Having very fine, stick straight hair I would always have to resort to use pink curlers if I wanted to have any curl. I spent a lot of sleepless nights trying to get comfortable wearing these bad boys as they pulled at my hair. I don't have any memory of the first time my sisters or mother put these in my hair so I can't fairly judge Jane's reaction to her first experience with curlers. She kept them in for about an hour and an half. Five minutes after she was supposed to be in bed she asked that they be removed. Oh well, maybe next time.
