How to use Curlformers (Plus Competition!)

Curlformers are an amazing way to curl your hair naturally and gently with no heat. They do look odd and take a little getting used to but when you have thick, heavy, uncurlable hair like mine, these little tubes of plastic do the trick where the best heat tools have failed.

I have shared my love of Curlformers many times and because they are so unusual and unlike anything else I am often asked how to use Curlformers.

How to use Curlformers

Curlformers come with two long rods with hooks on the end. To start, push the rod through the length of the Curlformer, making the Curlformer straight. On damp hair, loop a small section of hair through the hook, keep the opening of the Curlformer near your head open and then simply pull the rod out. As the rod is pulled out, your hair is pulled through the length. Twist the Curlformer back into it is correct, spiral shape and leave your hair to be beautifully curled. You can alternate curl direction easily as the left and right are colour coordinated.

For me, I have learnt how to sleep with Curlformers. At first, I could not sleep with them in so now start a little further down the length of my hair. They are not particularly uncomfortable, but I am a very light sleeper. My sister wore them in when she was my bridesmaid and had no issue sleeping in them at all.

For best results I have my hair brushed and combed so well first. I also use hair oils so that my end result will be super sleek. When I put the Curlformers in I have my husband Jon get the rods ready with the next Curlformer, so it only takes around 20 minutes to do my full head and then once finished less than 5 minutes to remove. To remove, straighten the Curlformer, open the top, and pull the Curlformer off. Retwist your hair back into the perfect spiral. Usually, I sleep in mine but if it is for an evening out I can speed up the process with a hairdryer and one of these hair helmet tools!

If you have liked the sound of these and wanted to try them for yourself, then you are in luck as I have been given the opportunity to give away one of the Curlformers Spiral Pro Styling Kits for super long hair. They come in a luxury, dark silver, satin vanity bag and are now different colours – 15 dark purple for clockwise curls and 15 dark purple with a gold strip for anti-clockwise curls. Good Luck!
