Ladies, I am a licensed Cosmetologist and I'll give you a few hints for correct use and to get the best out of this product. First of all forget the silly wire clips included, go to a beauty supply and buy plastic "jaw" clips, that's what we use in the salon. You should really have two sets of these, 12 rollers don't really accommodate the entire head. Always use a blowdry styling product and fixative like hair spray to spray each section before rolling. Most importantly, make sure to let these cool off completely before removing. You should have fantastic long lasting curl. For best results on long hair, get you hair layered next time you get it cut!
Rated 5 out of 5 by babykakes1016 works great!!
Being a hairdresser, I have used many products on my hair and tested them for friends and myself and this one is great! I don't think that many people now that curlers are NOT supposed to give you a great curl...but body with a slight wave. Basically, if you want to have the quintessential "Victoria Secret" model hair, this is something you need. A tip: Start with the top of your head and make a mock mohawk from the front of your head to the crown (were you would normally place a ponytail) and pin up with a clip-then pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail so it doesn't get into the rest of your hair. then let the mohawk part down and separate into sections. starting at the front of your head and moving back make medium sections you should only have to use 3 or 4 curlers for this section. start in the middle of the hair shaft, that way you don't look like your front the 80's and curl the bottom of your hair UP into the curler. then roll the rest of your hair up to your head and secure with the clips (included). Continue until done with the mohawk part and then start on the sides of your head, with medium sections as well. After finishing you head, you should have what people call "The George Washington" look! If you have thick or very long hair, you may need more than the 12 curlers included so try it with this one and you might have to buy one with more curlers (Conair Instant Heat Multi-Sized Hot Rollers with Heated Clips-have 20 and they work just as great!) Once you finish your entire head, then you MUST LET THEM COOL!! So do your makeup, get dressed or sit and watch the news for about 10 to 20 minutes, until you ENTIRE head is cool to the touch, it may take longer. I would suggest to do a trail run on a night were you don't have anything going on, that way if it doesn't come out to your liking you are not running around or pulling it up into a ponytail for work or a date. Once cool start at the TOP of your head, just the way you started and continue down your head, whatever way you put them in, you should take them out. Turn your head over, and spray some hair spray, use a flexible hold though, so your hair is not stiff, and turn over. Fluff a little with your fingers and your done. REMEMBER, this will only give body and a slight curl, so don't be disappointed if you didn't get a great curl, truthfully, if you would like a great curl, use a curling iron.
Rated 4 out of 5 by leiaorgana Great rollers! ALMOST perfect!
I love these rollers. I was given the Remington Jumbo rollers initially, but their terrible clips weren't even tight enough to hold a roller in tight or "on base" and left bad dents in my hair. I returned them and bought these. I have used the Conair brand before and was very happy, but wanted only large/jumbo rollers this time. These are nearly perfect!! I have fine hair, just past my shoulders and these rollers work great for me.
*Most sets come with only a few jumbo or large rollers and too many small ones. This set has only large and jumbo which is perfect for loose waves and/or volume.
*My hair is voluminous and smooth with gentle waves with these rollers.
*It heats up quickly and doesn't take up too much space.
*The rollers "grab" the hair just right. The velvety texture keeps hair smooth while also keeping the hair from sliding off.
*The wire pins hold rollers in tight and hair is dent-free. Once you figure out how to position them they are a cinch. They DON'T the leave "dents" in hair like the claw clips do and you can get the roller "on base" for maximum volume easier with pins than clips. Clips also weigh the roller down, so these pins are the best, IMO.
******Only thing I would change is the fact that the set does not come with an area to keep the pins. I don't know why Conair would make a hairsetter that doesn't have a place to put the pins. ??? It's sort of a pain to keep them separate from the rollers, but I guess I'll make do.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OKIE81 Wonderful!
I've had this product for several years now and considering purchasing a 2nd set. I have mid length layered, nautral curly hair and this product is WONDERFUL! It will relax the natural curl, but keep the curl in the layers! Each time I have used these rollers, I'm always asked who fixed my hair and I just love saying "ME"!! Well with the purchase!
Rated 5 out of 5 by HippieGramma ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!
This is the best hot roller set on the market!! I have used hot curlers since I was a teenager in the 70s. I have long thick hair and 2 roller sets. Sometimes I only use one set, but use more when I want really BIG hair. The velvet coating grips the hair very nicely and doesn't get tangled in my hair like Other brands with comb tyoe grips. The wires hold fine, you just have to learn how to use them. The little dents the wires make in no way alters the product's excellant performace. My hair has a lot of body but I still need a little hair spray to hold the curl all day. I plan to use this brand and style of hot rollers as long as they continue to make such a fantastic product! THANK YOU CONAIR!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sweetkathryn Lousy Rollers
I have very long fine hair. I have been in the markets for some jumbo sized rollers. I was excited when I found these hair setters. After trying them, I must give it a thumb down. Finally i returned it.
By the way, the problems are the followings: rollers do not stay in place; the velvet on the rollers sticks to my hair making very difficult to remove them.

I have a pool and sometimes my hair looks like straw.. A few minutes with this product and I have soft shiny hair,
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommy2Princess Great set of rollers!
I haven't used rollers in years and was a little skeptical at how well these would do and if they would take the place of my curling iron. I have slightly layered hair a few inches past my shoulders. I have to apply some form of heat to it for it to look decent, be it blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron or rollers. I let my hair air dry at night, and in the morning I put the rollers in first thing so I can do other things like put on my makeup or make breakfast while they're cooling down in my hair. These have made my mornings so much more enjoyable. They're very easy to use and my hair looks just as good or better than when I was using my curling iron. The curl stays a lot longer than my curling iron. It will give you big flippy voluminous curls, not spiral. Some posts suggested spraying the curls after you take the rollers out before you finger through them, but I find the spray weighs my hair down, so I just go without any products. I also bought the roller clips at Sally's for around 5 or $6, but actually the pins that come with the rollers seem to hold the roller tighter. I stick the pins in from the bottom of the roller. Sometimes I'll use both. My hair is very healthy and doesn't get frizzy with these rollers. I'm really pleased with them. They exceeded my expectations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesWavyHair32 Love it!!
My hair stylist told me about these so I thought since I just got my hair layered I would try them. I paid $25 in the store for them, and was hoping they would work out, well i tried them and absolutely love how full and wavy my hair looks with them. Using a big barrel curling iron works well too, but I have to say these are so quick and easy with such a great look they are my new favorite!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Uglyoldlady Perfect large curls just what I wanted.
I was looking for something for shoulder length hair. I saw this product had great reviews andI was not disappointed. It is exactly what I was looking for.
Rated 4 out of 5 by CONNIE94568 BUY THESE-BEST DEAL!
I just received these a few weeks ago. and Love them! I have bought others for more money and
less curlers within this last year and not as good. Only thing I have my own clips and prefer that
to wire holders. Wire Holders come with curlers. These heat up really hot and fast.Lots of curlers
to do your whole head at one time. I appreciate others review when buying a product. Hope this
help others! These curlers are GREAT!
Rated 1 out of 5 by greenanne DISAPOINTED.........
I thought I had found just what I was looking for when I bought these rollers 1- nice and compact 2- The rollers were just the size I wanted 3- and what was really great for me was, they were all the same size rollers. Not like other sets I have had and ended up not needing all thoes other sizes and wishing I had more of the ones I did use ............The negative for me is that The rollers are very heavy in the hair and therefor did not stay in the hair. I have long hair but the clips do not hold them in and they just end up working themselves out and the first and only time I tried them the clips made indentations in the velvet around the roller, didn't look so great. I was just so disapointed in the clip thing, It seems like they could have found a better way to keep them in. I had to send them back.....BOOHOOHOO!!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by fabulosity0688 didnt work for me
I was so excited to buy this product, because I had been searching for rollers that had the large and jumbo rollers. The rollers were easy to use, but it didnt work on my hair. This roller set is good for someone that has fine hair. My hair is thick, and I have lots of hair, so it didnt work for me. I returned it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Girlee2 Heats up really fast!
Like that its just a few amt of curlers that can handle a large amt of hair-doesn't dry out hair like others and heats up really fast too. For the money a great value.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tardee Love these!
I havent used hot rollers in years, but wanted to start (only with a really good set) to tame my frizzies & give me a more polished look. The only other hot rollers I used to use was the kind that had no foam on them & they were various sizes (& the largest were pretty small.....never even used the tiny ones!) WELL.....I LOVE that these are ALL jumbo size (there is very tiny difference in size between the 2 included). I like that because my hair is just below shoulder length & I get an all-over look, rather than tiny curls, big curls, etc.
They are SIMPLE to use AND FAST FAST FAST! They heat up immediately & the ceramic inside the roller keeps the heat while rolled up. Take out quickly for just body or leave in til cooled to get more (large) curls. Adds SHINE & smoothes frizzies.
I researched brands & models online & THESE kept coming up as the highest rated on all counts. A couple of pricey brands had complaints that these did not. For this price....you cannot go wrong!
I had them SHIPPED TO HOME, instead of picking up at the store, because I live outside the city limits, so it was really no diff. in total price since I pd LESS tax having them shipping to my home. yay.
Also....I was leary of using the included clips (like the ancient set I had that didnt hold)...but THESE HOLD just fine. NO reason to go buy lobster clips to hold these in. The foam roller keeps a firm grip.
If you're looking for a great blow dryer......I ordered one of those too from Walmart.com.....the Conair Ion Shine (tourmaline ceramic dryer#. Great price ALSO! ...and 1875 watts w/ many settings! #see below for pic I added)
Rated 5 out of 5 by MommyOF2girls Great Rollers
Only negatives to mention:
1- a few of the rollers don't slide all the way in to the heating base easily
2- the wire clips make indentions into the velvet covering on the rollers
1- I like that they are all the same size rollers, great for adding body to straight hair.
2- Heat very fast
Rated 3 out of 5 by Loxie This roller set is not as good as the older ones because it doesn't have a slot inside the set to store the wire clips, so you could possibly lose them. Plus the hair slides off the rollers, especially the jumbo ones. It seems like they don't grip the hair as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MoukasLilBit Just got these yesterday and I love the way my hair turned out when I used them this morning....very voluminous with just enough curl. The reviews from the two cosmetologists were very helpful. I printed and followed babykakes1016's tips. Don't think I could have done such a great job without them. The only complaint is the same as others I've read...the clips are hard to use (rollers fell out a few times) but they didn't leave dents....will continue to practice with them but will also buy the butterfly clips as my own hairdresser suggested. I have very long hair (down to my hips) cut in layers and the one set is enough. I don't use these hot rollers on the front section of my hair that was once my bangs. They are much shorter than the shortest layered part of my hair so I use regular non-heated magnetic rollers for volume only. Since my hair turned out better than expected on my first try, I can't wait to see my "Victoria Secret" model hair after I've practiced a few times.
Rated 5 out of 5 by busyeduc8tor My hair is long and thick, and using a curling iron takes forever. These rollers heat up while I'm drying my hair. By the time I've got the last one in, the first one is ready to take out. These save me a lot of time in the morning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TrueNole Beyond Expectations!
Gives just the right amount of body and volume to my hair! This was my first roller set and I could not be happier...great value and quality. My advice is to not hesitate, these are awesome :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by RoxannaMJ Good Rollers for Long Hair!
I had read many Reviews on this product, so I had to try to myself.
I have really long hair.
I really like the rollers they worked great!, the only thing is I wished they had more. The 12 rollers worked great but maybe if they had 14 it would be best.
Rated 2 out of 5 by FishRiverPirate1 No clip storage
Rollers get hot and work well but there is not a place to put the roller clips. Bad design not to include a slot to put the clips in, there's enough space to have included this like my old Conair rollers they just didn't do it. :(
Rated 1 out of 5 by antsmomy GOING BACK
THESE ROLLERS ARE TOO BIG AND THE CURLS DONT LAST...TOOK THEM BACK TODAY, THEY DONT HEAT WELL AND THE CLIPS ARE TERRIBLE, THEY ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH FOR THESE BIG ROLLERS. I BOUGHT THE REMINGTON HEATED CLIP ROLLERS INSTEAD AND THEY ARE AWSOME!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by ekeoga pins don't stay in
I tried these once and returned the item. The pins slid right off, so the curlers slipped donw.
Rated 1 out of 5 by tanasmom1969 Terrible
I never write reviews but I am so disappointed in this product. The rollers got nice and hot...but the edges were so hot I had to burn my fingers while putting them in. I thought with them being so hot that I would have nice curls. I left them in about 10 minutes. When I first took them out, they had a small amount of curl but as soon as I ran the brush through once, they were gone. They just fell right out. I tried several times using hair spray or mousse but the curls fell right out in seconds and they were very loose poor curls in the first place. I am taking them back tomorrow. They are worthless.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Trailblazer55 No on/off switch is a huge turnoff
The redesign on this is terrible. Having to unplug it is a huge pain. The other issue is that the new model doesn't have a clips holder built in.
Hard to believe the old design was much better.
If I hadn't given to my wife as gift I'm sure we would have returned it
Rated 1 out of 5 by dorree1122 should have listened to the other reviews
The curlers are all jumbo. There aren't enough of them. The clips are too short and you have to secure them in just the right way to make them stay. Basic body, no real curl. Fell out almost immediately.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dvlpc Not hot enough
The size of the rollers were ideal but the posts that the rollers were on to heat up were not long enough to heat the roller sufficiently
Rated 1 out of 5 by kdgigi way to hot to handle!!! cant even roll your hair without gloves
Rated 3 out of 5 by Alyssasmommy7 These are great to learn with if you don't have too much hair. The heat up takes a while but they are very efficient. You may need 2 sets of you have long or thick hair.
