Question about Caruso Steam Rollers

A. Dickey of Hair Rules Salon did my hair with these steam rollers and it turned out really nicely. My question is: do you have to straighten your hair with a blow dryer before using these rollers? He blow dried my hair on low heat before putting the steam curlers in. Can you just let it dry curly and then use them?

He showed me a trick about using them because I had tried them unsuccessfully in the past. If you are interested in reading about that it is in the Salon/Stylist Chatter forum.

I was thinking about making this purchase but u should check out youtube there are some ppl who have tutorials on these rollers but i dont remember them blow drying some ppl had pre straightened hair also
Hi Tena, Thanks very much for responding! I'm also wondering if I could use some sort of setting lotion before I blow dry.

I looked on You tube and everyone I saw had either naturally straight or chemically relaxed hair. I didn't see anyone with curls using it, so I blow dried first. I'm really happy with the results, but only because I learned the trick from Mr. Dickey.

I had tried to use one of these hairsetters before and it was a mess. He said I was getting the foam too wet. I need to leave it on only a few seconds and knock it against the sink to remove any extra water that has condensed. Also he advised steaming the shield too. That produced great results!

I don't know how long this will last, which is an important question. Also, I can't imagine it will work in humid, high -dewpoint weather. The big advantage is that it isn't damaging to my hair.

When I blow dried first, before using the steam rollers, I was careful to use a low setting and then the steam isn't damaging at all. With regular rollers I have to dry them with the blow dryer on pretty high and the heat isn't good for my hair.

So I will use this in winter and go back to curls in spring/summer.

Please post back and let me know how it is working for you, if you decide to get it! If you have trouble, maybe I can give you some tips like Mr. Dickey gave to me.

Good luck!

How long does your hair last when u use the rollers?
Hi Tena - that's what I want to know, too! Today is 2nd hair day and it looks just like yesterday. I'll update to let you know when it gets droopy or poufy and needs to be redone.

Sorry - I totally missed this and never posted back.

I could never get the rollers to work for me. They made my curls frizzy and poufy. I gave up and gave the set away. Anyone else had success with these?
