Q&A: Mesh Rollers

Okay. I am soooo late with these questions from my mesh roller set posts, it's shameful! I was originally planning on doing a video, but since I KILLED my camera while trying to do a relaxer video (and I'm too poor to buy a new one right now! #collegestudentincome!) I will have to try to explain as best I can with pictures taken on my phone...

EbonyCPrincess asks:
Do you put your end papers on the roller or on your hair? HELPPPPPP!
Ebony, I put the end papers on my actual hair. I pull the end paper allll the way to the end of the section of soaking we hair and hold it down, length wise, with my index finger. After my hair is secured on the roller, I proceed to rolling it up as normal, taking care to hold on to my hair as I roll (since the hair doesn't "stick" like it does to magnetic rollers). Here is a pictorial demonstration:

Carolyn asks:
I never came across mesh rollers before. Do they have a smooth finish or are they rough to the touch?
The rollers themselves are NOT smooth to the touch. They basically consist of a net-like, mesh covering over a wire (kind of like a slinky) frame. HTH!

Alx asks:
Do you think the mesh rollers work better than the regular magnetic snap rollers?
I've never used snap-on rollers. I will say that I prefer mesh rollers to magnetic rollers because of the drying time. I'm able to achieve an almost identical look to magnetics with half the drying time. However, I will say that magnetic rollers give me better curly looks (if I'm not planning on combing out the curls) because the hair lays sooo smooth on them. However, after getting the hang of mesh rollers, I can roll my hair on them much faster than magnetic rollers! Overall, I think that neither is "better", it's just based on your personal preference. HTH!!


  1. Great post! I may give Mesh rollers a try.

  2. I'm not a regular rollersetter, but might if I ever flatiron my hair.

  3. Because of you and MrsDoingMe2011, I'm buying mesh rollers this week!

  4. @MsD: Get 'em girl!!! =)

    @jeni:Get them!! I wish I would have discovered them sooner! (and now I'm tempted to dish out the dough for the blue "french" ones!)

The products that I use are bought with my own money unless other wise stated and are for personal use. I am not paid to show any products on this blog! Results are on MY hair, but that does not guarantee that products/methods/techniques will work the same for you (though I HOPE they do!!) Happy Hair Growing!!
