I had such great success with my Spiral Extra Long and Wide (Pink and orange) Curlformer styling kit that I've really been debating on whether or not I wanted to invest in the Corkscrew Long and Narrow (Blue and Green) kit. These kits aren't cheap and ya girl ain't rich so I put those thoughts on the back burner for a while.
Apparently someone over at HairFlair (the makers of Curlformers) heard about how I'd been
Happier than a 5 year old on Christmas.
Anxiously, I put these bad boys to the test over the weekend. I used my usual products but I had to change my technique up a little bit.
These curlformers are more narrow and my hair is pretty thick, so I wasn't sure if my set of 40 would be enough for my entire head. I decided to try a flat twist out---with the curlformers at the end.
I did a total of 13 flat twists with 2 curlformers on the ends of each. Then I used the rest of the curlformers at the very top of my head for added volume. I also added a tiny dab of gel to the ends before installing to keep the curls smooth after take down.
Here's what it looked like after take down.
Then I had to fluff it like crazy because the curls were defined---but flat.
I don't hate it---but I'm not sure if I love it either. For the first day, I did a half up/half down high bun. They next day, I pulled all of the curls over for a romantic sideswept look. I have to admit, the curls really held up well. My hair was super moisturized and the addition of that dab of gel on the ends was a game changer.
Have you ever tried the corkscrew curlformers? Were they winners?
