Steps for putting on hot rollers

Putting on hot rollers is easy if you follow the steps correctly. Otherwise, you won’t get the curl or volume you want. Here are the steps you must follow:

  • You should prepare your hair by shampooing and conditioning it. Let your hair dry completely. Then apply hairspray.
  • You should divide your hair into some sections depending on the thickness of your hair. If your hair is of medium thickness, then make six sections.
  • You should always roll away from your face. Place the roller underneath your hair, leaving a few inches towards the end. Then wrap the ends under the roller and keep rolling the rest of the hair towards the scalp.
  • Once it is tight, secure it with a pin. If you are using a U-pin, you should use it from behind and hook it at 90-degree angle. Then tilt it downwards a bit. When you hook the pin at 90-degree angle, the pin will be able to hold more hair. So, your roller will be more secured.
  • If you want volume, then you must roll the hair from underneath, not over it. You will get some mangled ends which you need to smoothen out. Otherwise, your finished product look won’t be perfect.
  • If necessary, you can use more than one roller. It depends on the thickness of your hair.
  • After some time, when the curls are ready, you should remove the pins and take out the rollers one by one. Then blend all the sections of your hair to get a natural look.
