FAQ

Do You Put Rollers In Wet Or Dry Hair?

Foam rollers need to be used on hair that has been blown out so it’s already hot and creates a soft curl. “If you’re looking to add volume to dry hair, use Velcro rollers. If you’re looking to create a defined curl or texture, use stick rollers on wet or damp hair and leave it in till your hair dry,” he says.

How Long Do You Leave Your Hair In Rollers?

Depending on how well your hair holds a curl, leave them in for a minimum of ten minutes (30 minutes at most), and to lock in the shape, take out the rollers and pin the hair back into a similarly cylindrical shape, letting it cool like that for at least as long as you left the rollers in.

Do You Dry Your Hair Before Rollers?

“You can brush your hair smooth when it is damp, apply your rollers, and let your hair air-dry,” he says. ​​ “This also locks in your style much longer than hot tools and a blow-dryer. As your hair dries, formed to the curler, your style will last hours, if not days longer.”

Are Rollers Better Than Curling Iron?

Both tools come with their risks. Per Alyssa: “Curling irons will cause more damage than hot rollers because of the high heat settings. However, with hot rollers, you run the risk of twisting your hair too tightly which can result in breakage, especially in already damaged hair.
