I purchased Vidal Sassoon Large Foam Rollers from Amazon for a little under $4. I bought two packages because I wasn't sure how many my hair would take.
I set my hair with two on top and then about 3-4 on each side. Make sure to keep them rolled away from your face.
I put these in after washing my hair when my hair was about 90% dry. I prepped my damp hair with volumizing mousse at the roots and curling mousse from my ears down. These were actually comfy to sleep in. I sleep on my back or my belly and both positions were very comfortable with these in. I'm just glad I sleep alone, because I definitely look like a Grandma with these in!
Oodles and oodles of curls!!
I should have taken a picture after my hair fell a bit, because it looks a bit crazy here! The curls are gorgeous and voluminous and very natural looking. I got compliments on this all day and my co-worker even asked me to do her hair! After trying this and seeing it's success I definitely want to order the jumbo foam rollers to see if I can get results similar to Mara's.
So now that I'm content with my heat-free curl method I want to find the perfect heat free beachy waves technique. Any recommendations?
