      Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

      Like several reviewers, I purchased this set to replace a set of similar rollers from over 20 years ago. Yes, the original set from Conair lasted that long, and the only issue was a cracked lid! I have fine, wavy hair that is prone to frizz. I blow dry my hair with very minimal styling (or effort) and then set it with these rollers. I remove them after they cool, and I'm left with body and smooth, loose, waves. I get similar results with a blow dryer, round brush, and Velcro rollers, but that takes more time and effort on my part. My set came with the original U shaped pins and some weird plastic clamps. I threw away the plastic ones. The old metal ones are best.

        I liked the small and light feature of this product, however it didn't get hot enough for my hair. I returned it.

          Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

          These were awful. Just awful. They take 15-20 minutes to heat up! Granted, the box does not say they're quick but come on, 20 minutes! Even when you do let them heat up, they barely curl and the curl falls out. Nothing good about these, will absolutely be returning them.

          This was just what I was looking for! And what a bargain! Needed quick, easy, portable, and effective hot rollers. Got it!
          The first time I turned the curlers on I got that chemical smell. But it wore off after a few times. Also the clips are a little flimsy, but not too shabby for the price point.

            The quality of the product is good, but I didn't work well for me. The rollers did not seem to get hot enough so they did not really curl my hair. My hair is pretty thick so maybe that had something to do with it. I returned the product after two tries.
