Returned as I needed more rollers, thought 5 would work as my hair isn't real thick, but sadly it didn't.

    Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

    the curlers are easy to handle, doesn't take up much room and the five rollers gives me just enough lift on the top of my hair. I have fine hair and getting the "thicker" look or volume for me is hard, but these rollers do the trick.

        Pros

        • Dual-voltage
        • Jumbo Sized Rollers

        Cons

        • Not Effective
        • Not Enough Rollers
        • Smells Bad When Heating
        • Too Large For Travel

        Best Uses

        • On-the-go

        Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

        I would give this product a mixed review. What I liked was the jumbo sized rollers as well as the dual-voltage that could be used while vacationing in Europe. I did not like the following: Too big/awkward for travel, The 5 jumbo rollers included in this set will only curl about 1/2 of your head at a time; They smell bad when they heat up; If you don't have the rollers seated perfectly before plugging them in, they don't heat up properly.

          Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

          I have fine, medium-length hair that is very frizzy after blow drying. These were just the answer. I can get all of my hair into 5 rollers. I use a heat protectant before drying and rolling and my hairii feels healthy and has just a really nice wave to it. LOVE these rollers. A really great price. If you have extra thick or long hair, I would imagine that you would want the larger set. I love that these rollers are just the right diameter to make my hair look great. The old fashioned ones made your hair far too curly. These make my hair look like a pro styled it.

                  Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

                  My hair is medium length, very straight and very fine. Blowing it dry with a round brush is a good solution, but these rollers are easier! If I leave them in too long, my hair gets a little too bouncy ~ but taking them out after 3 or 4 minutes makes ends look smooth. Glad I found them.

                  Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

                  This is a great product for adding volume at the roots. I have thick but flat hair. I throw these in right on top of my head while I get ready and it adds a bit of volume. These aren't good if you want to actually curl though.

                  Takes too long to heat up

                  Comments about Conair Big Curls Travel Setter:

                  This is my second set of this exact set of rollers. The first I had for 8 years. The only reason I got a new set is the heat made the plastic on the rollers brittle and broke easily. I was so excited to see that these were still being made. My only complaint is I have to set my alarm 30 min earlier so they can heat up. Not happy with that at all.
