8 Easy steps on how to use hair rollers


Wash hair

Start with clean and nourished hair. It is recommended to use a shampoo and conditioner that strengthens hair strands. It should also help your locks become smooth and manageable. This way, your hair remains beautiful whether it’s styled or not. Regularly wash hair with TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo and TRESemmé Platinum Strength Conditioner to reinforce your hair’s natural barrier and protect it from future damage.


Protect hair

Spritz some heat protectant on your hair to shield it from heat damage. Make sure all sections of your hair have been sprayed. Spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair before blow-drying or ironing. The spray acts as a barrier between your hair and heat, protecting your lovely tresses from damage. Then blow dry your hair.


Divide and spray

Starting from your hairline, take a section of hair about the same size as your roller. Lift it, then spritz hairspray near your roots to help hold your would-be hairstyle. Use TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray to help make your hairstyle last all throughout the day.


Roll it

Place one roller under the section of hair that you took in No. 3. Roll this section of hair inwards. Repeat this step until all sections of your hair have been rolled in hair rollers.

Hair hack: The bigger your rollers are, the more volume your hair will have. On the other hand, smaller rollers will produce less volume but they will give your hair more movement. Use the right hair rollers for the effect that you want.


Blow dry

With your hair rollers still on, blow dry hair for a few minutes. This will help set your curls.


Remove hair rollers

Once you feel that you have blow dried your hair enough, gently remove each roller. Avoid tugging or removing rollers abruptly so as not to ruin your curls.


Shake it

Run your fingers through your hair and shake it to loosen hair a bit and give it bounce.


Go out

Now, your hair is all set for whatever you plan to do during the day. If you have time in the morning, you can put to use hair rollers to create a chic, wavy ‘do for work. You can also use this technique to style your hair for special occasions such as weddings, corporate events, or parties.
