When I blow dry my hair, I can never get it to be as full or bouncy as what my lovely hairdresser Yvette can get it. I have quite fine hair, but a lot of it so I have to have to blow it in sections otherwise it looks quite thin and lank against my head. One of my quick fixes to achieving a ‘just left the salon’ look is to use velcro Sleep In Rollers. After washing my hair, I blast it until it is almost dry but still feels cold to the touch. As you can see in the picture, my hair looks quite full as I’ve just blown it, however its about to get bigger!
I take the mid section of my hair, no thicker than the width of the roller and roll the hair back and under for volume with a slight curl. I do my fringe section in the same direction as I like it to sweep across my face and into my hair. After I have done the middle, I do either side of my head, then any of the remaining hair. I can get around 14-16 standard size rollers in my hair, and less if I use the Mega Bounce rollers at the top of my head, which I have used today. I don’t pull the rollers too tight near my hairline, so it creates a lovely natural bounce. Using kirby grips or bobby pins, push the pins into the roller to secure, as far underneath the roller as possible. This is to make sure you have no dents in your hair when you remove them and they are especially good for when you wear them to bed. After I have put all my rollers in, I blast my hair with the hairdryer on a cool setting to help set the curl. Pop on a Sleep In Roller hairnet, which fits over a full head of 20 rollers, and you are good to go.
After an hour or so, I took the rollers out and the end result is just amazing! A quick spritz of hairspray and my hair stayed full and bouncy until the next morning. Sleep In Rollers are just incredible for a quick daytime use for an emergency bounce or if you wanted a more voluminous style, sleeping in them makes such a difference. I always try to keep my hair slightly damp so the curl and bounce can dry into the hair. With the foam pads inside the flexible rollers, they are a dream to sleep in, and I have no issues with uncomfort during the night. However, the first time I wore them was awful and took some getting used to!
