Confession time: if you have naturally wavy hair, we envy you. Getting luscious, wavy locks can be hard to achieve if you’ve been born with pin-straight hair. But don’t worry, there is something you can do to cheat a salon blow-dry hair at home using rollers! The end result is fabulous shiny wavy hair with volume! If you don’t have a pack of rollers of your own, you’ll need to take a trip to your local drug store or beauty shop to pick some up.
Before getting started, brush your locks through to ensure they’re smooth and free from tangles. Add a little leave-in conditioner on your ends and lengths of your hair. You can also invest in a special curl tousling spray to maximize volume and waves. Then, spray your dry hair with water until it is moist enough.
Grab your magnetic rollers and carefully roll the small layers of your hair on each side of your head.
While your hair is still moist, continue adding new rollers to your hair to the tops sections. Roll the entire back of the hair down parallel to the floor. Spray your hair with more water if needed.
If you want to achieve volume rather than curls, pin the top section of your hair on top of your head and leave it as it is. However, if you want to create curls, simply twist this section around itself to create a large, uniform, clockwise pin curl.
Allow your hair to dry completely before releasing the curls. Then, gently remove the back rollers out and carefully brush the hair down and out to flip the hair out. Use your comb to gently combine the various segments of hair together. You can also use your fingers to merge segments back together.
As a final step, shake your hair and apply some hairspray all over your hairstyle to keep your waves in place longer.
