I don’t know how obsessed you are with Shark Tank, but in my house, it goes beyond a guilty pleasure!
I recently purchase my FIRST Shark Tank item (usually the ones I want are way too expensive for me to justify buying something on a whim), but this was too good to pass up! Who doesn’t want to go to bed with wet hair and wake up with beachy waves?!
I’ve tried every curling iron and flat iron on the planet and can’t do it, I used to actually do hair for a living for goodness sakes!
I’m worried I made a mistake because I purchased the mini (they give you a discount if you buy both the original and the mini, I should have done that but I’m not made of money). I do think you should purchase both with the one-time discount to have the look of uneven curls, that’s just my opinion and I would have done so if I could. The only reason I’m stressing is because I now have long hair, which I haven’t had in a long time.
However, there are 12 mini’s (only 6 I think in the regular longer ones), and the mini’s are not just for short hair. They are for long hair that is fine. I wouldn’t say I have fine hair, it’s complex. Redheads have the most hair strands on the head than any other color hair. However, I would say that my individual strands are fine, it’s just that I have so many of them it seems like my hair is thick.
The large Sleep Styler is for long, thick, curly hair. I wouldn’t say I fit into that category either. My rationalization was this; for beach waves, you only want to curl mid-strand to end and therefore I wanted to have 12 curlers so I can break up my hair into smaller sections because of the density, but not so small that the curls are tight curls. I wanted more curlers so I could perfectly plan the placement of my curls.
Here are the mini’s:
They come with a fantastic step-by-step booklet for help with novices.
You get care and maintenance – yes you can clean/wash them!- and also styling tips! (They’re Velcro so….easy peasy lemon squeezey……I hope!) 🤞🏻
This book is really helpful in exactly how to use the product and get the look you want! plus, there are QR codes and even MORE tips with videos!
If these work and I get to save an hour to an hour and a half of styling/getting ready time in the morning, I WILL be purchasing the ones for long hair. I think having both sizes makes it look more natural and also, for those of us with layered hair, it will come in handy!
Come back tomorrow to see the results of tonight’s Sleep Styler experiment with pictures and keep your fingers crossed that things go well because I also have a job interview!
