Have you ever started styling your hair, and while you started with the best of intentions, it just didn’t turn out the way you intended? Well that was my story a few weeks ago, but I refused to give up! I know that a roller set on my dry natural hair works out better than on my wet hair for a ton of reasons, I knew with a little tinder loving care I could fix my failed roller set.

And let me be clear that I’m being just a tad bit dramatic when I say that it was a failed roller set. My process and roller set where pretty good, they just weren’t so great for my fine hair. So I had to find a way to adapt the look to best suit my hair’s needs.

Oh if you are wondering about why my hair is so shiny and bouncy, I did a ApHogee protein treatment on my hair just before the roller set.

Roller set tips:

  • Make sure to use a leave in conditioner to nourish and add moisture to  your hair.
  • If you plan to sit under the dryer use a heat protectant.
  • Make sure to pull the ends of your hair around the roller (see video 4;55) to avoid a harsh angle, or fish-hook, in your curl.

Tips for normal to thick hair:

  • If your hair is normal to thick it may take a little longer to blow dry. You also may choose to use a Denman brush and smaller sections.
  • You may choose to add a pea sized amount of an essential oil like coconut or jojoba oil after you wrap your hair keep it smooth.

Tips for normal to fine hair:

  • If you have fine hair with low density like mine make sure not to put too much heat and stress on your hair.
  • For fine relaxed hair, use smaller rollers that will give you a tighter girl than originally desired. Fine hair doesn’t hold curls as very easily.
  • For fine, curly, hair that is natural, use larger rollers that the curl desired. Since the hair is curly it will contract once the rollers are released.
