I have shoulder length messy-straight hair. I say messy-straight because it's definitely not wavy but not nice and straight either. It needs lots work to look vaguely acceptable. I spend 7-8 minutes drying it and then 15-20 tidying up with the babyliss rotating brush thing. All I'm after is a bit of a tidy shape and volume. It occured to me that heated rollers could be a solution. Which ones do you use and how long does the whole process take?
I let them heat up when I’m drying my hair - though they only take a couple of minutes to heat - and it takes me 3-4min to put them in. I leave them in whilst I do my make-up/faff around and then a minute to take them out.
I only need to leave them in for 5 mins for them to work though if I don’t leave them in for very long I always blast with cold air from the hairdryer before removing.
I use those one too. Even just throwing them in v haphazardly for a short time makes a big difference. And after putting them in 'properly' .i.e slowly and carefully it looks like I've been to the hairdressers.
My mum (same hair type as me) told me rollers were the best things for my hair when I was 15. I very stupidly chose to scoff and ignore her thinking Nora batty or 80s perms. Only 15years later did I actually buy a set. You can actually see in photos a clear difference in the time period 'Before Rollers' (BR) and 'After Rollers' (AR)
