    I edited my comment about FOAM rollers for use WHEN AWAKE only; you're right, they are not comfy either, but somewhat better if done with care.

    Those pincurls hurt day or night

    Yup, must have been a 50's thing

    Thanks for all the emotional hugs

    wow I didn't realize the extend of the pin curls. Sorry to hear that.

    Growing up my mom would excessively and aggressively brush the heck out of my curls to beat them into submission but I didn't have to sleep with anything in my hair. I cant imagine how uncomfortable that must have been. I tried ONCE to sleep in those long foam rollers and I hardly got any sleep that night. That was the one and only time.

    I was lucky. My mother didn't have enough bobby pins for my head of long very thick hair (yes it was, when I was young) so she resorted to both hard and foam plastic curlers. She gave up when she recognized that no amount of work or prayer would make my straight hair curl -- or even wave, for longer than a few minutes. Even those foam things were painful all night, so I'll second GG and recommend you not torture your young ones with nighttime hair-changers.

    In early high school I slept with my hair wrapped around big purple plastic rollers that were about 2" across. We all did. Thank goodness someone invented electric rollers! That was the end of all that stuff, pincurls and rollers alike.

    Well, it wasn't an intentional pin curl. . . but I had my hair up in a coronet most of the week, and upon taking the braid out, discovered this sproingy lil ringlet:

    Being tucked in the "pocket" of braid at the back of my neck had about the same effect as being pinned in place to dry!

    How cute!!!
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.
