Pros: Heats up FAST. Nice selection of various sized, flocked rollers.
Cons: I hate the clips with a passion! They do not hold well and curlers flop around and loosen extremely easily. I dislike that there is no storage for the clips, outside of the three spaces to heat clips. I've had this set for over three months and finally just lost my patience with the clips.
I've just ordered a separate style of conair clips, 10 to a pack, from Sally, along with the old-style wire clips, and will see if I can find a way to continue using them.
This morning I was so frustrated I about threw it out the window!
Bought this after returning a different roller set. I am happy with this product. I am a total newbie when it comes to hot rollers, but I feel that it is hard to mess up your hair when using these rollers. Good product for the money.
After doing a bunch of reading and purchasing/returning 3 different sets of hot rollers, this is the one I feel is the best product for the price. Conair is the parent company to Jilbere and Babybliss who each have similar products on the market, but for more $.
The Conair version I purchased at Target for $29.99, but it does go on sale. It comes w/ 20 multi-sized flocked rollers infused w/ ceramic along w/ 20 clips (3 of which you can heat up simultaneously w/ the rollers = can have hot rollers AND hot clips.) They advertise 75 second heat-up time - seems accurate to me. They describe their roller sizes as medium (6), large (6) and jumbo (8). Now I am a total nube, but compared w/ my velcro rollers, I would classify these as small, medium and large, but that's just me.
I purchased more for getting a ton of long-lasting volume at the crown of my head vs curls, and being a nube w/ hot rollers, I have tried over a few weeks and all sorts of looks have resulted (most fun, some not worth repeating.) I finally figured out I need MY definitition of jumbo rollers, so I went to Sally's and purchased a pkg of Jilbere 6 jumbo rollers (1 1/2") for $11 (w/ beauty card) I swapped out 4 of the Conair rollers for 4 of the jumbo = I have plenty to get the crown of my head done + I have all those other sizes still available for when I want to experiment w/ more curls which I do on other parts of my head, depending on my mood.
I have not noticed any damage to my hair (I do not use any pre-heat product, just my standard mousse or david babaii volcanic ash to assist in getting volume). After removing the rollers and while fingering thru to seperate, I use a small amount of moroccean oil like I always do = I have shiney, VOLUMINOUS hair that lasts all day = color me happy!
The case itself is not super sturdy = I would not travel w/ it (I took my velco rollers on my recent trip to LA) and I have read others' reports of similar products having the plastic tops break off easily.
I am very happy w/ this product and have no problem recommending to others.
