Used my mesh rollers for the first time today and after 10 minutes of fiddling with the flimsy roller picks that came with the rollers, I gave up. It’s like they didn’t even attempt to hold the rollers tight. I used my usual clips instead and it was smooth sailing from there. Out of laziness I didn’t use end papers on I think two rollers. When my hair dried, I was left with the indentation of the roller on my ends so using end papers with these rollers is a must.

I didn’t see a drastic change in drying time, but I’ll gladly take 20 minutes off my normal drying time (today took 1 hour 40 minutes, normally takes 2 hours). Loved the results, my hair is soft and bouncy. It just falls “right,” if that makes any sense. I used 30 rollers to set my hair. After I took out my rollers, I flat ironed my roots. See the next post for the video!

(1) Pre-pooed for 2 hours with mix of safflower, grapeseed, and vitamin E oil.
(2) Shampooed with Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Shampoo.
(3) Applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Treatment for 5 minutes, then rinsed.
(4) Roux Porosity Control for 1 minute.
(5) Deep conditioned for 2 hours under my heating cap with KeraPRO Restorative Conditioner (currently on sale 2/$10 at Sally Beauty Supply!)
(6) Mixed 1.5 teaspoons of ACV and 12 oz of water and sprayed my hair from root to tip, left in for a minute or 2, then rinsed with cool water.
(7) Applied my leave ins: Darcy’s Botanicals Daily Leave-In Conditioner, ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea, and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. My spray bottle contained mix of filtered water and Paul Mitchell Moisture Mist.

Ms EbonyCPrincess, you are 3 or 3. My hair thanks you for introducing her to KeraPRO Restorative Treatment, clear rinses, and now these mesh rollers, lol! 🙂



  1. Hi!
    I love your hair
    Can you tell me witch difference between mesh rollers and magnetics rollers ?

      Hi there, magnetic rollers have smooth finish so hair sticks to them when wet, while mesh rollers have a rougher feel and have a mesh pattern.

    2. thank for answer. Where I can find this kind of mesh roller ?

  2. Outstanding, if I ever decide to relax, I want my hair to look just like yours!

  3. I love your hair!!! Thank you for the compliment on my recommendations too, I'm so glad you love everything. I also had to put the included plastic piks to the side and use the ones I had bought to go with the wire mesh rollers. Flimsy indeed. I'm so excited you love them! I think bc your hair is significantly longer than mine your dryer time wasn't quite as short.

      Thank you!
      I think Sally's has the yellow/wire roller picks, I may pick up some from there.
      I wish these rollers came in larger sizes.

    @chelleshock32: it's definitely possibly!
    @MrsDjRass: Thank you! 🙂
    @KiWi: thank you!

  5. Beautiful just beautiful, thanks for sharing and smiling. Btw loving the bounce your hair has is it due to your leave ins?

      Thank you! 🙂 I'd say it's due to the smaller rollers. I usually use 2 inch rollers and my hair is bouncy but with these smaller rollers, 1.5" my curls were tighter and thus bouncier.

  6. Great post and thanks for doing the video. Your hair looks fantabulous! 🙂
    I soooo have to buy a new hooded dryer…I miss doing my roller sets and so does my hair. BTW, which do you prefer, magnetic or mesh?

      Thank you! For now, because I'm wearing my hair either straight or bunned, I'd have to say the magnetic rollers because they come in larger sizes. The larger curls give a smooth set but with curls that aren't as tight as the curls the 1.5" mesh rollers create. I found it a bit harder to finger comb out the smaller curls and wrap my hair how I normally do to achieve straight "flowy" results the next morning.
