I have a love/hate relationship with hair curlers.

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 All I could think was, "my hair has been replaced by a bunch of purple worms".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.


  1. I'm loving your blog, I wish i could just change my hair colour all the time, but my mum would kill me, as would my school ;D am now following your blog, please follow mine at

    thanks, Leah :)

  2. I know exactly what you mean :L I used to use curlers before I got my hair cut to above my shoulders, but I used velcro rollers instead of the clasic foam ones. Anytime I used them my hair looked like a bush ;P Fail.
