My Sleep Rollers Review

I’m becoming quite addicted to twitter lately and I have been reading so many tweets mentioning SLEEPROLLERS! So me being a lover of my heated rollers and big hair I had to investigate to see what these were all about.

I went onto a website called https://velcrosleeprollers.com/ and there they were, velcro sleep rollers what you can sleep in loved by numerous celebrities!

I placed an order and within a superb 48 hour free delivery service I received 20 of the Velcro rollers along with a gorgeous bright Pink drawstring bag to keep them in.  Priced at just £16.50.

Before – Straight Hair

I always look forward to my sleep but that night I was actually quite excited about going to bed!

I got ready for bed and brushed my hair through and was ready to follow the instructions on the packet:

Step 1 – For best results use on dry clean hair.
Step 2 – Section hair as you would with normal rollers
Step 3 – Roll your hair in the direction if the desired effect. For Big Bouncy hair roll clockwise, for the flick effect roll anti clockwise, always roll the crown of your hair clockwise.
Step 4 – Secure your rollers with clips.
Step 5 – Relax and have a great nights sleep!

All Done
Hubby making me laugh telling me he ‘s going to sleep on the Sofa as the bed won’t be big enough!

I’m a regular at using rollers so putting them in was fine.  The rollers are like the normal Velcro rollers but a lot thinner and have sponge in the centre that makes them quite squishy! I secured them with Kirby grips just between the sponge and plastic part of the roller.

As you will see on my before picture I have very long hair which is also very thick I only had to use about 17 of the rollers and found them very light once they were all in.

I left the rollers in while I had a bath in the morning and got ready and couldn’t wait to see the results!

As soon as I started to unwind the sleep rollers I could see it had definitely done what it advertised to do ‘Hello Great Hair’

The Verdict:
As I laid my head on the pillow I did notice that they were there and I’m afraid my sleep wasn’t that great that night.

They did bend and squash into my pillow but this wasn’t enough for me to have a full good nights sleep.

As this was the first time I have ever slept in rollers I think this could play a big part into why I didn’t really find them that comfortable but for hardcore roller fans who usually sleep in their rollers they would probably like these.

I would definitely use these as day rollers and to put in first thing in the morning to get ready for a planned night out as they would be comfortable enough for me to have an afternoon power nap!

I would love to hear from anyone who has compared them though to wearing normal rollers to bed?

  1. Thank you for your review, I am thinking of purchasing these rollers but wanted to read some unbiased reviews first. Your observations about sleeping in them was a little uncomfortable was refreshing to hear. I think I’ll go ahead and buy a bag as your before and after pics are amazing.

  2. Hi. Thanks for the review. Did you roll them anticlockwise or clockwise to get the result in the pic? Looks great by the way 🙂
