Kid Friendly Heat-Free Overnight Curls: We’re in Love!


You guys, I have to share with you these awesome overnight heat-free curlers that I found!  Lately my daughter Summer has been really loving all the attention I’ve been giving to her hair.  She wants, all the styles.  One thing we hadn’t been able to play around with much was curls.  And I have to confess, I love curls.  Especially cascading from my adorable little daughter’s head!  Of course, she doesn’t want a hot curling iron anywhere near her and really, neither do I.  Aside from fear, her sleek silky hair would NEVER cooperate, we have tried.  So I found these magical little curlers and tried them out.  To my amazement, they work.  I mean, really work.  It was pure curl magic.  There is a slight learning curve but with a little patience you’ll get it quick and you’ll be so glad that you did!


Inside the package you will find your curlers and your hook, there are three parts that need to be snapped together.  The curlers are hollow and have a grippy edge at each end which holds the hair in place.  Start with damp hair and then slide your hook through a curler.  Take the hair in small sections, twist the hair tightly at the scalp and place it into the hook.  While holding the hair in the hook slowly pull the hair through the curler.  This is where I had some trouble, the directions in my package don’t stress the twisting part but really, the twisting is key.  If you don’t have a tight enough twist the hair gets snagged inside the curler and won’t pull through.   The twist keeps the hair in a tight section that makes it easy for it to be pulled through the curler.


Once I got use to the process I thought the curlers were great, easy to use and super kid friendly.  I love the fact that I can set them at night and she can wake up to beautiful morning curls!  I worried they might be uncomfortable for her to sleep on but she didn’t seem to mind at all.  In fact, she kept them in for hours this morning because she wanted to be “extra curly!”  Taking them out was really simple, just pull at the end and the hair is free.  My favorite part?  No hairspray needed!  These springy natural looking curls held tight all day!  I honestly still can’t believe it.  As a person with natural wave who frequents the curling iron for fancy nights out, I am really looking forward to trying these bad boys out on my own hair!  No more sweaty curling iron, no more trying to squeeze in the time to use the sweaty curling iron, no more sticky hairspray, I am pretty excited with all the possibilities here.  In fact, I may just have to try these on for fun tonight!


I ordered mine from Ebay but now I am wishing that I had checked Amazon first because I am finding a much broader variety on Amazon with free shipping, I paid shipping for these and I never pay shipping that is like my cardinal rule!  I have seen kits in prices ranging from around $10 all the way up to $70!  I am not sure what the differences are but I paid around $15 total with shipping for mine and it came with 20 extra long curlers.  Now that I found all the Amazon options I am seeing that you can get them in a shorter length which might be better for a child or a person with short hair although we had no issues using the long ones, I just twisted them all together in the back making what looked like a curl braid or pony tail type thing.  I can imagine that made it more comfortable to sleep then a lot of small ones all over her head would have been but I don’t know first hand.  If you have tried them I would love to know about your experience!


We ended up down at the park late in the day, I snapped these shots around 8 hours after we released her hair from the curlers.  I am really impressed with how well the curls held and how natural they look.  It’s like she has that perfect beach loose curl.  Again, this with no hairspray in very fine smooth hair that would previously not hold curls using a traditional curling iron.  I honestly love these things, they got me so excited I had to share!
