Roller-setting 3b hair -- what products to use??
It's been 2 years since I've worn my hair straight. I have gotten my fine thin porous hair back in the best condition it has been in in many years by using the most natural products I can find...no silicones, no sulfates, no drying alcohols, lessened use of PVPs. I've added protein treatments, learned to balance moisture to protein, as well as incorporated natural oils: EVCO, Grapeseed oil, Vatika oil and Castor oil for a variety of purposes like pre-poo'ing, sealing and conditioning.
Now that fall/winter is here I want to wear it straight BUT I do not want to lose the curl health/definition I have achieved (of course
). I'm leaning towards a roller-set (always got smoother longer set) instead of doing a blow-out/flat-iron to straighten. I may need to touch up roots or smooth a little w/ flat-iron after roller-set.
MY QUESTION is: What products should I use to "set" my roller set that do not contain all of the silicones and drying alcohol? As well, what do I use for heat protection?
Any experience/advice/youtube recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks and HAPPY MONDAY!
