Roller setting relaxed hair is so rewarding but so time consuming. In this post, I feature the ponytail roller setting technique which is a quicker method for roller setting your hair.
Ponytail Roller Setting Relaxed Hair
Ponytail roller setting follows the same preparation as traditional roller setting. I wash, condition, apply leave in conditioner as normal.
To cut down on drying time, I air dry to 75% dry before roller setting my hair. Hair in its wet state is weaker than hair in its dry state. Therefore, air drying to 75% minimizes manipulation when roller setting relaxed hair.
Lightly Dampen My Hair
I add a little water to my hair by misting it lightly before smoothing it back into one low ponytail at the nape. I separate the ponytail in 4 to 5 sections with placing a roller on each section.
After roller setting my hair, I saturate my entire head with water. Making it soaking wet helps the set come out smoother. I prefer doing it this way vs. roller setting my hair while soaking wet hair to minimize breakage during manipulation. I then sit under the dryer until my hair is completely dry.
Capelli Care Halo Rollers Assessment
I use to roller set my hair often but fell out of the habit. I seriously got tired of the long drying sessions. I then gravitated to doing ponytail roller sets to save time and hair strands because it’s less manipulation.
In the beginning, I was using magnetic rollers and while they worked fine, it took up to an hour to dry. I’ve been in the market for new rollers for sometime now. When I was given the opportunity to review the Capelli rollers, I was excited.
These rollers feature an open roller design which allows air to freely flow through the rollers which cuts drying time in half. My hair now dries in 35 minutes or less.
The rollers have a ridged design which I did not find damaging to my hair. Instead, it created straighter roots because the ridges provide just enough tension on the hair to stretch the roots.
