So classic and well known that reviewing feels silly!
They're Velcro rollers. They aren't my absolute favorite type of roller but these ones are a great price and exactly what I expected, so five stars. I get the feeling many of the low star reviews are people who are not used to using these...you do have to be careful with how you wrap onto them, and you do have to remove them carefully. Regardless, they will grip your hair a bit, but you shouldn't need to break hairs or anything to get them out. Use them on almost totally dry hair with product to air or hood dry to get curls! Also great to put up sections of hair immediately after blow drying that section while it is still hot, that gives amazing volume. They only each hold a small amount of hair, but using all of them I can get all of my thick, wavy, hair up in them. I love the large rollers, but be aware that because there are some larger rollers and not all small ones, these are great for giving hair volume and motion but this is not a dramatic curl set you might get with small hot rollers, or using these under a hood dryer with serious setting product.
took 30 min to get out
I only put 6 of these in my hair and it took 30 minutes to get them out with the help of my husband, could feel all my hair snapping- it was all over the sink by the time we were done and I only rolled my face framing area and center part. My hair is fine in texture, average thickness, and comes to my waist. Maybe if I had shoulder length hair it wouldn't have been as awful, but they definitely did not work, no wave or volume and I had them in a hour. Threw in trash.
These are great velcro rollers, just secure them with a bobby pin so they stay in.
From all the bad comments I think people don't know how to use these rollers.
#1) you are not going to get big curls.
these are for body, lift & volume.
#2) to remove, hold hair at scalp and gently pull roller from hair, don't unroll.
Use the thermal rollers if you want more definition, roll it and hit it with the blow dryer then let them cool. remove in the same way.
If I could give no stars I would
I just got this product and will be returning right away. I have shoulder length fine hair and I followed the steps and when I tell you by the time I was done unrolling them I had so much hair on the sink it was crazy. Pulled all my hair out and it was so painful taking off. Would never never suggest this
Does not hold thick hair
don't waste your money, tried with dry and we hair and they never held... only got tangled in my hair
Rips your hair out
I bought these to add volume to fitting hair only used for around the face frame. Hair was completely dry and thought I could unroll easy, not the case as they get stuck in your hair. Had to unroll and it took forever to do it and hair stuck all over the Velcro on the rollers. If there's a secret to get these out I wish it would be published under the item descriptions!!
The Velcro was tearing my hair.
I need to find large non-Velcro rollers.
