I don't have any pics, but my hair turned out pretty well. I had to hit it with some hairspray and curl a few parts that didn't take with the curling iron.Towards the end of the day they had become loose waves...But that was to be expected. All in all I'm pretty happy with them. They're so much more comfortable to sleep on that those stupid sponge curlers for sure! Smiley

Yeah.  The biggest problem I've had is getting all the strands of hair to dry completely.  If they don't, then I'll have pieces that won't hold a curl.  I wish I had one of those drying caps that plug into a blowdrier that they used to have back in the '60s.  I bet they would work perfectly.

Just had to chime in here and recommend that everyone try these. Grin  I have very thick heavy, slightly wavy hair and can never really get curls to stay for an extended period of time. The 'best' method I've found is to french braid my hair when it's wet, sleep and take it out in the morning, but that tends to leave it a little damp and even then half way through the day most of the curl is gone. I want to wear my hair curly for my wedding next week and my sis insisted that with a curling iron & lots of hairspray she could get it to stay. Not wanting to spend the day with ridiculously stiff hair, I was still looking for another option and I stumbled onto these curlers. After seeing everyone's results, I figured it was worth a try.

No pics to post, but I tried these out on damp hair last night and so far today they're still holding up well with only a bit of sprunch spray. They were really comfortable to sleep in too!

Thanks for posting keeperrox!

You have no idea how happy I am to find this!  I have ultra straight long hair and start a job tomorrow.  I was trying to figure out how to do my hair, besides the standards of hairbands, pony's, and pullbacks, and wasn't looking forward to getting up so early just to have curls.  Tonight I will have to get out the old standby foam rollers I had totally forgot about, but then plan to make these this week. 

Thank you all so much for posting the pics.  You made my week-- no, you helped make my new career AND sleep in a little. 

I want to do it AAAAALLLLLLL, I just don't know where to start.

I had that same problem about hair still being wet in the morning and not holding the curl. Best solution I found was to start with DRY hair. Get a spray bottle and dampen each section right before rolling. Not too wet, not too dry. It ends up completely dry in the morning and curls stay in nearly all day - even on my 10 year old daughter after a full day at school!  Complete strangers came up to me and commented on her hair.

I made these fabric curlers a few nights ago and tried them out last night. I have super straight hair that doesn't like to curl at all. I put in a little bit of product before I put in the curlers and used some hairspray when I took them out. I took them out this morning and they were a little bit curly but not as much as I wanted. After just four hours my hair was straight again.  Sad  My hair hates me! I think I'll try hair gel next time because I really do like these.
