If you have been following my Instagram stories, you probably already know how much I have been using The Sleep Styler. It took sooo long for it to come in, because the demand was high and production was slow. So while I was waiting, I created this DUPE video where I achieved the look I wanted from The Sleep Styler with kitchen dish sponges.
Meantime, I finally got both the Original and Mini Sleep Styler products in, and I have been sleeping in them nightly with no problems. I love the way they curl my hair, and I use both of them – the Original on the lower half of my hair, and the Mini on the top half with bobby pins pushed underneath so they don’t flop over.
If you use them, I do recommend putting some form of hairstyling product in your hair and blow-drying the roots. You don’t have to fully dry your hair, I leave dampness in it, but I noticed that when I didn’t use product or a blowdryer, that my hair was limp and tended to get greasy at the root.
This is the look I have in my profile photo! It was my job’s fundraising gala, a black tie event, so I went all-out with hair and makeup.
