I'm looking for new ways of styling my hair. I am not particularly gifted in the hair styling arts so I'm trying out a few things that I can manage with minimal fuss and effort. I recently bought a bunch of velcro rollers and have been reading and watching various video guides on how to use them but I just end up with a mess at the end.
My hair is just past my shoulders and has some layers in it, no bangs. I have a lot
of hair though it's somewhat fine textured and wavy. Generally, I wash my hair at night and it is still somewhat damp when I go to bed. In the morning I flat-iron it or just finger comb and go. Sometimes I put it back in a bun or twist it up on the back of my head.
For the rollers, I also bought some setting lotion to see if that would help ( based on the Jane Feltes vintage tips
) but then I see that a lot of people use the rollers on dry hair. How does that work? I always thought rollers meant wet/damp hair. I do have a blow dryer, do I need to use it? On dry hair to create heat to set the rollers or on damp hair? I have two kinds off velcro rollers. One set has a metal inner ring and one is all-plastic. Presumably the ones with metal are for use with a dryer?
So I'm only tried using them with damp hair but my hair is long enough that it seems to take HOURS for it to dry on rollers and I don't have that much patience. I don't think I can sleep in them, either.
So how do I get the most out of the rollers?
