Scarf Method Rollerset

Scarf Method Rollerset

I haven’t made many updates about my hair in the last few weeks because I haven’t really tried anything new EXCEPT my Scarf Method and Rollerset method.  I’m loving it so much that I thought I’d share.  If you don’t know what the scarf method is check out this post.

Maybe a month or more ago between having to do work for school and planning my wedding I really didn’t have time to be messing with my hair as much as I normally would.  That day I was looking for the quickest dirtiest hair fix like a junkie on withdrawals – bad analogy I know.  That’s when I thought I would just do the scarf method BUT how was I going to avoid the poofy mess that was inevitable if I left it open to air dry?  You think relaxed hair can’t accomplish an afro?  Think again!  That’s exactly what my hair resembles when I leave it to air dry opened.

I’ve done the scarf method and wet bun method before but my French Knot attachment died and I didn’t think my hair had the length to do a neat bun.  How the heck was I going to accomplish something easy that would still make me look professional in the workplace?  Caught between wanting a quick easy fix for my hair but still being cognizant of the poof that was inevitable if I left it to air dry, I came up with the Scarf Method Rollerset.  I’m probably not the first person to try this, but I’d never seen it before and I’m not about to discredit my eureka moment so let me wallow in “my” invention please! lol


Instead of just leaving my hair open to airdry, I did the scarf method (well I just use a headband) and then rollerset the exposed hair .  The results?  A-FRICKING-Mazing!!!  My hair had a ton of body, the curls were fantabulous (in my opinion anyway) and *bonus* “I was able to wear them all week until my next wash day!!!”. Could it get any better?  Not really unless my hair had sprouted a couple more inches in the process.  I was so happy with the results that 4 or so weeks later I’m still using this method to manage my 9 week hair.  It works great and I absolutely love it.  Has anyone else tried this before?  How did it work out for you?

  3. I have never seen this method of rollersetting before. I am currently in a rollersetting challenge and I can’t wait to try this. I can definitely see how this could benefit me especially for the tighter curls and my uneven bangs. I am so excited to roller set tomorrow.Plus, I can even sleep in the curls and I don’t have to worry about styling the front to look professional. Thanks for sharing. Can you hear/ read my excitement?!?! I can’t wait to try this tomorrow. I know this will make a stretch much more sophisticated without buns.

    • Lol LaQT. I’d never seen or heard of it before either but I just invented it one day probably out of both necessity and shear laziness lol. I like using this method when my new growth starts to misbehave around week 5-6. Let me know how it works out for you. I’m excited for you too!!! 🙂

  5. I tried this set yesterday evening. It came out wonderful. I wish I would’ve taken more pics before the curls fell. I wore this look to work and it was extremely foggy outside and I didn’t use setting lotion. I loved it though. I will wear clipped up since it will be raining all week. I will definitely keep this as a go to when stretching relaxer. I’m gonna post pics on my blog.
