end up with some looking like this
The advantage of them is that they are like curlers without the hard bit and have more substance that just using rags, which I have done in the past but again as I have thick hair it's harder to do, whereas with the curler it just makes it much easier.
Here are a couple of pictures of me with them in
I must confess I wasn't sure if they would work, I was perfectly comfortable in them and would have slept very soundly had my husband not snored like a walrus through the night!
So now the big reveal did they work? Well this is me having just removed them
And once brushed and styled, YES a success, I'll definitely be using them again, I don't need to set my hair every night I'm lucky that way but I now have a method that I can use overnight to sleep in. I'm pretty pleased with myself!
I'd love to know if anyone is interested in using this. It's really worked for me. Of course I set it dry as you can see, I've never been able to set my hair wet or even damp, it just doesn't dry, so dry set all the way for me.
