    Comments about Conair Compact Hairsetter:

    My first set was over 15 years old and the rollers were blue. We bought a vacation home and 1 bought a set for there. My first set has since worn out and I was fortunate to buy the same set now with pink rollers. Conair gives you the opportunity to buy additional rollers at a very reasonable price to customize what you need, I need more medium rollers rather than large and small. I had to borrow hot rollers by another manufacturer before these arrived and they burned my scalp

        Comments about Conair Compact Hairsetter:

        I too replaced a set of old hot curlers I have used for over 20 years. But these are no good.. The second time I used them, I plugged them in and took an average shower. When I tried to use them, they were so hot I could not hold them without burning my hands and hair. The plastic on the rollers was melting onto the base of the macihine into puddles. They clearly overheated rather quickly into a dangerous situation.

            I've used electric rollers for years and my most recent set had "burned out". I was happy to find this set because the rollers grip the hair well and work quickly.

                  Replacing 30+ year set that top broke. Have fine hair. Love roller sets over curling irons, plastic rollers loose heat quickly, but does a good job of setting curl. Red on light only shows that set is heating up, stays on unless unplugged. One pink roller has a "ready dot" that goes from pink to translucent when hot temp has been reached. Took about 12 minutes. Love compact size.

                    It is Very difficult to find hot rollers that offer a variety of sizes (3) and clips that do not pop off with thick hair.
                    This solves all my problems. L!

                      I wanted to love these rollers! I have a very old set of Conair rollers I was looking to replace. These did not heat up quickly, and they did not hold the heat very well. There was supposed to be an indicator dot on the rollers to show when they were at the correct temperature and it was not visible.

                      Overall - The rollers work well as far as a tool - easy to use, good metal clips, did not tangle in my hair - but I had very little curl from them. I wonder if the heating element in this set was defective? I will try to return for another set to see if there is any difference.

                          Hello Meridolly,

                          The rollers do NOT stick in the hair. You have to roll them around your hair and the unit comes with "20 color-coded stainless steel clips - store inside the setter".
                          You use the clips to hold the rollers in while curling your hair.
                          Thank you, Justine
