Velcro Rollers- SCORE

Department: $1 Spot

So I hit the big T for the first time in a couple weeks yesterday, I know, I know the shame. What does a STT do first? Hit the $1 spot for some orgasmic frivolous shopping. I was SO tempted by the cute Easter stuff however, I had to remind myself that I am not festive and make no plans to be. I did however score Velcro Rollers.

Question- how do I use them? They did not include instructions. I know in my hair duh, but on wet hair and blow it dry? Dry hair and blow on it? I have no idea. I do believe that velcro rollers are the key to my success though. All of the people who have the most exquisite hair in the world seem to own velcro rollers.

So please ladies- or gents- tell me how to use my new beauty find.

  • Oh my God! I am a Target whore! Love your blog.

  • I like to put dry hair in Velcro rollers and then take a shower and let the steam get into my hair while it's rolled up. (But DON'T stick your head under the spray. That would be counter-productive.)

    I blogged about Target today. I go there so much I know who the plain-clothes cops are. Can anyone else say that? HUH?

  • The best is to blow dry your hair 99% of the way and then to put them in. Spray liberally. then blow dry the rollers a bit. then put on your make up and let them cool. Release and wait for the compliments to roll in.

  • I'm with Laurabelle. Also, sometimes I put them in my dry hair after spraying the roots with a volumizer-type spray gel. Then, I hit each one with about a 10-second blast of blow-dryer heat and let cool (also while I put on makeup). Take them out and either comb smooth for a sleek sophisticated look or just finger comb for a sexier disheveled look. It takes a little time, but the results are worth it.

  • IF you're so inclined, you can roll up your (not too damp) hair before you go to bed. Leave them in. It takes practice but you can get used to it.

    They'll look a little messy in the AM, but you can put every loose curl into place with some hair spray.

    Not for the faint of heart, but it works for short hair!

  • I blow dry my hair totally and THEN put the rollers in to set my hair. Sometimes if I'm lazy and just want a cute ponytail, I'll blow dry my hair, pull it back into a ponytail, roll my hair up into one big curl, and clip the inside of the curl with a standard hair clip. I leave it like that for a little while and when I take the clip out, I've got a curly, bouncy pony tail! Good luck!

  • Because of the Velcro Roller blog, I got myself to SuperTarget in Austin, TX this morning in hopes of finding them in the One Spot. Sadly, not only did I not find them in the One Spot, but didn't find them in the Health & Beauty section! My hair may not get to be bouncy any time soon, but my wallet left a lot lighter!

  • Thank you all SO much for your advice. I am currently testing all methods. I love my new bouncy hair. My DH thinks it's too "newscaster-ish" F him.I am a new woman.

  • Be careful not to pull as you unroll. It causes a lot of split ends. Happy bouncy hair!

  • I just got my Velcro rollers, andmust be do they stay in place? Are they supposed to stick in place or must I use bobby-pins?
