12 DAYS OF ONDIA J GIVE-O-WAY: DAY 7
Tracee Ellis Ross is my spirit animal and I spent a good chunk of this summer trying to achieve her big fluffy fro and I think I figured it out! The best technique I found to achieve it was using my Curlformers and letting humidity do the rest. You’re probably like, “Ondia, what’s a Curlformer?” and I’ll say, “It’s my favorite tool to stretch and style my hair”. Curlformers are a heat-free mesh curler that allows you to stretch and curl your hair. Yes please! I started using them when I got heat damage about 3 years ago when I got a Dominican blow out for New Year’s Eve. Girl. That experience straightened my hair to death. I started 2014 off with irreparable damage, then breakage, then a mini chop. I even had the nerve to vlog the whole experience on my YouTube channel, you can see it here. Just like that my healthy hair was ruined and I was looking for way to blend the new growth with the damaged hair without handling it too much. The Curlformers helped with that then and continues to help me achieve awesome styles now. Any time I want stretched hair, I reach for these before my blowdryer because I can install them and go to sleep fairly comfortably and my hair is dry in the morning. I don't know how, I think it's the mesh. It’s the perfect base to any stretched style and is a complete look on its own. What’s even better is that it works on locs too! Mist your locs with water then install the roller. Sleep in them or sit under the dryer and ta-daa, curly defined locs.
I have a few company Christmas party’s I’m going to and I’m definitely going to use these Extra-Long Barrel Curlformers to get that sleek holiday glam look. Now that the summer humidity is gone I will be able to maintain the elongated curl longer and can easily transform it into another style when it gets old like a halo braid. Versatility for days!
I had to share this favorite with you because it’s a universal tool that can style, save you the heartache from direct heat damage, help with hair in transition or style locs. What's even better is that these are now sold in Target so if you ever wanted to try their spiral or corkscrew curl or even pick up the Top Up Packs for additional curlers for you collection you can. So if you're ready to try the Barrel Curls Extra Long Styling Kit yourself, follow the directions down below and good luck!
