I would like to share with you lovely lot how I get luscious curls without a curling iron or heat based products and at an affordable price.
I have always wanted to curl my hair but not wanted to use a heat based product as they can damage your hair overtime so I looked into rollers and I decided to use bendy rollers as they looked best as you can do different size curls and they look very easy to use.
I went with the Allura bendy rollers from Poundland aka dreamland for bargains and I used 4 packs of rollers, each pack contains 8 rollers. All together I have 32 rollers. I have quite long hair so that’s why I went with 32 but depending or your hair thickness and length then you may need a different amount.
I’ve only ever used the bendy rollers on freshly washed hair but the product I used says that you can use them either on wet or dry hair. In my opinion they work really well on wet hair.
I find the best way to use bendy rollers on freshly washed hair but you can always spray your hair with water before.
Before we start the tutorial you will need:
1 x Comb with a pointed end.
1 x Hair brush.
Bendy rollers (your chosen amount)
1 x spray bottle containing water (For dry hair)
1 x Octopus claw clip
I used my beautiful twin sister Kloe as a model for this blog. She has long hair and it is at a medium thickness. It naturally has a few curls in it.
Let’s begin the tutorial:
1. After washing I will brush my hair and then roughly dry the tips of my hair with a towel
2. Using a comb, I will section a layer of hair starting at the bottom of my head, then clip the rest up. I find it easier to work with a small layer at a time.
3. Once I’ve got my layer I will then I will mostly split it into 3 small section depending on how much hair you’ve got in that layer. If you want larger curls, you’ll put more in and for a smaller curl you’ll put less in.
4. You can then wrap the hair around the roller either way but I wrap it around towards me making sure the tip is neatly wrapped, but most importantly when wrapping try and keep it as tight as possible as this helps them keep the shape.
5. After wrapping the hair around the roller and rolling it to the root bend the ends of the roller onto the hair so it feels tight.
6. Repeat steps 2 to 5 until all your hair is neatly wrapped in a roller then leave them in for about 5 to 6 hours. The longer you leave them in the tighter the curls will be.
You can sleep with the rollers in but in my opinion I find them quite uncomfortable. So, I always do mine in the morning and then I take them out in the evening.
Now it’s time to start unrolling each roller individually, its best to start where you first started rolling them up otherwise they get tangled in other ones and it can get messy.
After all rollers are removed I will give my hair a shake and comb it through with my fingers. I find it best not to brush the hair as it can undo all your hard work as it loosens the shape of the curls.
I don’t use any products on my hair after taking the curlers out but some people use a moose or hairspray but it’s totally up to you.
I’ve used these bendy rollers quite a few times and every time it amazes me how well they work and for a £1 each I can’t complain. The bendy rollers are really easy to use and I would recommend these to anyone wanting to curl their hair without heat. I can’t stop raving out bendy rollers they are so good.
Bendy rollers or flexi rollers as they are also known are available at most beauty shops. I got mine from poundland . They are also available at Primark and they do them in small and large.
From all my babbling, you can kind of tell this is my first tutorial post. Please let me know if my tutorial worked for you as I’d love to see the results.
All my Love
