Strawberry waves x

Howdy sugar pops

A couple of weeks ago I discovered Strawberry Waves on Twitter, they are soft hair rollers which you can sleep in and wake up with beautiful curly locks. They look like big sponge strawberry's, damage free and no heat is required so are safe for children to use. Depending on how small a curl you want you can just wind the hair round tighter or looser, so it can create so many different looks. I love having curly hair so thought I would give them a try, I started off with a pack of 6 to see how it goes and they were only £5.99 (Plus £3 P+P).


Strawberry Waves!

 You might think its silly me only trying 6 and not having them all over but I've got quite naturally wavy curly hair anyways. My natural waves are very messy and big but if I add some neat curls to it, they blend in and it looks curly all over. 


Sorry I look so rough 
Chilling with my strawbs 
One night I showered, blow dried my hair till it was about 80% dry, then added the rollers and slept the whole night. The next night I didn't wash my hair so it was completely dry and still curly, I grabbed random sections and sprayed them with heat defense spray so it was slightly damp, added the rollers again and slept in them. Both mornings I brush out the curls as I like them to look natural.

In my opinion I got better curls from using them on dry hair which was made damp with spray. I think that my hair was too clean after I washed it and they work better on the next day after washing, the hair takes the curls better and they become a lot more bouncy. If you do use them after washing your hair and your not sure how much you should blow dry your hair, just remember it is better for the hair to be too dry than too wet. If your hair is too wet then it won't curl at all because it won't dry in the roller.

Beautiful big bouncy curls
They are the definitely the best sleep in rollers I've tried, I wore them all night and still got a great nights sleep. I have tried other sleep in rollers but found them very uncomfortable and couldn't sleep at all. I am a very light sleeper and need at least 8 hours otherwise I can't function, so I hate wearing rollers if they are likely to keep me awake. 
I also found that with other rollers they wouldn't stay in and I would need to use clips, which defeats the object of 'sleep in' rollers. Strawberry Waves are a special shape so you wind your hair round the middle and the outside bit of the strawberry hangs over to keep the hair in place. It's hard to explain but they don't fall out and you don't need clips or grips.


What do you think of my curls?
Also you don't have to sleep in them. I haven't tried this yet but like most rollers you can blow dry your hair 3/4 of the way, put the rollers in and then carry on blow drying until it's completely dry. If you leave them in to set for an hour or so after blow drying then this will also create gorgeous curls.

I really do recommend this product, this review is 100% my honest opinion they were so comfortable and I didn't even know I had them in. Try them for yourself if you don't believe me.

    1. Thanks hun. I have them in so they create quite loose curls but you can create tighter ones too.

      Yh I agree, its not good to use too much heat in this weather and especially as I am going blonder my hair is getting drier, so these are a fantastic alternative.
