There are many types of rollers available, such as Magnetic, Foam, Plastic mesh, hot rollers & Velcro rollers. We would be discussing Velcro rollers from Faces today.
Self grip rollers are also called Velcro rollers. Velcro is a trademark used for a fastening tape consisting of a strip of nylon with a surface of minute hooks that fasten to a corresponding strip with a surface of uncut pile.
We call these Velcro rollers but they usually are made of a plastic mesh that only acts like Velcro. The hair clings to the mesh just like Velcro clings to itself. These rollers usually require no extra clips or pins to keep them in place. If your hair is very long or thick, the rollers will stay firmer with the use of roller clips. Since these rollers are on a hard plastic frame they retain their shape and size with extended use. They will stay put while drying and they will release from your hair without tangling.
What Faces say about the product: Use for soft and attractive curls
Price: 135/- for a pack of 6 rollers
How to use them: I am a novice in using hair rollers but still I admire the ease with which these rollers provide soft curls n bounce to my hair. Self Grip Style Rollers are easy to use. The key to using them safely is to make sure they are installed properly. Wash and condition your hair as you normally would. Avoid using shampoos and conditioners designed for straight hair for the best results. Towel dry your hair to barely damp. These rollers will also work on dry hair; however, damp hair will produce curl with better hold and bounce. The roller should be used like a brush to smooth the section that it will be placed in. Then just take this roller & start rotating the brushed section of your hair (from the end) onto it till it touches your head. Apply a little strength while rolling up your hair so that it grips the hair firmly and even remain in place without use of any extra pins.
I mostly use these 6 rollers for curling my frontal head locks by just dampening a small part of them with my fingers & brushing the hair with the roller and then spinning my hair onto it. Then I take my hair dryer and use it for 3-4 minutes to dry out the dampness from the curled hair fully and all ready to remove the rollers.
I wanted to put a picture of mine with these rollers on but I found the pics so funny that didn’t place them in my post. 😛 😀
When you’re ready to remove the Self Grip Rollers it’s important to note that you must roll them out in the same direction you rolled them in. Do not try and slide them out like other rollers or your hair could tangle and break. That is the common mistake people make with them. And then you can easily get nice curls and even they add volume to your hair.
You can see my pics below: Before and After(taken on different days so dress change) using these rollers. The 3rd snap is specially for Naina & Noopur who complimented on FB that I look like Bhagyashree in it :P. Hugs and kisses to both of you.
Pros of the Faces Self Hold rollers
• Ease of use. Anyone can use them.
• No need to even wash or condition your hair. They can be used on dry hair either clean or not 😛
• Fast way of adding volume to your hair
• Cheap and easily available. I got it from a supermarket not from a specific Faces outlet.
• Don’t bend or break. Thus can be used for a long time.
Cons of Faces Self Hold Rollers
• All rollers are of same size. They could have varied the size of the rollers.
• Ladies with long hair cannot make use of them as they’ll not grip the entire length of your hair. You require bigger rollers.
• Hair can break if get tangled in these rollers.
• Don’t give proper curls. Maybe I am not using them properly. An expert can get nice curls.
• Faces should come up with larger packs of them as we require much more than 6 rollers for getting curls in all hair.
To sum up, I like using them to add an extra volume to my hair. Even I succeed in getting soft curls which are easy & quick to achieve if you want to get ready for something special. I‘ll continue using them. 🙂
My ratings for them would be 3.5/5
Will I repurchase: Don’t think so as these will last me for long BUT certainly Yes if Faces Comes up with varied sized hair rollers.
