If so..How long does it take it you? How long is your hair? Which wet sets do you do? Flexi rods/pin curls/rollers/braids/twists?

Thanks!

    I've always airdried my roller sets. I don't do the other styles you mentioned. But I've been airdrying my rollersets for forever and at various lengths. My hair was sl mas o menos, 20 years ago, pixie cut 15 years ago, bsl-mbl throughout the 2000s and now back to a little longer than pixie length (what would that be idk el?) Anyway all that time I've done airdried roller sets. So I would always have to gauge how long it takes to dry (thick, but fine hair) and make sure I gave myself that much time.

    eta: I sleep in my magnetic rollers. So my hair currently takes a few hours to dry. When it was long I would roll it around 6ish and it would be dry by the next morning around 6ish...

    Yes I airdry my rollersets. I use magnetic rollers, and air them out about 2 hours or so, then put my bonnet on and sleep in them. My hair is NL and they are dry by morning, but I have heard to allow at least 6-8 hrs depending on your hair length.

    I bantu-knot my hair and leave them in for about 1/2 a day. I wash my hair in the afternoon, knot my hair, and then sleep with them in that night and take them out the next morning. This style lasts me a week. Hope this helps!

    Wow! Your bantu knots last a week? I also do bantu knot outs. I wash my hair in the evening after work. Let it get about halfway dry, apply styling cream and put my bantu knots in. Then I sleep with them in and take them out in the morning. I usually re-twist them every night. I have only tied it up once while it was loose. And when I woke up that morning I had to use a curling iron to touch it up a little, ugh.
    I am currently transitioning-my last Relaxer was Oct 15.

    My hair is shoulder length and I do small knots that give me a curly fro look. They end up holding so good that my curls really don't start dropping until about the 3rd day. I wear a satin bonnet every night. I think the best way to get these to hold is find products that really hold your hair style.
