    Roller Set/Curls Loc Styles??

    To all you ladies (and gents) who roller set their locs for the "curly" look, which do you use-Rods or sponge curler? I know some people even use strips of a t-shirt. Basically, which is your method and which do you feel makes the curls last longer?

    Every time I did curls I used sponge curlers, let it dry partially, removed the curlers and twist them into Bantu knots. But I wanted a more spiral curl look and was wondering if I can achieve that with rods instead of the sponge curlers.

    curls

    I usually do my sis own on rods, she would leave rods in for an entire day (she hates dryers).

    when I had locs I used the flexi rods and I also tried the pipe cleaner method....those gave some serious spirals.

    I've used the cold water rods & pipe cleaners and think they both give me good curl. The spongrollers is a waist of time period. Pipe cleaners have the metal inside which helps dry your locs quicker(think locs like me need that.) An you can have a good night sleep with them as well.
