I picked up this set of heated rollers from a car boot sale where a lady was selling them for £5 and they were nearly new and included everything that would have come with the set brand new. The normal price for this roller set is £22 so I think I got a bit of a bargain.
The set comes with 18 different rollers of varying sizes. There are 6 small rollers, 6 medium rollers and 6 large rollers. The small rollers are for shorter hair to achieve tighter curls and I never use these ones and the medium and larger rollers are used for longer hair to get looser and wavier curls.
I liked the shape of the rollers are they are concave shaped and they are easier to roll through my hair than other rollers that I have used. I only use these for wavy curls so I use both the medium and large rollers together so that the waves look a bit more natural and not just completely the one size and this works well for my hair.
The rollers take about 10 minutes to heat up and they retain the heat quite well. I find them easy to roll my hair around them and they stick quite well. The set comes with some metal clips to keep the rollers in place once you have rolled them. Once you have rolled them in your hair you then need to keep them in for a while. It depends on how much curl you want with how long you need to keep them in.
The rollers don’t give me proper curls but that isn’t why I would use them. I would only use these to get my hair to look wavy and full of body and they do a good job of doing that. When I take the rollers out and then brush my hair it is left lovely and wavy and looks very glamorous. I do think it is important to then use quite a bit of hairspray as the waves tend to fall out on their own but if I spray them enough then they stay in place for much longer.
It is a bit of a faff to use these and I couldn’t imagine using them everyday as I just couldn’t be bothered with it but I don’t mind using them occasionally when I want big wavy hair as these are the best thing for achieving that look. I really don’t think they are great for giving proper tight curls and if that’s what you are wanting then I would definitely stick to using some curling tongs but for wavy hair then these are great.
