To create tight curls: leave curlers in the hair for 3 to 4 hours or overnight. You can slightly moisten ends, or use your favorite product or our Spoolies Beach Waves & Curls Leave-in Curl Enhancer on our hair.
For a full head of curls: apply flat end of curlers close to scalp and leave curlers in from 10 minutes to several hours depending on how tight you want the curls.
For soft waves or loose curls with a smooth crown: Use Spoolies on clean, dry hair and wind spools starting mid-strand (for long hair). A blow dryer can be used to warm each curler to activate curls more quickly. Apply our Spoolies Curl Enhancer on wet or dry hair, and your favorite hair spray will help the curls stay in all day.
For naturally curly or wavy hair: apply curlers close to the scalp right after washing and drying hair to produce smooth uniform curls with no frizzies.
For curls-on-the-go: Massage our Spoolies Curl Enhancer to the ends before curling and air dry for 10 to 30 minutes or apply heat if desired.
Remember: The longer the curlers remain in the hair, the tighter the curl!
When removing the curlers: Please remove carefully to avoid tangling. Unwind the opposite way the hair was wound and use your fingers to separate the curls. For more volume, comb through each curl and style. For less volume, curls can be relaxed by using a blow dryer to soften the curls. If curlers are applied to freshly washed hair that is "just" dry, or slightly moist, and stay in the hair overnight, then the curls will be tight and can usually last more than one day.
We think you will adore the endless hair styles you can achieve, AND enjoy the compliments you'll receive for your beautiful bouncy curls!
Note: Our Original Spoolies® Hair Curlers are 1 3/8" and considered small by today's standards, but our new Jumbo curlers hold twice as much hair.
