My heatless blowout (Click here for the tutorial) last week allowed me to sport an array of high and low buns with ease. My hair started to feel a little dry, but I didn't want to wash my hair just yet, so I whipped out my steam rollers.
I've been yelling my love for Caruso Steam Rollers for almost 2 years now, but I've yet to give you guys an inside look at how I do them. Until today!
*cue the dramatic drum roll*
Let's change that! Here's how I got these big bouncy curls:
- Start with stretched hair. (I stretched my hair using Curlformers and then a heatless blowout)
- Divide the hair into 8 sections.
- Very very lightly moisturize and seal your hair. (I used a mist of my DIY Moisturizing Spray and a little hair butter)
- Now it's time to install the steam rollers. Set up your steamer. For these curls, I only used the small size rollers. I place the roller on the steam for about 10 seconds.
- Using a small section of hair in the back, divide it in two, two strand twist it once, then coil the hair to the ends.
- Holding the bottom of coiled hair, place your roller near your roots, then wrap the hair around the roller clockwise.
- Place the cap on the roller.
- Then repeat until all of your hair is rolled. Let the rollers dry for at least 30 minutes until the curls are set. (Pressed for time? Sit under a hooded dryer for 10 minutes on high then 5 minutes on cool.)
- Once your curls are set, remove the rollers.
- Fluff your roots using your fingers. (This will get rid of those parts.)
- Then gently separate your curls to give your hair volume. (Aren't you glad that you two strand twisted the root? It makes separating the curl soooo much easier and prevents frizz!)
- Mist the curls with hair spray. (Try a light spray of Chi Enviro Flex Hold Hair Spray keeps my curls in place without making my hair crunchy. )
So what do you think? Yay or nay? (you know that I had to take a quick selfie too!)
