The Perfect Roller Set! Natural or Relaxed Hair
I love roller sets on my natural hair. I roll my entire head in 15 minutes! I of course use:
Jane Carter Leave in Conditioner and that's it!
Roller setting hair is a piece of cake once you get the hang of it. The trick is in the parting of your hair and the tight hold of the rollers.
What you need:
Rat rail comb
Coconut oil or almond oil
Starting in the front of your hair, take the tail of the rat tail comb and part 1/2 inch at most on both sides from the center and apx. 2 inches back. Part another 1/2 of hair, horizontal. This will be the first roller.
Take comb end of rat tail comb and comb out any tangles. Take roller to almost the end, holding hair tight against the roller and roll down holding hair tight. Once roller reaches head, clip with silver clips.
Repeat step 2 for top 2/3 rollers in front of hair. Starting on your dominate side, make another vertical part above the center of your ear ,then repeat Step 2.
Continue this until all hair is rolled.
YOU CAN AIR DRY OR SIT UNDER A HOODED DRYER ON THE COOL OR WARM SETTING.
Once dry, I breeze my edges with a flat iron, PLACE A SMALL AMOUNT OF COCONUT OIL OR ALMOND OIL ON FINGERTIPS AND RUN THROUGH HAIR, wrap my hair with a paddle brush, wrap with plastic wrap, sit under dryer for 3-5 minutes on warm then take hair down. You can wrap at night for ocean wave curls or pin curl for fuller curls!
NOTE: IF YOU AIR DRY, THE PROCESS IS MUCH LONGER, BUT YOU CAN AVOID HEAT THIS WAY IF YOU DESIRE.
ROLLERSETS yield amazing curl and long lasting style!
