About two months ago I received a fun package in the mail. In the package was the Sleep Styler in Large. Let’s just say I was super excited and couldn’t wait to try it out. She Sleep Styler was featured and backed by Lori Greiner from ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank. Now, I watch Shark Tank so you can only imagine how gitty I was to try another product from Shark Tank once again. What made me more excited to try this out, is that I actually watched this episode of Shark Tank when The Sleep Styler was featured and I was definitely swooning over the product before it landed at my door step.
The Sleep Styler was invented by Tara Brown. As a mother who also worked, her goal was to be able to cut down the drying time and styling time for her hair so her routine wouldn’t be as lengthy. The Sleep Styler curls your hair while you sleep and helps to save an hour of styling time. You can achieve beautiful styles with effortless work and it’s perfect for heat free styling. Each roller is marshmallow soft with a memory-foam core that makes it comfortable to sleep in and each microfiber material holds 4-5 times its weight in water, drying the hair super fast.
If you’ve been reading my blog or stopping by now and then, you know that I have naturally curly hair. My curl pattern ranges between a 2c 3a and on a good day, 3a 3b if I have been caring for my hair properly. It’s taken me a while to get my hair back to where I want it and I’ve finally embraced my curls, but that also means that I try to use as little heat on my hair as possible. I really became excited about this product when I find out that it was a hair styling system that not only saves time and money, but it doesn’t cause any damage to the hair.
Using this product means that I truly need to take my time learning how to use it. The first time I used it, I tried to take my curls and make them straight. My hair at the time was past my buttocks in length and it was near to impossible to get all of my hair onto two of the rollers (stacked on each other). I had parts of my hair (my lengths) that looked straight, while other parts still had curl and frizz.
After trying that and knowing that I just couldn’t make it work with my long hair, I figured I would test out the curly method. Large barrel and voluminous curls are great for that glam and beachy look so I figured I would test it out and see how it worked for me.
It was interesting and you can see me put on the rollers in this video demo here.
Putting the Sleep Styler in my long hair was a challenge, but I love that the product itself is lightweight. The rollers are really soft and while I struggled to sleep with it the first time I used it to curl my hair, I tried it again and it worked well (so long as I didn’t use my CPAP mask). I also cut off about 7 inches from my hair last week and found it to be much easier than when I tried to curl my hair with it originally.
As you can see from the photo above, it left my curls quite smooth and larger in size from my smaller and tighter natural curls. I loved that it locked in the fragrance I had on my hair from shampoo and conditioner and my hair was left shiny and had a lot less frizz. The Sleep Styler’s 100% micro fiber materials absorbed the moisture in my hair while remaining dry to the touch and it is perfect for bombshell curls that are voluminous and full.
While the longer rollers are meant for long hair, I did notice that it still left the hair near the crown of my head a bit bare. I used one and a half packages of rollers on my hair but felt like I could have used it differently or used some of the small rollers on the top of my head for maximum coverage.
Overall, I think the product is genius. I have been using it on nights when I just don’t have the time to let my hair sit and dry naturally. It’s been awesome just for drying my hair, but it also works really nicely to help smooth out my hair length so it’s not as frizzy. When I want an easy style without the fuss, I will use this to help with a no mess, no heat look. I’ve been using this product now for about two months (the video demo was filmed about 3 weeks ago) and have found what works and what doesn’t. Of course, I can’t use my CPAP mask on nights I have the Sleep Styler in, but I find that I can still get lots of use out of this product and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I think my nieces would love this as well as my sisters and it’s perfect for those who are always on the go.
Head on over to my demo here or check out the video embedded for a look at how I put on this product to create curls for the first time. Plus, I get real with all of you as we chit chat about how it worked for me.
