Get Ready With Me | Caruso Steam Rollers

I’ve had my Caruso Steam Rollers for a few years now (see previous posts: here and here) and decided to film how I used these rollers on my hair.  Steam Rollers are a great way to style your already straight hair without applying direct heat.

How To:

Each foam roller gets a 5 to 10 second boost of steam.  Then you then roll your hair onto the roller (I used end papers to be sure that the ends remain smooth).  Once you’ve rolled it to your scalp, you secure the roller with the roller cap.  For this style I used about 6 of the large foam rollers to do my entire head.

After about 15 minutes the steam rollers have cooled off and are ready to be removed (I usually let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes to be sure).  I remove the rollers preserving the curls and then finger style as desired.  The curls will fall throughout the day, so I use a holding spray to give them more staying power.  But even without a holding spray, these steam rollers add lasting curls and volume to my flat ironed hair (which is usually pretty limp and lifeless).  The curls from this video lasted all day.  And if I were to carefully pin curl (as opposed to throw my hair in a bun) at night, I’m sure the curls would have lasted another day or two because of the holding spray.

  1. I know this totally has nothing to do with the blog post or video, and please don't be offended. Are you pregnant?


  2. haha I was wondering the same thing! Congrats!!!! And those curls were really beautiful!


  3. Niiice vid Kim! You're def glowing and your hair was so curly and full of body! 🙂 hmmm I wonder if I'd be able to use these on my LOcs. I think I'd need more rollers since my individual LOcs are thick but I'm curious to see if this would work for me.


  4. this is so opportune! I bought my Caruso rollers yesterday 🙂


  5. So pretty, Kim! I just got some of these rollers and am even more excited about trying them out now!


  6. The results are beautiful Kim! I wonder if I could get these rollers in the UK, they look awesome! x


  7. Hmmm….I'm not sure, but I don't see why not. I will say that the set comes with like 30+ rollers, but I only use the large ones (of which there are only six). There are about six different sizes (six roller in each size). So, that might sway you one way or the other one whether you want to give it a try because your locs are really long and you'd definitely need a lot of larger ones. Thanks for visiting, Chelsea!


  8. I love when things like that happen! I hope you enjoy them. They're really great to have on hand. 🙂


  9. Thanks, Melanie! I'd love to see how they come out on your hair in a blog post (if you have the time).


  10. Thanks, Relaxed Thairapy! The added volume is the best thing. It was great while it lasted. 🙂


  11. Thanks, Lesley! I'm not sure if the Caruso brand of steam rollers are there, but I'm sure that a comparable version/brand is available to you.
