Best rollers/curlers

Hey ladies.. what rollers or curlers do you prefer for wet sets?

I'm not the best at rollersets, but I still try to do them every now and again. I had some magnetic rollers, but they were too slippery so I gave them away. Right now I do have some flexi rods, which seem to be the easiest for me to use. I also had the pink foam rollers, but never used them enough to get a feeling for them one way or another.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)

    I buy the plastic rollers (I think Goody makes them). Any drugstore carries them or you can buy them at Ricky's or online. Sometimes they have clamps over them which I throw out. I use bobby pins to secure them once I have rolled the wet hair onto them.

    The type I like has holes in them to let the air in so that they dry faster. I have tried using foam rollers but they make my hair snarly and if I roll them tightly enough to get a smooth curl, it becomes a tiny tight curl. The plastic ones make even curls which flow into nice waves once they are dried and brushed out. I like doing a wet set with rollers (and some sort of product) because it lasts for several days. Unfortunately, when I do a curly look, it lasts for only one day so next morning I have to start all over again which is a PITA.

    ETA: there are some excellent youtube videos showing how these work. They don't slip like magnetic rollers - I can't use those either. Good luck! HTH.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    I've been wanting to try those. They seem like they'd be easy to sleep in.

    I like the magnetics with the cap can't use the pins. But the mesh imo are the best especially the french mesh they are huge but firm, less drying time too.
