    Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

    Had one of these years ago and loved it but eventually it broke. It lasted over 10 years. Decided to buy a new one. Boy has the quality changed. Very flimsy and took a long time to heat up so sadly I returned it.

            Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

            I have mid-neck natural black hair (not thick or too thin) & it's silk pressed every 3wks. After wrapping hair at night, I hot roll my hair in the morning. This allows my hair not to be so flat when it's combed out. The rollers are well protected with thick velvet covering to prevent heat damage. The rollers do not get extremely hot which I love. Imagine rolling your hair with velcro/regular rollers & running the blow dryer over them for a quick curl (but better). If you're looking for tight/defined curls, these are not for you.
            *Also, the instruction guide allows you to order 3 additional rollers/metal pins for $3.50

            Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

            Bought these because of positive reviews and because they were compact. They did not work for my hair because they do not get very hot and take awhile to heat up. Once I used them on half my hair I needed to wait for them to reheat to use them on other half. Hair did not stay curled even after setting with product. I need more for my long hair and more heat.

                Perfect number of rollers to do my hair, I have a short bob that needed volume these rollers worked great for that. Love the size so when I take trips I can bring them along. Fast heating so you can use them and put back in and reheat to use on a different part of your hair so even though there are only 5 rollers its not an issue to do your whole head of hair

                  • Q:

                    Are these considered "instant heat", which heat up in about 5 minutes?
                    If not, does Conair still make the " instant heat" with this size set?
                    I've been using this set for about 20 years and just love them.

                      This hair setter takes only a few minutes to heat up. However, if you are looking for a hair setter that is "instant heat", you can try the Jumbo Roller Instant Heat Hair Setter (Ulta SKU #2050458) or the Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter (Ulta SKU #2077925). Both of these heat up in 85 seconds.
