    One of the old skool LHCers (sorry, don't remember who, maybe Teacherbear?) said to never put anything in your hair that comes out with hairs in it. That's a good rule of thumb, and certainly will rule out velcro rollers. I used to love them on shorter hair (and before LHC) but not anyore.

    Always behave like a duck -
    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

    I think Velcro rollers are fine for curling your bangs, but not for long hair. I tried them once and it was a disaster. My hair was tangled up almost instantly and it was so hard to get the curler out. I think foam rollers or socks are much gentler.

    Sounds like an intelligent rule of thumb.

    Agghh I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. I tried using them back in school and they did absolutely nothing for me - no waves/curls, they just made sections of my hair stick up at the roots at awkward angles.

    And I do remember ripping and pain.
