I have extremely thin and straight hair, and I've never been able to hold a curl for more than a couple hours in my life. My expectations for Hot Sticks weren't exactly grand going in, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The Good:
After a little practice, my curls came out perfectly, and (to my intense surprise) lasted from around 8am until I brushed them out around 11pm. The curlers themselves stayed put while setting, and were relatively easy to get out. The Bad:
I said 'a little' practice. More like 4 tries, a set of mini-clips, and my husband's assistance. The biggest problem I had was getting the tips of my hair around the curler, and making them stay there. I wound up buying some claw-type clips and securing the ends in place before rolling. What made this process more difficult is just how hot these rollers get. The ends are comfortably warm, but holding on to anywhere close to the middle for too long will blister. Make sure you don't roll any that will hang too close to your ears! Overall:
With a little practice and caution, you get great results. If you're willing to work with them a bit, they'll definitely pay off. Maybe next time I use them, I won't need my husband's help...
