I decided to give the extra wide version a whirl. I really liked the results. I made a video.

    You have great hair. Working with the curlformers looked easier when you did it than I thought it was.

    Welcome back!!! Your hair turned out beautiful. Do you think MBL hair is too long for extra wide curlformers?

    Thanks for sharing the video. I can't wait to hear about the outcome on the second day. I've been thinking of buying the extra wide ones.

    I had no intention of buying these despite all the hype, but now, I don't think I can resist much longer...

    Great results!

    I'm mid back, stretched I used the whole curlformer. I just pulled the curlformer down a bit.

    Trenell, I loved your video! Very helpful in explaining how to use those Curlformers gizmos. Your natural un-Curlformers hair is great, and your curls looked beautiful after your demo too!

    I am now tempted to try them, but I have no idea what size/length to buy, so now I have a mini-research project to look forward to!

    I prayed for hair hang for Christmas, but Santa stiffed me AGAIN.

    Okay, now I'm just jealous of Trenell. Way to start the new year... :-|

    Your hair turned out stunning! I am officially sold on curlformers now :P What makes it even better is I find the long and wide curlformers make curls too tight for my liking (gorgeous on other women though), but the extra wide and long was perfect and there is definitely no length issues either:)

    One question, do you think the the extra wide and long curlformers will work on extremely thick 4b (4a in some parts) bearing in mind my hair straightens out very easily.

    Thanks in advance and gorgeous hair!

    Your curls turned out great with the curlformers. I think better than a roller set.
    Did your curls last a few days?
