    Container is very cheaply made. Curlers take twenty minutes to heat up- this is not told to the customer on the outside of the box. I plan to return them.

    Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

    I have purchased a couple of these sets over the past 6 years, and definitely notice the declining quality of the product. Do not expect to get more than a year of daily use out of this set. The plastic case cracks due to being subjected to the heat! As many respondents have emphasized, this set does NOT heat up well or consistently at all...not enough to actually give any measurable lasting curl results. I have long (18-20") straight hair that needs a lot more than a "warm" curler to get results.

    Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

    I love the curlers but have to use my own wire clips instead of the plastic ones it comes with. The big plastic
    ones leave crimp marks on your hair. Please start selling this product with the old wire clips again. Can you send me some of the wire clips instead??

      Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

      Although it does the job, the unit is cheap plastic. The clips that hold the rollers in your hair will leave a creases when you take the out. You will have to use a blow dryer to smooth your hair. I substituted traditional clips rather than the comb clips provided. The traditional clips will not leave the creases.

          Might try again at a later time when there's more time to see if it heats up more - I gave it 15 minutes, though. Should be plenty of time.

                  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.

                      Do the clips store inside the unit when not being used? They're not shown in the picture so it's hard to tell.

                        Hello PMakaCute,
                        Sorry it took so long to get back to you. The clips are not stored inside of the unit. They are attached to a cardboard strip inside the box but not attached to the unit in any way.
                        Thanks for inquiring about this product.

                    • 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.
