Curlformer Set at 9 Weeks Post

So yesterday I decided to cowash my hair and try out my new curlfomers. I ordered them online from Sally's while they were offering their 20% discount on online purchases.  I purchased the Curlformer kit in extra long and wide which includes 40 curlformers and two rods.  I also ordered 3 more packs of 6 to make sure I had enough, and it's a good thing because I ended up using 51.  I probably could have gone with the long and wide instead of extra long and wide, but I wanted to be able to grow into them...they are not cheap.
Tried to get a pic of the back;
two different colors spiral in different directions
I got the urge to try these out after watching Naptural85's youtube video tutorial.  After seeing the smooth results she got on her natural hair, I definitely had to give them a try.  Please check out her video below.



They were pretty easy to install and I did them while I was sitting on the couch watching TV. Lol!.Like in Whitney's video above I started from the back and worked my way up. It probably took me an hour and a half or so(probably because I was sitting on the couch watching TV...Ha ha!).  I kept my spray bottle(setting lotion diluted with distilled water) at my side to re-wet as I installed.  I ended up sleeping with the curlformers in my hair so they could air dry and so I could wake up with fresh curls in the a.m.  I will admit that they weren't the easiest to sleep in, but I've dealt with worse to wake up with cute hair. The things we go through...lol! My hair was completely dry by morning. Check out my results.

Separated curls for fullness and threw on a headband

I was very pleased with how my hair turned out.  Smooth, shiny curls with absolutely no heat.  I am currently about 9 weeks post.  The curlformers definitely helped a bit with stretching out my new growth. This will be a new option for me to go to during my stretches. I'm almost at 10 weeks post and squeaking with excitement! I was an every 6 week touch up girl before starting my HHJ so I'm pretty proud of me right now.  I was able to get up to 8 week stretches, now working on 10.  Woot woot!

Has anyone else tried using curlformers? How did you like them?


Thanks for reading,

    1. Thank you so much! The Curlformer Styling Kit alone averages around $70 and the 6 packs are around $14. I was able to use my Sally's Beauty club discount plus 20% online discount, so the kit ended up costing me about $52 and the 6 packs were about $10 each. You may even be able to find them on ebay for cheaper.

  5. Love the results! I have always wanted to try them but cringed at the price, especially not knowing how many I would need to cover my whole head. Your hair looks amazing and congrats on prolonging your stretch!

  6. I too saw Naptural85's video and she inspired me to continue my transition. And now here you go inspiring me to go spend a pretty penny and get some Curlformers. Darn you! JK! But seriously though, great results!

  7. Hey ladies just thought I'd share that Sally's Beauty Supply is offering a 25% discount on online orders $60 or more for Mother's Day. It's today only though. I'm not sure if they do international shipping but it's worth a look. SallyBeauty.com
