[Hairstyle] Caruso Steam Rollers on Natural Hair | #WashDayExperience



I felt all kinds of defeated after I failed my half-marathon last week. Then, of course, I got sick, but I was determined to have at least one good hair day!  So I grabbed my Caruso Steam Rollers. They take about 15 minutes to install and set my hair in 20 minutes (10 minutes or less if I use a dryer set on cool).

I've been kinda doing the same style for a few days now.... Hey--if it ain't broke don't fix it right?!


Here's how my #WashDayExperience went:



And here's a quick recap of the products that I used:



Pre-shampoo: Herbal Essence Hello Hydration
Shampoo: Joico K-Pak
Overnight Strengthening Treatment: Joico K-Pak Conditioner + Almond oil to seal (Find out Why I Deep Condition My Hair Overnight)
Leave ins: Jessicurl Too Shea + My DIY Hair Butter




I banded my hair then pulled it up into a top knot to finish drying. Once it was dry, I haphazardly threw in a couple small Caruso steam rollers, let them sit for about 20 minutes, removed the rollers, and then fluffed the curls. Using a few bobby pins and a stretched out hair tie, I pulled the curls in the back into a pony and left a few curls down to frame my face.

My hair was incredibly moisturized, soft and springy. So far, the curls last for about 2 days (I workout daily tho...) I can see myself sporting this look well into the summer! I love how this look screams no effort but it's still cute.

How was your #washdayexperience? 

Besitos!

  1. Hey Hun, Is a strengthening treatment equivalent to DC? I bought a Pantene Nature Fusion strengthening masque and later began to question myself whether its a protein or moisture? *Hides*

    I looove your curls, you just know how to get that curl right!

    1. Hola chica!

      K-Pak is a protein conditioner. If your product claims to be "strengthening" then it probably has protein in it too. Check out the ingredients label.. The closer the protein is to the beginning of the ingredients label, the more of that item the product will contain.

      I hope that's helpful and that I didn't completely blow that explanation!

    1. I think that I left it in for about an hour; covered with a plastic cap; without heat. I hope that helps!

    1. Caruso rollers are the BEST! 20 minutes and you have a head full of big bouncy curls!

      But truth be told---after a day or two, those curls are up in a boring high bun. I'm just addicted to simple protective styles!

    1. I picked up the set from Sally's for about $35. I love the small rollers so I purchased extras from Amazon for about $10. Thanks for stopping by chica!

  11. It's surprising that you didn't have to follow up with a moisturizing deep conditione after the KPak. Where did you get your Caruso rollers from? Great washday!

    1. Hey chica!

      I think that my hair was craving a little protein because after rinsing, it felt perfectly balanced. Kpak conditioners are smooth and creamy unlike Nexxus Emergencee or Aphogee treatments that leave your hair hard.

      I picked up the steam rollers from Sally's beauty supply. You can also grab it on Amazon.

      Thanks for stopping by!
