We Tried A Heatless Curl Kit On Our Natural Hair | Beauty Or Bust


Medha Imam: This is “Beauty or Bust.” Nico Reyes: Where we test
out the beauty world’s weirdest products and let you know if they’re worth your
money or a total bust. I wasn’t looking. Ooh! That’s a curl! Medha: Wow. Nico: Medha, today, we are going to be trying out Curlformers. Have you ever heard of those? Medha: I have not, but I
have seen a YouTube video, and they look like udon noodles. Nico: They kinda do look like noodles, like, they make your hair
look like Betty Spaghetty’s. Did you ever have one of those? Medha: No.
Nico: It’s a doll. Medha: OK. Nico: Basically, what they are, these long pieces of fabric that you kind of crochet your hair into, leave them on for a
few hours or overnight, and they will curl your
hair without using any heat. Medha: I love that idea. Because I always damage my hair by the amount of heat that I use when I curl or straighten it. And I just love the idea that
there’s something out there that doesn’t need heat. Nico: So I guess what
we’re gonna be evaluating these Curlformers on is will they actually work, one, two, will they work on
different hair types. Medha: Yeah, because mine, I feel like it could make it curlier, and I wanna see it basically
just waving your hair. Nico: Yeah. I think that it’s
totally gonna work for you, and totally not gonna work for me. But we’ll see. OK, we have our Curlformer kits. I got the barrel curl,
and what do you have? Medha: I have the spiral curl. Nico: I can’t wait to see you
with some tight spiral curls, because this is pretty curly, but this is curly. Medha: I’ve never gone that curly. Nico: Yeah, I’m excited. Medha: I don’t know what I’ll
look like, but I’m excited. It says, “Maintain healthy
hair as you set the curls on damp hair and dry on low heat.” Nico: OK, so we’re gonna have… so you still have to dry? Wait, what? Medha: They’re kind of,
like, fun to play with. Nico: This literally feels like
the material of a seat belt. These feel like seat belts. Medha: They do.
Nico: Loose seat belts. So, is this heatless? It’s not even technically heatless. Medha: No, because the
fact that the instructions said that we needed low-dry
heat after makes me skeptical. Nico: But it’s like, I
think you have the option of sleeping in it so that it can be heatless.
Medha: Yeah. Nico: Even though, like
you said, I don’t see how sleeping in a bunch of
little curly seat belts is gonna be comfortable on your head. Medha: Yeah. I mean,
they did it in the ’50s. Don’t you guys remember? Nico: And thank God the ’50s are over. Medha: “You can air-dry your hair or use our deluxe soft
hood hair dryer attachment on a low heat setting to
speed up the process.” Nico: OK. To speed up the process, we should probably use the soft hood. Medha: I’m down. Nico: But we could also
just sleep here tonight. Medha: That’s true. Very possible. Nico: So, I have a spray bottle here, now all we have to do
is take our hair down and start spritzing away. Our hair needs to be, like, moist enough.
Medha: OK. I don’t think soaking wet, but moist. Medha: Moist. Got it. I can do that. I’m ready.
Nico: Moist. Let’s get our hair wet. “Squeeze the edge of one
end of the Curlformer to open the ring,” this ring. Nico: Easy. Medha: I am “squeezing the edge
of one end of the Curlformer to open the ring and push
the hook gently through it, straightening the Curlformer.” You hook this on, and then I think you just… Nico: Oh, you did it! Medha: I think I’m doing it. Nico: It went right through. Medha: And then just pull? Nico: Until it comes out? [Medha squeals] OK, do you need help? Do you need help? Do you need help? OK, I got you. There we go. Ooh! It’s in there! Shove it in there. Medha: Shove it. Nico: Get in there. All right, Curlformer. Medha: This is a fun thing
to do with, like, a friend. Nico: This is a fun thing
to do if you hate yourself. Medha: I don’t know why
I’m giggling at your pain, but it’s so funny. Nico: It’s, like,
insanely difficult to do. All right, I’m trying a smaller piece. Medha: Mother of pearl. Nico: That seems to be the answer, but it’s like, I don’t wanna do less. Oh, oh God. Oh, God. Medha: The back part’s really hard. Nico: The back part is so hard. Medha: So, because you have
curlier and thicker hair, I think you need to go with an even smaller amount of strands. Nico: That just upsets me. I’m impatient. Medha: You can’t do 1 inch.
You have to do, like, 1/2 inch. Nico: I personally don’t think that this, even if I did it patiently, even if I did it with all
the time in the world, I don’t think I would
have been able to do it, my whole head, yeah, on my own. Medha: Yeah, Nico
couldn’t do it on her own. Nico: It’s really hard,
I don’t do my own hair. Besides styling and brushing my hair, I don’t use tools on my hair. I’m really bad at seeing what the heck is going on back there. Medha: The Curlformers also perform better on just straighter, silkier hair. I think if you have
curly or more rough hair, you’re gonna have a really hard time dealing with these, as you saw with Nico. And there’s just no solution to it except that someone needs
to literally step in and be your partner. Nico: Yeah, if you single, don’t buy this. Medha: And if you single-handedly do this, get ready for some pain. Nico: Now, the next step, even though this is a
heatless curling experience, is for us to sit under the soft hood dryer for, like, a few minutes,
let these curls dry up a bit, and then we can see what’s cooking under these seatbelts. Medha: Yeah. Nico: Oh, my God.
Medha: What? Nico: I wasn’t looking. Ooh! That’s a curl! Medha: Wow. Nico: I’m a little impressed by that. I wasn’t expecting it
to really do anything. Medha: It curled. Nico: These look wrong. These look bad. Medha: Wait, let me see. Oh, my God. Nico: So, Curlformers,
that was an experience. Heat is still gonna be necessary to move this along in some way, because after putting a
million of these in your hair, trust me, you’re going to wanna be done. Like, you’re not gonna wanna leave them on for hours and hours and hours. But, I don’t know, I do
think I would give them maybe like a 3.5, because your hair really did come out with curls. The price on the Curlformers does vary depending on your length, obviously. But I think that the $50 to $70 range is too high for this kind
of working, you know. I just think it could be a
lot cheaper for what it did, so I’m gonna have to say I
don’t think it’s worth it. Medha: No. No. Nico: I think you could curl
your hair other ways, heatless, that would be less annoying.

  1. Early I have that at home and they do work with my hair 💕😻 i sleep with them and it looks really good 👍

  2. If you are going to do these kinds of videos you should have a trained hairstylist to help and educate on how to use them. They should’ve used products and took smaller sections and pull it through all the way to the root. Then slept on them

  3. Curl formers used by people with curly hair? What? Wouldn't it have made more sense to do this with straight hair?….

  4. You can use curl formers if you have curls. They should’ve used curl styling products to define the curls with better hold. There are tutorials online on how curl formers can be used on natural hair.

  5. I bought this for my daughter (she is a toddler) and we love them!! They come out so good! And my baby looks super cute!!! 😍🥰💖

  6. I don’t even feel like y’all tried to do it right. You used no hair product nor even tried to section your hair for better results. That’s just me tho 🤷🏽‍♀️

  7. People with curly hair can use curl formers.

    1. Her hair was no dry when they took them down.

    2. Her sections were way too big and untidy.

    3. Styling products would have made it turn out bomb.

    How is she a curly girl and not know those cardinal rules?

  8. To use curl formers on curly/kinky hair you first need to detangle through the sections and dampen them. If you want to add styling cream you can as well but it definitely will not work on type 3-4 hair without detangling the section first

  9. A lot of people in the comments are saying it’s for people with straight hair but most of the videos I seen are naturally curly hair

    Yes some of them did blow dry before hand but it still can be a heatless curling process if you stretch your hair without heat or on the cool setting of the blow dryer

    Or just use mousse or gel or something with a good hold

  10. I feel like they should have put either one person w straight hair and one person w not straight hair or the two of them and a person with straight hair bc these two already have curly hair so i cant really tell if it worked or not bc their curls are already t h e r e

  11. Love these videos but…. kind of didn’t make sense to not brush out the curl before. My hair is the same kind of 3b curl and your results are exactly what I’d expect. Brushing out the curl will give a way different result.

  12. This video is Horrible!! Everyone please find other YouTube videos on this product which show they work on all hair types and they’re used properly!! These ladies were making a joke of this and not properly using the product. Her hair wasn’t dry when she took them off and her parts were WAYYYYYY TOO BIG!!

  13. I feel like the girl with curly hair basically had no knowledge or acceptance of her hair! She’s so ignorant to the use of products for her own hair type and similar that she almost ignore her hair texture. For a curly haired brown girl to not know curl formers are great on her and her kinkier hairs sistas blew my mind. Sad to see every time she looks lighter and lighter and more oblivious to the wonders she’s missing out on.
    How do they not know of any black 4c hair girls that use curl formers.
    Stupid video with stupid responding and reasoning. Really gone off this channel

  14. Magnetic false lashes, please, including the magnetic black liner style that attaches to the magnets on the false lash's lash line.
