I think everyone has seen Aurora band by now, I ordered mine after seeing it online and everyone’s hair just looked amazing after wearing it overnight so I had big hopes for this and it is priced at €13.99 and postage of €2 which isn’t even the price of one curly blow dry.
I have naturally curly hair so of course I blow dried my hair somewhat straight but still a little damp and also watched the video a few times on how to do it.
I began the process of splitting my hair in two section like pig tails at the back I started wrapping my hair around the band and it kind a sticks to the velcro and then I pulled it through and then added it to the next section till I reached the middle of the band and then started on the other side leaving a gap at the back between the two sides when I was finished. The process got easier as you do it and you would need to be sitting in front of a mirror the most important thing for this part is to leave the gap at the back.
That night I slept in it took me a while to get comfortable and the next morning I was very excited to take it out till I began doing it, it was a nightmare I even got the stress sweats. There was also a few tears from pulling the head of myself and worrying what damage I was doing. My hair looked horrible and frizzy not a curl in it.
I assumed it looked this way because I got stressed so a few weeks later I said I’ll give it a go again. The process of putting it in was so easy this time and taking it out was easier as well I didn’t get stressed and took my time, I was still pulling the head of myself. The Velcro just kept making my hair frizzy so maybe if you have perfect straight hair it may work, well at least I hope it might. My hair looked fizzy and not a curl I just looked like I woke up and didn’t brush my hair. After looking more into and speaking to a few people turns out I was lucky and didn’t have to cut it out, even my hair dresser told me a horror story.
I’m sorry to say I’m slating the Aurora Band.
I did take pictures but I delated them as I felt I shouldn’t write a bad review, as I read an interview with a blogger I use to follow saying if she doesn’t like a product she just doesn’t write about it. I decided to listen to this advice which was as silly of me as you should always do your own thing.
I was going to do it again to show everyone but I just couldn’t do it to my hair.
Lots of Love
