Roller Set Results…

Roller setting my natural hair for the first time was a process. First I had to buy smaller rollers. I’m used to using the big gray rollers because my hair was always long. I didn’t know what size to buy, so I bought two sizes. I figured I could use the smaller size on the shorter parts of my hair. It didn’t take me long to set my hair. All in all, it wasn’t a horrible experience. Here are the results…




I’ve got some nice curls going. The back didn’t seem to straighten as much as the rest, although it was completely dry.



The plan was to smooth it down and wrap it to get it to smooth out even more, but I noticed that the more I combed it, the bigger it was getting. A friend said on Twitter that “natural hair can’t be tamed.” Now that’s the truth!


…and the final style…







wait for it…







wait… for… it…











Soooo… would I roller set my hair again? Not anytime soon. I didn’t roller set my hair for me to have any extravagant style. I wanted to see if the texture of my hair was softer after I roller set it. It was, but it wasn’t worth all of the trouble just for me to have my same old bun. Besides, I miss my twistout already.
