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.

    Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

    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.

      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.

        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.

          Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

          This nicely tamed my frizzy wavey hair into beachy curls and waves that had more body than when I use just a curling iron. I was absolutely delighted with the results after the very first time.

          Bought this to put curls in my daughter's hair for her prom; she's got "stick straight" hair cut in layers so I thought this would be a challenge. These rollers worked wonderfully well... got hot fast, stayed in, and gave us the beautiful curly results we had hoped for. I purchased this for a special occasion but I will be using this more often... even on me, and I have curly hair!

          Comments about Conair Ion Shine Instant Heat Hair Setter:

          I really love this product. I decided on this particular set after getting some guidance from an Ulta store manager, and I am so glad I went with her suggestion. I use these hot rollers to help with vintage hairstyling that I like to do on myself- so lots of victory rolls and pin curls are involved. These curlers give my hair (which is on the thinner and straighter side when we talk about texture) a lot more bend, which makes it easier to curl it into the weird shapes that these older styles require, and the result always comes out looking very cool. I think that a lot of people misunderstand what hot rollers are meant for - if you just want some really beautiful curls, it may be a good idea to curl your hair with this product the day before you want your hair to be curly, because at least with my hair, the curls always come out very tight, and they take a day or so to relax a bit more. Keep that in mind if you are considering this purchase! Also make sure to leave the plastic lid down when heating the rollers up- if you do that, it really doesn't take long for them to get very hot! Be careful when you use them, too.

          • 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
