Curly Styles....My own hair without extensions, 2006 to Present
Here are some pics of my hair curly.
--Regular Rollersets - I usually set my hair and sit under the dryer for 1.5 to 2 hrs weekly
--Caruso Steam Roller-set - I really like my caruso steam rolllers!!!!! i washed and blow dried my hair. then i added a little ic polisher and rolled my hair with the steam rollers. instead of using only water i added a couple of drops of Hydratherma leave-in conditioner to the unit before rolling my hair and my hair came out sooooooo soft, bouncy and full. i loved it. it lasted all day too! what a great way to do your hair without using heat!!! The secret is to not leave the roller on the steam for more than 3-5 sec and the same with the roller cap. Also use end papers for a smoother finish. after setting my hair with the rollers i let then stay in for about 45 minutes....these rollers are da truth!!!!!!!
--Bantu / Zulu Knot set - After rollersetting my hair I wanted to try a loose wavy look without using curling irons so i combed out my rollerset, added some Hydratherma Moisturizer and put my hair in 4 bantu knots. I sat under the dryer for about 5 minutes and left the knots in for about 2-3 hours. When I took it down, i had soft waves --
--Pin Curls - I HATE sleeping in rollers so i pin curl my hair at night to maintain a curly look. i use 2 different techniques. Technique #1 I roll my hair like i would with a regular rollerset but omit the roller...lol.. i use a long bobby pin to keep it in place. This will give you a tighter bouncy curl. Technique #2 I twirl pieces of my hair around my finger then pin very close to my scalp. This will give you a looser curl. After pin curling my hair, i cover my hair with a satin bonnet and go to bed.
