Many of you might be looking for the variety of styles that you can probably rock this winter, and let me tell you, if you can get a Curlformers set down, you will literally be set for the cold months.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that me and those spirally things do not get along. When I first went to Sally’s to spend a disrespectful amount of money on my set, I tried to use them that same night. I grabbed the grey hook and I don’t know if it was my two left hands, or just my excitement, but I could not get any of my hair through the spiral!

I tried a couple of times more, before giving up…the next day, I took everything back. Then like every indecisive natural, I waited a year and then tried again.

Girl let me tell you with a little practice and a splash of determination you will have the prettiest curls and waves you have ever seen on your head.

If you want to try Curlformers keep reading, because after two years on trial and error, I have some pretty good tips.

1. Buy the right size and enough of them

It is so easy to run out of Curlformers, so you want to have enough to do your entire head. Basically its better to over buy than under buy. They aren’t cheap so if you dont want to spend that coin you can try some of the cheaper versions online. I won’t even lie to you and say they are anything like the originals, because they aren’t but they will give you a similar result.


Make sure you also have the right size for your length of hair, it is important that all of your hair fits in the spiral and you have none hanging out for a great set. Plus you want your ends covered or they will get dry and a bit frizzy in comparison to the length of your hair.

2. Make sure your hair is detangled

I mean, proper Denman brush, until you can run your fingers through detangled. Detangling ensures that your hair is smooth and that your hair comes out super smooth after the set.

There really is nothing to it, just go through section by section detangle, set, repeat.

i ADORE curlformers, but they tend to come out better in my daughter’s hair than mine, we have different porosity and texture

I agree i have to set under thr dryer with them. But the comfort is better as far as overnight sleep.

Shdale Huguely

Alisha Peele

Who in the world can sleep with this mess in their head

Joy Jenkins-Parker

My 8 yr old daughter has had then in her head and slept with them in overnight. She had no problem. They’re soft, rubbery, and bendable. She loves them.

Chembo Agatha

love them. tried them when my hair was relaxed and they were great. but after my bc, im reluctant to try them since i have 4c hair, hope to try them when my hair gets a little longer

Angel Park

I hate Sally’s… They follow me around the store like I’m going to steal their precious hair products…so annoying

Nicole Hayes

I wanna try that!!

talesia98

Why aren’t the salons doing this for folks?

Kelly White

That’s too much

Tiffany Moore

I’m natural, and they only last the first day for me. I may be doing something wrong not to be able to get a week out of the style. Maybe I need to try the slender (green and blue) curlformers.

Rachael Victoria Mullings

Yes, just what I nees for Ivy. Will look for on Amazon now X

Tiffany Hush

How do you retain the curls without the curls messing up at night?

I bought Curlformers not knowing what they were or how to use them. I had the lady in Sally’s show me how to use them on a “head” used to demonstrate color. I only purchased two packages; they were on sale. I now wish I’d bought more because I do love the way the curls look afterward. Sleeping on them is not as bad as one would think. They are super soft and hard to notice when you are sleeping.

I can’t wait to try them

Esther Williams Jordan

I really like the look but mine only last a day it two not a week…ever. I have tried foam and gel. The back goes straight first. It is pretty though. Rods hold a bit longer.

Jessica Robinson

I want to try them but i dont want to come off 70 bucks for them at sallys

Natasha Robinson B

Tried once took over 2 hours to do and only lasted a day…never again! !!!

I do really like the look you get with the curlforms! I bought a set of 30 (they are the pink & orange) for like $20 on Amazon. They take a bit of practice to master, but they are amazing and I was able to get a week out of my set. Thanks for the tips!

Carlene M Mckenzie

I find these soooooo damn heavy I can’t keep them in for more than 30 mins- but the curls are amazing – just wish I could keep them in longer without getting a headache
