Review: Sleep In Rollers

Wednesday, May 07, 2014
I have wanted to try sleep in rollers are a while and I have tried the Primark versions which are around £2 which I didn't like as they didn't stick in my hair. I was kindly sent the original sleep in rollers by Beau Boutique, however my opinions are my own, to read my disclaimer, click here.  
No photos of the effects sadly as I am full of a cold and hay fever - I will update this post when I have shorter hair
I have the *Velcro Sleep In Rollers Set (£10, sale - RRP £16.50) which includes two sets of the sleep in roller so you have 20 rollers in total. Also they came in a cute pink bag which I will definitely re-use. I'm not sure what size these are but they are fairly big - I'm going to get my hair cut into a bob shortly so I might have to buy the ones for shorter hair. 

Now, the first time I tried these rollers, it wasn't a success, if I'm honest - the rollers were fairly quick and easy to put in and they did stay in my dry hair well, especially when compared to the Primark versions. Although it was a bit downhill from there - the rollers were not super comfortable to sleep on, they all moved around my face and I couldn't sleep on my side. I had to take them out my hair at about 2am which was a bit annoying! However, I tried another day when my hair was slightly damp in the morning (I usually sleep with my hair wet) and it was so much easier! I know they are 'sleep in rollers' but sadly I just can't sleep with them in, I am sure most people would be able too but I do have trouble sleeping sometimes. 

If like me you can't sleep with them in then use them in the morning when you are applying your makeup and getting ready - it works well, especially when you spray a small amount of water onto the hair as when the water slowly evaporates it seems to lock in the volume and wave that the rollers provide. Also blasting your hair with a hairdryer while the rollers are in then letting your hair cool completely will also help the volume and wave lock into the hair. Tip: Make sure the hair is brushed well first and sectioning the hair makes the processes quicker, easier and neater. 

Overall, I love the packaging and the cute bag, the rollers are quick and easy to put in and they stay in well. They give good volume and a nice relaxed wave to the hair because the rollers are quite big; they work well when used during the day on dry or very slightly damp hair. However, I personally cannot sleep with them in - I will try again when I have shorter hair (as mine is really quite long again now). I would recommend them at the sale price they are now, ★★★☆, 4/5.

  6. I've seen these things around and have similar ones at home. They're good but the curls never last long on my hair unfortunately

  12. I love a bitta volume in my hair! Used to use hot rollers a lot, but what I've been doing recently is giving myself a curly blowdry using my round brushes when I'm blowdrying my hair! I find it gives a great finish and it lasts much longer... well on me anyway! haha.
