Steps to Use Velcro Rollers for Curls

Comb Your Hair

Comb your hair once again, to remove any chinks and knots. Now slightly dampen your hair using a smoothing serum, and spread the serum evenly, all over your hair.
You could also simply wash your hair like you usually do, allow it to dry partially, after which you may use a broad toothed comb, to untangle your hair. The damp hair will eventually dry, allowing the hair to set around the roller and create lasting curls.

Divide Hair in Sections

Separate your hair into sections, depending on how thick or fine you would like your curls to be.
Taking thicker sections would make broader and more voluminous curls or waves. Thinner hair sections will give you finer and sleeker curls. If you have fine and dense hair, you must use bigger curlers, for the hair to set properly.
If your hair growth is not very dense, you must use smaller rollers in order to add more volume. You can also use rolls of various sizes, to add a natural appeal to your curly hairstyle.

Roll Each Section

Take each section of hair and use a soft butterfly clip to secure a section of hair near the scalp.
Take the Velcro roller and simply start rolling your hair from the tip (inward/outward), until you reach close to the scalp. The roller will hold fast and will not open up on its own. However, if you are making bigger curls, it would be preferable to secure the roller using a second butterfly clip.
Repeat this procedure with the rest of the sections, until the entire hair has been neatly rolled and secured in place.

Blow Drying

Since your hair is slightly damp, it gives you the opportunity to dry it using heat/cold drying. Dry each section with warm air for about 1 minutes each, after which you must switch to cold-drying.
The cool air will help the curls set properly so as to make them last longer, without opening up. Apply cold air for 3-4 minutes for each section of hair.

Let the Rolls Stay

Allow your hair to set dry for about 15-30 minutes on a less busy day. This will make the curls more prominent and less temporary. You can easily flaunt the curly wavy look for the next 2-3 days, without washing.

Unclip and Remove Rolls

Remove all the butterfly clips before you attempt to unroll the curlers. To remove the curlers from your hair, simply roll out the Velcro rollers.
Run your fingers through your hair to set them, and never comb them immediately after removing the curlers, as that would spoil the hairstyle.

Cleaning Velcro Rollers

With every use, these rollers will catch strands of broken hair, residue from hair serum and other hair products. These hair rollers need to be cleaned every week, by soaking them in soapy lukewarm water. You can also rub two Velcro rollers with each other, in order to remove dust, fiber, and hair, after every use.
Using Velcro rollers can help you add extra volume to your hair without adding any curls. Using big curlers add bounce and volume to the hair. What makes these curlers such an excellent choice is that they are quick to use, give instant results, and last for several years, if taken care of!
