Just bought them from a hair extension place in Grafton Buildings on South Anne Street- 21.99.

Do NOT buy them from http://www.velcrosleeprollers.com/

I ordered them from that site originally and was told they deliver within 3-5 working days. 6 weeks later I was still waiting, and all my contact with customer service (emails) had been ignored. Eventually complained on Twitter and they rang me. They were sooooo ignorant and patronising on the phone and not willing to admit the fault was with them. He was very rude about his Irish customers, so I had to just get a refund.

Delighted I found them somewhere else!

Can you get these on or very near Henry St anywhere?

Also my hair dries naturally quite thick, curly and a bit frizzy, would I need to blow dry straight before putting them in? Thanks

Yup, that's how I eventually got a response too! Disgraceful service! Glad you found better ones elsewhere!

Never heard of these before but they sound fab. Quick question though, how does the top/roots of your hair look when you've used them? While I'd.love Kate Middleton curls, I fear I might end up with Princess Anne roots.as well!

If people are having problems sourcing them I got some Boots own brand sleep rollers a few weeks back because they were cheaper and they're brilliant! Work best with slightly damp hair and a little mousse. Also seen another version in Terrisales.

Thanks

just wondering how exactly you order from these guys? just facebook mail them? cant seem to see a website link, or any pricing details, on their page (i think fb may have recently changed how people can view shop pages tho)..


If anyone knows somewhere else to buy them in city centre it would be great, my GHD's broke so need something new

I bought them for €20.49 from Cloud10Beauty.ie and used them for the first time last night. My hair took 12 (Just below shoulders, average thickness) and they seem to have worked BUT when they say call them 'Sleep' rollers? They're anything but, absolute torture - I spent the night tossing and turning trying to get comfortable and when I did doze it was to dream about taking them out.

Can't see myself using them again unfortunately, the pay off just isn't worth losing a nights sleep for.
