There are quite a few advantages that come from styling with hair rollers compared to flat irons, curling irons, or blow dryers. First, is that it reduces the chance of heat damage, since your hair will not contact direct heat from the metal. Hair roller methods also leads to better moisture retention as well as longer lasting styles. Another reason why hair rollers are great is that they let you style and do other things at the same time. It doesn’t require much work as you can simply set it and leave it in while your go about your morning routine.
Hair rollers come in both heated and non-heated varieties. For the latter, you will need to either let it air dry after treating your hair, or use a blow dryer to set in the style. Some things to look out for in hair rollers is what material it is made from, the size of the rollers, how easy it is to apply, and how quickly it heats up if applicable. Ideally, the best hair roller is tailored specifically for your hair texture, length, and thickness.
