If you haven’t viewed “How I Rollerset My Hair – Pt. I” you will probably want to see that first to learn how I actually set my hair, this post is more how to roller wrap your hair, also known as a silk wrap.
- Rollerset your hair on medium to large sized rollers (this will differ depending on the length of your hair).
- Allow your hair to COMPLETELY dry, removing the rollers too soon will certainly leave you with frizzy hair.
- After removing the rollers, apply an oil or oil based moisturizer. I always use Bee Mine Hair & Scalp Moisturizer because it always softens my hair, gives a brilliant shine, and gives me smooth results. Because it is an oil based product, it moisturizes without causing reversion.
- Gently comb through your curls on a slight angle to begin the wrapping process.
- Comb your hair in a circle around your head using your head as a roller. I try not to use a brush (neither paddle nor bristle). To accomplish this, I begin with an extra wide tooth comb to direct my hair in a circular wrap and move down to smaller toothed combs to wrap my hair smoothly.
- Optional: Apply saran wrap around your hair. This can silken your strands a bit further, but I do not always do this step, at times it causes a bit of reversion on my new growth, but gives great results when I am freshly relaxed. Some naturals report great results with this method so I would suggest you try it for yourself.
- Sit back under the dryer for 5-10 minutes.
- Either cover with scarf and go to bed or unwrap hair. You will be left with smooth, shiny straight hair that has a lot of body and movement and best of all was achieved without using any direct heat!
