Hair is a lovely ornament, and most women spend a great deal of time making theirs look good. Hey, there's no denying that a nicely styled head of hair makes you feel loads more confident, no matter who you are. It's tough, then, when you're transitioning with your hair; you're stuck in between a cut you're not so fond of anymore and the way you want your hair to be -- and you want to keep it looking mahvelous, not messy, in the meantime. A roller set can be all you need to stay looking glam and gorgeous during a hair transition.
Smooth out your hair with a paddle brush or a wide-tooth comb. Both work well, and as long as you get all the tangles out of your hair before putting in your rollers, it doesn't matter which you choose to use.
Heat your rollers. There should be a temperature dial you can turn to the desired temperature and an indicator light letting you know when they're heated.
Once your rollers are heated and ready to go, pull out the first section of hair you want curled. Since you're going through a transition period, your hair may be all over the place with different layers or pretty short hair, but that's OK. That's why you're using a roller set, because it's the perfect way to style your hair and make it look nice through this rough period.
Place a roller at the end of this section of hair and begin to wrap it toward your head, keeping the hair wrapped around it snugly as you go.
Once you get up to your scalp, slide a clip in over the hot roller, holding it in place in your hair.
Keep curling more sections of your hair with additional rollers the same way you did the first one. You can curl all your hair or just a portion of it. Don't forget: Even if you do curl all your hair, you can loosen the curls and make it more about volume once you remove the curlers, if you want.
After about 15 minutes, feel your hair. If it's cool to the touch you can start to take the rollers out. If not, give it another 5 minutes or so until they're cool, then take them out.Take your time so you don't ruin the curls as you let them out. Once they're all out, tousle your hair gently with your fingers and apply some serum over the top to get rid of any frizzies.
Spritz your hair with some hair spray to lock those rockin' curls and keep them in all day.
If you'd rather skip the heat, you can also use a set of Velcro rollers using the same method, but dampen your hair with some volumizing mousse or gel first.
To get the most volume in your 'do, shampoo and condition your hair, then blow it dry before putting in your rollers.
To get more variety, have a roller set with a range of different-size curlers, or have a couple different sets. Larger rollers give you bigger, looser curls, while smaller ones give you tighter, spiral curls.
