Strawberry Sleep-In Rollers for £1.99!

There seems to be a more and more sleep-in foam rollers around, all promising slightly different things and as the customer I find it so hard to know what the actual results are of these foam rollers. So I decided to try some out for myself, after looking around the general price seemed to be about £12, which for me is quite expensive for what is essentially a bit of foam.

BUT then I stumbled across a Hong Kong seller on eBay called 'dtwell7', they were selling the strawberry shaped foam rollers for £1.99 with FREE delivery! I couldn't believe it and I thought 'if a deal is too good to be true, it usually is', but this one proved me wrong! I was precautious about ordering them, as I have never trusted international sellers on eBay before after a bad experience, but as they were only £1.99 I risked it. They say delivery to the UK will take up to 2 weeks, my order in exactly 10 days, which from Hong Kong isn't bad at all! To find this product on eBay search '12pcs Strawberry Hair Care Foam Soft Round Sponge Balls Curlers Rollers Bun Tool' and the seller is 'dtwell7'.

On to trying them out, are they as good as they are reported to be?

I washed my hair and then it dry until it about 80% dry, this means that when you put the rollers in your hair will completely dry creating a more defined curl. I put in all 12 rollers but really could have done with ordering another 12, therefore giving me 24 rollers to work with. I had to split my hair into quite big 'chunks' before twisting them around each roller, this meant they easily unrolled themselves. This wasn't a problem with the roller that had less hair in, so if I had more it wouldn't have been an issue.

Firstly, I put up half of my hair and then split the bottom section in half (one on either side of my head, as shown in the picture below). Split each half into 3 sections, took a strawberry roller placed it underneath 1 section of hair, pushed it up, so that the hair was 'in' the roller. Then rolled it up to as near to my roots as it would go. It was a very easy process!

I repeated this across the rest of my hair and this is what they looked like all in:

As they are foam you can sleep in them, I tried lying down with them in and it wasn't the most comfortable thing, but if your more dedicated to having curls than me, then it is manageable. I left in the rollers for around 4 hours and this is the result...

  5. Ohhh I want to try these! I've used bendy rollers, and twisted and pinned my hair before but these look like they create a different sort of curl!! X

  6. I actually just bought 24 of these for $6(canadian) off of ebay, which is awesome because I wasn't going to spend $6 for 4 pieces like some stores were selling them. If you find your hair keeps slipping, tossing a hair elastic loosing over the stubborn ones will keep it in place.
