I remember when I was about 4 (yes I do! Gosh, why does everyone find this so hard to believe?), and every now and then my mommy dearest would put my hair in little rag curlers Saturday night so I would have curls Sunday. I looked adorable. There are some people that you can blackmail with their baby pictures, I am not one of them. I am the type of person who will happily bring out a photo album of photos of me when I was a baby and start showing everyone. Come to think of it, I think I have done that... anyways. Back to the original subject. For Christmas I got hair curlers, and I have been using them, 'cause I really like curls and having my hair curly, but unfortunately, my hair is naturally poker straight and ultra fine. So if I use a hot iron my hair is like, poof! (Unless I use a lot of hair spray.) So curlers work a lot better for me. Most curlers are really uncomfortable to sleep in, though. I mean, the classic hair curler is a little sponge-thing with a plastic stick stuck through it. Of course it's going to be uncomfortable! And the plastic is always really hard to click into place. But the ones I got are super easy to use- you just take a little bit of hair, wrap it around the curler, and then bend the wires to hold it in place. It looks and feels like you have a bunch of marshmallows in your hair. Except these are a lot easier to get out (note to self: do not annoy little brother while he has a roasted marshmallow on a long stick,). First time I used the curlers my hair looked like a poodle. From the 80s. It was really something else. Second time I used them, I looked like Shirley Temple. Not exactly what I was expecting. Third time I used them, they didn't curl. I took them out and my hair was still straight. That was really not what I had expected. (Although it may have been because I dyed my hair light purple the night before, so it may have been weighed down by all the conditioner.). And about half a hour ago I took the curlers out of my hair. All I could think was, "my hair has been replaced by a bunch of purple worms". It seriously looked like that. Curlers are such deceiving things. If you have any stories about hair curlers, don't keep them to yourself, please share.
