I CAN DO BETTER WITH MY CARMEN ROLLERS
Elsa Gwilliam, 50, is a visual merchandiser from Brockley, south-East london.
SHE SAYS: My mum was a hairdresser and she’d be horrified if I paid £450 for this. I agree. I can get a better effect with my usual tongs and Carmen rollers so I won’t be buying it.
My hair is quite thick but it usually holds a curl really well. If I use setting spray with my rollers, the curls can last a whole week. I found the Airwrap a little weird to use and fiddly when I was doing the back of my head. And ten minutes after styling it, the curls were dropping out.
I like the idea of a product that doesn’t use much heat on my hair but as I don’t blow dry it regularly, I can probably get away with using ordinary curlers, which are quicker and give my hair more bounce. I’ll be sticking with my usual styling tools.
