Dry the hair thoroughly. It's for the best if you can simply allow the roller set to dry
naturally, but often, time constraints mean that you must have some means of drying
the hair. (A portable hooded dryer was used for our demo, on medium heat. These
convenient appliances are relatively inexpensive and are available at most beauty
supply stores and at some department stores.) Once the hair was dry we allowed it to
cool then removed the rollers for a comb-out.
The one thing you must be careful with in styling a roller set is roller marks - the
lines of separation where the hair was segmented for wrapping around the roller.
Generally, these marks will disappear because of the natural heat and moisture of the
scalp, but in persistent cases, a small amount of moisture applied with the corner of a
cloth, an eyebrow brush or a toothbrush will help to relax these lines.
During the comb-out, begin with a wide toothed comb, and gradually work your way
to a finer bristled brush as the hair is loosened. This will prevent snarls and tangles,
and keep you from breaking the hair accidentally. Once you can do so smoothly, use a
natural bristle brush to continue to soften the set. This will give you a more natural
looking curl, and a softer style.
If you want more defined curls, you can apply a light misting of hairspray and
gently grasp or "scrunch" the curls before the spray dries. Then, allow the hairspray to
dry completely and do not re-brush. (We did this with our demo to clearly show the
curl pattern achieved with our roller set.)
I think you'll agree that our finished style is a soft, lovely look, and with proper
care will last until the next shampoo.
