Curlers

This was Beans the first time we did a hair do with these fun home made curlers. When I came to edit and fix this post this was one of the only ones that still showed up. I think I found the reason why I lost my pictures from old posts... Photobucket. I think I was using that for a while for some of these posts and I must have deleted them from that and not realized it would effect the website. Oops- my bad.

Doesn't she look so little in this picture? We've been doing Girly Do's for a long time.
The original post was to show this fun new hair curler that I had made and wanted to try out. I found them at this website and made them while my husband was remodeling the house. I've never been super impressed by the curls. They are pretty and look light, but they don't last long. So I went and picked up some setting lotion for this time around to see if they last longer.
The setting lotion did make a huge difference. This is a concentrated formula, so you need an extra water bottle to mix it. You apply it to the hair as you are rolling it. Each strand add a little and smooth it over the hair before you roll it.
I also discovered that I need more curlers... Her head had got bigger since the last time we used these. We still went forward and rolled the hair so that it would have a spiral finish. She slept in the curlers and they stayed in nicely. All except for the one that was in her bangs--- LOL. She reports that it wasn't hard to sleep with them in- they are rather soft.
In the end... BIG FAT SPIRALS that held up a lot better than the first time we did this tutorial. I am sure the setting lotion helped out a lot. I love these fun curlers--- have you made your own set since I first posted this tutorial back in 2008?

  1. After seeing this post (on the original blog :-( so sorry about that!), I whipped some up for my girls. My oldest has long, thick hair and the curls stayed in beautifully all day. They relaxed a bit, but were still pretty. My middle daughter has short hair and they didn't stay in her hair, but she made sure they were all out in a matter of 10 minutes! My youngest is 3 and has thin hair. Our results with her hair were about the same as yours! But they are a fun addition to our "hair stockpile!"

  7. Where did you get the setting lotion? Could you use a gel (would that work as well)?

  8. I just made some of these last night for myself (but I used snaps, I hate button holes!) and I just sprayed my hair with a little water and rolled them up :) they turned out great!!!!! I have naturally curly hair but not pretty curls, these turned out really well!!!! Thank you! I've been needing some curlers :)

  9. If you did her hair in smaller pieces her hair would go curlier, especially if your daughter has think hair. I also like to tie an old silk/polyester scarf around my daughters head at night and that helps keep the ones with shorter hair in and keep them nice and smooth. If you curl them all the same direction the curls with blend together as the day goes on, if you alternate directions of the curl (one forward and then one curled towards the back) then the your curls won't blend together as the day goes on and with stay a bit more separated.

  13. You've got me wondering if I could pull the hard plastic out of the foam rollers, and add a fabric tie through the center of the foam. May have to play with that idea, since i already have the foam rollers, but your rollers are wonderful!

  14. This has me wondering if I could pull the hard plastic out of the soft foam rollers, and replace it with yarn or fabric ties through the middle of the foam. I already have a lot of the foam rollers, so this might be worth trying, but your rollers are wonderful. I'll probably have to try yours too!
