Product Review: Curlformers CorkScrew

Curlformers Review, 4 years on.

The last time I Used Curlformers I was on my transitioning journey, and I loved creating Victorian steam punk styles with them.

Now completely natural, I decided to take the plunge again this time with corkscrew curls

So how do the Curlformers work?

Curlformers Review

What Curlformers Say:
Perfect for all ages and all hair types, wigs and weaves. Best of all, Curlformers will never cause heat damage—we guarantee it. Packed in our luxury, dark silver, satin vanity bag, take Curlformers anywhere to create salon quality curls-on-the-go. Each kit includes 40 Long and Narrow Curlformers: in 2 new exciting colours: 20 dark blue for clockwise curls and 20 dark blue with a gold strip for anti-clockwise curls.

What did I think?
I am still very much in love with these for heatless curling. I absolutely loved the new packaging, with luxury vanity bag. The instructions are very easy to use and the Coconut Oil and Honey provided for a conditioning treatment left my hair feeling smooth and tangle free. So I'm not that great at styling my own hair, so Joliette is going to hook me up next week and I'll update this post with styled pics. 

I would recommend using a gel or styling product, like the Joliette Curl Me Soft, to give a glossy sheen to the curls.

As I didn't style my hair this time round, I will concentrate on the quick styling options this gave me. Usually an up do requires a whole lot of brushing and gelling but after using the Curlformers and Soft hood, my hair was easy to come and brush together. So thumbs up for easy stretching option too. I possibly put them in a bit too tight so my scalp was a bit tender after wards but all in all, love 'em!

I did this as Niki's second pair of hands (Check Out her Review) and got some great images and also figured out that you need to stretch out the Curlformer the squeeze the neck. Curlformer comes off super easy and no pain!

The Soft Hood 
What Curlformers Say:
The Deluxe SoftHood hair dryer attachment is a fast and easy way to dry your hair when using Curlformers. Best of all, it will never cause heat damage—we guarantee it. Our patented, design features for optimum performance include larger hood capacity and maximum ventilation for faster and even heat distribution and It’s easy to use with an adjustable chin strap and drawstring. The SoftHood can even be used to process a conditioning treatment. Just apply to damp hair, cover with treatment cap, and place the SoftHood over the top. Switch on the dryer to a comfortable setting and leave according to manufacturer’s instructions before rinsing and styling. It’s that simple!

What I thought?
This is a great addition to any natural girls arsenal. Now I have used similar types of dryers before, but what I loved about this one was the size. It is huge and the adjustable chin strap drawstring means that you can pull it to whatever size you want and for us, kinky curly girls this is a GodSend. Truing to fit all your hair under one of these hoods can be tricky at times and the large standing hair dryers you can buy are expensive.
I used a cooler setting on my dryer and my hair was set in about 30ish minutes
So I would give the soft hood top marks.
