How I used this product:
- Washed, deep conditioned and lightly blow dried to about 95% dry (I was tired, so I didn't blowdry completely)
- Using the 8 sections I wash in, I split each section into 2 sections, and applied a Curlformer for a total of 16 Curlformers used. I alternate the colors, so the curls weren't going in the same direction.
Having the Curlformers on the ends of my hair, also allowed me to pin up my hair so I could sleep comfortably.

The Curlformers were very easy to use and I was able to apply all 16 in about 30 minutes. Since my hair was only lightly blow dried, the thickness of my hair posed a challenge to pull through the roller. I can definitely see how not taking your time can cause damage and leave you with broken pieces. I had minimal breakage which would easily be avoided if my hair was flat ironed or blow dried straighter. I certainly would not be able to use the smaller width on lightly blow dried hair, because the opening is smaller, and would cause damage when I pull my thick hair through. So I plan to use the Long and Wide on flat ironed hair only.
I really liked the Curlformers and I'm looking forward to using them on flat ironed hair. The curls didn't last very long (maybe a couple hours), but I think that's because I lightly blow dried. My hair tends to hold curls better when I use higher heat. So after I flat iron, my hair is more receptive to holding curls without using additional heat.
