I have naturally thick hair that's (unnaturally) pretty damaged. It's kind of frizzy curly if I leave it alone so I have to style it within an inch of it's life, and that tends to be straight rather than curly. I tend to backcomb it or use rollers for a night out to add volume. When I was asked to try Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers I was VERY enthusiastic. Heated rollers are something I wanted to try but didn't really know where to start to as as there's a lot out there and they range so much in price.
I didn't want a ringlety or permed look, just a natural volume wave/curl type of hairstyle. Curling my hair with tongs annoys me and doing it with bendy rollers never ever looks right, nor does drying it with a diffuser.
I've used these quite a few times now. They're really easy to use, even for a hair dunce like my good self. You just heat them up, then roll sections as you would with a normal set of velcro rollers, then clip using the clips provided (which are actually really helpful, I don't know if I'd have been patient enough to use kirby grips or something). To do my whole head probably takes 10-15 minutes overall - curling with tongs takes me about 45 and always looks too ringlety for me - so add on 2 minutes for heating up time and you're easily looking at under 20 minutes. Once they're in, they feel pretty secure and there are more than enough to do my full hair. I experiemented a bit with section sizes and found I prefer to do larger sections with each roller where I can. Here I am looking a bit moody in my rollers (I had the larger ones at the roots of my hair, and the smaller ones underneath):
Can you tell I hate having my photo taken!! I then give my curls a quick spritz with some hairspray (an Aussie one, I love the smell of it) and I'm good to go. The curls stay in really well. I'm ridiculously impressed with these, just wish I'd tried them out sooner as they'd have saved a lot of frustrating time trying to curl my hair for hours and then having to put it up anyway as I hate the way it looks! I think they're well worth £74.99, especially as they come with a 3 year guarantee (I think I'm on my third pair of GHD's now....)
