Recessionista tip 2
Goody Pillow Soft Rollers
Where you can find them: I bought mine at Life Pharmacy, so I'm pretty sure you can find it at any pharmacy.
Cost: 28 Dirhams for a pack of 20.
I saw these while I was waiting at the pharmacy and thought they looked interesting. Especially since I am trying to find ways to avoid heat-styling my hair. The instructions said that they can be used on dry hair, but I used them on freshly shampooed, slightly damp hair (after I applied my leave-in conditioner and serum) and left them in over night.
They were pretty comfortable to sleep in. I didn't sleep like I normally do but I think it's because I was just aware that they were in my hair. And I'm sure that after a few times I will barely notice them at all.
I took them down in the morning and they were completely dry. I ran my fingers through the curls to break them up a bit, but it was still a little too curly for my taste. It could have been that I used all 20 rollers. I think next time I will use less rollers and bigger sections.
The end results. Don't mind my ends, they've gotten pretty dry. I think it's due to the coconut oil I've been using, but that's a whole nother post ;)
