Best Rollers for Your Curl


Roll With It

There are different rollers for all types of curl and wave, as well as for adding body and lift. To help sort out what to use and when, here are our suggestions for achieving the desired amount of bend, wave or volume.

In General

Before discussing the types of rollers, let’s visit a few roller basics


1. The roller size will determine how much curl, bend, wave or volume you will get. Just keep in mind, the smaller the roller, the tighter the curl. The length of your hair and the size of the section will also come into play. The longer or thicker your hair is, or the thicker the section of hair being curled, the looser the curl will be.


2. Wrap the section of hair tightly and securely around the roller, as tension creates a good curl.

Best Thermal Protectants



Best Thermal Protectants

We all have a love affair with our heated styling irons and certainly can’t imagine life without our blow dryers, however, these much-needed tools do take a toll on our precious strands. That's where thermal protectants come in. With ingredients that form a thin film on the surface of the hair, thermal protectants work to help protect hair against heat and UV damage. Although the only true way to protect hair from damage is to cover up completely when outdoors and to avoid heated tools entirely, we all know that beauty and the desire for seriously styled strands will win out every time.
