Hi All,

I have medium to long length hair with 3b/3c texture. I've been reading up on Curlformers and have watched various YouTube videos. The results look great, given I want a more voluptuous curl (long & wide). Before dishing out the $70, I wanted to know if any here have tried these and whether it would really work on my hair.

I've attached two pictures, so you can get a sense of my hair type. Any suggestions would be helpful!! Thanks :afro:

    You could try using those foamy flexirod things from Sallys. Roughly $8 for a pack of 10. Way cheaper than curlformers.

    I have no idea whether the curlformers would work or not as I've never used them - but I just wanted to say you have gorgeous hair!

    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    I have them. Used them a whopping ONCE and they have been collecting dust ever since.

    They work. They're just meh though. Not worth the time it takes to put them in.
