        Comments about Conair Compact Hairsetter:

        I have naturally curly hair so I use rollers to straighten my hair into more manageable curls. The only thing I dislike about the product is that I need to remember to take the clips out before heating or they get too hot to touch.

          Comments about Conair Compact Hairsetter:

          These reminded me of my teen years when hot rollers first came out from Clairol. I had some others I bought that were velveteen coating on rollers. I hated them, because they would not curl my hair. THESE FROM CONAIR ARE GREAT AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT AS WELL. KEPT MY HAIR CURLED FOR 2 DAYS BEFORE I REWASHED MY HAIR. And being in my 60's I have tried several other brands. LOVE THEM!

            I was not happy that it did not have extra clips, in case I lost one, but when I went to the website I found I not only could order extra clips but extra rollers to cusotmize my need for the medium size. I also like that the heating rods are equally spaced apart so any roller can be used on any posts to accomodate the extra medium rollers I bought.

            Being between stages on my hair growth I needed something that would put curl in & it stay. This is great & quick. I leave them in about 20-30 minutes as I do my makeup & get dressed before I take them out. Curls OK as all day.

              Great price, but does not heat up fast enough to curl hair repeatedly.

                  It is very hard to find rollers with wire clips. The plastic ones leave ridges in your hair. Love the wire lips

                  • Q:

                    Since I use a flat iron at 400° to strighted my hair, I have found some hot rollers to cool to curl my hair. While I don't expect the hot rollers to be THAT hot (I couldn't touch them). I'm just wondering if you think these would work for me. I only plan on using them on the top layer to create some long loose curls.

                      A:

                      The smaller the diameter of the roller, the tighter the curl. Rollers will curl most hair types.

                      A:

                      Hair should be clean and dry or slightly damp - never wet - when setting. Hair will not set correctly if too damp.

                      No, this product is not dual voltage. To use internationally, you would need a voltage converter and plug adapter (not included).
