In my 2011 Hair Resolutions I vowed not to use direct heat.
Well, a few days ago I was in the mood for straight hair & decided I would do a roller set.
Roller setting is a great method to use when straightening natural hair. It adds body and does not use as much heat as blow drying and flat ironing.
To begin the lengthy process I shampooed and conditioned my hair. I then placed my hair in 3 sections, one middle section, similar to a a Mohawk, and two side sections.
After detangling each section I rolled my hair, in 1 inch sections, from back to front, adding a small about of Crème of Nature’s Argan Oil Foaming Wrap Lotion (shown below) to each section. I repeated this process throughout my entire head.
When I finished I sat under a hooded dryer for about 45 mintues. I then allowed my hair to air dry for another two hours.
After my hair was completely dry I removed each roller & applied a small amount of Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey (shown below) to my entire head. To prepare for bed, I wrapped my hair and placed satin scarf on my head.
The next day I unwrapped my hair and saw this (see the photo below). After spending hours on my hair it looked a hot mess! My roller set revolted on me.
This is what I think I did wrong: remember the “large” rollers I used? I don’t think they were “large” enough. Had I used bigger rollers the curl would not have been as tight and after wrapping my hair would have had a straighter look.
Despite the interesting outcome, the roller set did straighten my hair. I am definitely try this style again in the future!
