Strawberries in my hair

So when I said "strawberries" I didn't mean actual real strawberries to use in my hair...
I'm referring to the foam no-heat strawberry shaped curlers. I've always wanted to do something (soft curls) with my hair. Having straight black hair even a curling iron with tons of hair spray won't do. For example, I would use a Revlon curling iron, but I would only end up with dry damaged hair and only small crimps to show for it. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled on these marvelous cute no heat curlers at e-bay. My first thoughts were it would be a waste of money and be just an addition to the non-working junk pile. Clearly, I was wrong. I mean if it didn't work then why would I even blog about it?

There are two ways that these curlers can be used:  when you go to bed (use it after taking a shower. Hair must be 90% dry to work) or for super fast curling just use a hairdryer for 10-15 minutes (beats the no-heat purpose). I honestly don't prefer to do either. This is because I slept with my strawberry curlers on and I just find it uncomfortable.  I wasn't use to having stuff in my hair. So what I like to do is to just wear these cuties for 3-4 hours and tada! Gorgeous shiny curly non-damaged hair!

Excuse my super excited no make-up look...

The picture doesn't do it justice, but at least you get the idea of how it curled.
