I've been wondering if it'll work on shorter hair. But I think the back would end up mostly straight with a weird kink at the bottom...

Or just a flick.

Maybe we need to bring back the 60s/DeeLite/Lady Miss Keir flick!





If so I totally have to do this! I love the 60's flick!
I don't care if it's true

What about sleep in rollers?

Sleep in rollers are mostly really any good if you want the retro 50's, 60s look, not loose big curls.

Theyre good on long hair for boomf and curls at the end, I suppose it depends which size you use! The pink glitter ones theyve done are well jazzy!

Oooh ok, I'm thinking of something different. I've not seen those before and they're way bigger than the kind I know as sleep in rollers. I didn't know someone had actually branded something Sleep in Rollers!

Ahhhhh I think I know the ones you mean, they have a bar over them to clip in place? Haha I know! And because theyve marketed them well I obviously want a set...I'm such a sucker.

Yeah, that's them! I've never been able to use them, don't know if I sleep too long without moving or if it's because my hair adheres too much to the shape it's put in, but I end up with zig zags rather than curls from where they've gone flat.

It's not even a line, it's like full on, zig zag hair. With bends and not curls! And normally more on one side than the other. I can only sleep in solid curlers... bloody hurts too lol

I love curly hair but mine is hopelessly straight. When I was younger I tried my mother's rollers and curling irons with awful results, but what really works for me are those soft foam, bendy rollers. That's the only way for me to get curls, and I've found pretty long and large ones too so I can wrap up my long hair better and I can get a more natural-looking result as well. I usually put them on damp hair and sleep in them, they are a little uncomfortable at the beginning but I got used to it.

I've seen many tutorials of people twisting hair on their fingers, making little buns of it and pin them at the head before sleeping. They get something between waves and curls but I guess it works only on mid-length hair...I can't even twist and make a decent bun out of mineXD

I really want to try the sleep in rollers that that daft woman from TOWIE brought out - they're squashy so you can sleep in them http://www.laurensway.com/hair/dream-rollers-pack-of-20-free-carry-case/

Sadly my hair doesn't hold curl either so I don't think they're worth forking out for :(

they look interesting, but I guess I would have the same problem - I never managed to get curls with rollers. I'm afraid my hair is too long for them

I've discovered quite by accident that if you sleep with a snood on freshly washed hair that you will end up with loose curls/waves, plus it also seems to be the only thing that can tame my frizz without the use of product.

zomg... I can't imagine having all those tampons in my hair, but I can see where it would work (and sure did for her!).  I wonder if I could get my daughter to let me try it on her...  :laugh:

Yeah, I can see it working. The cotton would absorb damp for a start. Still, it's not really a cheap way. They wouldn't last more than a few times, if that. Cotton wool would be better!

Haha that video was cool.

So I tried the sock method last night, and it turned out pretty cute, but oh my god, they are hell to sleep on! I have trouble enough falling asleep as it is, not sure I wanna put myself through this again! ;)

I just may give the tampons method a go some time soon.

You are talking about bantu knots!  I've tried those with some success. It looked like my hair should be on the cover of a bodice ripper at first then calmed down to a more respectable look.

My hair is too long for the head band trick and I still can't figure out how to do it in a sock bun. 

The tampon video is hilarious!

I used to do that back in the mid 90s to wear out all the time. :)

I did this the other day and it worked great, but I imagen if you don't make sure each section is nice and neat it could be a mess. I made a make shift wrap that was more rounded , it still came out more zig zag than curls but it was great and so easy for a "got no time to do hair"person like me. id deff try get some kind of round foam tube ( like them long things kids play with in pools, but thinned out ) and do some diy on it to make a attached circle this way the curls would be round, but im well impressed , will be doing this again for sure...x thanks so much for the vid xxxx

I want to try this, but I wonder what it's like taking off the headband in the morning.  I've tried the bendy curlers, and my hair knots up a bit in those.

Is it easy to get the hair out of the headband without pulling or knotting?  I hoped she'd include that part in the video!
