All my weekly "shampoo and set" ladies have either gone into assisted living or died. (Sob!) It has been at least 5 years since I have had my rollers out on a regular basis. Lately, I have gotten them out for myself. I towel dry clean hair, add some Curl Definer (Joico product, a wonderful light weight, creamy gel) allow to air dry about 80%. Eat breakfast, put on my makeup, and then roll my nearly dry hair on Velcro rollers. Hit it with my dryer if I am in a hurry- otherwise allow to air dry the rest of the way. Use the largest rollers possible to achieve loose waves. Very little heat and no round brushing arm strain-bonus! Remember, add and remove these rollers gently so as to not get STUCK! Let me know how this is working for you.
Joico Curl definer-love it!
