One of life’s biggest mysteries along with why all bad food tastes amazing is how some people have amazing hair every day. I mean, how do they do it?! For me, especially on work mornings, getting my hair right is something that usually happens by accident. Needless to say, I’ve been looking for the lazy man solution to everyday great hair with little/no effort since I started the daily grind.
Being a regular reader of the Daily Mail showbiz section (don’t judge me, we all have guilty pleasures), I couldn’t help but notice that all my favourite celebs were wearing the same set of hair rollers…and seemed to have amazing hair after removing them.
I did a bit of digging and discovered that they were all wearing Velcro Sleep Rollers a brand of rollers made from soft Velcro and inner tubes of sponge designed to be the lazy girl answer to fabulous hair.
Before purchasing, I did a bit of googling to discover that nobody had written a half decent blog. So I took the plunge and a purchased a set without much of a write up. Hopefully if you’re reading this blog, my explanation of how to use the rollers and how they feel will help you a lot more than the write ups I found!
The rollers arrived in a coordinating pink bag with an easy to understand, comprehensive guide on how to put the rollers in. As a seasoned roller user, I was fully aware of how to put my rollers in and it took me about 20 minutes to do a full head. I experimented with both wet and dry hair and I would suggest drying your hair first to avoid damage from stretching the hair strands.
Being able to get a good night sleep in the rollers is the USP and I suspect the reasoning behind the price. I will be completely honest and say it wasn’t the best night’s sleep and neither was it the worst. I worked out that by resting on my hand in a ‘Disney Princess having a nap’ sort of way; I was able to have a perfectly good night’s sleep. I also wrapped my head in a massive granny scarf to avoid losing any rollers in my sleep. FYI: The brand recommends pinning the rollers in, but if you get a tight roll you won’t need to do this.
I woke up in the morning feeling refreshed and excited and it took me approximately 6 minutes to remove all the rollers and lightly brush my hair. I then sprayed my hair and it held in and looked fantastic all day. I also received lots of compliments from different members of the team (some who knew I’d had my rollers in, some who didn’t) and I can honestly say I felt a lot prettier and more confident with a nice head of hair.
In short, to sum up the rollers:
Packaging and presentation: 10/10
Ease of use: 8/10 (a bit of practise goes a long way)
I would honestly recommend these to anyone and if you’re looking for body and a light curl, these will do wonders. PS. If you’ve ever slept in rollers, I can assure you these are a whole different experience.
