How to Use Velcro Rollers

For a sleek look all your friends will be envious of, try the good, old-fashioned Velcro roller.

  • Step 2: Blow dry Blow dry your hair completely. Using velcro rollers on wet hair can cause them to tangle and make removing them nearly impossible. Tangled velcro rollers can also break your hair, causing frizz.
  • Step 3: Section the hair Part your hair into four or five sections. Clip each section to keep them separate.

  • FACT: Velcro was invented by George de Mestral in the early 1940s. The idea came to him after walking his dog and noticing that it was covered in cockleburs. After studying the cockleburrs under a microscope, he noticed their hook-like shape.
