Happy Friday! Here is my roller setting tutorial. I am using the same technique as my first roller setting video minus the saran wrap. I did not use any direct heat on my hair to achieve this style. I just sat under the hooded dryer (for an hour and 30 minutes).
This is the only time I use a comb on my hair. I still follow the CG method. The comb help with smoothing.
Drying time may vary depending on the thickness of your hair or how much product you have used.
Paul Mitchell "The Conditioner" : my leave in (you can purchase at any hair salon that carries Paul Mitchell products.)
ORS edge control: to smooth my edges (it is not water based so you do not have to worry about it reverting your hair back to its natural curls). :D And it is CG friendly (you can purchase it from your local drug store).
Grey Magnetic Rollers: you can purchase them at your local beauty supply store
Magnetic roller clips: you can also purchase them at your local beauty supply store
I took about 45 minutes to set my entire head. It took about 2.5-3hrs to complete the entire process...from start to finish.
I used about 18 rollers.
at night I sleep in a high bun and remove the bun. My curls usually are much flatter the second day, but it isnt a big deal to me because I usually make a ponytail or bun. :)
This style can last for a while (as long as I avoid water...lol!)
You can use any setting lotion or conditioner of your choice. I have even used EcoStyler gel and it turned out perfectly fine!
As you can see, my hair is not bone straight. My roots have texture. Last time I used gel to set my hair and my roots were much smoother. Overall, I am pleased with my results!
Thank you for your support!
