How to Use Velcro Rollers

By LeafTV Contributor

Gorgeous, attention-grabbing hair requires va-va-voom volume and body. Velcro rollers are essential styling tools for boosting volume while keeping frizz to a minimum. Because Velcro rollers vary in size and shape, use big-sized rollers for loose waves and smaller rollers for tighter curls.

Boost Volume

Step 1

Use Velcro rollers on dry hair. Mist hair with volumizing spray or apply mousse before you roll each piece.

Step 2

Separate hair into sections and roll each section straight up until they rest securely against your head. Pin or secure with a clip if they start falling.

Step 3

Blow dry hair on medium heat for about 5 minutes and then allow hair to cool.

Step 4

Unroll the Velcro roller exactly as you rolled it. If you pull straight down your hair could get tangled in the roller.

Step 5

Use a wide tooth comb to separate curls and arrange hair.

Create Curls

Step 1

Dry hair thoroughly. Spray with spray gel, hair spray or mousse, and then curl hair with a large barrel curling iron.

Step 2

After curling each section, roll it into a Velcro roller right up to the scalp and pin in place if needed.

Step 3

Blow dry hair for at least 5 minutes.

Step 4

Wait another 20 minutes and then unroll the curlers in the same way that you rolled them to avoid tangles.

Step 5

Separate and style with a wide tooth comb, and add pomade or styling cream to the ends for more definition.

Control Frizz

Step 1

Blow dry hair thoroughly and apply an anti-frizz cream or styling cream.

Step 2

Iron hair with a flat iron in sections going from the base of the skull to your forehead.

Step 3

Separate hair into sections and roll Velcro rollers to scalp. Spray the ends of each section with a good shine spray or anti-frizz spray.

Step 4

Blow dry for about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Leave rollers in for about 20 minutes and then carefully unroll in the same direction you rolled each curler. Use a fine tooth comb to keep frizz down.

Step 6

Separate the sections with the comb and apply more styling cream or a texturizing cream to the ends for more definition, or spritz with a finishing spray.
