Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter

Item #: 2077925

Ask a Question

The Ion Shine Instant Hair Setter uses a dual ionic port system to charge each velvet wrapped curler with negative ions, these negative ions are proven to promote conditioned, shiny, and healthy hair. This hairsetter kit includes 20 curlers in 3/4", 1", and 1 1/4" sizes. Model reaches full heat in just 2 minutes and carries a limited 1 year warranty.

The Ceramic Dual Ionic Port System with Ceramic Layered Technology Rollers:

  • Medium Rollers: Use on short hair to create fullness and tight curl. Tight curls can be used at the nape of the neck and to frame your face.
  • Large Rollers: Use on medium to long hair to create a looser curl that's bouncy and full of body.
  • Jumbo Rollers: Use on medium to long hair to create the smooth sleek lines of softer, sophisticated hairstyles.


(Model # CHV26HCX)



 


  • Place ends of hair on roller and wind toward the scalp. Roll up hair firmly, and secure clip, crossing over roller. Do not place clip in roller slit.
  • The firmness of the curl is determined by the temperature control dial, the diameter of the roller, and the length of time the roller is left in your hair.
  • For tight, firm curls, use smaller rollers and higher temperatures and leave in the hair for at least ten minutes before removing. For soft, wavy curls, use larger rollers and lower temperatures and remove rollers after a shorter period of time. 12 variable heat settings give you longer lasting styles.
  • Removing roller: hold roller in one hand while removing clips with the other. Gently drop roller (DO NOT PULL) and let curl bounce back after roller has been completely removed. Let cool for one minute for a firmly set curl, and then style your hair into a look that lasts for hours. IMPORTANT: After using the hairsetter several times, you will find the best roller selection and the best timing for the texture of your hair and for the result you desire.

        Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

        Whoever came up with these kind of clips deserves to be fired asap!! This is so annoying. For someone who has used hot curlers all her life, this was the absolute dumbest idea to use clips like this. Seriously, what is the point? I don't ever write reviews whether it's negative or positive but this is ridiculous. The curler won't stay in unless you literally put barely a few strands in. I have thick hair. Would only work on paper thin hair... but I don't know anyone with thin hair who uses hot curlers. Once I finally get them to stay in the curl is nice but I don't have the time nor the patience to sit there and "catch" all the curlers that fall out as soon as I put them in. Like I said I've been using hot curlers all my life and mostly this brand but this is the absolute worse.

            Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

            Purchased this set of rollers to use everyday. I was looking for a way to get big loose curls easily so I could do it everyday. The first time I used it, it was a mess. The clips that come with it do not hold the curler in place. After you put the clip on, the curler just falls down. The device comes with a section that you can preheat the clips, this makes the clips so hot that you can't even touch them to use. I know these are "hot" rollers but the rollers in the center were so hot on the edges that I burnt my fingers and scalp. I had a hard time using those rollers because I couldn't successfully wrap my hair around them with them being scorching hot. I left the set in for about 20 minutes while I got ready. After I took the first couple out, I knew it was going to be a disaster. My hair just completely frizzed out. Pieces didn't even curl, leaving parts straight with other parts only slightly curly. My hair felt so dry and damaged which surprised me because I applied Chi Heat Protection before I curled. I did try using this set a second time a couple days later to give it another chance. Again the same problems. I left this set in for about 30 minutes. Pieces didn't curl, pieces just were frizzy. Because the clips don't stay, the entire strand of hair doesn't look uniform​. Overall, don't buy this product. Just spend the extra money and get a better set! It's not worth standing in the mirror and hating the way your hair looks. I will be returning as soon as possible.

            • On Fine Hair

            Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

            I liked that this product had different size rollers so that you can have smaller curls mixed with larger curls. The main problem I had with this product was that the clips did not hold my hair. I put less hair on the roller and the clip was still floppy and loose and my hair was falling out of the roller. I think on fine hair these rollers would work best. I did like that the clips themselves heat up, but if they can't hold the hair it doesn't matter.

                  I have been using hot rollers since high school and I've had this set for a while now. My BF has gorgeous shoulder-length auburn hair and his hairdresser has curled it at the salon a couple of times. It looks fabulous curled! and she suggested we start doing it at home. I finally got him to let me hot-roll it on a Saturday morning and I could not believe how cute he looked (both in rollers and after :) ). He won't leave the house now without his hair curled and I just got him his own set. I recommend these for anyone, male or female, who wants big bouncy curls!
