(This is a picture people usually see and then ask me how I curl my hair)
In real life and online, I’ve had a number of people ask me in the last couple of weeks what I curl my hair with. It’s funny because a lot of people are under the assumption I put a lot of effort into my hair (haha). The thing is, I really don’t. I have to leave my house at 7am, so I don’t have the time to mess about curling my hair with straighteners. I have used the same rollers for about 7 years. My Mum gets me a new set every couple of years (to be honest they would last longer if I cleaned them and wasn’t lazy). As you can imagine, leaving the house as early as I do, ANYTHING that is going to make life quicker for me is very much welcome.
How to Babyliss heated rollers work?
(Picture taken from Amazon)
The Babyliss heated rollers come in a little dock. The plastic rollers sit in the dock and get heated up. One of the things I like so much about these rollers is that they do not get too hot, and there is very little risk of them burning your hand whilst you are curling your hair. As you might remember from my recent post about having my toe sewn back on in Greece, I am really clumsy so this is a huge benefit for me. I’ve been reading up and I found more than one other Babyliss heated roller review where the writer thought this was one of the best things as well.
How do you use the Babyliss thermo-ceramic rollers?
The rollers are very easy to use. I tend to put the rollers in while I do my make up and take them out when I have finished. You switch them on and give them around 5 minutes to heat up. One of the rollers has an indicator in it which will tell you when the rollers have finished heating. The rollers come in three different sizes. You can either use all three for different colour curls (which is what I do), or separate your hair into layers and use the same size roller. You get both pins and clips, personally I prefer using the pins. The good thing about having had three of these is that I keep the pins each time. You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to lose metal pins.
How long do the curls stay in when you use Babyliss rollers?
My hair is naturally really straight. The only thing I have ever found that works to curl my hair is GHD’s and as I mentioned before, I certainly haven’t got time to curl my hair with straighteners every day. But the curls with Babyliss rollers last pretty much all day, unless there has been some form of horrendous weather condition like strong winds or torrential rain. One of the reasons I recommend them so highly is because I never really find products that let the curls stay in.
