For all those who expressed interest in the saga of my hair and the outcome of the roller experiment, this is how it went.
I brought home my eight medium-sized pink foam hair rollers from Rite Aid and almost couldn’t wait to begin experimenting, however, I contained myself and waited for the following day. As is my norm, I showered in the morning, washed and conditioned my hair. After towel drying, (apparently not enough), I rolled all my soaken wet hair in said rollers. Then I did a few exercises and dressed. No worry about exercising after showering, I never work up a sweat. Heaven forbid.
Ok, I figured I had been patient long enough, so I pulled the rollers out of my still very wet hair. Well, duh, I couldn’t wait all day for my hair to dry, and I certainly wasn’t going to go running around with these pink spongy rollers in my hair. Needless to say, when it dried completely my hair frizzed.
Day two, I let my hair dry completely then spritzed a little bit of water on it and rolled just the sides and top layer of the back. Dressed for the evening then unrolled my hair. Rollers were in for about ten minutes, just enough time for the spritz of water to dry.
Miracle of all miracles, I combed it out gently. The curls were still underneath, but that gave it some body. Top layers were nice and smooth with a little bit of wave. Even my friend Carol, who does not throw roses, said it looked nice!
It is with some trepidation that I will attempt to duplicate this procedure. Wish me luck.
