Have you ever tried Curlformers? Their bright colors and twisty shapes have been piquing my curiosity for months. How do they work? What in the world is that hook thing for? Would they give me gorgeous ringlets like the packaging promised? I HAD to try them! So, I did and what do you know? Ringlets!
Here’s how to do you it:
Step 1: Gather your supplies. You’ll need Curlformers (obviously) and a Curlformer Hook. The number of curlers you need depends on the length and amount of hair you have. To give you an idea, my hair is shoulder length and thin, and I used 17. A curl setting lotion or light gel is also recommended. I used Beyond The Zone Noodle Head Curling Cream. Bonus – It smells just like summer!
Step 2: Thoroughly wet the hair and work in a setting product. Comb through.
Step 3: Start by feeding a Curlformer onto the hook. Grab a section of hair (I used a 1” section but that’s up to your discretion.) and place it in the hook. Next, slowly pull the hook down so it passes through the Curlformer, while holding the end of the Curlformer that is closest to the scalp. Repeat until the entire head is encased.
Step 4: Either let your hair dry naturally or use a hair dryer. I let mine air dry for a bit, but as you can see in the pictures it was getting late, so I hit it with the dryer.
Step 5: Once your hair is completely dry, remove the Curlformers one at a time by straightening out the spiral, pinching the top of the Curlformer so it opens, and then pulling the Curlformer down off your pretty, pretty ringlet.
Step 6: Enjoy!
* Make sure your hair is completely dry before you remove the Curlformers. I got impatient and didn’t dry the back of my head that well, so those curls weren’t as defined.
* When you grab a section, twist it near the roots. This helps keep the hair together as you place it in the hook.
