I love curlformers, but I was getting tired of the fat, juicy curls from the wide and long ones, also known as pink and orange. I lost my dang-on mind and bought the long and narrow (blue/green) ones.
I had to use 79... yes 79 of these things on my entire head. The long and narrow curlformers are less forgiving than the pink/orange ones. You CANNOT stuff too much hair in them. I felt like I got them too close to my scalp so they pulled. They were even more difficult to sleep in than the pink/orange ones and because I needed so many, they took forever to install.
When I took them out, I had elongated curls, which is a different look than the pink/orange. However, take a close look at my ends.
They just didn't curl right or something. Oh...and yes that is a Santa shirt. Don't judge me:-)
Now, this problem with the ends could be my fault. I thought the set was dry, but it may not have been. I spent the day in an overcast, windy San Francisco park. I had a great time, but the curls were worse for the wear at the end of the day.
I'm going to attempt second day hair, but I don't think it's going to work out. Because I have so little faith in second day hair, I'm going to try a different way of sleeping to preserve them. I'll let you know how it works. Anyway...the hair is well stretched, so I'll be able to work something out. LOL!
Because installing these suckers took so long, I will only plan to do the full 79 blue/green curlformer set for special occasions. For my next set I plan to put the back in pink/orange and the front in blue/green.
