I wanted to take some time to show you the results of my first set of curl formers. You can get the "real" curl formers from Sally's for $69, however, I purchased my knockoffs from Amazon.com for $16.99. In the near future, I'll be posting a video on my channel (JustMeand4C) showing you my initial reaction and results. I'm going to follow that with a second video showing how I apply the formers and the products I used.
There are some things that I want to work on for my next go in using curl formers.
1. While I did detangle my hair, I'm going to comb out my coily ends (very gently) using a small tooth comb. My ends looked like flattened coils as my hair didn't straighten out all the way.
2. I need a very strong hold product that I can put in my hair and will not flake. By the end of the day (actually within 6 hours) my hair was puffing out of the curls. The style still looked lovely, however, the fluff and stuff meant that I couldn't wear it beyond the first day.
I'll also be doing a review of the knock off curl formers that I purchased. Stay tuned for that.

|Clearly, I'm one happy chica!|

|This was my hair the week before (using kinky curly curling custard and knot today). I wanted you to see what my hair texture looks like. The curl formers definitely worked.|
