Being a hairdresser, I have used many products on my hair and tested them for friends and myself and this one is great! I don't think that many people now that curlers are NOT supposed to give you a great curl...but body with a slight wave. Basically, if you want to have the quintessential "Victoria Secret" model hair, this is something you need. A tip: Start with the top of your head and make a mock mohawk from the front of your head to the crown (were you would normally place a ponytail) and pin up with a clip-then pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail so it doesn't get into the rest of your hair. then let the mohawk part down and separate into sections. starting at the front of your head and moving back make medium sections you should only have to use 3 or 4 curlers for this section. start in the middle of the hair shaft, that way you don't look like your front the 80's and curl the bottom of your hair UP into the curler. then roll the rest of your hair up to your head and secure with the clips (included). Continue until done with the mohawk part and then start on the sides of your head, with medium sections as well. After finishing you head, you should have what people call "The George Washington" look! If you have thick or very long hair, you may need more than the 12 curlers included so try it with this one and you might have to buy one with more curlers (Conair Instant Heat Multi-Sized Hot Rollers with Heated Clips-have 20 and they work just as great!) Once you finish your entire head, then you MUST LET THEM COOL!! So do your makeup, get dressed or sit and watch the news for about 10 to 20 minutes, until you ENTIRE head is cool to the touch, it may take longer. I would suggest to do a trail run on a night were you don't have anything going on, that way if it doesn't come out to your liking you are not running around or pulling it up into a ponytail for work or a date. Once cool start at the TOP of your head, just the way you started and continue down your head, whatever way you put them in, you should take them out. Turn your head over, and spray some hair spray, use a flexible hold though, so your hair is not stiff, and turn over. Fluff a little with your fingers and your done. REMEMBER, this will only give body and a slight curl, so don't be disappointed if you didn't get a great curl, truthfully, if you would like a great curl, use a curling iron.
