I am also a Beauty Card Club Owner so I did get this product at $63.99 price. I suggest if you love Sally's like I do, you may want to do the same. The card costs $5 and you can get discounts on the products you buy instore as well as online. Not to mention coupons. But I'm getting side tracked here,lol...
Anyway, I figured it was an investment that would pay for itself since going to the salon and getting a rod set costs usually $65 and if I'm doing it myself, I don't have to get mad when the style I paid for doesn't quite look like I had imagined it would,lol...but more on not getting what you paid for later. So on this particular Saturday in June, I actually co-washed my hair since I had done an Alma treatment the weekend prior (more on this later too).
I detangled my hair and used a light leave-in on my hair. I added a little water to my spray bottle and mixed in my Kimmaytube leave-in and then spritzed my hair. You only need a light leave-in when you are doing a set. The more products you place on your hair, the longer it takes for it to dry.
After this, I proceeded with the process of sectioning my hair into small sections, I added a little of my shea butter mix and some Eco-styler Gel to each section, then followed the package directions...
Feed the Curlformer onto the hook, with the hook facing upwards. Place the section of hair in the hook then withdraw the hook.
Sounds easy enough right, but it took some time. I started around 2 pm and didn't finish until 5:30. In between this I needed rest breaks and lunch,lol. I'm sure it will be faster as I use it again, but it's not something you can rush through that's for sure. You will need your Saturday free in order to use this product.
Well once I was finally finished, I looked like this...
And that was it! The curls stayed in my hair through Sunday to Tuesday and I did get compliments on it. More on how I extended this style when it began to poof in my next post :).
