    How to use velcro rollers

    Velcro rollers can help produce volume and soft curls while freeing up some of your prep time in the morning.

    -To create the most volume place roller directly on top of the section. Do not allow it to hang or drag.

    -To avoid frizz apply a little styling creme. Using products such as mousse or styling cremes before rolling the hair can help achieve the ideal results. This gives the most memory to the style.

    -Consider the desired shape and apply the rollers accordingly. For example roll toward or away from the face accordingly.

    - To create a wavy look alternate the direction of the rollers. Example: right, right, right, the the next row, left, left, left.

    Experiment and have fun!

    I used to use velcro rollers when my hair was longer.  I dried and styled it as normal, then put in the rollers for extra volume.  I found that if I left them in for longer than about 5 mintes, I got kinks in my hair.  Once I took them out, I sprayed a little hairspray to hold it.  Looked good and added volume.

    Only use Velcro rollers on dry hair—better yet, use ‘em on just blow-dried hair since, ideally, you want your hair to still be warm (it’ll hold curl/volume more). OK, so tightly roll your hair, section by section, around each roller. To keep it from unraveling, slide a bobby pin through the underside of the roller where it rests on your head. Give all the rollers a quick blast of heat from a blow-dryer and let them cool. Then take out the rollers. Notice major volume and sleekness! If you’re feeling lazy, you don’t have to roll your entire head of hair—just go with four or so rollers in the front and top of your hair (two on the top, one on either side). Ever have a professional blow-out when the stylist leaves her round brushes rolled in your hair after she dries each section? This is the same idea!
