Using Hot Rollers
Supplies Needed
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Blow Dryer
  • Hair Spray
  • Wide Tooth Comb
  • Rat-tail Comb
  • First of all, you need to give a thorough wash to your hair, making sure that it is completely clean. Now, you can either let your hair air-dry or make use of a blow dryer for the purpose.
  • In the meantime, you can plug in the hot rollers, to make sure that they are completely heated up by the time you use them. Most of the rollers come with a light indicating that they have become hot.
  • Now, you will need to comb your hair gently, making sure that not even a single tangle is left. Making use of a rat-tail comb, divide you hair into separate sections.
  • In case you want to have hard curls, then this step would require you to spray each section with hairspray, before using the hot rollers. If loose waves is what you desire, skip this step altogether.
  • Hold one of the hair sections in your hand, lifting it straight out and away from your head. With the dominant hand (mostly right), catch hold of the hot rollers.
  • While being careful that you do not end up burning yourself with the hot roller, wrap the ends of the hair around its barrel. Thereafter, rotate the roller up to the base of the scalp and secure it with a pin or clip.
  • Repeat the above steps with the rest of your hair sections. In this context, makes sure that you use smaller rollers for tighter, more noticeable curl and volume. However, larger rollers will be the best for loose curls.
  • After you have ensured that your hair has been completely covered by the hot rollers, it is the time to spray the rolled hair with hairspray. Following this, let the hair remain undisturbed for about 20 minutes, or until the rollers are cool to the touch.
  • Now is the time to remove the rollers from your hair. In case you would like to have soft curls, unroll the rollers in the direction you rolled them. For spiral ringlets, pull the roller vertically down through the curl.
  • Making use of your fingers or a wide tooth comb, separate the curls once. Following this, you can style your hair as you desire, like leaving them open or tying them in half, and so on.
Some Tips
  • While rolling your hair, it is always advisable to start with the hair section that is closet to your face. At the same time, make sure to move from the crown, to the nape of the neck.
  • In case, even after making use of hot rollers, you feel that your hair does not have enough curl, you can always resort to the use of a large-barrel curling iron.
