Oh I was hoping you would resurrct velcro thread. Now, <settles back in seat>, I was given a beauty of a blow dry the other week. All glossy, voluminous and swingy. Can I replicate that with rollers. If so, how. My hair is chin length, layered, wavy/curlyish. And are yours heated?

Great for if you have already washed your hair earlier in the day and don't want to wash again.
Pop some in, have a shower, leave for a while then use hairspray and voila, swishy and bouncy.
Love em

Do they not make your hair go a bit Monica Lewinsky? I hate hairdresser blow drys for the first couple of hours because they're waaaay too volume-y and Monica.... fine after it all settles down a bit though.

if they make me look like Renee Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair (my ultimate goal in life) then that's fine

i bought some sodding velcro ones after last thread

couldn't do it

did nearly walk inot hairdressers and ask for a blowjob the other dayblush

was wort blowjob I'v ever had-he curled my fringe under-it was shocking

HeadFairy Sat 11-Jul-09 16:21:08

Do they work on really fine hair? I have the hair of a baby duckling, fine, fluffy, flyaway and totally uncontrollable, I have tried using all sorts of curling/smoothing/waving instruments but all have left me in a real tangle because my hair is so fluffy.

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 17:56:55

yes i ahev fine hair.
how can you not do it gg?
you know when you get a wodge of hair to blow dry on your brush.
get the roller at the end of it, pull the hair taught and roll under.
it doesnt need to be precise.

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 17:58:01

haha re REne Russo - have always thought that myself, yes it comes out pretty big initially and its a bit shock but if you leave it it soon spams down.
Just had a mate here for afternoon tea and she kept saying "I cant get over how nice your hair looks"...

brimfull Sat 11-Jul-09 18:33:21

did you have scones and jam?

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 19:03:45

GOD yes we did,
i baked a sponge then put in some raspberry jam, sliced strawbs and cream

and the kids had rocky road

I need some of these. How big do I need to buy them? I have shoulder length hair, v fine and masses of it.

Oh and I have a double crown, it's such a nuisance.

Fimbo Sat 11-Jul-09 22:39:19

I always get my hair all tangled up in them.

I am that person who does the left side and thinks, well fuck it. It takes so long

nappyaddict Sat 11-Jul-09 22:59:24

I can't do them either. Nor can i blowdry my hair whilst using a brush at the same time.
