Probably showing my age here, as the entire world seems to use a flat iron on their hair now, but I am 54 and use two entire sets of Conair Big Curls rollers every. single. morning.  They are the peachy colored ones and all the same size, but they have the volume I need without tight curls. I am not having any luck posting a photo – sorry!

@cirk:  how long is your hair and what kind of curls do you want? I have a nice babyliss set that does tight(er) curls. But i want this set so I have bigger, looser curls. 

I also just recieved this set from my fiance’s reward points– havent tried it yet! 🙂

ETA: they all come with those crappy metal clip things– i use the “butterfly/Clasp” things that i have purchased seperately

I have naturally curly hair that I usually wear one of three ways:  1) air dried, naturally curly, 2) blow dried and straightened with a flat iron, or 3) blow dried and set in large, hot rollers to provide smoothness, shine and direction.  If I just blow dry my hair and do not set or straighten it, it looks unruly and fuzzy. (When I allow it to air dry, sometimes, in the interest of time, I have to help the process along with a hair dryer and a diffuser, but I don’t usually like the result nearly as much as wearing it one of the other three ways.)

When I use hot rollers, I use 1.5 sets of Conair rollers (17 rollers total) that are split in the center to allow for a more rapid heating time. I hold them in place with plastic clips with many very narrow “teeth” I have an older set of 12 rollers and a newer set with five.  The latter set I purchased from Target.

I also use Babyliss hot rollers. Love them!

I have naturally curly/wavy hair. I tend to let it do its own thing for daily style, but when I’m dressing up/for special occasions, I usually use hot rollers or my curling wand. I have a flat iron but I’ve decided to stop fighting my hair’s natural wave and just embrace it. 🙂
