Welcome to QUESTIONS CORNER!
You can ask and I shall tell...
Can't I just use a regular headband?
Yes and no... you are more than welcome to try it, but you will soon find out is that it's about using the right tool for the job. Curleeze is designed to curl your hair so it's properties are different than a regular headband:
1. Curleeze is smaller than a headband because it doesn't sit on your head, after wrapping it is worn on your head like a crown. A regular headband is often too lose and won't stay in place.
2. The Curleeze band is made from a tight ribbed fabric that works like an accordion to provide resistance from slipping out of your hair. It won't pull and snag your hair like velcro or silicone. The ribs are open when wrapping your hair around Curleeze and they close when placing the Curleeze band on your crown.
3. Each Curleeze set comes with a removable Heat'n Freeze insert. This goes inside the Curleeze band and can be either inserted frozen or heated to help your curl set in less time. To heat it simply place in microwave for 20 seconds or heat it in a small crock pot, double boiler or heating pad.
Use the right tool for the job, don't use a screwdriver as a hammer - use Curleeze to curl your hair hassle free!
Should my hair be wet when I wrap it?
I recommend your hair be damp but not wet. If it is too wet it won't dry and your hair won't be able to dry
while wrapped up and the curl won't set. Everyone's hair is different so try it a few times and see what works best for your hair.
What is the length of hair I need to have?
Your hair should be a minimum of Jaw length, approximately 8" or longer. Enough for your hair can wrap around the Curleeze band, then it is long enough!
Curleeze even works on hair that is incredibly long! Give yourself a couple of extra minutes for your long locks,
but you'll be so glad you did, because you too can finally have curly hair!
How long do I leave it in for?
I prefer to sleep in it overnight, giving my hair approximately 6-8 hours of curl time.
With the heat pack, we recommend to leave it in your hair for at least 30min-2 hours. It all depends on what type of hair you have
and what type of curl you are looking for. Want a strong curl, sleep in Curleeze with product in your hair.
Want a soft beach wave, leave Curleeze in your hair for a short period of time. Everyone's hair is different, so
you will have to experiment and find what is right for you.
Do I sleep with the Temperature pack in it?
If you are sleeping in it you don't need the optional Heat 'n Freeze temperature pack insert. It would possibly be uncomfortable
and is not necessary as your natural body heat and pressure of sleeping on it will set the curl perfectly.
After I shower do you recommend I blow dry most of my hair first?
I recommend your hair be about 80% dry and then possibly add some product on the last 6-12 inches,
depending on how long your hair is. I recommend your hair be damp but not wet. If it is too wet it won't dry and your hair won't be able to dry while wrapped up and the curl won't set. Everyone's hair is different so try it a few times and see what works best for your hair.
How do I take care of my Curleeze?
The Curleeze Smart Hair band is machine washable so just toss it in with your laundry. The temperature pack is filled with rice so it is NOT machine washable, unless you are really hungry :)
