Meet the products that help me style out my damaged unruly hair.

I don’t often heat style my hair because it’s damaged enough as it is due to my long history of bleach and dying, however very occasionally I am known to pop some rollers in my hair. I think some people are a bit daunted by the idea of heated rollers but trust me they are super simple to use, create a lovely natural curl and you won’t accidentally burn your hand on a curling tong.
It’s not necessary to wash your hair before heat styling but I love to prep my hair right from the very beginning. The Green People Quinoa and Artichoke Shampoo helps restore the shine to my hair and the quinoa proteins nourish the damaged ends and the matching conditioner helps smooth any frizz. Once I’m out of the shower and towel dried my hair, I switch the rollers on to start heating up and whilst I wait I pop a good amount of Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse on and brush it through, this gives your hair extreme, lasting volume, without the sticky feeling that some mousses leaves you with. I then blow dry thoroughly before making sure my parting is where I want and that my hair is knot free.
Now comes the fun bit, I spritz a bit of heat protect spray onto my locks and then it’s time to start rolling. Section off a bit of hair and hold it high above your hair, put the roller at the end and roll inwards until it reaches your head, then secure with clip. I tend to only use the big and medium size rollers but they do give you smaller ones if you have a sneaky bit of hair that escapes or you want tighter curls. I don’t get fussy with where the rollers are or how big the sections of hair are because I want natural finish not uniform ringlets. Once it’s all clipped up, relax have a cup of tea, do your make up, dance around your room singing The Greatest Showman very loudly until the rollers have complete cooled.
Carefully un-roll each curl starting from the ones at the bottom of your hairline and working your way up to the top. Then I just run my fingers through my hair and soften the ends with the Percy & Reed No Oil Oil and I’m good to go. I find that once I’ve done my hair the curls will stay in for about 3 days (until I next wash my hair) which is great if you are a lazy girl like me. I do love a conical wand however, I find that rollers create less of an obvious curl as well as a lovely bounce to hair, I personally think it’s a lot less time consuming way of staying your hair.
Are you more of a heated rollers or a curling tong type of person?
