I think that heat tools pretty much suck the moisture out of the hair, since the heat evaporates the water in your hair. Obviously there’s lots of heat-protectant spray and such, but I believe that it’s better to prevent it from happening than having to try to “heal” it after the damage has occurred.
I tried the whole “sleep-with-your-hair-wet-in buns” but really, my fine hair loses any type of volume and it just becomes super flat and limp. One of my favorite fashion bloggers, Wendy Nguyen (from Wendy’s Lookbook), had a video where she used Caruso Hair Steam Setter to create curls.

I got really curious and I was able to get my hands on the Caruso Hair Steamer from Amazon for a very good price: cad$35.44 (tax included) for the Professional 30 rollers set. I think it’s more expensive now, but still, pretty cheap
So, the rollers are made from foam and you heat it up using water. How it works is that the heated water evaporates, causing hot steam that seep through the foam rollers. You put your hair on these rollers, wait for 3-minute (or leave it on when you do your makeup), and voila! Volume and curls!
These rollers don’t give much volume. It gives just enough and I love how the curls end up. I also feel that since it uses steam, it does less damage to the hair. It actually gives the hair more moisture instead of sucking the moisture out of it.
The rollers are also waaay cheaper than the Babyliss hot rollers or The O velcro hot rollers. If you’re just starting or want to give rollers a try, you should keep this roller set in mind. I love the big bouncy curls and how I don’t have to put extra styling product on my hair.
Please keep in mind that I purchased this using my own money and I’m not sponsored by Caruso.
