Xtra Large Bombshell Volumizer

Step 1: "I start prepping the hair by applying XL Bombshell Volumizer at the roots when the hair is wet. It's a different volumizer than the ones of the past because it gives you big bouncy hair but with none of the drying, sticky stiff feel of volumizers of the past."

Step 2: "Blow dry the hair."

Leandro Limited Assorted Self-Grip Rollers

Step 3: "When hair is dry put the velcro rollers in - these are old school and so easy to work with. Don't bother doing it from the beginning when the hair is wet - it's a waste of time."

Step 4: "Take out rollers - brush out and you'll start to see the explosion of big sexy J.Lo "superbowl-esque" hair."
