Features

  • Any Hair

    These curlers are great for any type of hair and any hair length.

  • Safe

    They are easy to use and don't cause harm to your hair like a traditional curling iron might.

  • Comfortable

    They are soft and much more comfortable compared to other foam curlers.

Pros

  • All Lengths

    With the flex a curl heat less curling system it's easy for you to curl any length of hair including short hair, long hair, or anything in between.

  • Sleep in Them

    They are soft and comfortable so sleeping on them overnight is not an issue. However if you do want to get your girls faster you can use a blow dryer.

Cons

  • No Variety

    One of the only downsides to this particular curling kit is the fact that you have no control over the tightness of the curl. No control exists over the tightness of the curls because it uses one size for the flexible curling band. This also means that your particular hair and how you toss and turn while you sleep will impact the tightness of the curls.

  • Might Not Hold Well

    For people who have thinner hair, there are often issues of straight thin hair not holding a curl. If your hair naturally will not hold any type of curl, even for a few hours, do not think this will magically help you. Unfortunately that is the way some hair is, and all the curlers on the market will not rectify that situation.

Issues

  • Cleaning

    One of the issues of course is how to get them clean. This is something that is not discussed on the website although it stands to reason that if you can use them on wet hair. Additionally, they are perfectly suitable for heat exposure then you could in theory wash them by hand and set them out to dry. It doesn't appear as though washing them by hand will harm the flexible nature of the curlers nor will it impact the efficiency.

How It Works

Heatless curling systems are all the rage now because they are a natural way to curly hair. Traditionally women would do something to hold her hair in a curled position while they slept. This was of course before the onset of heat based curling units. That same concept is what is behind these. Curling the hair around something and holding it in that curled position overnight until the hairdryer is what helps you to get the shape you want.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Grab Wand

    Much the same as many similar products you have a handful of different tube like flexible bands. Said tube like flexible bands are the curlers in question. With them you also get the special twirling wand which kind of looks like something you would use to blow bubbles. At one end you will find a small hole.

  2. Divide Hair

    You want to take small sections of your hair enough to sit through this whole and divide your hair thusly.

  3. Run Curler Through Wand

    Run the twirling wand through the middle of the flexible curling tube. You want to position it so that the tip with the small circle is located nearest to the top of your head pointing upward.

  4. Pull

    Once that is done slide a section of your hair through the circle and down through the flexible tube. Pull down the wand to slide the hair through the tube and to release the curling band.

  5. Release

    Once this is done the band will sort of slingshot up in a twisted fashion creating a curl. It will sit in place around your hair while you sleep or while you blow-dry it. Be cognizant of the fact that if it does move around a bit or fall ever so slightly it will impact where the curls starts.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Starting Points

    If you want curls but you don't necessarily want them right at your scalp you can choose to run the flexible wand all the way using the exact same steps above. However then push the curling band down so that it isn't directly flush with your scalp.

  2. Hold in Place

    While it is not necessary to use any harsh chemicals if you do choose to retain the girls for a longer period of time it is in your best interest to use something like hairspray. This will hold the curls in place. If you want to do this there are two ways you can do it.

    First is to spray your hair with something like hairspray or another adhesive before you put it in the curl so that has all night to dry with the adhesive. Second you can choose to simply spray it after you release it from the curlers the next day.

Alternatives

  • Curl Formers

    Curl formers is the main alternative. You can use the long spiral curls pack for longer hair and create different sicknesses for the spiral curls. They also have patented designs for corkscrew curls for shorthair. Other options include the extra-long spiral curls or the shorthair spiral curls, the long barrel curls, the super long spiral curls, among others. This particular company is one of the first to produce the heatless curling systems.

    For these curlers you purchase the wand first and separately, after which you purchase the different curlers that you want based on the type of curl, wave, volume, and length of your hair. Each kit is designed to work well on normal hair, damaged hair, hair extensions, or wigs. In fact, this company has received the naturally curly editor’s choice award for the best retexturising tool on the market.

  • Twist Flex Hair Curlers

    Twist flex hair curlers offers a pack of 42 different thicknesses for natural, heatless curls. These are all curling bands that are available in seven bright colors and seven different sizes so that you can create thick curls, small curls, waves, and anything in between. All you have to do is bend the curling rod, twist your hair around it, roll it up to the point that you want your curls to start, and twisted in place.

I Recommend Buying it!

Love These!

Love that I can curl my hair without the heat - and if you put them just on the ends of the hair they create really cute "beachy" waves. Really easy to use I can do my entire head in about 15 mins and if I'm in a hurry just give them a quick shot with a blow dryer. Would definitely recommend.
