Apply setting lotion and a cream moisturiser to your hair paying particular attention to the ends of your hair to prevent frizzies and roller set your hair. Use rollers according to the type of curl pattern you want for your hair. Large rollers give you a more straighter effect on your hair, while smaller rollers give you tighter curls. Sit under a hooded dryer if you have time or leave the rollers in your hair while you work around the house if it is the week-end, or just leave in your hair for a few hours and your hair will dry out. Your hair will dry with nice bouncy curls. You can then use a curling iron or curling tongs to add the finishing touches to styling your hair or just finger comb the hair for loose curls. For more of a straighter fuller style, you can wrap your hair around your head and sit under your dryer for a few minutes to loosen up the curl, this will give you a more fuller sleeker look.
If you are short on time, wrap your hair in a towel so that most of the water can be absorbed. Do not rub the hair vigorously with a towel as this can roughen the cuticles and leave the hair looking frizzy and rough, instead pat the hair dry with your towel and then apply your favourite leave in hair products in order to seal the cuticle and keep your hair looking smooth and soft.
Use a blowdryer - You can gradually use a blow dryer to dry your hair. Use a blowdryer with a comb attachment to make blow drying your hair easier or use a good quality round styling brush to give your hair some definition and volume. Be careful not to use a setting that is too high as this can easily dry out your hair.
Alternatively, wrap your hair with a scarf and sit under a dryer for a few minutes and then use a flat iron or curling tong to style your hair, do not forget to use a heat protection product on your hair first.
Rollers - You can use rollers to set your hair for a more fluffy, bouncy hairstyle or if you want a sleeker hairstyle, wrap the hair after removing your rollers. There are different types of rollers and hair setters to choose from, depending on the finish you want for your hair.
When using heat on your hair, always use a heat protective hair product to stop the hair from getting damaged with split ends or burning. At present I use the Rusk Thermal Str8 Protective Flat Iron Spray, it works well with a curling tong or flat iron.
