How to Use Big Velcro Rollers

Updated April 17, 2017

Velcro rollers are effective ways of manipulating the hair without using excessive heat. While small sections of hair with small rollers can create curls, large sections of hair with large rollers create volume. If hair is clean, dry and loaded with the right product, big Velcro rollers can create long-lasing volume in little time.

Make sure your hair is clean and dry. Spray it lightly with a volumizing spray, such as a root lifter, or run a dollop of volumizing mousse throughout your hair.

Separate your hair into five sections. Three will be on the top and middle of your head, and the other two will be on the sides. Clip each section with a sectioning clip to hold them separate.

Comb through with a wide tooth comb to detangle. Starting with the front middle sections, roll each section with a big Velcro roller, making sure that you start at the ends and roll away from the face until you reach the roots. The Velcro should hold the roller to the hair, but if it feels loose, use hair clips to hold it more securely.

Continue rolling hair from the front to back, ending with the sides. Always roll away from the face, not toward.

Blow-dry your hair on high heat, low speed to help set the hair.

Allow hair to cool for at least 10 minutes.

Gently unwind each Velcro roller from the hair. Be careful not to pull as that can cause the hair to frizz.

Tousle with your fingers or comb with a wide tooth comb. Set with hairspray.
