Hair question for the hair experts.

I'm clueless when it comes to styling my hair, but I bought some of these:

because I wanted to try something new with my hair. I thought that if I bought them and used them, I could maybe get those awesome big wavy curls that people with long hair get/have. My only problem: I don't have a clue how to use them. I have pretty thick hair and it's decently wavy and pretty frizzy, as well. I know I can't roll them in when my hair is wet, fresh out of the shower. Do I put them in when it's damp? But then, will my hair dry? Or, do I put them in when my hair is dry? HELP! Any tips are highly appriciated... especially since "fixing my hair" is really only running a straightner through it. I'm so clueless.

  • Oh god. Those look tricky. Hopefully pinksprkl will see these, because I'll bet she'd know what to do. At least I think it's her that knows these things. :)

    That's who I was hoping for! Ha! Unless there is another hair expert running around here that I don't know about!

  • Dani would probably know too.

    My best bet would be to 1/2 way dry your hair then roll it and finish blow drying.

  • Good question...I want to know how to use those as well. I have sort of the smae type of hair you do...wavy and sort of frizzy. But I really hope Dani comes to the rescue here!

  • Pinksprkl, at your service. Ok, you have some options here. It is probably going to take a little trial and error. Since you said your hair is kind of frizzy, you may need to run the flat iron through your hair first, in sections and then immediately put the rollers in while your hair is still hot. You might also try to mostly dry it and use some smoothing serum and put the rollers in but I worry that it would take forever to dry. When people ask me about getting those big waves, I suggest a large barrel curling iron or hot rollers. When I do mine like that, I just use the flat iron to curl it and usually do it after a day so it isn't freshly washed. Have fun playing and hair spray is your friend!!
