There are different ways that you can curl your hair one is it can be achieved by the use of hair rollers. Two of the methods are known as off base and on base. Off base is when the hair roller is applied and the hair is curled over the top of the roller and the result will be little or no lift. The second (on base) is where the hair is curled over the top and there will be a resulting style with maximum lift and body. Before using rollers there are some stages that need to be undertaken to ensure that you get the best possible results, following these stages will provide you with a good basis to get the required curl.
Before starting out make sure that you wash your hair thoroughly and apply styling products that are required such as a good moose or gel. Once this has been completed then be sure to dry fully and make sure there are no damp areas underneath. Once these two parts have been completed then you are ready to start using the rollers.
Firstly take a fairly large section of the hair and roll it onto the rollers, some people like to use clips to keep the hair in place; however this should not be necessary. Once all the hair has been rolled then take your hairdryer and heat the rollers, then let them cool down before removing the rollers. There are some extra tips that can be followed in order that you can get extra body into your style.
One of the best methods to achieve the extra body is to heat the hair up with either a curling iron or a flat iron before you roll onto the rollers. If you want to achieve the maximum body and get more control over the hair then you can apply products before putting it onto the rollers. It is usually recommended to leave the hair for around five to fifteen minutes on the rollers before removing to allow time for the hair to set in the correct position. Once you have removed them it is important that you use only your hands or a large pic to comb the hair out, if you use a standard comb or brush you could affect the rolls.
There are many different size rollers on the market and which ones you use will depend on the style that you will achieve. In general the rule of thumb is lots of small rollers will give you more curl and make your hair a great deal fuller. Lots of large rollers will give your hair the fuller look and the fewer number of large rollers used will result in some fullness and shape. As can be seen from the article there are many different methods that can be used to achieve different results, following some of these guidelines will provide you with the basis to get your desired hair style.
