Thanks sweets!  I also want to re-thank Shawnee over at Life with Monkey for such an awesome tutorial!  She deserves 99% of the credit (the other 1% of credit probably goes to my dad, because without his genes I wouldn't have such great hair!).

hmmm i just read the entire thread and am intrigued.  I've always wanted curly (or even wavy) hair.
how long does it take to roll your hair?

I've been using hot rollers for a very long time, and it's very similar, so it only takes me maybe 10 minutes and my hair hits about mid-back.  I'm sure, like all things, it gets easier with practice, because you'll get the technique down, where the sections go, etc.

I love these! I cannot wait to make them.
I have straight, tangley hair, often borderline ratty or frizzy, that won't curl at all!
It won't hold a heat set ever, and the only way I can set it is to dampen it with a product like mousse or spray, and then roll it and leave it for about 6 hours. So i really need a curler I can sleep in but won't make funny kinks like those foam ones! This looks like it will work perfectly.

oh my gosh, I just HAVE to make this, never seen anything like it and it's just what I've been looking for!!! I don't like the idea of using my curling iron, just thinking about the heat frazzling my hair is bad enough!

This is a wonderful idea for a more bouncy look than the usual rag roller. It makes less tight curls than the way I normally do it with the rags.


I just take a long strip of cloth and roll my hair up on this. No sewing involved. I make mine about a foot long and maybe about two inches wide. No hemming either. Just roll your hair up on the strips and tie a knot. Don't tie it really tight because you won't it to be easy to untie in the morning. I don't wet my hair either, just set it dry. In the morning, I just finger comb it all out. It last most of the day for me and I have fine hair. It does make it curlier than the sewn ones though. The sewn ones give you a lot of body but less curly look. The more curls you set, the curlier the hair.

You don't have to get it right the first time, just the last time.

I should have posted this earlier in case anyone, like me, still found it uncomfortable to sleep in the curlers, no matter how soft they are.  I put my hair in a ponytail on top of  my head and then put the hair hanging out of the pony in the curlers.  I have used as little as 3 curlers for big soft curls and as many as 10 curlers for small, tight curls. 

I set my hair practically every night before going to bed.  It takes 5 minutes, tops.  I usually start with dry hair (or blow dried to nearly dry) then spritz with water lightly and add some hair setting gel before rolling.

I get compliments on my hair all the time!  In fact, on the rare occasions I've had to run out, my friends didn't know I was setting my hair.  The rollers are so pretty and colorful that when my hair is in a "roller bun" my friends thought this was a hairstyle in itself!  Now I wake up every day and my hair is ready for whatever I'm doing with no additional prepping.
