Smile Rollersets! Yea or nay??

Hi Ladies,

I got a rollerset yesterday and I love it. I got a deep condition and got my ends clipped too. It came out great. What I wanted to know is could this be a form of protective styling? Fall is rapidly approaching and obviously wash n go's are not gonna work. And Lord knows I have trouble being on time for work already so I definitely won't be diffusing in the morning. So heat is heat, but I figure rollersetting is much better than a blowdryer. Am I right? Does anyone get rollersets now? Had any breakage or growth??

Sorry, I don't do rollersets, but if it's any help, I have heard of some curlies who do them with success. One youtube video I saw just a week or so ago suggested that if you plan to sleep with rollers, that you defnitely use the old-fashioned foam ones, not the newer, flexi-rod ones because they were really uncomfortable to sleep on. (And btw, her hair in the "after shots" looked really good.)

Have fun experimenting with rollersets.

Yes, I love rollersets this is an easy protective style it lasts at least 5-7 days. It is a great addition in the winter or summer, just washed mine out two weeks ago. I would advise to add extra moisture to the ends this part is normally dry for me only with rollersets.

Yes; and mesh rollers would probably be the best for sleeping on. My hair always crimped when I tried to sleep with foam rollers, but was much smoother with the mesh type.

My hair doesn't dry in rollers, LOL, but I do not think roller sets are damaging, I did these with the hood dryer on dozens of old ladies with colored & permed hair and it did not damage that hair, so if yours is in good condition it should be no problem at all, if you like the look, go for it.

I dunno about protective though, if all the hair is loose after you take out the rollers, doesn't it move around like natural hair? Braiding and bunning I know is protective, 'cause it keeps the hair still and it doesn't rub against itself or get tangled...

Thanks, It looks like rollersets are gonna be the way to go for me during fall/winter. I just wanted to make sure they weren't damaging. BTW, I have to be under the hooded dryer over an hour...

I'm a week into mine and it's getting really curly again with the rainy weather. That's the only bad part. Being a curly girl any style uncurly usually reverts immediately with any type of humidity or moisture.

Rollers can cause damage and breakage from tension on the hair and/or getting caught, especially if you sleep on them - More or less depending on the type roller and/or pins/clips. Soft foam rag rollers that tie would be the safest. Old school brush/mesh rollers probably the worst. Even pink foam rollers or plastic magnetic rollers with big bobby pins can cause some breakage, so be careful.

All that said, I like Caruso steam rollers - they use steam, not heat, but even with them you have to be careful about tension and tangling. Still, their set lasts for days if you sleep on a satin pillowcase, so doing it a couple of times a week isn't too bad.
