    Amazing, Brushable , 3-day curls. (Really), February 9, 2014

    Sparrow (Cleveland, Ohio) –

    This review is from: Conair Styling Essentials Pillow Soft Rollers / Curlers, 18 Ct (Misc.)

    I have tried every type of curler out there: curling irons, hot rollers, steam rollers, bendy-rollers that heat up, stick-shaped bendy rollers that don’t heat up, foam curlers, velcro curlers… You get the idea. They all fail. Or, to be fair, they all look lovely for about 15 minutes after I take them out, and then promptly fall.

    Admittedly, I have the hard to curl type of hair- it’s very long (I can sit on it), it’s very fine, and normally straight. Except it doesn’t dry straight- it dries wavy, but the minute I brish it, it just looks frizzy. Long hair in general is always harder to curl, because the sheer weight of it is counter-productive to bouncy, light-weight curls, but I hve finally found the solution- these puppies WILL give you super-bouncy, full, three day curls, that you can brush through without fear of them falling out (this has been my other big issue: I don’t like hair that I can’t run my hands through or touch- I prefer the way curls look after they’ve been brushed, and spring back. But any other type of curl just brushes out).

    The Conair Pillow Soft Roller are essentially an updated rag roller. They’re comprised of a square piece of foam, a wire that runs through the middle of it and sticks out each side, for twisting closed, and the whole thing is covered in very soft cotton (like t-shirt material).

    There is a trick to using them, and they are not without their flaws, but they really do work when used right, and I heartily recommend them to anyone out there who has hair similar to mine and wants curls.

    First, the Pro’s and Con’s:

    PRO’s:

    * Super soft and comfortable- I don’t even notice them sleeping. I know a lot of rollers say that, but honestly, thee are the only one i’ve found this to be true with. Also, b/c there is no “clasp” per say- again, they twist closed- there’s no kink from the clasp you get with foam rollers.

    * Surprisingly hold a lot of hair, give their size. Again- my hair is long enough to sit on, and I can usually do it all with 20-25 rollers. The thinner the sections you roll, the better the curls, and b/c I now have a couple sets, I use more, but if your hair is shoulder length to mid back, 18 will work fine.

    * Creates super-strong, super-bouncy curls, that can be brushed through, and which then bounce back into place into even prettier, softer, spiral type curls.

    * When done right, the curls will last you a minimum of 3 days. Maybe longer: I wash my hair every day, but earlier this winter our pipes froze and then burst, and we were without water for three days. My curls were a perfect on day 3 as they were on day 1.

    THE CONS:

    * TIME CONSUMING: The process of rolling them only takes about 15 minutes, and you don’t even need to look at a mirror to see what you’re doing- BUT…. They require a minimum of 6-8 hours for the type of curls I’m waxing poetic about (more about that in a minute)

    * QUALITY: The wire that goes through the foam is similar in size and purpose to that of a twist-tie for a produce bag at the grocery store. This means, they’re pretty flimsy- again, you’ve got a square piece of foam with a long wire through it- and after about three months of daily use, the end of the wire that stick out on each end of the foam, which are used to twist the curler shut- will break off, leaving you with a piece of foam and a wire inside it, but not enough on the ends to twist the curler shut.
    FYI: You can drag out replacing them by simply tying the two ends of the cloth shut, but they’re a pain to get out, and I only can do this with the shorter layers of my hair. Anything past mid back will take up too much space to give you enough room leftover to tie.

    * QUALITY (again): The cotton covering the whole thing is thin, and the wire tends to poke through it. I try to circumvent this from happening by twisting the wire ends into a curve, but it’s hard to to b/c they’re covered. This also takes up more valuable space if you have long hair.

    * PRICE: This by far irks me the most- I bought my first pack of 18 from a Walgreens, and paid $13.00- I assumed the high tag was b/c they were sold at a drug store, but online, they’re even more- $19 plus shipping?! For foam, twist-tie and tshirt?! Meh. That’s a bit of a stretch Conair. Particularly given the fact that they need frequent replacing.

    NOW, ABOUT THAT 6-8 HOUR TURN AROUND TIME:

    I love these things- but they do require some time investment to get them right- so here’s how to get three day curls. Any time I have deviated from this pattern, they haven’t worked- either the curls didn’t take, or they fell out within half an hour, or when I brushed them- but I promise, if you follow these steps, they will work.

    1. Wash and condition your hair, and let it air dry almost to dry- but once your hair has fully dried, don’t bother,…

    I am quite happy with these rollers! So easy and soft to sleep in, easy to roll. I actually have very think medium length hair so I bought 2 packs and I’m glad I did.

    My hair does not get caught in them. I do small strands on damp hair with gel, pomade or mousse so it holds very well so they are springy when they are unrolled.
