Sleeprollers are all over twitter, mainly by the brand Sleeproller funnily enough. But since I don't fancy spending nearly £20 on some small pieces of velcro I took to my local Boots. I heard about the Boots version from the review On Jen's blog - jenniferrosellen We share a love for big hair although she is definitely the winner in that stake as my hair is normally flat as a pancake despite my efforts. I was having my usual read, spotted the rollers and bought them the same day. I have been using them nearly every day since and I think they are great.
The only thing is I don't actually wear them to sleep in as I am a very bad sleeper and every time I put them in before bed I would wake up in the middle of the night and have pulled them out and thrown them across the room!!! I even remember quite vividly doing it. They stay in your hair whilst you are sleeping really well as I really had to tug them out. I am sure if you are not quite as weird as me that you could pop these in and go to sleep and wake up with some super volume.
How I use the rollers is I rough dry my hair with the hairdryer and then around the crown of my head I put all 6 of them in and leave them in while I am doing my makeup and getting dressed or if I am going out I will leave them in for as long as possible.
They are filled with foam and are so soft compared to normal velcro rollers which means they are super comfortable and don't pull your hair or hurt yoru head or scalp. I just use these for volume and I don't get any curl when I use them, but the lift at the roots is so needed and I am in love with them, I am definitely going to get another packet so I can put my whole head of hair into the rollers for more volume.
As Jen suggests:
- Comb through a section of hair and place a roller at the end of the section.
- Curl to scalp in the direction required.
- Push gently to fix in position.
- To remove: gently lift roller and unwind.
- Comb or brush lightly to style as required.
