Hola Chicas,

I don’t know what it’s like in your neck of the woods, but it’s chilly here in NC! With the humidity and dew point dropping, I’ve been considering experimenting with my Curlformers again.

Here are some pics from last winter’s Curlformer adventures:

In the past, I did one set a week (Sundays of course, and air-dry over night), and wore it primarily in protective styles. Curlformer sets make for easy and beautiful updos– excellent for growing out your curls! The immediate result is similar to an old school press and curl–not really a good look if you like big, wild hair. As the days wear on, it gets bigger and poofier, especially if the humidity from the shower gets to it.

Here’s the instructional video I watched last year:

Although her instructions are very straightforward, it’ll take you a minute to adjust to ‘the motion’. I remember becoming incredibly frustrated the first go round…it took me like an hour and a half to finish! After that, it was easy peasy 🙂 They’re expensive, but much easier to apply than rollers in my opinion.

I’ll probably dust them off this weekend after doing a much needed henna treatment (I’m going on 1.5 months…tripping).

Later Gators,
