    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.

      Great Hot rollers

        Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

        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.

        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.

            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.

              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.

              • Q:

                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
