Pin curls never worked for me.
PERMS didn't work for me.
Hot rollers were a laugh and a half, and curling irons/the straightener trick???
Now... a $3 set of dollar store brand foam curlers and garnier curl spray...
have turned this...
Ladies, if you're having trouble with curling your hair, don't give up! You can be a bangin' babe with perfect curls; you just have to find what works with your locks.
My hair is considered baby-fine, for the record. Let me tell you how freaking ecstatic I was when this worked!
Foam rollers are the bomb! It's the only way my hair holds curl too.
I have such a hard time keeping a curl in my hair. Is Garnier Curl Spray what stylists refer to as a "setting lotion"? I've been doing some research about how to achieve those 1940's - 1950's style curls and almost all say to use a setting lotion on each section of hair before you wrap it. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to spend 45 minutes wrapping my hair in hot rollers & leaving them in for an hour only to have the curls fall out in a matter of hours. Do you use the foam rollers on dry or wet hair?
I've used what's called a wet set. And yeah, the garnier setting spray is what I use as well.
(Also, believe me I know how much it sucks to have used hot rollers and them not work!)
What I do is, tie the majority of my hair back and do it section by section. I use a spray bottle of water on the section of hair I want to dampen, then comb it out so there are no knots, then spray with the curl setter, comb, and roll.
I usually do this a little earlier in the evening, so my hair has time to dry a little, but then I tie a head scarf around the rollers and let them do their magic overnight.
