Back to Gray Rollers !!! * Happy Dance Again*

My hair can fit on gray rollers !!!I haven't used them since I was relaxed. Do you have any idea how excited I was to see that ?!?!?!?! TOO EXCITED !! hehehehehehehe !!

I hadn't done a rollerset on large rollers since March or April of 2009. I had a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when they were in. After more than a year of waiting, I'm able to pick back up where I left off.

Let me tell you, I would have never known that my hair could fit because whenever my hair is wet, there is alot of shrinkage. I started off saying to myself, "let's try and get a gray one in to see how much longer of a wait I have...." I put the roller in the very center front of my forehead. Well to my surprise, it worked !! I could wrap the hair around 1 and half times LOL... that was enough though !! The front of my hair is the shortest, I constantly dust my hair there because of the difference in textures. I need to stop though because there aren't any problems such as breakage or splits. I don't know why I like to snip so much.

Once I saw that first roller could fit securely, it was a WRAP... I knew I could do the rest of my hair too !!

I rolled my hair up and sat under the dryer. My boss called me in and so I had to cut my dry session short. I was upset, but money trumps a rollerset for right now!!!! lol... Here was the results after taking the rollers out too soon...(they didn't look that bad though)

I just wrapped my hair and wore a wig to work. The whole time I was at work, I kept thinking how excited I was to get home and finish though !!!

The next morning I did a saran wrap treatment under my hood dryer....

.... and then I asked my grandmom to press my hair out. Here are my results !!! I was super happy by them. Please check out the youtube video I made!!

Oh and before I forget, here is a quick comparison again.

This is a 7 month time period. I'm very pleased !! You can reference the blog on the February flat iron by clicking here
