I spent a long time last night looking at all the different things but it just feels too complicated. I've not ruled it out though so thanks for your efforts

I am going to try them on your recommendation. So hope you are prepared for the ear bashing you deserve when hair is inevitably poker straight again approx 3 mins after rollers are out.

I practiced last week and also practised fake eye lashes before nursery run (had to de-glam before leaving the house).

Will be doing it again on birthday night out... Hopefully va va voom

BadgersArse Fri 24-Jul-09 17:31:20

yes it does give the air of havign bothered to blow dry.

brimfull Fri 24-Jul-09 21:16:34

I tried
quite good but the va vav voom didn't last long

is your hair slightly damp whe you put them in and then you blast the curlers with dryer

I tried with them in damp hair and my hair came out damp after ages

PrincessToadstool Fri 24-Jul-09 21:19:31

How much do they cost? How long does youf hair need to be?

leoleosuperstar Sat 25-Jul-09 10:40:13

I am no expert but I did it on almost dry hair and I moosed (sp?) in volumising spray and left for about 15 minutes.

My hair is shoulder length with shorter layers.

Approx £5? I got mine free by asking if anyone had any - most people have them laying about but not being used.
