  -> wiem jaka jest róznica, ale kto w w dzisiejszych czasach robi to domowym sposobem, z gazety czy z papieru ściernego, inaczej zwanego toaletowym || tu się zgadzam, pytający jest „dzisiejszy”, dlatego nie wie :)

neutral  Polangmar: Zbyt duża różnica w obrazkach: http://tinyurl.com/342d7fu vs http://tinyurl.com/35b7noy || No właśnie - i dlatego "węgierki" to nie będzie dobre tłumaczenie słowa "śliwki". ;-)

bendy (hair) rollers/curlers/sticks/rods


Explanation:
oczywiście jeśli chodzi o niepapierowe papiloty jak tutaj:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=hair bendy rollers uk&rls=c...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dimples-Twist-Curl-Bendy-Curlers/dp/...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lady-Jayne-6-Bendy-Rollers/dp/B0028R...
słowem kluczowym będzie 'bendy', w odróżnieniu np do 'grip' roller - wałek
samo 'hair roller' nie wystarcza w tym kontekście imo:)
