Perfect, relaxed curls
Having long layers in my hair, it is sometimes hard to curl with wands and straighteners without looking like Crystal Tipps (google if you need to!). I really like these curling bands. More so, I love the the fact they are heated in the microwave and not poker hot and so reduce any potential heat damage. I found it tricky at first to curl my hair over the bands but, after a couple of attempts, I got the hang of it. I left the bands in for 30 minutes - unsure if that was long enough as there were no instructions in this regard inside the box. When I took the bands out, there wasn't exactly a Rapunzel moment, but I did like the effect which was a relaxed curl... perfect for sunny days to come!
