Velcro® hair rollers are becoming increasingly popular for their comfort, effectiveness, and ease of use. The rollers are essentially comprised of a piece or strips of hook and loop fastener wrapped around cylinders. They come in various sizes and can help to add curls or waves to otherwise flat or lifeless hair. Velcro® hair rollers can be used on on dry or wet hair, and they will give hair extra body and curls.
Various sized Velcro® hair rollers create different sized curls. The larger the rollers, the looser the curls will be. If smaller rollers are used, the curls will be tighter. To create various looks, the user may want to consider buying a selection of Velcro® hair rollers so they can be used for different styles.
Before the rollers are attached, the user should first apply a styling product. The hair should be separated into appropriately-sized sections that will fit each roller. Enough hair should be put onto the roller that it covers it horizontally from end to end; if the rollers are overloaded, however, the curls will not shape correctly. The roller should start at the end of the section and be rolled up until it reaches the hair roots.
If starting with wet hair, the user can attach the rollers, but should not remove them until the hair is completely dry, otherwise the curls will not properly form. The hair can be air-dried or dried with a blow dryer. If starting with dry hair, rollers should be left in for 15 to 20 minutes, starting from after the final roller is attached.
Velcro® hair rollers are usually easy to remove. More often than not, the user will not need to pin the rollers onto the hair as is necessary with most other types of rollers. When removing the rollers, it is best not to pull, as that can damage the hair and ruin the curls that were just created. To remove a roller, the user should hold the roller in one hand with the bottom of the curl in the other, and slowly unroll.
Some prefer Velcro® hair rollers for their ease of use and the results they get. They are also relatively comfortable to sleep in if the user wants curly hair in the morning. If a little extra volume and curl is wanted in a hairstyle, Velcro® hair rollers may be a good way to give a look a positive curly change.
