Wet Sets ok for Transition ?

NikoleNikole Posts: 7Registered Users
I have just decided to start my journey to being natural and I am so excited to see what my natural hair will look like. However I have a big problem. I am horrible at doing my own hair! I have ZERO talent in doing all those cute protective styles. I don't even know where to begin! So my question is can I do wet roller sets during my whole transition? I have never had braids or wigs so that's out of my comfort zone. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

    I'm 6 months into my transition and wet rollersets is my go-to style. I can't conrow and I can hardly flat twist, so it's the only thing I know how to do that looks good, lol

    HTH!

    Wet sets are the only style I can do myself. I went to a hairstylist twice but figured I can just do it my self and save some money. And it comes out fine for me.

    Thank you both! That makes me feel so much better to know that I'm not in this boat alone. One more question if you don't mind.. What type of setting products do you use? I'm trying to avoid cones if I can. Thanks Again for all your help!

    I use my regular moisture products (leave in conditioner, water based creamy moisturizer, seal with oils) then Aphogee wrap mousse. It has one cone that i saw in the ingredient list. I got it mostly because it was the only one i could find without drying alcohol. It holds and makes my curls super shiny without feeling producty or sticky.

    I am about three months into my transition and I love a good rollerset. Thank God I can braid, so braid outs are my go to style, but I love a good wet set too.

    Good luck!
    4a- maybe, definitely tight coils underneath the relaxed hair

    Wetsets would be fine. As long as use as little heat as you possibly can. But braid outs and twist outs aren't very hard either. There are plenty of tutorials out there.

    @ Nikole -- I use either Elasta QP Design Foam or Jane Carter Wrap and Roll. You can find Elasta at Walgreens or Wal-Mart and Jane Carter at Target.
