  1. 1

    Shampoo hair with curl-enhancing shampoo if needed. This isn't necessary for people with naturally curly hair.

  2. 2

    Style hair while wet or damp. Apply setting lotion over the entire head and comb through.

  3. 3

    Begin at the back of the hair and roll small sections of hair onto rollers, using clips to hold them in place.

  4. 4

    Allow hair to air dry or sit under a hooded dryer until hair is completely dry.

  5. 5

    Remove rollers and use rattail comb to backcomb each section of hair. This helps to create an afro texture.

Tips and warnings

  • People with tight curls may not need to set and roll their hair. They can simply shampoo it, condition it and allow it to air dry.
  • Avoid using petroleum-based products on the hair. These heavy products tend to attract dirt and lint.
