I’m in my 7th month of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, and what an exciting journey it has been so far! I’ve had so much fun trying new hairstyles and products. I really hate (with a passion) to sit under the hairdryer, but for these results, its well worth it! Check out how I achieve the perfect roller set:
- I began with a clean head of hair. It's your choice whether you use shampoo or conditioner for co-washing; I decided to co-wash using Biotera Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner. I didn't rinse completely, leaving a little in for moisture. If any of you are unfamiliar with Biotera products, PLEASE head to Sally’s Beauty Supply and check them out . One word- WONDERFUL!
- I detangled in the shower with my wide tooth comb and denman brush. Outside the shower, I sprayed a bit of setting lotion (Lotta Body).
- I then parted in sections, and rolled from bottom to top. My rollers are the magnetic Yellow and Black, large size. I also added a little bit of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on the ends to seal.
- I sat under a hooded dryer for about 1 ½ hours. I allowed the roller set curls to fall, but I did flat iron the front edges. However, throughout my hair, I felt nothing but little bumps of curls!
How do you achieve the perfect roller-set?
CN Responds: I don't... wayyyyy to lazy to roll my wet hair, especially on such large rollers. I started the process on several occasions, but after one or two rollers were in place I was ready to throw in the towel. I'd love to see how it'd turn out on me though... any takers? I'm not tender headed :)
