I bought a few sets of rollers so that I could roll my hair and then blow dry it for the perfect glossy curl.
When I had relaxed hair we always used these type of rollers to "set" our hair and they worked like magic. I thought this would be better than all the blow drying methods I had read about because the oldest section of hair (the ends) would be completely protected and only the newest and strongest hair would be exposed to any heat.
However, I quickly realised that these type of rollers only work on relaxed hair; they were far too harsh on my natural tresses.
When my hair was adequately detangled I pulled the roller up the length of hair I wanted to roll and it made this horrible crunching sound like it was being forced. There were some broken hairs on the curler right away.
I was very disappointed but I plan on trying the technique again; this time with smooth rollers!
