Rollersetting Challenge - Update #1 - The Silk Wrap

Last night was an impromptu wash day, I washed my hair with Nexxus TherrapeDCed with Nexxus Humectress for about 30 minutes (I did the 30 day shred workout in the downtime. yay me! :)); Rinsed it out; Used Roux Fermodyl 619 Extra Strength; and sprayed my hair with Aphogee Green Tea Reconstructor.

Tips that I kept in mind when setting my hair:
  • Sopping wet hair before rolling each section.
  • Used small sections of hair for each roller.
  • Pulled the the hair taut as I rolled each section.
  • Tried to make sure that the hair looked smooth on the roller before moving on to the next section. 
It took me about 40 minutes to roll my entire head.  At the end, I sprayed it with my Proclaim Spray On Glosser:


I sat under the hooded dryer for 33 minutes, but I couldn't take it anymore so I let it airdry until bedtime (about 2 hours):




I removed the rollers, wrapped my hair, put my scarf on and went to bed:


The next morning I removed my scarf, wrapped my hair with saran wrap, and sat under the dryer for 10 minutes (I'm not sure it really did anything):

Combed it out and this was the result. It's been almost 8 weeks since my last relaxer and I did NOT flat iron my roots, hence the helmet head (lol).  But I like the straight results overall:



By the end of the day, I was back in a bun... I couldn't help myself: 


And yes, that's just 8 weeks post.  I should get some sort of trophy for making 12 weeks plus...

My Review of this Set: My hair feels smooth and soft.  My roots are a little crazy, but that's nothing a little hair product can't resolve.  However, I wish my hair had a little more shine to it.  Overall I'm happy with the results.  I'd rate the product combination with an 8 out of 10.

Products Used:
Nexxus Therrape
Nexxus Humectress
Roux Fermodyl 619 Extra Strength
Aphogee Green Tea Keratin Reconstructor Spray
Proclaim Spray On Glosser

  2. I love the back view, so full of body. The first few times I did a saran wrap it didn't make any difference to me either, but when I use an oil and sit for an adequate amount of time I do feel a silky difference afterwards. I'm going to go for turquoise rollers tonight for a little more curl...we'll see!

    1. The view from the back is my favorite also. If I realized that it looked like that, I probably wouldn't have ended the day in a bun, lol. And next time I'll try oil. I'm looking forward to seeing your set, good luck tonight!

  3. Your curls were beautiful! I would love to see what you could so with a curly set. Have you ever tried One N' Only Argon Oil? The shine you get is unbelievable. I love that stuff.

    1. Thank you. I don't have One 'N Only but I do have the Josie Maran Argan Oil. It's been sitting in my stash because I wasn't sure how to use it. But I'll try that on my hair before I saran wrap it. I appreciate the tip.

      I wish I knew what to do with all those curls. They are really cute but I'm style challenged. I going to need to check out some youtube videos for curly inspiration.

  4. The curls were so cute!!

    I, too, had issues with saran wraps at first. I find that making sure the saran wrap is tight to my head and putting a serum or oil before wrapping made all the difference.

    Beautiful hair girl!!

    1. Tighter wrap and an oil/serum... Got it! Great tips! With these additional tips the next one will be show stopping (or at least that's what I'm envisioning for myself) :) Thanks, Shika.

    2. Great tips. I love how your hair turned out. I'll be doing a set soon and I hope it comes out like this. Have you thought about using setting lotion?

    3. Thank you. And yes, the previous posters gave some great tips. :) I have tried setting lotion in the past and while I did appreciate how pretty the curls were set, I didn't like how stiff they were. It almost felt like I was breaking the hair when separating the curls. I may have used too much setting lotion but after a few times with the same results I decided to give it a rest. If you use it a get good results, I'd love to hear about it. Because I'm sure I was doing something wrong with it.

  8. I have been trying to do a roller set, but I have problems with the clips. Which side do you normally clip, on top or underneath? I like how your hair came out. Thanks.

    1. Thanks, Angela. I secure the roller by clipping both sides on the bottom. I make sure that the clip is positioned to grab the roller and the roots of my hair. (See the third picture in this post --> http://fancyflairlady.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-rollersetting.html )

      If it needs some additional security, I'll clip two rollers together.

      You can see examples of both in the first picture in this post.

      I hope this helps and good luck with your next rollerset.
