As a rollersetting enthusiast I have long been tempted by Vented Hourglass rollers. What some call Ethiopian or conici rollers I called a challenge.
I placed an order Thursday with http://capellicare.com and Monday I had a package of brand new rollers.
In this experiment I :
- Started with freshly deep conditioned hair
- Used no setting/holding product
- Used only my fingers to part and detangle
- Used no end papers
I skipped many steps to judge the true performance of the rollers less products.
I deep conditioned my hair with aubrey organics honeysuckle rose for 2 hours without heat.
Once rinsing I applied a leave in conditioner and sectioned my hair into a Mohawk pattern.Because I only used my fingers to part my pattern was off, but for the bun I plan to where that was okay with me.
I decided to skip the end papers to test the website’s claim the rollers did not snag hair. I smoothed my hair with my fingers as I rolled and I must say the texture of the rollers gripped my hair tightly the first revolution. There was no slipping. No hair sliding off the roller. Just even, thorough tension. Made rolling a breeze.
I continued to roll my hair down the center and then the back sections followed by the front. The rollers fit comfortably. And while it may not look like it: my hair is in sections.
I then sat under the dryer for exactly 60 mins.
To my shock, amazement, awe and sheer surprise my hair was completely dry.
MY HAIR TOOK ONE HOUR TO DRY
This is a huge improvements from my two hours with grey magnetic rollers.
I was thrilled with my greatly reduced dry time and the results.
When I unrolled the rollers weren’t stuck to my hair. In fact when I removed the duck clips many rollers fell out by gravity alone. Each roller formed strong ringlets.
I was impressed how well the rollers straightened my ends. From previous post you may know i have had an issue with my ends staying curly, but not with these rollers! The rollers did leave behind a slight indent, but the pattern dissipated quickly.
I finger comb the ringlets and was rewarded with:
I am very happy with my results and plan to incorporate my normal holding products and parting routine my next set. I will say the rollers also caused no noticeable breakage!
Challenged accepted and accomplished!
