Putting The Rollers In
I'm sure there is a scientific way of actually putting these rollers in and I should probably see if I can find someone on YouTube to teach me, but I do it in a kind of haphazard way and it seems to work for my hair. I blow dry it first and put some curl cream in it, or a little bit of beach wave spray before I put the rollers in. It helps my hair if it's slightly damp and I leave them in for fifteen minutes or so.
The result is a nice structured curl rather than my usual bed-hair-even-when-its-just-been-washed type style. What I like about these curlers is:
a) they don't snag my hair, or get tangled in it
b) they aren't hot so I don't burn my fingers which does happen sometimes with my heated rollers
c) I can pop them in really quickly so if I'm in a rush and having one of those mornings where I really need to multi task a lot its perfect, I can whip them out just before I leave the house, grabbing the kids, school bags and PE kits at the same time.
I go through phases with rollers, I won't use them for months then I'll use them all the time. It's nice to have a choice of heated or these bendy ones and the curling wand too (though I burn myself a LOT with that I must admit).
The bendy rollers I use are from Sainsburys for £3.00 and there are 8 in a packet. You can also get them from Tescos and Superdrug. Leo Bancroft the celebrity hair stylist also does some for Sainsbury's they are black and a little bit thicker so the curls are a bit wider (which is nice if you want a change).
As they are basically a bit of sponge with a wire in the middle they do tend to poke through after a while and then you have to chuck them away but they are easily replaceable and I don't mind as they are inexpensive. I've also taken them on holiday and used them on damp hair and let it dry. They aren't heavy or cumbersome so good for travel.
