Sleep in Rollers Review!

Hey lovelies, hope everyone’s well? I got these rollers as a birthday present from my brother in January but haven’t posted about them until now because I wanted to get a better after picture of my hair. I’ve only ever used these properly (full head) twice as they are a bit time consuming, but I use 2 or 4 every time I'm going for a night out just to curl the front of my hair. I do find these pretty pink things come in useful; I put them in a few hours before going out to get added volume and curl. I've decided to do a REVIEW of these SLEEP-IN ROLLERS for any of you thinking of purchasing :)
SLEEP_IN_ROLLERS
SLEEP ROLLERS IN! This picture was before bed.
This was the result the next MORNING! Still pretty perfect after a nights sleep, right?
SLEEP_IN_ROLLERS_RESULTS
The final result, all curled up with added volume!
Final result from Sleep in Rollers!!!

  • Section your hair into three parts, equal side sections and then one section through the centre
  • Begin with the middle section, I start with the front and take about a 2cm width section and begin to curl around the roller from the end upwards to the root, there’s then a gap between the roller and cover/velcro to slot in your grip/clip.
  • Continue this for the whole front section going from front to back, each 2/3 cm width around the roller- you should get about 4 rollers filling this part
  • Then do the exact same with both side parted sections from top to bottom of the parted sections, and again for the back of the hair, this bit can get a bit difficult so usually I just curl the back with curlers
  • Leave curlers in overnight, or throughout the day (minimum of 4 hours I’d say)
  • Remove grips and rollers starting from the bottom/underneath of the head working your way upwards- when removing twist curl around your finger to fall into place, add some hairspray!!
Pro's
+ These curlers give you loads of volume in your hair, if you’re someone who finds it hard to add volume to flat hair then these would be great for you
+ Curls stay in place for longer
+ After wearing these in bed and tossing and turning they stay in perfect place, they practically look as neat when you wake up as they do when you put them; I was very surprised!
+ Kirby grips/clips slide in perfectly between the rollers to hold your hair firmly in place around the roller
+ These Velcro rollers are soft and squidgy which helps with comfort
+ Sleep in Rollers offer free delivery when you spend £17.95 (I love free delivery)

Con's
- These can be a bit of a nightmare to sleep in, however since as long as I can remember my sister has always told me pain is beauty- definitely in this case. I didn’t find it unbearable to sleep with these in (like some reviews I’ve read have said) but I did wake a few times in the night with discomfort but fell back to sleep straight away
- My neck was a bit achy in the morning, but noting I couldn’t handle. Pain is beauty!!
- These are quite pricey, I think you can pick up similar curlers from somewhere like boots for a cheaper price

Top Tips
  • Add a bit of mousse to your hair before hand; this keep curls in place longer
  • Hairspray rolled hair while rollers are still in to keep shape stronger
  • Roll the rollers from end to root of hair tightly
  • If you want curled hair for a night out I would advise putting these in early in the morning, then letting them set throughout the day rather than sleeping with them in
  • If you do sleep with them in, position a pillow under your neck to fill the gap where there aren’t any curlers otherwise it’s like your neck hasn’t got anything to rest on (if that makes sense)
  • Go over any messy/wavy curls with hot hair curlers after you’ve taken your rollers out
  • Use a good strong hairspray on finished curls!!!

"GOODBYE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, HELLO GREAT HAIR!!!"

  2. I hateeee sleeping in rollers, it's so uncomfortable. I roller set my wet hair and dry it weekly. This looks awesome to preserve styles!
