The barrels don’t stay in my hair.
Like any new styling tool, it might take a couple of tries to get hang of it! Hang in there- here are some tips:
- Roll hair downward or into your scalp–not up. Either pull the sections of hair up and roll the hair downward towards the scalp or pull sections of hair out and roll inward towards the scalp. Pulling the hair down and rolling upwards to the scalp increases the likelihood of catching the hair below, which can cause tangles.
- Try smaller sections. You might be trying to roll too much hair. Make sure that the section of hair is not wider than the bristle area.
- Add a little shake just before releasing the roller. This will help set the roller and prevent it from falling out of place. In order for the roller to stay secure, it must rest against the scalp. To set the roller, give it a little horizontal shake back and forth against your scalp. Make sure you feel the bristles on your scalp before releasing the roller
- Use clips to steady some rollers. If you are rolling a section of hair on the crown of your head–spanning your part (instead of each side of your part)–you may need a roller clip or clamp to hold that particular roller in place. The roller usually stays as long as you are looking forward, but I do find that if I look down the roller will fall out.
The barrels get stuck in my hair.
When used properly, the rollers will not get stuck. The short, soft bristles are designed to minimize tangling. Here are a few more tips to prevent tangling:
- Eliminate any snarls or tangles in your hair prior to styling with Click n Curl – comb your hair thoroughly with a wide-toothed comb.
- UNROLL the brush in an UP and OUT direction instead of pulling in down.
- Make sure your hair is dry and the brushes have cooled completely.
- Refrain from using hair spray until the brushes have been removed.
Do you think six is enough for my hair? Seems like I would need more.
Six is great for setting the crown of your head–which is where you’ll want to create the most volume. If you want to set your whole head, you have a couple of options.
1. Set one section of hair and then remove the barrels. They cool quickly; by the time you’ve set the fifth roller, the first one will most likely be cool and you can move it to the next section of hair OR:
2. You can purchase a Click n Curl Expansion Set; they include 3 additional barrels for our extra-small, small, medium and large sizes. We also offer Customized Sets and individual barrels with which you can mix and match different sizes!
It’s hard to dry and roll my hair at the same time. Any advice?
I get it; it does take practice – but don’t give up! With a few tries, you’ll get the feel of holding the brush and dryer together, and you’ll be a Click n Curl pro in no time.
Until then, dry your hair like you usually do until it’s about 90-95% dry. Then, put the dryer down and place the brushes in your hair where you want them. Next, finish drying your hair with the brush heads in place. Be sure to heat each barrel with a long shot of hot air from the dryer. Let the rollers cool completely before removing them in a slow, up-and-outward motion. You’ll get the same results.
How long does it take for the barrels to cool? How long should I leave them in my hair?
The barrels are ceramic-coated aluminum so they heat and cool quickly. Really, it just takes a minute for the heated barrels to cool down enough to set the curl. By the time you have the last brush set in place, the first one will most likely be cool.
However, the longer you leave the brushes in place, the better the results. Allowing the brushes to remain in your hair for several minutes is ideal; we suggest that you use this time to put on makeup or eat breakfast.
Which Click n Curl barrel size is right for me?
Good question! Here’s a graphic to help answer that:
- Extra-Small Click n Curl, an approximate brush head diameter of 1 inch. We recommend your hair is at least 3 inches in length.
- Small Click n Curl, an approximate brush head diameter of 1.25 inches. We recommend your hair is at least 4 inches in length.
- Medium Click n Curl, an approximate brush head diameter of 1.75 inches. We recommend your hair is at least 5.5 inches in length.
- Large Click n Curl, an approximate brush head diameter of 2.25 inches. We recommend your hair is at least 7 inches in length.
Does the handle work with all barrel sizes?
Yes, the handle is universal!
Step One: Start with damp hair and apply a heat protectant or favorite styling product.
Step Three: Work with one section of hair at a time. Use the Click n Curl round brush and a hairdryer to smooth and dry hair from root to tip.
To create maximum volume, keep hair taut and lift upwards and outwards while drying. To prevent tangles, avoid catching hair from other sections.
When the section of hair is dry, wrap it around the barrel, making sure that it lies on top of the brush and that the ends are smooth against the barrel.
Step Two: Stand brush barrels on end in an easy-to-reach location. Attach the handle to each barrel with a click.
Step Four: Continue rolling until the barrel is tight against the scalp and at the root of that section.
IMPORTANT: Then give the brush a gentle shake back and forth against the scalp to set the roller in place. Release the handle.
Step Five: Attach the next barrel and repeat steps 3 and 4 until every section has been rolled tightly.
Step Six: Once the barrels have completely cooled, slowly unwind them using both hands, in an upward and outward direction.
Never pull downward and avoid catching other sections of hair to prevent tangles.
Step Seven: Style and finish your look. You’ll feel fresh and confident that you’ve achieved a professional looking blowout with amazing volume and stunning curls!
- To prevent damage to your hair, do not place a hair dryer directly on the barrels, bristle, or your hair. Keep the dryer a minimum of 2″ (5 cm) away from the barrel and in constant motion. Avoid excessive, direct, and prolonged heat.
- Ceramic/aluminum brush barrels may be hot during use with a blow dryer. Avoid touching a heated barrel to the skin. Allow to cool before handling.
- Not recommended for hair longer than 15 inches.
