Hello, Ladies (and Gentlemen). Spring is at it’s peak and we all know what that means…
For my transitioners out there, this means that while your relaxed hair may lay flat, your virgin hair will BLOW UP!! So, it is important, especially during this time of year, to find ways to blend the two. I am by no means an expert, so the only thing that I know how to do is roller set. I’ve tried braid outs, bantu knots(which should be THE easiest thing to do), twist outs, but none have come out as good as the roller sets. Needless to say, I need more practice.
For those of you who may be experiencing the same problems with these styles, then I assure you that the roller sets I do are much easier. For this post, I will explain how I achieve these looks.
-To achieve this look, you will want to have freshly washed hair. You can follow the steps I take to wash my hair or whatever wash method you may already have.
-After your hair has been washed, part your hair in four sections and make sure to de-tangle.
-Starting in one section, begin to make smaller sections and roll that hair with medium sponge rollers. For one section, three medium rollers work for me; however, it may differ person to person depending on hair type.
– Continue to do this for each section, using smaller rollers as you get closer to your hairline.
-After all of your hair has been rolled, cover with a silk scarf and allow at least 8 hours for drying.
-Once dry, take the rollers out and fluff your curls! You can add a moisturizer and a bit of gel to your edges.
You’re done! This style can be worn for about a week, maybe even a bit longer depending on your upkeep. I make sure to moisturize every day and wear a silk scarf at night. I even roll some sections again if the curls begin to fall. I hope this helps!
Happy Hair Growing!! 😉
