2. So you should see that I honestly start off with such boring, flat and lifeless hair!
3. Another good pointer is to make sure your hair is completely dry when you use your heated rollers. Curling freshly blow dried hair is pointless because there will still be a lot of moisture in your hair that the curls just drop out. I like to wash my hair either the day before I curl my hair, or if I'm using the rollers in the evening, I will wash and dry my hair that morning. Go easy on the conditioner too as overly soft hair does not hold a curl. I like to use a good hair mousse before blow drying as this adds extra volume and texture - any will do the trick.
Before I use the rollers I will give my hair an all over a spray with L'Oreal Elnett Satin spray. I use this flexible one as I think it smells sooo much nicer than the original. It's an amazing hair spray and worth the extra money. No stickiness or crunchy bits and it does exactly what it says on the tin. This will give the curls extra staying power.
4. So I begin using the rollers at the top of my hair and work my way down. There is a knack to doing this but you just have to do it a few times to pick it up - practice makes perfect. Also as you can see I do it really roughly, It doesn't need to be amazing! Get the clips in as soon as possible so you don't lose heat. I try to curl away from my face. Nice face here Nat...
5. While the rollers are in I'll do my makeup for the evening/occasion...
6. Once the rollers are COMPLETELY cooled, usually after 30 minutes to an hour, I'll give them an all over spray with hairspray and then it's time to take them out! I then give them ANOTHER spray - yes I know this is a lot of hairspray, but that's why it's important to use a light and flexible product like the Elnett satin. I run my fingers through the curls and style as desired.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you did and how you get on with your heated rollers if you decide to give it a go!
