Default Roller setting/wrapping to straighten?

Hi! Has anyone achieved straight hair by roller setting and wrapping their hair? I did the roller set; it came out perfect. But when I wrapped it (which I did not do well) it just came out wavy/curly with lots of volume the next day. Am I doing something wrong?

I can't speak for roller sets but one time I had a job interview on short notice. However, I didn't have time to get my hair trimmed so instead of doing my regular routine of tousling my hair to create curls, I blew it dry and styled it with a round brush. Then used my wife's curling iron. Hair was not straight per se but definitely straighter than the norm. I wouldn't mind trying a roller set once.

Mahogany curls has a video where she did that. It was really pretty. She used saranwrap to wrap it. It had amazing body.

I saw the video. Yes, she had amazing hair. I'd love to do her roller set on my hair but I can do without the Saranwrap.

I only wear it occasionally but just enough to shake people up. You should have seen the looks I got from people the first time I wore it in a public place.
