If you love getting a blowout, but don’t have the time (or budget) to visit your local hair salon every week, this list of the best Velcro rollers is about to be a major game-changer. No, seriously. Velcro rollers — and rollers in general — may seem old-school, but with them, you can smooth, straighten, volumize, or curl your hair while you go about the rest of your morning routine. That, and they don’t cause any damage to your hair. Talk about a win-win!
Velcro rollers, which are self-gripping and stay in place without any help from clips, pins, or wraps, work with all hair types, but are especially game-changing for breakage-prone hair, because they don’t need to be clipped in or used with heat. If you don't know how to use velcro rollers, don't worry — they couldn't be easier. When considering what type to buy, you should think about the results you want and the hair you have. For tight curls or waves that resemble what you'd get with a curling iron, opt for small rollers. If, instead, you just want to add volume to your roots or crown, try adding a vertical row of large or medium-sized rollers from your forehead back (two or three should do it). To straighten and smooth out your hair while still gaining volume, cover your head with large-sized rollers and roll them under and toward the scalp when your hair is about 80 percent dry.
However you choose to use them, Velcro hair rollers are seriously hassle-free — you can even sleep in them! So check out these five foolproof options, below.
