Rockin' Velcro Rollers

When it comes to creating any style in my hair, nothing seems to be achievable. Although I'm lucky to have sleek, fine hair, it is actually quite heavy and anything I try to do, drops out straight away, only the slightest bit annoying!

I have used velcro rollers in the past and after not having much luck, I gave up. I have since decided to give it another go and purchased the Trevor Sorbie Self-Grip Roller set, containing 30 various sized velcro rollers. After a couple of uses, I've found it really lifts my hair at the roots, creates huge volume, bounce and texture. Many of you might be looking at the photos thinking, it doesn't look anything special, but for my hair, this is a BIG difference!!

This is how I 'roll' ;-) 
After washing hair, apply volumizing mousse to roots and blow-dry until almost done, leaving the hair slightly damp.
♥ Apply the rollers. I like to use the largest on the crown of my head. I make a line of rollers starting from the front of my head all the way to the base of my neck. I pull the hair up, apply the roller to the tips of the hair and pull backwards tightly to the roots.
♥ I take sections each side, using medium and smaller sized rollers, working from the top down.
♥ I hold each roller in place with a kirby grip/bobby pin to secure it while it sets.
♥ When I've finished the whole head, I spray over with a flexible but strong hairspray and leave for about 30 minutes.
♥ After 30 minutes, I remove all of the pins and gently pull each roller out, starting at the top of my head. Once all the rollers are removed, I ruffle my hair and apply another light spritz of hairspray for extra hold!

I hope that my description makes some sense, but if you don't quite understand, you should get the gist of it by looking at the first photo! Remember, everybody's hair is different, so it might work differently for you, I'm no expert on styling hair but I've just found this way works best for me. Although it doesn't really curl my hair, it does give it lift, which is what the rollers claim to do. 

Let me know if you give it a try!
