Curlformers Part 2 - The Results!

Well, I must say that I am very impressed with my first attempt at curlformers and I will say that they were definitely worth the investment.
To begin, when I bought the curlformers I only bought a single package of 8 because of the price I wanted to try them before investing a huge amount of money. I was 2-4 curlformers short of being able to do her whole head but I figured that was fine because of what I was planning to do in her hair anyways.
So Thursday night we washed hair and put in the curlformers. I'm also going to note that I did NOT use ANY product in her hair for our trial run, not the night before, not the next day, not at all. Friday morning we overslept and were running late getting out of the house. To do her hair I quickly took out the two back curlformers and I was already impressed!
Next we did a really loose and quick braid up the back of her head and then took out the rest of the curlformers and put everything into one pony.

Here is the result: Beautiful curly pony.
Side view:
This next pic is Friday night when we took out the pony and the braid, note that the curls are still holding great without using any product!
the last pic is a bonus pic of Saturday morning after sleeping on the curls from Friday see that the curls are STILL intact! (Just a little messy!)
Overall we had a great first run at using curlformers and I can't wait to get out and grab another 8 pack for Kenz's hair. One more note I want to add is that Kenz has very straight, thin hair. It does not hold curl from anything else! This product really works :)


Since I'm currently posting about Curlformers, I thought I would include a link to a giveaway going on right now over at Beads, Braids and Beyond! Check it out!

Curlformers Part 1

So I've seen the posts by many others and decided I wanted to try curlformers. Now, I am no hair expert. If you saw my hair you would be appalled, I don't even own a curling iron! (Yes, it's true!) So I researched these curlformers and being that I'm in Canada, could not find them anywhere. So I visited the Sally's website and tried to order them... only they don't ship to Canada. Finally I found a brand new Sally's store pretty close to where I live. Great, I visited the store yesterday and picked up my first package of 8 curlformers for Kenz's hair. At twice the price it's sold on the website I wanted to be sure they would curl Kenz's pin-straight hair so I only grabbed one package. I've gotta say that I was impressed.
After Kenz had her bath and washed her hair last night I went to work putting the curlformers in. Pretty easy. Only 8 wasn't enough for her head (I figured it wouldn't be). So we did the top part of her head and she went to bed, I left the back out of the curlformers because I knew what I was planning for today. Anyways, here are the pics of Kenz wearing her curlformers, later on I will post part 2, with the results :)

Stay Tuned!

So after a long winter's break, Kenz and I have decided we want to continue blogging this spring. But why have we been away you ask?? Well, we live in Ontario Canada so while winter is wonderful and we love the snow, we wear alot of basic braids and ponies that I don't need to worry about under a warm winter hat. As much as I love fancy styles and I still did quite a few over the winter months, it just wasn't a regular thing. The second reason we haven't been doing alot with hair is because Kenz's hair has been SUPER dry and really prone to breakage, you might even see a bit in some of the styles we're going to post, thankfully with the warmer weather it seems to be less dry and able to tolerate her hair being done more often. But the good news is the snow is gone and spring has sprung, even way up here in Canada. So stay tuned because we're back and we already have a few styles waiting in our folder to post :)
