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 …READ MORE
