Need recommendation for velcro rollers

Started 1304326617.957 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1304854226.083 by rebel

I love using velcro rollers, but I am tired of them pulling my hair out, no matter how delicately I try to remove them from my hair. I've tried two different brands so far, and found no difference. I have recently gone back to hot rollers, but wow, I forgot how hot those things really get!

Do velcro rollers exist that don't pull your hair out? Anyone have any recommendations for a brand they found that are nice? I just love them, but can't keep losing my hair. Thanks in advance!

I have some from Avon. I love them. My hair,even though very think,will not hold hot rollers. I gave velcro a try, was surprised how well they work.

Thanks for the info. I've also been looking for velco rollers and had no idea Avon carried them.

I love velcro rollers and have some from Nick Chavez and Sally Beauty. Neither one of them pull my hair and my hair is fine to medium.

Sally's carries them. I still have some older ones with metal on the insides - they work great for fine, no-body hair.

You do have to be careful when unrolling them. Even when first rolling them make sure the hair is combed through.

I wash my hair, towel dry, put some mousse on, comb through it and roll, then dry with hair drier and I've got all the body/curl I want.

I would never sleep in them - ouch!!

I have velcro rollers from two different sources, Wal Mart and Sally's. I think they are the same. I've never tried more expensive ones. This thread is one of those walks down memory lane, I vividly remember sleeping on brush rollers EVERY SINGLE NIGHT of high school. What were we thinking?

depglass, thanks for a trip down memory lane. I used them every night as well. I obviously wasn't thinking. Lol

My velcro rollers were purchased at the drugstore about 10 years ago. They do not pull out my hair.

I well remember those brush rollers - had to hold them in with a plastic "pick" that would leave a little dent in your head - LOL!!

I used to sleep in them once in a while also. And yes it was totally uncomfortable. But then I used beer as a setting product, put lemon juice in my blonde hair and sat in the sun with my mercuricome (sp?) and oil blend!

I'm thinking we did it to attract the boys, get dates - were they worth it???

Those were the days! {#emotions_dlg.blink}

I believe I bought mine from a dollar store and they don't pull my hair out and I have fine, thin hair.

Surely you know better than that. Some people do it and have beautifully styled hair. Probably more than you realize. Wash and wear hair.........not flattering on most people, and blow-dry styles don't look good on everyone.

If I have a morning "event", I wash and dry my hair the night before, then sleep on velcro rollers. I use a neck pillow so have no problem with the rollers. It beats getting up extra early in the morning to do my hair.

Me too, just brush out a little spray and I am out the door. Way easier for me, my hair is shoulder lenghth and very thick , it takes less effort his way, I realize that this is not for everyone but for me it works{#emotions_dlg.unsure}

I think there is only one actual Velcro roller. The others are velcro-like. The only place I've found them is online and at Sally's. I don't have a problem with them pulling my hair out. They're not cheap, but last such a long time.

yea, for the idea of the neck pillow!! I'd rather have stuff done the night before rather than have to do stuff in the AM....thanks ladies!!!!!!!!!!1

Velcro rollering my hair does take a lot longer, that's why I don't do it very often. If I want to velcro roller my hair before work, it's an extra 45 minutes.

I cannot sleep in those rollers nor would I ever want too. Not dissing those who do but I don't want my DH to look over at me sleeping with a head full of rollers.

Queen of posts... I don't want my DH to look over at me sleeping with a head full of rollers.

This is too cute! I roll my hair as soon as I get out bed,Then brush teeth & apply make up. Last thing I do is take my hair down.

I married my husband BEFORE there were blow dryers. At least I didn't use rollers on our wedding night.

Thanks, everyone, for your responses. I'm surprised that more women haven't had the trouble that I have had with my hair being pulled out by these rollers. The hair rolls itself around the roller, and every once in a while I have to spend a few minutes cleaning the hair off of them--it's terrible.

I do set my hair dry with them, and use a setting spray. Nick Chavez always did this on air with his "flocker" spray--and that is where I got the idea. It's a fast, wonderful way to get body and/or curl without using a heated appliance, and since the rollers stick so easily, I can put them in in no time at all. Plus, you can remove them in 10 minutes or so, when the spray has set. That said, I think I'm going to look for a better quality roller. My first set was very heavy, and I do think that they are the "originals." Not thin plastic like the ones I have now. Maybe they will work better. I do have rather fine hair, so maybe that's why I have more trouble than most.

Do try this technique if it sounds like you might like it. Works great for short and medium length hair.
