Velcro rollers: My first experience!

Hey cuppycakes,
Probably going to get a bunch of weirdos ending up on my blog because of the title post ;) haha. They'll be disappointed! In this haul here I showed that I finally bought some rollers - Trevor Sorbie ones from Boots. I'm trying to get my hair to a much healthier state so that it grows quicker. Heat being my main enemy. So today I tried out rollers for the first time. Obviously the results aren't perfect because my hand eye co-ordination is a bit shoddy and I still need practice in putting the rollers in properly... don't laugh at my noviceness. ;)

This is me looking oh so glamorous with a full head of rollers, as you can see - this needs improvement! I put them in my hair when my hair was 80% dry and let it dry naturally when up in the rollers. I secured them with bobby pins because the velcro only holds them in place slightly. Has anyone got any tips on putting in rollers?!

These are the results I got and I'm quite pleased. I used all of the biggest rollers so there isn't much curl. I was trying to get more volume and body over curl... but next time I'll see how it looks with the smallest rollers. There will probably be more room on my head for them too, lol. Here a couple more photo's because... well, why not?

Overall, rollers are really great if you're looking for a straightish, voluminous and heat free hairstyle. I'll probably be opting for rollers a lot now. Although, for me it feels like its going to take some time to perfect. But I really recommend these Trevor Sorbie rollers. They have a variety of sizes so you can create a few different looks. Let me know what you think? :)

What is your experience with rollers? Any tips are welcome!
