Hi everyone,

In need of some more advice. I have straight thick hair and want to know whats better to get/use. Rollers or curling iron for curls, or even waves, but not volume (that dated big hair look, cause my hair is already thick).

Can I get that with either or and what might last longer curl wise?

Thank you all!!! I want either for the weekend so your help would be great!~Very Happy

Hi:

I would suggest hot curler since it will be easier if you just roll them in your hair and wait while you are getting ready. I have thick hair myself. Everytime I am going to a party, my friend, who is a hairdresser, will spray my hair with hair spray first then put hot roller on. After she takes the roller our she will put a little more spray on. It seems to hold for the night. Just an FYI, hair does not curl well when it is too clean and conditioned. So, if you plan to curl your hair tomorrow, you might not wash your hair tonight. Hope this help

Hey girls:

I have curley hair which I sometimes get bored of so when I want to "attempt" to straighten it I used the 3" curlers that you wrap and twist. No spray or heat needed.

I would think the hair after being hair sprayed before and after hot curling will begin to dry and break and not be too healthy in the ultimate end.

But you are absolutley right, roopdh, the hair does do better when "dirty" I have found this out too.

HTH. Smile

Fantasia, you seem to have what I don't but dream to have: green eyes, curly hair, Italian love...hee hee hee...Well, it's just my jealousy sometimes get me talk nonsense...Actually I am very pleased with what I've gotten: brown eyes, straight hair, Canadian love...

Here is my point: I used to hate my silly straight hair and haved it permed in "spiral curls", the kind that they used Japanese chopsticks to curl your hair. It cost me ( actually my mom, I was only a teenager with no job then) a fortune and it ruined my fine hair to the point that I had to chop my hair off into a pixie before regrow it. So for a long time, I gave up in trying to change how I look but spend more time on enhancing what I already have: curling my hair once in while with hot rollers, wearing green contact lenses to surprise my friends at a party and asking my Canadian sweetheart to learn Italian...there I'm talking nonsense again...

you should focus on your beautiful features. but I know how you feel, funny, when i was younger, i would do all kinds of things to try to straighten my curls and then end up with a frizzie head and even tried to cut my curls off - my mom screamed--NO LIE . Once, I even splashed baking soda into my eyes to try to change my eye color.

as for my italian love, you can have him, hee hee hee

I feel curling iron is better. But it is not easy to use at first. You should practice for a while. The effect is great if you have the skill.

This will sound silly but I use a straightener to curl my hair. There is this little trick to doing it but basically you take a thin straightener and turn it (like curling) twice and then pull through. You end up with a gorgeous "s" wave. My hairdresser showed me this trick so ask the next time you visit your salon.

I have hot rollers and they're so much more time efficient than curlers. I have thick hair so where hot rollers take me 1 minute to put in and then I can run around making my morning tea etc., for curlers I have to actually stand there for 20 minutes and it just feels like such a waste of time. I think curlers give you a bit more control and might last longer, but once you learn to use the hot rollers properly, you won't care for the little difference! slash hot rollers are great for cold mornings in the Canadian winter Laughing

I think hot rollers are more convenient and my curls do seem to last a bit longer with them than with the curling iron, but like Julliams mentioned I am learning to use my flat iron to make curls and I'm loving that>

I use a flat iron on my straight hair to curl it too Confused

My first flat iron had flat plates, but the one I have now has curved plates. You can straighten your hair with it or curl. I have a T3 iron (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?cm_re=C10450*Grid*P90609&id=P90609&categoryId=C10450&shouldPaginate=true)

My hair is very thick and I find that using the flat iron is much quicker than other methods for my hair.

I have pretty curly/frizzy hair, and to tame it I blow-dry it, then use a 2 1/4 barrel roller on a section of hair then put a hot roller in it. The iron helps the cuticle lay flat, then the rollers curl the hair. I can do my hair in less than 20 mins, I think the barrel roller speeds up the process.

Heated rollers are the best in my opinion
