Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

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.

      Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

      Great curls, for about 20 minutes. This isn't an exaggeration. I curled my hair before a wedding, and I really like the results. It took about 20-25 minutes to get to the venue, and the curls had already fallen. If the curls would last, it would've been great.

      I gave them a second try, and the result was the same. :(

      Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

      The rollers curl my hair sufficiently, however the clips to hold them in place don't hold tightly on my thick hair. They also leave a ridge where the teeth grab onto the hair. I bought wire "pins", as were used with hot rollers many years ago, which hold much more securely. The rollers did curl more efficiently with the heated clips provided, but just don't hold the rollers tightly.

        This is a wonderful product to use when you do not want to be tied to a curler or or an iron. You can curl your hair and do whatever else you need to do while the curls set. Unroll the rollers and then run your fingers through the curls and out the door you go! For lasting curls through the night, I would suggest using a product like syling lotion.

        Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

        The clips did not hold my rollers into place and left prominent dents in my hair. Also every time I give this product another try, I end up putting my hair into a braided bun in effort to hide the mess that was created while using it. I get amazing results using my curling wand in less than half the time it takes to get awful results using this product.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

          Had high expectations for shine and volume, but it does not deliver. Grippers are too loose to hold curlers in place and also create ridges. No additional shine.

          Fell flat

            Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

            I have thick shoulder length hair so I have a harder time finding hot rollers that do beautiful curls that will also HOLD. Since this product boasted that the clips also heated, giving you heat inside and out I thought I would give it a try. All the curl fell out within a half hour. Also, there was only room to heat 3 clips beforehand so it was rather timely since you have to put the clips on as you go and then wait for them to heat. Disapointing overall for me, but seems to be industry standard. The only unit I have found that really holds the curl is an old conair unit made in the 1990s. Still looking for that update!

            Use it to curl hair and it will hold the curl. Please develop another roller clamp for this though. The one is has is a real pain to use. It does not secure the rollers securely.

              I have the older version of ion shine that has only large rollers not an assortment of sizes. What is the diameter of the largest roller size in this newer version? I usually use only two to three jumbo rollers on top of my head? Thank you. Marian
