Hi, I'm Jazmayne Chatman, representing gLaM sQuAd LA. Today, I'm going to demonstrate how to do roller sets on African-American hair. So, when you roller set African-American hair, the tools that are necessary are rollers. You want to be mindful of the different sizes for the length of hair. Miss Brandy has long hair, so we're going with red and purple. You need clips for your sections, depending on the style that you wear your hair in. So, anywhere from four to eight clips are necessary. And, you want to have hairpins to secure the roller, once you've gotten it wrapped around the hair. A water bottle, and a comb. Okay, so, when roller setting black hair, you want to be mindful that there's a curl pattern, a wave, or a kink of some sort that you're trying to get out of the hair. So, you want to be mindful to ribbon the hair like so, and put enough tension to where it doesn't hurt the client, but you can still see the curl coming out of the hair. She has a little bit down here, so I'll comb it up to help get it straight and consistent with the rest of her hair. And, take the roller, that's the same section, and width as the piece of hair that I'm going to wrap. Secure the ends, and with tension, you roll. I don't know if you can see that, but I'm pulling and rolling at the same time to ensure that the curl is out. Then, you take your hairpin, and secure it at the base towards the scalp. And, that's how we roller set African-American hair.
