How To Curl Your Hair With Hot Rollers

I wanted to share my first experience using these T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe for today's blog post. Growing up, my mom always used these. She would put them in her hair, do a few things around the house or get ready, take them out after about twenty minutes and woah!! Perfect at home blow-out. It sounds super convenient, so I was excited to try them.

First I wanted to go through what this set contains. It has the charging base of coarse (which heats up super fast and has two different heat settings), four 1.5"rollers, 4 1.75" rollers, eight crease-free clips, and a storage bag to keep everything together. 


I washed my hair the night before and used this leave in conditioner before half air-drying my hair then blowdrying the rest with this blowdryer and brush combo at my roots for a tiny bit of lift. Before using the rollers, I used my heat protectant (smells AMAZING!) and sprayed this at my roots (love this stuff!). Next I split my hair in top and bottom sections, then again in four sections each, and placed the rollers in my hair in the direction I curl my hair (straight in the back and angled away from my face in the front/sides. I used the bigger ones for the bottom layers and the smaller rolls on the top making sure to really lift the roots. I started with my bottom layer and wrapped each section around the hot roller (definitely starting with the top layer next time). It's harder to explain in words, so here are some pictures so you can get the idea:


After about 20 minutes, I took each roller out one by one. It definitely lives up to its "volumizing" name! This is more of a blow out look, but there are a ton of different size rollers you can get to mix around for different looks. My hair is thicker, so I feel like a few more rollers would've helped, or I will trade the small rolls for the large size all around. I think this kit is perfect shorter/thinner hair or you can definitely get larger rollers for loose waves or smaller rollers for tighter waves. 


Let me know what you guys think. I have yet to perfect the wave especially with the front pieces but loved it way more without twisting my hair before rolling it around the hot roller. When I tried it that way it gave a good beach vibe with little crimps in the hair, so not my go-to everyday look. I'd love to hear any other tips you have on using rollers to style your hair. I'm a newbie at this so I'm excited to try different techniques.
