7 Tips For The Best Curlformers Set Ever

97fe582863a49ba1735ffbfb98a899483. Make sure your hair is soaking wet

Soaking wet hair gives you the best sets hands down. So have your spray bottle handy to spray your hair with your water solution. One tip is if you are using a setting foam, make sure your hair is wet first. This makes sure your hair really sets well which leads me to my next point…

4. Install the curl formers close to the root

This is very important because it allows your hair to get maximum stretch and that sleek look that you are looking for. Push the curl former up to the root of your hair as close as you can manage to get it.

5. Let that bad boy dry completely

It can get super annoying to wait on a set that you really want to see the results for, but trust me when I tell you if you do not let your hair dry, you will be very disappointed.

Sit under a hooded dryer if you have one or sleep with them overnight. They are made to allow air to pass through so if you plan to sleep with them you should wake up with dry hair.


Personally, I like to half dry with a dryer first and then sleep with them for good measure. I won’t say that you will have the most comfortable night’s sleep, but chalk that up to the price of beauty.

6. Use minimal product

Before you set your hair, you will have enough moisture from the water, and your setting lotion to keep your hair very moisturized. When you finally remove the Curlformers, you won’t need to add anything else to moisturize your hair.

If you want to, you can use a little bit of light oil to your fingertips as you remove them from your hair. The oil gives your hair just the right amount of sheen it needs, and as you style the curls, it makes sure you have no friction on your fingers.

7. Styling

This is personal preference, but if you allow the curls to remain tight for the first day or two, as the week moves along, they will fall, making a once tight curly set into a sleek wavy set by Saturday.

This set will last all week long, so it’s perfect if you like to wear your hair stretched and not touch it again until wash day at the end of the week. If you want to make it last beyond a week, then the second week you can style your hair in buns or ponytails or just leave it stretched; it just depends on how your hair is holding up.

That’s it: have you tried Curlformers yet?

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

      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.

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

    Why aren’t the salons doing this for folks?

    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.

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

  8. Ruth Dyson

    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 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.

    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!

    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
