Carmen Heated RollersQ: I purchased a set of Carmen heated rollers recently. They come with silver pins to hold the rollers in place. Can you tell me how to use the rollers and pins. I can't seem to keep them in place with the pins.
A: Actually this seems a matter of practice. Most of the reviews I've read from new users have expressed that the rollers seemed a bit loose initially, but that they learned better how to secure them for better hold.
Avoid placing the pins where they will rest on top of a segment of hair. As the hair sets, this will cause a bend in the hair that will be visible. Slipping the pin into the center of the segment at the scalp allows you to use the hair to help make the roller more stable, but avoids visible bends, or roller marks.
As said above, it takes a little practice, but according to most of the user reviews I've seen, once you master the technique, you'll be loving your Carmen rollers for years to come.
