If you have medium-length to long hair and want to create curls or add volume, heated rollers allow you to style your hair in minutes. The size and heat of the rollers can be altered to produce a number of different effects. Large rollers on a low heat can be used to generate soft, loose waves. In contrast, smaller rollers on low heat can be used to generate tight waves in minutes. Small rollers combined with a high heat setting can produce firm, tight curls. Many of the heated roller sets available in the hair care
section of drugstore.com contain a range of sizes, allowing you to style your hair to suit your mood.
Self-grip or Velcro Rollers
You can avoid fiddling around with pins and clips by using self-grip or Velcro rollers to style your hair. While your hair is damp, divide it into sections. Wind a section of hair around each roller and either allow to slowly air dry or blow dry if you are short of time. Once your hair is dry, you can gently unwind each roller and leave behind just the right amount of curl.
To achieve ringlets in long hair, you may decide to use spiral rollers. These long thin rods can be wound into damp hair to create tight, uniform curls. Beauty
experts suggest that you can achieve the best effects by separating your hair into one inch sections. Wind each section around a spiral roller, beginning at the tip and working toward the root. Clip the roller in place and allow your hair to air dry, if you have time. Carefully remove each roller. You will find that you are left with springy, long-lasting curls.
Styling Your Hair While You Are On the Go
