      Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

      The curling set was a big disappointment and quickly returned. In my one and only attempt, the curlers heated up minimally making them no better than simple brush curlers. Also, the clips provided are prone to leaving unattractive dents in your hair. Not worth any money at all.

      The rollers did not get hot enough. I had them plugged in for 15 minutes. My hair looked good for a couple of hours then all the curls were gone. I have straight hair.

              Unfortunately, it wasn't what I needed. It takes 15 mins to heat up and 15 to make the curls. The curls were not defined and I have fine hair. There are also only 5 rollers, which means you can only do a small section at a time. My curling iron is more effective.

                Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

                I have been using electric rollers for over 40 years. Glad to see they are back in style now - I never could understand how young women can afford to spend 30-60 minutes with those hot abusive curling irons! These curlers are the best - easy to use, no fly-aways, if they slightly leave a "crimp" mark in the hair, it can be blown out quickly and instantly with a hair dryer. Curls are beautiful - only complaint I have is that I travel on a plane weekly and the top lid always cracks (I've had 3 of these over the many years), no matter how great I pack. No big deal though. Can't understand why some folks say they don't heat up well. Mine have ALWAYS heated up quickly - and hot! Leave the lid down while heating.

                Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

                I use these every day. The metal heat is only exposed to bottom of roller so they don't get super hot all the way through which prevents hair from curling quickly but roller size and number is perfect. Not as good as the ones I was replacing from 30 years ago, but they will work. I have long thick hair so may work better on shorter or thinner hair.

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

                        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.

                    • 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.
