April Update – Rollersetting

The month of April just flew by but I did manage to get three sets in this month and I’m starting to get better at styling them.  The styling technique that has made all the difference: Pin Curls!  Add 4 to 6 pin curls immediately after removing the rollers, tie the hair down with a scarf and viola!  The last picture displays the results from that technique — Check me out! 🙂  I may do a tutorial if I can recreate this several more times.  More details about my April rollersets after the jump…






1: Magnetic Rollers

Shampoo: GVP Tea Tree Shampoo
Deep Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in Conditioner: Aphogee Green Tea Keratin Resturcturizer

It wasn’t all the way dry when I removed the rollers so it was doomed for a little frizziness.  This rollerset went straight into a bun, but I did take this pic above.

2: Magnetic Rollers

Pre-poo: Honey for an hour
Shampoo: GVP Tea Tree Shampoo
Protein Treatment: Aphogee 2 minute Reconstructor
Leave-in Conditioner: GVP The Conditioner Leave-in treatment

I attempted to pincurl these curls for bed, but the next morning, I decided to just wear it a curly high ponytail.  My hair was smooth and shiny after this set.  I really like this combination of products better than the last one, so I’ll likely continue with this for a few weeks.

Throughout the week, I pincurled it at night and either wore it in a bun or down (like above) depending on my mood and the weather outside.

3: Magnetic Rollers

Pre-Poo: Honey, EVOO, GVP Conditioning Balm for 2 hours
Shampoo: GVP Tea Tree Shampoo

Protein Treatment: Aphogee 2 minute Reconstructor
Leave-in Conditioner: GVP The Conditioner and Aphogee Green Tea Restructurizer
While setting my hair, I noticed it was stiffer than usual, so I’ll skip the Protein Treatment next time.  Once I finished rolling my hair it was entirely too late to wait for it to dry under the dryer or otherwise, so I slept in the rollers.  It wasn’t the most comfortable night’s rest, but when I woke up my hair was 100% dry:

The next morning, I pincurled and tied it down with a scarf for almost an hour.  The Result:

This is probably my best styled curly roller set to date and I’m 9 weeks post relaxer in this pic.  Unfortunately the fabulousness was short lived because of the humidity/rain that soon came.  I’ll try to recreate this look with future rollersets . . . hopefully it wasn’t a fluke.

  1. Your hair seems to like protein, yes? I've been setting and bunning lately also, too much NG to try to wear it out.


  2. I would say yes. I try to add protein to my hair in some format with each wash, either protein treatment or a leave-in. I notice without it my hair isn't as smooth, soft or shiny. Last week's wash I think I overdid it by using the Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor 2 weeks in a row because it was a little stiff. After a day or two I was moisturizing my hair with my Hawaiian Silky 14n1.

    I'm the same way with my new growth it always seems to pop up out of no where that's why I had to check to see when my last relaxer was. And sure enough I had past the 8 weeks post mark.

    PS I'm psyched for your Bangin' and Swangin' Challenge. I'll be posting about it soon!
