Sleep in rollers are something that have sort of passed me by, I didn't think I needed them or that they'd be that effective. But when I was asked to try the Lauren's Way Dream Rollers, I was still interested as it's a brand I've heard a lot about but never actually tried anything from. Anyway, I like sleep and I like looking good so actually these are a bit of a no brainer for me...longer in bed and bouncy hair? Yes please!
These are pink medium sized soft rollers filled with foam so that they're more comfortable when you sleep. You get 20 in a pack and on first glance I thought there was way too many but nope, I used them all in my hair! You can get packs of 8 too. Putting them in was easy, you just roll your hair around them like a normal roller and the velcro keeps them in - you can use clips to secure them even more but I didn't need to do this. They go into dry hair after it's been washed and dried (when these first came out I wasn't sure if they went in dry or wet hair, like those bendy rollers I've used disasterously twice as a kid). It probably took about 10 minutes in total to get them in my hair.
I actually popped by the Lauren's Way stand when I was at Professional Beauty North and I have to say I didn't look half as glam with these rollers in as the gorgeous models on the stand did with them in that day!
So, the sleep. I can't say sleeping with these in guarantees the best sleep I've ever had, but they're not uncomfortable and every roller did stay in at night. As someone who moves around a lot in her sleep, if they stay put for me then they'll stay put for you. Getting these out was actually harder than getting them in as the velcro's really strong. I didn't think they pulled on my hair or anything though.
I wasn't really sure what the curl from these was going to be like but I really really hoped it wasn't like ringlets. Luckily the curls were gorgeous and I loved the end result! My hair was big and bouncy with a bit of a curl at the end, just the way I like it! I suppose as your hair's dry and there's no heat styling there isn't going to be a huge ringlet going on. This is basically how I try to dry my hair or pay the hairdresser to do it, all done while I sleep.
I really would recommend these as you can style while you sleep and it reduces the amount of heated tools you use on your hair. I'm pretty sure I've already mentioned the C-word recently, but I do think these would be a great Christmas present for someone.
