I was skeptical as to whether or not these would actually work so I gave them a try. I made mine with a slightly smaller circumference than the original. They turned out so cute!
It took 12 to wrap my daughter's hair like this. I wrapped it when her hair was freshly washed and still damp. I also put some mousse in her hair prior to wrapping.
She slept on them the whole night and in the morning, after unwrapping and separating the curls, Viola! A beautiful head of curls, perfect for church!
The curls realxed quite a bit throughout the day, and I think it would have been better if I had wrapped her hair when it had dried a bit more, as well as using more curlers with less hair per curler. It also could help to heat the curlers with the blowdryer in the morning, then unwrapping after they cool completely.
I think I will continue to use these since the curls turned out so much better than those annoying pink sponge curlers that leave the hair frizzy and tangled. They also don't leave that irritating band mark in the hair that the sponge ones leave.
I'm off to make some more. I think I need to make a TON to keep on hand for gifts!
