Tips On How To Roller Set Relaxed Hair.

Roller setting makes relaxed hair smoother and stronger. It may take some time for you to get the technique down pat but with practice you can do it at home easily. Take a look below for the tips to roller set relaxed hair.

  1. Relaxed hair has been treated with strong chemicals to make it straight and it should be handled with care to prevent breakage and further damage. Wash and condition your hair as usual. Rinse off the conditioner. Mix together water, hair serum and leave in conditioner and spray all over your still-dripping hair. Concentrate more on the tips where the hair is driest. Gather your hair on top of your head and cover it with a shower cap. Leave it on for about fifteen minutes to allow the beneficial effects of the moisturizers to soak through the hair shaft.
  2. Comb your hair until it is straight and tangle free using a wide-toothed comb. Part your hair in the middle and draw parallel lines along each side, slightly narrower that the roller that you will use. If you are wearing bangs, pin it out of place first. Gather a one inch thick horizontal bunch of hair after your bangs. If not, then start right after your front hairline. Wind the ends of the bunch of hair smoothly and even around the roller, then roll the rest of the hair away from your face. The hair should be evenly distributed around the girth of the roller to lessen the drying time.
  3. Continue working the rest of the hair this way, down to your nape. Make sure that you are gathering the same amount of hair so that the hair will dry at the same time. Spray the hair with the water, leave-in conditioner and serum moisturizer if it becomes somewhat dry.
  4. Do the sides and the in-betweens, making sure that the hair is evenly distributed and not bunched in the middle of the roller. Make sure that you tuck the ends smoothly over the roller to avoid wayward curling hair. If you have bangs, roll the hair downwards, toward your forehead.
  5. Use a lower temperature setting when you use the hooded drier. You can even set it to the cool setting if you have enough time to allow your hair to dry slowly for longer-lasting curls. Use the medium temperature setting for about fifteen minutes to start off the drying process before you switch it on to the cool setting.

Once the hair is dry, leave the rollers on for a few minutes before removing them. Comb out the curls with a wide-toothed comb. If you do not like the volume that was created, you can wrap it in a towel and saran wrap and go under the drier again for ten to fifteen minutes on medium temperature setting. This will flatten and minimize the volume of your hair. Style your relaxed hair as usual.
