I can't believe this product only has 5 reviews so far! I think this is an amazing set, I've had mine for about 3 years and totally love them since the first day. I have thick long hair, which I let air dry, once dried I heat up the rollers for a couple of minutes, put them on my hair and take them off in 5-10 minutes. Voilà! Pretty waves and no more freeze ;)
I purchased this roller set because it has more rollers than most, 20 rollers. Also, I love the pink color and it looked easy to use. My hair is very thick and hits the small of my back. The first time I tried this, I was buzzed on 2 glasses of wine and figured playing with my new hot rollers was a great idea. I just quickly wrapped my hair haphazardly in the rollers, not really paying attention to what I was doing. I did fumble with the clips, they can be slippery suckers. I let them set for 15 mintues and I took them out. My hair was so lovely with volume and soft waves. I was pretty shocked since I wasn't really trying that hard and I had washed my hair that day with no products used. Usually, day old hair curls better for me. Because my hair was clean, the waves didn't really hold for very long and I had flat hair again in a few hours. The second time I used this, I took it more serious and was drinking coffee instead so I was focused. The results were better the second time around. First, I made sure I had day old hair and I lightly sprayed a volume formula hair spray all over before I put the rollers in. I left the rollers in for 20 minutes and the results were more defined curls that lasted about 5 hours before they started to fall. After taking the rollers out, I kind of did a light brushing through them with a vent brush. I liked that my curls were soft but also frizz free. The curls were big and voluminous and natural looking. I got a much different look with this roller set than I would with a curling iron. Also, the clips didn't leave dents in my hair maybe because it is thick. On the Ulta site, I noticed people with fine hair had this common problem. I think if my hair was shorter, my curls would have lasted a bit longer. So, overall I do like this roller set and it was a great deal at $39.99! This roller set is so much easier and faster than if I curled my hair w/ a curling iron. My only complaint is that I wish my hair stayed curled for longer but that isn't the product's fault.
I've had this a few years and I really like these curlers, the curl lasts a long time in my hair and the hair sets quickly. I have to be careful not to leave them in too long or my hair gets too curly. I bought 2 sets to have enough of the larger size rollers to do my entire head in them.
i really wanted to try this hot roller set out, so my hubby decided to surprise me with it! I was so stoked to use it!This product is easy to use. You just line up the rollers on the metal band (with the clip attached) and wait a few minutes, like 5. This heats up real quick but doesnt burn your ffingers when you put them in. I havent played with this enough times, but I got the hang of it after my first try with these. I like the idea of the clips, but felt like they left a crease when I took the rollers out. You have to be careful if you have a lot of layers as it can get tricky. If you use the big roller and you have small layers, you get more of a volume effect rather than the curl. The small curlers give a beautiful curl to my hair! When I took them out, they were a bit bouncy, but throughout the day, the loosen up and become wavy. I do like this set, but I know it will take me some practice to get the right idea to fit my hair style. Overall, I like these rollers & my hair wasnt damaged =]
I have very fine thin hair. Just getting rollers to stay in without sliding out can be difficult. I purchased this set because I wanted rollers that were soft and I like the kind of clips that it comes with. If you buy hot rollers and they don't come with the kind of clips that you want, head over to Sally's Beauty supply and buy some to use. Anyway, the clips on these are heated as well and they can cause dents in the hair if care isn't taken. I use very small pieces of hair to roll, let it set for 3-4 minutes MAX and then unroll. If I were to let them sit longer, I'd be little orphan annie all day. I also don't use product in my hair aside from Aveda's heat protection spray and I end up with nice body and curl. These are nice rollers, a little big and cumbersome on the counter, but very effective and easy to use.

For years I have wanted to try hot rollers. I always thought they looked too good to be true. My hair never wants to hold a curl unless I shalaq it with 20 pounds of hair spray. Plus I was scared of hot rollers after seeing the giant silver space ship looking ones my aunt Liz wore to bed when I was a kid. They looked painful. I saw this set at Target for $40 and I bought them. I liked them because they were in a nifty black case and they each had their own hair clip. The first time I tried it, I don't even think I brushed my hair out. I did it half assed. I grabbed clumps of hair and rolled half heartedly. The directions said they would set in 15 minutes. I unrolled them after the 15 minutes and I was shocked. I had the most beautiful curls and my hair looked awesome. I didn't even try and it turned out wonderful. The curls held for hours without hairspray. My hair never will hold a curl but by some miracle, this worked. I have recommended these rollers to everyone. My 15 year old niece bought a set and she loves them even more than I do. She uses them everyday before school and with the big sexy hair hairspray, her curls will last all day. I can't say enough good things about these curlers. This is the longest review I've ever written on something so you know I am excited about it.
