Roller Set…FAIL!

Roller Set…FAIL!

I bought two packs of Snap-Around hair rollers when I went on holiday last year.

Each pack cost me .99p and had 10 rollers inside.

I prepped my hair by shampooing with Lush Jumping Juniper, deep conditioned with a mix of Mill Creek Biotin Conditioner and Body Shop Banana Conditioner.Then followed with an ACV rinse, Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-in Conditioner and a heavy moisturiser. Bad idea. I shouldn’t have added the moisturiser because my hair refused to absorb it.

I kept trying to roll up my hair, but it kept getting stuck between the rollers! So after several futile attempts, I settled with installing flexi rods as can be seen above. I took down the flexi-rods and the couple of rollers that stayed on my hair the next day, and my hair was still slightly damp. On the plus side, I liked the volume from the damp hair and although my curls didn’t set, I learnt a lesson. NEVER buy rollers with ‘teeth’ or large gaps in between, they will only pull my strands and get stuck in my hair.

      Thanks love!

      I have what I would call a negative association with hair dryers. They are hot, they make my ears burn, they take forever and they make me hot! **crying face** Maybe I’ll brave up to go under one, one day but for now, I’ll stick to waiting out two days for my hair to air-dry or using a hand held dryer.

    Same here. I tried it two back with a heavy moisturizer too and just rolled but nah…it came out looking like undefined Bantu knot outs. Next time I want to try it with a light leave in and a mousse or setting lotion

      Definitely. Everyone has been raving about LottaBody so I may get that setting lotion.

    I’ve never thought of trying rollers. Maybe I’ll give it a shot.
    The final look is still nice even though the curls aren’t defined.
