Thursdays Thought is a weekly feature where I choose something commonly annoying that others can relate with and write about it.
I love velcro rollers but ...
There is no quick way to remove the accumulated hair that gets stuck on them?
I spend a lot of time taking the hair off one roller at a time that I get sores on my fingers from the velcro. I know I can use a fine tooth comb, but it’s still time-consuming.
If there is any easier way, please let me know?
I use these rollers because it takes away the frizz and keeps my hair naturally wavy. The bigger rollers are what I use all over my head except for the shorter length areas like my bangs. I know you can buy hot rollers, but frankly, they are a little too much money, and a curling iron or wand does the same thing, but you still have to blow your hair dry before curling your hair. Since I don’t regularly use hot rollers or curling wands, the easiest and quickest way to do my hair is with the velcro rollers. Besides, I like the way my hair looks styled this way.
As far as I know, I have not found anything exclusively on the market in stores for cleaning Velcro rollers. I did hear how one hairstylist cleans hers and she said she has been doing it for years! She just throws them into the washing machine with a couple of towels and puts them in the dryer along with the towels on a low heat setting for a little bit. I’ve never done that, but I am concerned that this method still won’t get the hair from them.
Yes, I just finished washing some rollers in the washing machine. I was afraid they’d be destroyed that they weren’t. However, as expected, all the lint from the towels is now on the rollers! On top of the hair naturally.
