Having and maintaining natural hair doesn't have to be boring. Spice things up beyond blowouts, braids and twists by getting creative with curls. Turn your locks into a mine of curls that can be pinned up for a chic look or down for an ultra-sexy deep wave. Whatever you decide, use the best rollers to help curl your natural hair.
Who says luxury is just for the wealthy? Natural hair expert Nikki Walton of CurlyNikki.com loves satin-covered sponge rollers. Brands like Goodie and Hype Hair satin-covered foam rollers give your natural hair a tight curl without causing any breakage or snagging. Pamper your tresses with satin that won't absorb your natural oils and makes for an easy wet-set look.
For instant, worry-free curls, "Essence" magazine selected Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Heated Clip Setters as the go-to hair tool for its 2011 beauty awards. Wrapped in luscious velvet, these easy-to-grip rollers don't tear out your tresses when setting your style and are perfect for on-the-go curls.
Jet Set EZ Grip
For intricate styling that will leave you with a head full of voluminous curls, hair stylist Sidoione Remane, owner of All That Hair Salon in Allentown, Pennsylvania, recommends Jet Set EZ Grip rollers. Perfect for wet sets or before a blowout, these rollers have a gentle self-gripping surface that allows for faster wrapping without hair breakage.
If you're planning to rock your hair straight or bouncy by starting with a roller set under the dryer, "Marie Claire" magazine recommends choosing covered rollers that will protect the hair and create a smooth and long-lasting curl. Condition your hair prior to applying the heat and follow up with a moisturizer after your curls are set.
