Comments about Conair Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter:

I purchased these hot rollers for fullness of big rollers. The clipd are very flimsy but useable. I will be using the clips from a different set of rollers. Also, there is no inclusive storage so I have to keep the clips in a separate bag. I probably will not buy this set again. There wasn't even a warranty included.

      Comments about Conair Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter:

      The rollers do not get hit enough to curl my hair. What little curl there is it falls out immediately. Also there are not enough rollers to put in my hair all at once. I wish I still had my receipt because I would definitely return them.

      Comments about Conair Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter:

      This product works great on short to medium hair, it is easy to use and works fast. I have long hair and it did not curl the whole strand of hair so I end up with curls only on the ends of the hair. The other problem is if you have frizzy hair you end up with frizzy curls, in this case it is wise to straight the hair first to get rid of the frizz.

          These rollers heat up quickly. There are twelve rollers and twelve claw clips. If I had a suggestion with using this product, I would say to give yourself time to let the rollers cool down before taking them out then lightly spraying the curls before shaking out. I am very pleased with this set.

              I used to using small 5 rolleers big curls pink one for long time (about 3yeas) I loved it.I got tired using pink so I bought blue one, but I din't like it at all. It need to be a individual rollers holder(metal heater) like a other one (pink)
              I bought it because of the color.I returned next day.

              Thank you

                  Not as good as the original big curls. Rollers are smaller and difficult to handle due to hot spots.

                  Comments about Conair Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter:

                  I bought this after reading the reviews on here and I love it! My hair has never look better. It looks like I spend hours curling it when I only spend about 5 minutes. This size curl is perfect for my shoulder length hair and it gives me so much volume. I get compliments all the time when I use this curler. If you want volume and curls and don't have the time or skill to curl your hair, get this!!!! You will not regret it. On the side note, this hairsetter heats up very quick and the clips are easy to apply. I use the plastic ones but it also comes with the old-school metal ones. You plug it in when you want it to heat up and you unplug when you are done. Very efficient. Very easy.

                    I liked the claw clips that came with these rollers, and it was easy to actually roll my long, fine/thin hair, but the curls had visible dents. The rollers heat up on a metal bar, so they have a slit that goes the length of the roller (resulting in an opening along two sides of each roller). These slits left a dent in my hair, so instead of smooth curls, I got hair that looked as if it had been crimped then curled. I returned it.

                        The Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter weights approximately 3.2 pounds. If you are looking for a hairsetter that is ideal for travel, you can try the Infiniti Pro Xtra Long Hot Rollers (Sku #2280686). These rollers come in a soft, easy to carry fabric pouch.

                        The Xtreme Big Curls hairsetter works on all hair types. The rollers have a heat temp of 194-239 degrees F. This hairsetter will give big waves, not tight curls. If you are worried about your hair holding the curl, you can try using a hairspray after curling your hair to lock in the style, such as the John Frieda Frizz Ease Keraforce Intense Hold Hairspray (Ulta Sku #228383).

                      Are the rollers smooth all the way around the barrel? I hate it when there is a split - it makes it more difficult to roll my hair because I don't want the ends of my hair to fall on that break in the smooth surface.

                        A:

                        The rollers are not smooth all the way around the barrel. There is a split in the middle of the rollers, as it is used for insertion on the heating plate to heat the rollers. This prong should not get in the way of rolling your hair. It is angled horizontally on the roller and not vertically.Try putting the ends of your hair on the opposite side of the split so that they do not fall in/on the break.

                        If you are looking for a hairsetter that is smooth all around, with no split in the barrel, try Conair's More Big Curls Hairsetter http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod6501485. This hairsetter has a smooth barrel all the way around, a similarly sized barrel and also the velvetey texture that the Xtreme Big Curls Hairsetter has.

                        Although there is no designated spot to keep the clips, once the unit is unplugged and cooled off, you can store the clips in-between or on top the curlers inside the unit.

                        The rollers are aluminum with flocking on the top. Ceramic is in the flocking coating.

                      Does this have multiple heat settings? If not are there hot rollers you can recommend that do?
