Heated rollers - are they actually any good?

And which ones would you recommend?

Hairdresser put curls in my hair with his brush and, of course, when I try it it looks crap. But like what he did, the messed up curls look.

i use a volumising spray after blasting hair dry with hairdryer, take a section of hair, spray with a bit of elnett, put roller in and leave til cold

take out and tease but dont brush

add more elnett

Oh, thank you. Think I may buy some. It was teh first time I got a really genuine, "Wow, your hair looks nice" from my partner. He said it quite a few times

<<He's lovely, will say my hair looks nice (if I ask him!) usually but this time was different>>

i couldn't use them, aren't very good with hair

can straighten & do a ponytail an thats it! I couldn't get the hang of rollers - maybe you could borrow some first?

tink these ones are the ones i have

Yes, am worried about being rubbish with them. Used to get all tangled up with teh velcro ones.

Thanks np. Have seen ceramic Babyliss ones on Ebay, don't know how good they are.

tink i am CRAP with them, but then again i just say i wanted the messed up curls look, and people admire it so it must be ok....

i leave bits out by mistake, have gaps, but you just tease it around and it falls into place

what cut do you have? i have a just below shoulder layered cut with a fringe thats longer than eyebrows - swept to the side ( i dont put roller in fringe)

Tinker Tue 27-Feb-07 15:49:13

Sounds similar - shoulder length with choppy layers which he curled and then messed up, slightly off-centre part and a fringe which is long which he straightened. Right, I shall treat myself

yes straightening fringe can look nice and glossy when rest is curled

good luck
