I Bought Curl formers!!!

So I just bought some curl formers :-)  I have been interested in them, mainly in how they work because they are definitely more weird than any other typical hair curling device.  But I decided to look them up on Amazon and found them for a steal!  40 curl formers for $14!!!  I don't know the pricing well on these things, but from what I could see from my quick internet search and a quick comparison of different eBay and Amazon sellers, this was the best deal ever.  Others were selling 24 pieces for $12 (half the amount for only $2 less), or 10 pieces for $7 (7x4= $28, so more expensive).  I bought 2 packs of 40 from the seller TSSS because a reviewer said that she needed 70 for her head, and to be safe that the seller won't run out or raise the price.

In case you don't know much about curl formers, this is the description from the TSSS Amazon seller's product page (uncorrected);

I have only seen 1 video of the process, by my hair idol, Youtuber Naptural85.  I watched it long ago so I don't remember what she did, but by the looks of it it seems like you stretch the curl tubes, and use the included hook to put your hair through.  Then you just let the tube close and curl, molding your hair in the spirally shape of the tube.  The hook part seems a bit complicated, but I'm hoping that being a crocheter will work to my advantage in this aspect.  We shall see.

Anyways, I will be sure to post my attempt in the future.  Until then, here is the video I watched.

So I just rewatched this video and the brand name curl formers were $70 for a pack of 40!  So this is much MUCH cheaper.  Hopefully they will work just as well,  I will keep you posted.
