    Glad to help! Everyone always asks her what her secret is and I guess that's it! LOL... who knew a wet washcloth could be the secret!

    I am really gale to have run into this thread! My daughter has naturally curly hair, but unfortunately that isn't the look the gym is going for. We use hot rollers. Have you ever tried to curl curly course hair? Not a pretty look I can assure you! I think I might try the curling iron and washcloth trick as those curls look amazing.

    ...Now that I found this, I bet the team will decide on straight hair ;)

    I have coarse, curly hair too and my solution is to flat-iron it so it's smooth & straight, and THEN curl it. Takes twice the time but looks so much better.

    I tried that for our comp. I flattened it the night before and then did the hot rollers the next day. It just looked frizzy, but realized that I should have used hairspray before putting the rollers in. I suppose I will perfect it sometime before she is done with cheering ;)

    my hair is SO thick so using a curling iron & hairspray or whatever does nothing since my hair is heavy the curls just fall out. curlformers saved me & now i have perfect curls every competition:) i do the same thing you do (shower, curl hair wet, sleep with them, etc.) i love them they never fail!

    curing hair is certainly a PAIN! man it would take me forever until i gave up and started curling it with a straightener then realized my hair looked different that everyone else on my team...then went back to rollers

    Which curlformers are the best for perfect competition-curls? The ones that are narrow or the ones that are wide? Anyone who has tried both? Opinions?

    It's a terrible picture, but this was my hair curled last year. Bet you can't tell I have fake hair in there ;)

    If the whole team had the same curls then it looks nice , but its such a hassle trying to curl hair, some girls with thick hair it takes forever, i think nice and clean look is always the nicest.
