TOOL REVIEW: CASUAL CURL ROLLERS
When I received my package from Casual Curl it included 8 rollers and clips to hold the rollers in place. I brought them to Salon NOVA and my first experience was challenging. Any time I use something new it takes me a few attempts to feel confident. I used them on medium to long length hair with layers. I love the concept they have created with the CasualCurl, they are very easy to apply to the hair, but I regret to say I ran in to quiet a few challenges on my first go around. I wasn't exactly sure how to determine if I've heated the hair up enough and when to release the blow dryer. I also found if i had the roller close to my clients scalp or skin the heat gets very hot so I was constantly holding my hand under the roller to protect my client from getting burned. I do like that the roller has a heat resistant area, but I found my self holding the roller on the opposite side. I was informed that the clips I received in my package weren't made for their roller but will help to hold in place for now until they create a clip that accurately secures the roller. As informed the clips helped, but they did not fit around the roller and also left creases in the hair.
When using the rollers I would apply all of them and then blow dry each one and then allowed them to cool. I have discovered they work best if you heat them up as you go and try not to use the clips. I also discovered that these roller are best used on lengths of fine to medium hair textures with minimum natural curl pattern unless the hair is as smooth a possible. On shorter lengths you will achieve more volume then curl. Also if you apply the roller in a vertical position you will achieve more length and curl, if you position them horizontally you will get more volume and width to your style. I believe the Casual Curl will work best for at home use on long lengths, and position your curl starting mid hair shaft. You can use these on all lengths and I encourage you to try the Casual Curl for you self and share you experience. Have fun! Stay creative! Keep learning! XO AG
