Confession… I am really lazy with my hair. I know, I know I should but I honestly don’t have the time. It takes me 45 mintues, at least, to get to work in the morning meaning that I have to leave early, so getting up earlier to do my hair each morning is a luxury I can’t manage.
I was therefore really excited when my mum picked me up a bag of these sleep in rollers. They seem like a really great idea, but then a lot of beauty products do and in actuality they come to nothing, but it is with an open mind that I am reviewing these for you!
So first of all I really love the bag that you get the product in, it’s really convenient and you literally get everything you need in this cute white bag. As you can see in the above pictures, you get a DVD, the rollers and a small bag of Bobby pins.
So the rollers are really soft, as you might have guessed and they are also really flexible.
- Designed to allow you to sleep and wake up with curl and bounce.
So here is moi, before and with the rollers in…
- For people that have no experience of using or inserting rollers, there is a step-by-step DVD that helps take you through the process. I was pretty disappointed with the DVD because it’s not very detailed and the young lady presenting it continued to call the viewer honey, which really annoyed me after a while.
- There also seems to be a slight contradiction regarding the best practice with regard to the application also, as the packaging states that for best results they should be used on “clean, dry hair” (see below, step one). Yet the DVD suggests they should be used on wet. I decided to try dry because I watned to straighten my hair for the best results but these instructions seemed really confused.
- Application itself is really really easy, and it took me a lot less time than I had imagined. The hardest and fiddliest bit was inserting the bobby pins to hold the rollers in.
- They feel really secure actually and I can feel that they will stay in pretty well.
Sleeping in them…
- They don’t hurt in the slightest and in that sense, they are definitely better than the other harder varieties but I wouldn’t say they were particularly comfortable. The Velcro sticks in to the side of your head slightly, and they obviously create a second layer meaning your head is obviously levitated. I woke up a few times during the night and was unable to get my head at a comfortable angle. So while they don’t hurt, they aren’t as comfortable as the lady on the DVD would have you think.
- I found that taking these out of my hair was the hardest part because the Velcro really does make that a challenge.
- The rollers defiantly add shape and volume, and work really well on long layered hair.
- The volume lasted all day, but I did find my hair was a lot frizzy that it would normally be at this time of day.
Verdict- I quite like these actually, because they are really easy to apply and have a really good impact. I don’t think they are particularly comfortable in bed, but they are comfortable and you could easily where them all day. I would recommend these to people that are short on time in the morning and are long for an easy way to add volume. They are good value for money too
