I've wanted to try out these No-Heat Curl Spoolies since I first saw them online a few years ago! But, do they really work? I decided today to put them to the test in this next episode of "Fab or Fail"! What do you think?
We've shown you so many no-heat curl tutorials on our channel, and you can use pretty much anything to curl hair as long as the device helps the slightly dampened hair to hold its shape long enough to dry.

I ordered two sets of 15ct Jumbo Spoolie sets, along with a box of 24ct small curl formers. I did this to try out both sizes for you, so you can see what to expect from each. For this Fab or Fail, the spoolies on the right side were placed in completely dry hair, and the spoolies on the right side were with slightly dampened hair.
It took about 15 minutes to put these curl formers in my hair, and then I left them there for about three hours.
These heatless curl contraptions are made out of silicone, the elasticity of which helps hold your hair but also makes taking them out a little painful (and even pulling out some of the strands). I also show you a technique that I used in applying the spoolies, that I felt was way easier than what the included instructions demonstrate.
I also found that the spoolies popped out about 15% of the time, which could make sleeping on them a little difficult. If I were to do it again, I would wear a headscarf on my head to help hold the spoolies down on against my head.
After taking out the spoolies from both sides of the head, you will see that they dry application side left a subtle beauty wave. Who doesn't love beach waves? AND NO HEAT, too! On the slightly-dampened side, you can see that we ended up with a tighter, more full curl, which can be a beautiful look and excellent for an updo base.
Obviously, these work best on long hair, for long hairstyles, and also medium hair. I'll have to try them out on Bailey to see how they do on short hair.
Everyone, this is not a sponsored video... I personally bought these on Amazon and have had zero contact with Spoolies. My results and opinion is expressly my own. Also, my results may not be your results, as the final curl takes in many factors including hair health, texture, length, how wet the hair is, how long you wear them in, etc.

How do I rank these Spoolies on our Fab or Fail Scale??? I actually give it a "Fab" AND a "Fail". Why? Because for the benefit of the curl... the difficulty in keeping them in, and the pulling on hair when we took them out, combined with what I feel is a high price, gives it a Fail. But, I also give it a Fab, because I do enjoy the look of the curls and waves, both wet and dry, with no heat. Is this a gimmick? It could be. You can help decide!
