I took a few vids with my iPhone today of this shingle and curl set I'd been wanting to attempt. I started to take pictures, but they didn't do enough to explain what I was doing. So ta-da, my first poor quality YouTube videos :-)
Here I'm almost done setting the ends of my hair on large and medium sized snap on magnetic rollers. I braided my hair into 4 sections, applied castor oil to the ends and my scalp and towel blotted the excess water. I used mixed chicks leave in liberally in each 1/4 and then set small sections on the rollers using the pink Eco styler gel. Its basically a shingle set, using a brush similar to a denman. The natural separations of my own curls set up the pattern for separating the ends later. And I can set it faster and with more ease because I'm just curling the ends.
About after about 1.5 hrs under the dryer, time to take down the curlers! It dried faster (vs 2.5 hrs!) than a regular set because it was all so exposed to the air.
And now I separate the curls apart.
I'll take picts galore tomorrow when I wear it our for the day :-) I love it so far, and so does the Mr.
