Love this, doesn't damage hair and curls last but I don't like the clips, they leave indentations and are a bit difficult to fasten.

Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

I have extremely fine/thin hair that is pin straight and that gets very oily. I can spend an hour blow drying my hair and hot rolling it with tons of hairspray only to have it fall flat the second I step outside in the hot Georgia humidity.

I was very weary of these bc I couldn't use a ton of hairspray when setting my hair. I figured even if it did curl my hair the curl would fall right out.

I was so wrong...I took the rollers out and have never had so many curls in my life! I looked like a poodle! From then on I use the large rollers and it gives me perfect waves that stay all day long. I don't have to load my hair down with 10 lbs of hairspray and I get curls that stay without the stickiness.

LOVE these rollers and would highly recommend them. My only negative is that they do take longer to use than your regular hot rollers, but for the curls they give me I can't complain.

    Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

    I have other hot rollers that I like. I like the idea of this, but the rollers take up a lot of space. It's hard to get them to the right heat (either too hot or too cold). They sometimes end up too wet instead of steamed. My hair turned out frizzy every time I used this, more than normal. If you have thick hair the clamps may not really work. It was hard to get them on right. This was great in concept but bad in follow through.

      Wish there was a container to store the clips and rollers in, other them just a bag. It would be nice to place rollers in a container and let them air dry by removing the moister still left in roller.

        Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

        I had high hopes for this, as it looks like it wouldn't damage hair at all. I tried it 5-6 times hoping I just needed to learn how to use the system, but it just didn't work for me. Left my curls frizzy. I have fine, thin hair that is naturally curly, but just not the right kind of curl, so I use styling tools to perfect them. I will stick with my curling iron and clips and return this item.

              The clamps don't hold the curler in place.

                Comments about Caruso Professional ION Steam Hairsetter:

                I have had 2 sets in the last 20 years. The ion factor was added to the second version, and on the 'ion' setting it is NORMAL to hear the clicking, not a defect. I have a lot of fine, straight, mid-back length hair, and have tried almost every curling tool out there. This is the fastest, surest method out there. I do not use the shields as I found them cumbersome and they left lines and slowed the process; I bought the large plastic claw clips (sold at Ulta now) and they hold securely and go in quick. Since there are no roller teeth to tangle, and the heat is more indirect and from steam, I feel that these are the healthiest curling solution, and my hairdresser agrees. (Unfortunately,since there is no sterilization for foam rollers, they can't be used in a salon) I use these every other day, clean every month by running it with a little vinegar in it. They give a great variety of curl, depending on the roller size used. Follow directions-think steam, not water! One of the best beauty values you can find.

                Buyers beware this is a one at a time curling system. You heat one curler at a time and so on. I found it quite annoying and not exactly efficient for curling my hair. Some may love it, I did not.

                I use this product three times a week for a manegable and lasting style. The st I get a great shine and healthy look to my hair.No frizz or damaged ends. It takes a while for the dampness from the steam to dry on the rolled hair and I don't like having to wait so long before removing the rollers.
