Beauty Review: sponge curlers

I recently purchased a set of very inexpensive sponge hair curlers online to experiment with curling methods. While I love my hot curlers and they do a fabulous job, the thought of setting my hair before bed, and waking up with it ready to go, just seemed much easier, whilst living a busy lifestyle. Taking only five minutes, I dampened each section of hair with water from a spray bottle, and applied a small amount of hair spray, and set my entire head in 12 sponge curlers.

While they make look a little bulky, they’re actually really quite comfortable to sleep in! To ensure I didn’t ruin my curls while sleeping, I tied a silk head tie around my head, if you don’t own something like this, a tea towel, or scarf will do the trick! I was very anxious to see the results, as if it didn’t work out I’d have to spend a little longer to getting ready this morning, styling my failure into an up-do. But thankfully, they turned out better than I’d imagined!

The styling of this look took about 5 minutes, roughly three minutes to brush my curls into the style I desired, and two minutes to do a quick victory roll on top, and tie a head tie into place. With these new curlers I’ve discovered my new favourite method of hair curling, its simple, and even more effective than hot curlers. My hair feels softer as less product is used, and it has actually held the curls easier, and longer!

More updates coming soon, including tomorrow’s Sunday Pinup Tip!

    Fun review of sponge curlers. It’s a great way to get curl in your hair minus the damage products like curling irons or hot rollers can cause (speaking from personal experience). Rag curlers (I’ve got a set that are foam-filled rags with wire twists on the end) also do the trick nicely.

    My mom still uses these! Last time I purchased these it was at a drugstore. They don’t carry them in large quantities and they are uncomfortable to sleep in. Enjoy though. This is why 90% of my hair is VERY short and I only have a long tail down the back. Best of both worlds and easy to care for.
