The Perfect Roller Set!
by CurlsDivine

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!

Lots of body and fullness, with minimal direct heat. The shine was so divine!

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 🙂
