      I should have listened to other reviews, as curls only last about a 1/2 hour, they do not hold

        Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

        I think that the curl did hold. My problem with this product is the clips!! They don't hold well at all the hair falls a bit which is FINE, but then it creases the hair in the exact pattern of the clip! I have very fine hair that is naturally curly I blow out and set the curlers. I can not use the clips I have been using duck billed metal curl clips to secure now. I found some old fashioned wire curler clip things at a local beauty supply. I am going to try because I know they don't crease the hair.. I think the curler is good, and it lasts fine in my hair, just disappointed at the whole clip Idea!

        This one sucks Conair. The slits on both sides cause frizzy hair if you don't miss the slits. Bought three set as gifts and they all hate them! It's a big bust.

                Doesn't hold the curl.. My curls lasted less than 2 hours and that was with hairspray . There isn't enough room for the clips so they have to be heated 3 at a time

                  Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

                  Like several other reviewers, I found that while these rollers created lovely curls, they did not last -- they felt flat in about half an hour.I loved the idea that the clips were heated, because I thought that this would help heat my hair evenly and create a lasting curl. But I think the problem is that both the roller itself and the clip are PLASTIC, so they don't hold onto heat. It felt like once I removed the roller from the heating element, rolled up my hair, and clipped it, the roller was already cooled down. It literally would take me longer to roll my hair up in these than the curls lasted. And yes, they do tend to snag the hair because of the flocking on the roller. Returned.

                    This appliance worked great. I have short, fine hair and the Florida humidity can really wreck it. I use the hot rollers to perk up my hair if I have to go out in the evening. There are just the right number of rollers and the three sizes work perfectly. I read all of the reviews prior to purchasing and I am very happy with my final selection.

                    Product is easy to use once you get the hang of using hot rollers, and I've never used them before. They warm up fast so it's not so time consuming. Just watch your fingers sometimes, once they're hot, you are more likely to touch the wrong spot on the roller.

                        The Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter does not have an on/off button. The hair setter has a red light that indicates when it is turned on.

                    • Q:

                      Can I use the metal clip type with these or do I need to use the heated clamps? I don't like how the clamps make dents in your hair sometimes and prefer the wire look type instead.

Three clips are stored in the Hair Setter, as there are three aluminum strips that can heat up the clips for use. The other 17 clips are stored inside of a plastic bag in the box that the hairsetter comes in.
