This week’s #washdayexperience theme is “Voluminous Curls.” Roller sets are a great way to achieve big curls without during direct heat (air from a hooded dryer is considered indirect heat because hair is securely wrapped around a roller while drying). Back when my hair was relaxed, roller sets where a huge part of my regimen. I faithfully roller set my hair every week until I fell in love with air drying (until my hair got too long and my arms ached when roller setting my hair ?). Here are videos of some of my favorite roller sets using mesh rollers, magnetic rollers, and hourglass rollers.
