I can't believe how many comments and compliments I get on my hair (mostly on Instagram). I am surprised because to be honest, I am super lazy when it comes to my hair. While I love the way it looks with a blowout, I hate blowdrying it myself. It takes forever and I get so overheated!
Years ago I learned about an amazing hair secret -- hot rollers! I am always so surprised at how few women know about and use hot rollers. They are amazing - they add volume, shine, and bounce!
So I thought I should share my secret for achieving a blown out look without any of the effort. The best part about hot rollers is that they take 5 minutes to put in (with practice of course) and then you are free to do whatever while they cool.
I wash my hair at night and let it dry while I sleep. My hair is thick, coarse, and wavy, so I usually put a little bit of smoothing product in at night. In the morning I brush out my hair (with the greatest brush ever
) and roll it in larger sections with my T3 Voluminous Hot Roller Set
(I use pins
instead of clips to avoid creasing). This Conair set
is another great option.
I use the larger rollers on the top sections for volume and the smaller rollers on the sides for a slight curl and bounce. I absolutely love my T3 rollers and I've had them for years, plus they are duel voltage so I can take them with me when I travel.
Once my hair is rolled, which now takes me just a few minutes, I spray my entire head with a light mist of my favorite hairspray
. While they set, I do my make up (or read blogs, catch up on the news, eat breakfast, etc.). You should let them cool for at least 20 minutes. After removing the rollers I usually lightly brush my hair and go
... it's that simple and easy! Seriously, GET HOT ROLLERS!
I am so spoiled by my hot roller routine that I rarely blow dry my hair. If it is a special occasion I might blow-dry and curl my hair with my favorite Dry Bar curling iron
Does anyone else love hot rollers?
