I’m thinking about buying a set of hot rollers since I’m tired of spending 30-45min curling my long straight hair, does anyone use them? I would love to put them in, do my makeup, then take them out and have my hair done! How do they work? Which set would you reccomend, if any?

Oh, can’t wait for replies to this – I’d love to invest in a set of hot rollers that WORK really well on fine hair!

I have super fine hair, and a TON of it and I’ve found that as long as I put hairspray in my hair before I curl and leave the rollers in for a super long time (til they’re cool) my hair more or less holds the curl for a few hours. You have to give yourself time for the curls to relax a little bit, though, cause at first I end up looking like Shirley Temple! I love the look, but everyone else apparently thinks its stupid looking

I agree with KM, it matters more how you do it than what you use. Best tips:
1) wash your hair the night before– too clean hair will not hold curl
2) use mousse and/or hairspray (see #1)
3) Put your rollers in first, then do everything else. Like KM said, leave ’em in until they’re cool.
4) Take them out SUPER gently, and spray again before finger-combing.

I have a set made from National – and the set is high quality, but with only 4 heated chargers. the problem is, I don’t have enough rollers at once because I have too much hair! They say put 2 inches but my hair is too thick…and each additional roller is about 8 dollars~ I’m still trying to figure out how to best utilize my hot roller set. and then…
Honestly I’m just not very skilled in doing it. When I see it done properly on others, it looks so gorgeous, but I can’t seem to reach the back of my head!!! I’ve seen reality TV stars get ready and roll her hair up all neatly~ it looked amazing! i’m super envious~

The Remmington ones from Target are actually fantastic. Make sure you get the NEW ones though that are ceramic on BOTH the curlers AND the clips themselves. My hair is fairly fine and these set my hair fantastically. Plus they heat up in about 2 minutes!!

I tried to use hot rollers before, and it did not work out too well =(. My hair is really long and the curlers did not roll up to my head. Also they kept on falling, maybe i just had a bad kind ? For now I’ll just stick to my curling iron.

I use hot rollers every day and love them! I have a set of Conair rollers (12) with metal pins. I tried the Remington ones recently because I liked the different sizes and there are more rollers in the set. They didn’t work as well for my hair for some reason. So back to the old Conair ones!

The Remington ones work really well and definitely go for the ones that are ceramic and have the clip to keep the rollers in. I had the ones with the pins and it wasn’t as easy to keep in as the clips were.
I always wash my hair the night before. And add a little mousse to it while it is still wet.
In the morning, I’ll plug the rollers in- and the Remington set heats up very quickly. 3-4 minutes at the most.
I start with the front and work my way back. I normally do about 2 in of hair in the front and do larger sections towards the back of my head.
Then I do a light mist of hair spray over my entire head.
Let the curl set while you are applying make-up, ironing clothes, etc. and wait till they are completely cooled before removing them.
Take the rollers all out, do another light hair spray, and then gently use your fingers to separate the curls some. And then leave your hair to be- the more you touch it the sooner the curl will fall out.
And there you have your sexy curly hair as my FI calls it!

People really do this? I’m lucky if I get around to straightening my bangs…
