Tips On How To Roll Your Hair with Rollers.

Experimenting with different curly hair styles is easily achieved with the use of hair rollers. These rollers are usually made of plastic in different sizes and configuration. It is up to you to choose the right one that is most convenient for you to use. Some are made of foam that will allow you to sleep with the rollers on without much inconvenience. Rolling hair to make it curly or wavy without perming it is quite easy. The tips below will guide you.

  1. There are different types of hair rollers. One is a foam roller with a lock attachment that goes over the rolled hair and is locked in place on the other end. There is a roller that comes with a half roller cover that is used to secure the rolled hair and the roller on your head. Some rollers have open ends where you can easily slip bobby pins into to secure it to the hair shaft. Others are made of soft, pliant plastic with rows of pointy teeth that acts like a comb and secure the hair in place. A bobby pin may be used to anchor them to the head. Some can be used on dry hair and some can be used on wet hair.
  2. Comb the hair down and remove the tangles. Wet the hair with the spray mister. You can wet the whole head or wet it in sections. Use the method that is most convenient for you. Start with the hair in the middle of your head, along the forehead. Get a section that is less than the width of the roller that you are going to use and about an inch thick. This is the right amount of hair that can be easily rolled around a hair roller.
  3. Comb the hair up and place the roller under the hair ends. If the ends are slightly uneven, use the pointed end of a fine toothed comb to guide the initial strands over the roller, and then use both of your hands to roll the hair down and away from the face.
  4. Try to maintain a straight line of both sides of the middle section. Gather another inch-thick bunch and repeat the rolling process. You may need to secure the roller with bobby pins, use the lock attachment or the roller cover to secure the rolled hair onto the roller and the head.
  5. Spray the hair with some water if it dries out so it will be easier to keep the hair smooth and controlled. Continue gathering and rolling until you have reached your nape.
  6. Go next to the side sections that should be near your face and going over the middle of your ear vertically. Comb the hair sections up and roll the hair down. Depending on the size of your rollers, you may be using two to three rollers on each side.
  7. Work on the last remaining sections that are in between the side and the middle of the head. Winding the hair tightly on the rollers will make the curls tighter. Likewise, smaller rollers will give tighter curls.

Place a hair net over your head to keep all the rollers in place while you wait for your hair to dry. There are hard plastic rollers that have holes around the tube that make it easier to dry the hair with the aid of a hair drier. Cover your head with a nice bandanna if you have to go out for some errands while you’re setting your hair with rollers. Use hair spray or mousse when you have taken the rollers out and styled your hair just the way you want it to keep the curls longer. Do not over brush that curls as this will straighten the hair out.
