So i bought the Remington hot rollers, 20 in the box. I tried them exactly as it was mentioned on the instruction book, i did an updo and in 3 hours the curls were gone. Gotta mention that i don’t have straight hair, i have naturally wavy hair so i don’t get why. My hair lenght is smething around a half of my back, better say longer than where my breast finishes. (sorry for the way i explain, i’m not a native eglish speaker). Any other bee out there with this problem? Are the hot roller not that good or it’s the hair that doesn’t stay curled.

Did you use any hair products or hair spray?

I always used a little smidgen of hairspray when I put my long (very fine) hair up in curls. Maybe that would help you?
Spritz the hair -> Roll -> Set -> Stay, hopefully?

Hot rollers don’t work very well for me. They’re just not hot enough. A curling iron works better. I have thick, very straight hair.
When I got married, my stylist used a flat iron to curl my hair and put this stuff in it as well. The curls stayed all night. I need to buy a flat iron now so I can do it at home.

@aliona.deszynska: Depending on how thick your hair is, you very likely may need to use two full sets of rollers to achieve the look you’re seeking. When my former stylist did my hair for my wedding, he definitely used more than one set of hot rollers, and my hair is nowhere near as long as yours is.
Also, its possible that you need to have some product in your hair prior to the application of the heat. My stylist sprayed my hair with something before he inserted the rollers.
In addition, what kind of clips are you using? Often, those little “U-shaped” pieces of wire are not very good at holding the roller in place. I prefer the clips that you can grab and squeeze and clip over the hot roller.
Finally, a good set must be done with each roller sitting in what professional hair stylists will refer to as “on base,” so that it’s in the prime position to give you the right kind of curl.
Oh, one last thing, it’s important to leave the rollers in your hair until they cool and the curl has time to “set.”
I haven’t used hot rollers in my hair in many years, but that’s all that I can think of that may be helpful to you.

@strawbabies: When I had my hair done in an updo for my DSD’s wedding, the stylist used a flat iron to curl mine, too. I LOVED it! I have a flat iron, but I’ve never tried using it to curl my hair. I’m thinking that it would take too long and that I couldn’t do the back very well by myself using that tool.

Thanks for advices, i did use hairstyle and some heat protector. I have some kind of clips and also some kind of u shaped clips that i don’t use, i kept them for 30 min but maybe they weren’t cold enough when i took them out. I’m thinking if they are hot enough for my hair. I don’t have really thick hair but i do have a nice ammount of hair in my head. I change the country i live in and the structure of my hair changed, because of really high humidity. i had more of a dryer hair than thin, it looks like satin now, can’t tease it either. Could it be the lenght blamed for that? my husband thinks it might be too heavy and it just falls. I tend to think it’s the humidity that changed the structure if something like that exists. any shampoo out there that could help me get a fuller hair? i mean in the way of more “fluffy” ?

@strawbabies: I’ve always curled my hair when i was a teen with a curling iron but not made from ceramic, iron, and it was holding really well. few years ago i bought a ceramic curling iron, a large barell, i’m not sure how much but i think 1,8 inches?! and it also does not hold. i was thinking to cut my hair a bit but i don’t have enough braveness, i’ve always had long hair so i don’t see myself with a shorter hair.

Try using more product and keeping the clips in longer. They may have not been cool enough.

@aliona.deszynska: I use hot rollers all the time. I usually keep them in my hair for 20 minutes or so. I’m growing my hair out and it’s a little shorter than arm pit length right now. My curls last all day but they do fall and looked like tossed curls after a few hours. However, that’s the look I like, flowing tossed curls.
