Ready, set, go!

Having been gifted with thick hair, I am constantly working on techniques to dry my hair quick quick quick. A perfect set (at home) is generally time consuming, leaving you with rollers in your hair for hours. Although I like the idea of nipping to the shops in your rollers, sometimes you want to show off your lovingly set locks when shopping for toilettries in Asda.
I was told by a collegue that a portable hair bonnet would give me a helping hand in the setting department. And by golly it did! This morning I put my rollers in at 7.15am (which took 9 minutes) and by 7.25am the hood dryer was on. (It attaches over your hairdryer, very easy.) I was able to eat breakfast, put on my makeup AND sort out ebay emails whilst my silver space helmet warmed my set through. By 7.50 I was dryed and ready to go. A revelation!!
 A perfect set from wet to dry in no less than 35 minutes!
Ignore how stupid you look- every girl needs a silver space helment dryer thingy.

Love as always, Lucille x.

  2. After seeing the results, I now want one. Much more space efficient than the in-chair, vintage ones I've been looking at, and less likely to actually microwave my brain. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I've wanted one of those for a while, but I since I have gotten used to sleeping in rollers it has become easier to just put them in before bed. Would be great for getting ready for an unexpected night out though!

  4. i am curious as to how wet your hair was when you started. i have a chair dryer (space-helmet style bonnet) and find that if i start with truly wet and not just damp hair, it still takes a long time (like 2 hours) to dry. from your pic, it looks like this might be better at really getting to the hair than the chair dryer.

  8. Kristoise; I like to blast dry my hair for no longer than a minute before putting the rollers in. (basically so it's not dripping wet.) However cool the in-chair dryers look, alot of valuable air is lost. The portable hood dryers have a drawerstring, so that every little bit of air is kept inside the hood. I think that is why it is more effective. Hope this helps!

  12. Wow, this looks so handy for thick hair! I use hot rollers usually as I always forget/am too lazy to set my hair the night before but like to have an array of hair options available, so might think about one of these.

    I just found your blog and LOVE it after reading just one post and your little profile description, thanks for such a lovely blog to read :)
