I DID IT AGAIN!!

 
The last time I had my hair cut, I was told my curling iron was damaging my hair, and it would be wise to use hot rollers instead.  I was going to Rite Aid to see what I could find, but today at (you guessed it) our local Thrift Store I found these hot rollers.  They had never been used. Still in the box, the clips still in the sealed bag, and the cord still had the little plastic tie around it.  I took it to the back of the store and plugged it in, and immediately it began to heat.  Yeah they work.
 
 
I looked at the price tag~ $3.99.  I'll take it!   I tried them tonight and the clips hold the roller tight, and since I've never out grown "70's Big Hair" these are perfect for the way I wear my hair. 
What would I do without my Thrift Store...my retirement hobby!!!

  12. They still make hot rollers? I haven't used those since the 80's. :) My mom used to put my hair in Toni perm rods when I was little. I used sponge rollers at one point, too, but couldn't sleep very well on them. Now I just let my hair do whatever it wants to. :) Best wishes, Tammy
