      Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

      To start off with, I am an African-American female with natural hair. I was unsure about buying these because I need HEAT in my hair to make it look how I want it. BUT....I went to the ULTA salon and got the Steam Infusion blow out, which looked really nice. However, I wanted some extra curl and volume, plus I had an interview the next day and wanted to really "pop". So I brought these with me on my trip and used the steam rollers in the hotel the night before. I am currently writing this review as I'm standing here waiting on my flight home because the curls ARE STILL POPPIN!!! It's so incredibly humid here and my hair still has volume and amazing curl definition! If you are natural, I would recommend to try to straighten with steam beforehand, if possible, to make it easier and straighter and have the curls last longer. I tried them one time before on my untamed natural hair; they looked nice but didn't last long. But other than that I have no complaints!

        Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

        I'll admit, I am in my 30's but have never used hot rollers prior to this purchase! My hair is getting long, and I wanted to try those big soft waves (my hair has a natural, smaller wave). I did my research and was surprised to see that the Caruso rollers, of infomercial fame in my youth, really are the best for long, thick hair! I watched a few youtube videos, and gave them a try. WOW! I still have some learning to do, but after the first try I had hair that looked amazing. I probably won't use this every day (I'm more of a minimalist and ponytails are a go-to), but if I'm looking to really amp up my look, this is going to be it. Great purchase!

        Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

        I've been using caruso steam rollers and T3 rolls. I love the luxury and portability of the T3, but I love that caruso steam rollers curl my straight and thick hair and it actually holds a curl. My curls with T3 rollers do not hold up. Maybe I need more than 8 rollers, but I love that caruso are gentle on my hair, they come in many different sizes, and are generous with their rollers, and that it does what it claims to do. I don't mind steaming one at a time because they don't take long. It steams while I section my hair. I do wish the rollers came in different colors so that I could easily tell the sizes apart. I also like using other clips (like T3's clips) than the ones provided because I feel like they can sometimes be hard to use them and don't always stay in place. I do like the idea though.They also sometimes rub on the foam and I can tell that using them in the long run will eventually damage the foam. I also wished the rollers weren't foam because I think they would last longer, but just by using other clips should prolong them. My last suggestion would be to include a traveling case like T3's. Just a cheap plastic tote bag is not very pleasing and doesn't make them very travel friendly.

              I have been using this system since you had to use salt for it. I upgraded recently. I have long, thick, straight hair. These are the only rollers (short of the torturous foam overnighters) that put and keep nice curls in my hair all day long. I tried a few of the other brands when my friends asked me to try them. I will not stray from my Caruso Curl again. I call 'User Error' for anyone who had nothing but success with this.

                Use the ION Steam Hairsetter for special occasions. It adds volume and curl for two days. Overall it does the job.

                  My hair is thin and fine and only likes to be straight. I debating buying this product because people who described similar hair said it didn't work. However on mine it does a pretty good job! My hair never gives me volume but this rollers make me have "big Texas hair" and I love it! You do have to play with how long to leave the rollers on the steamer but once you get the hang on it, it works really well. It doesn't produce and insane amount of curl for me unless I use all smalls but then I have sherly temple curls. Love the volume and natural beach wave look

                    Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

                    I live in a VERY DRY climate and wanted to try these steam rollers vs. heated rollers, hoping they would be better at preventing split ends. I really like the rollers and the fact you can only "heat" up one at a time is NOT an issue. As soon as you've steamed one rollers (which takes about 10 seconds), you remove the steamed roller, place a new one on the unit and by the time you've secured the roller on your head the next one is ready to use. I actually LOVE how small it is so it will be easy to travel with. The curls do LAST FOR DAYS. It does take some practice to figure out which size works best on which section of your hair. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
