Rated 3.95 out of 5 stars
I have been using Conair's Compact Hairsetter rollers for more than 5 years. It could actually be closer to 10 years. They work GREAT with my hair which is fine, wavy to curly, depending on length. At this time my hair is long and extremely wavy.
The way I use them is, the smallest rollers around my face - 1 for the bangs and 4 total on the left and right of my face. Then I use the largest rollers on the top of my head going directly down to the back and stop mid-section. Then I use 1 or 2 of the mediums to have more curl at the back-end, where my hair is longest (I want there to be more curl, rather than relaxed). I use the medium rollers on the rest of my hair, which rounds out my ends; works beautifully. When I remove the rollers I shake out for long curls or finger through for shorter prounced curls.
Females of all ages compliment my curls and ask how do I style my hair. When a man compliments my hair I'm like, "really, thanks!", it's surprisingly nice.
I read a comment, someone mentioned these take long to warm up, I've NEVER had that problem and they get EXTREMELY hot - OUCH! hot.
Before I get in the shower I plug them in, or I can also plug them in right before I start to blow dry my hair - doesn't matter when, they are always ready, hot and easy to use. And the stainless steel clips are 110% better than the plastic butterfly clips. I leave them in anywhere from 15 - 30 minutes (depending on time constraint) while I tend to other tasks, which is great as I'm not standing in front of a mirror with a curling iron doing one strand at at time.
I'd like to say I hope this review helps, but truth is everyones hair is different.
This product is adorable with beautiful shades of blue, but I thought that it took a long time to heat up. When I finally got all of my hair in the rollers, I thought they were a little heavy. Even though I had pretreated hair with curl cream, the hair just didn't keep the curl, though I think it may be because I have coarse, straight, long (mid-back) Asian hair. My mom has shorter hair, and these curlers would probably work better for her.

I bought these before Christmas. They heat in about 5-10 min and give a nice curl with volume on fine limp hair. You need to have more 1" rollers and it would be nice if the light turned off when hot.

Other than having more hair than rollers I loved how it made my hair soft bouncy and full of volume

These are the best hot rollers! Good grips, easy to use pins. I love them.
Dani from Michigan
I have extremely long thin hair and found that the rollers weren't long enough to hold my hair on properly. There also was not enough rollers to do all my hair at once. These would be great for little girls because they did hold a curl.

These rollers heat up quickly & are easy to use. I love that it has a pin storage on the unit.

Conair curls and wave roller work so well ots like I just came back from the salon. They are so easy to put in and take out. They make my hair look wavy and full. I would use them every day. I love the sizes of the rollers too. It's nice to have some larger and smaller ones. I plan to use them all the time when I want curly or wavy hair.

This Conair brand 20 roller compact setter is easy to use and a classic hair styling tool! The cute pink rollers each have little bumps that make it easier to grab on to your hair when you are rolling. Different sizes for different sized curls.

The hot rollers warmer is a compact unit. Did not take long to warm rollers. Came with pins, took a few tries to figure out a tight hold but there are varied sizes to match the roller. Keep lid closed as much as possible if left open too long while rolling they can get cold faster. Could use more of the larger sized rollers as I enjoyed the curl that they gave. Overall very nice product to use.
Lilly from Florida
I liked the product, it was good for part of my hair that is not too long, but for the other part it didn't work since the heat didn't reached. I would recommend it for shorter hair. My hair is super long. I am going to use it for my daughter. She really liked it and it worked for her. She has medium length hair.

I had to watch some tiktok videos to get the hang of how to do them but I really liked them! My hair loses curls quickly and these ones stayed!

I received this product for free from Conair and BzzAgent in exchange for my honest review. This hot roller set is great because it's compact, making it convenient for travel. There are 20 rollers in 3 different sizes, with accompanying color-coded pins. The rollers and pins are easy to use, securely hold my hair in place, and are comfortable to wear. I've also found the rollers provide a nice gentle heat, and my hair doesn't get tangled when I take the curlers out. I really like how fast the curlers heat up, and in no time I have soft, bouncy curls that last for hours! This is a good roller set that I highly recommend!

I used to have the electrical curly set and this is the first time and first roller set I have had. I really like the set, I an very busy and this set save lot of my time, they heat up quick and my curls and shapes lasted long. Also after doing the curling, i feel my hair not getting damaged or even dry like the regular iron one. This set is just right enough for my hair but mine is not too thick, if you have a lot of hair, i would recommend to have an extra set to get it done fast. One of other reason I like this set is safety. I have a little kid and he is a curious boy. I feel safer to use this set while he is around than the electric curling iron.

I like the idea of setting my hair with curlers versus using another styling tool.it was quick and easy to use . The product does definitively get hot so I would recommend using it with caution.
Keke from Boston, ma
I love curls in my hair so I was excited to try this product. When it's used right the curls come out pretty tight and voluminous which is great! I feel like these rollers work better for thicker hair because the clips that come with it holds the bigger rollers in tight but not so much the smaller rollers. To get the clips to hold well with smaller rollers you have to use a thicker portion of hair. O have to say that the rollers get very hot which isn't a bad thing but they're hard to manage without burning your fingers. It would be great if it came with heat protectant gloves. In the end though I did love the curls these rollers left me with.

This is now my fav method of curling. I tried this on my daughter and then on myself and loves the beautiful curls.
RiRi from Orlando, FL
This set was perfect. Different size curlers that you can easily take on the go. The curls lasted for quite a while that made me pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with straight hair like mine looking to make a quick change.
Rye from Indiana
I think this is a great product. Loved how easy it was to used and all the different sizing. Super cute when finished. Small and compact size makes it great for storing in my bathroom.
Ann from San Jacinto Ca
I used them in my dry hair and the work very good. I love the texture they give my hair
Missharley1973 from Chattanooga, Tennessee
I love these rollers! They heat up so fast. They are also easy to put in take out. They don't tangle or pull your hair like many others I have used. My number one go to now!
JMarie from Baltimore Md
This is a great compact, hot roller set. I have thin, straight hair that is a little wavy in the back. This roller set easily created beautiful curls in my hair. I also used them in my daughter's hair. She has thick, straight hair. Her curls also turned out beautifully. I love that this is a compact set and doesn't take up as much space as a full sized set. The colors of the curlers are so cute. They heated up very quickly and we're very easy to use. I didn't have any problems with rolling my hair or with the curlers falling out. I definitely recommend and I'm excited to continue creating new hair styles with these.

I received this product as part of the BzzAgent sampling program in return for my honest review. I have straight hair with no wave whatsoever. It is very hard to curl my hair with a curling iron and have the curls stay. I used the medium curlers on the top of my head and the large underneath. The medium turned out really well and the large came out almost straight. I would love to do my head all in medium curlers as the medium curls are holding very well. The top of my head ended up flat, however the bottom half of my hair has beautiful curls with lots of volume.
The curlers get very hot and I wish there were heat gloves included or to have cool edges of the rollers to touch when putting them in your hair. I burned my thumb the first time using the curlers. I also would like the lid to actually clip shut in some way as it only lays closed.
Nessa from Kansas City
These curlers left my hair looking full and smooth. They are super easy to use. I definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to add a little bounce and volume to their hair.
Brandy from Shelbyville, TN
I was thrilled to try this product free. The hot roll set rollers really grip your hair and the clip they provide adds extra hold to hold the roller in place. The amount of rollers will cover your head if you have medium thickness hair or fine hair. If you have thick hair, you may need more rollers. The set heats up quickly and provides good lasting curl when used with a setting spray. The curlers do get hot to the touch, even when rolling by the ends of the rolls. I love how compact the roller case is. Would definitely recommend.

I received the Conair 20-roller compact setter for free in exchange for a review after using the product. I'll start by saying i have very fine hair. I used all but 4 of the rollers provided. I found the unit heats up very fast. I let it heat up for a total of 15 minutes before i started (Although i could have started after about 5 minutes of heating) I was a bit skeptical of the rollers whereas they are made up of hard plastic with "spikes" . I am used to using rollers with felt type wraps to hold the hair. Surprisingly, these went in with ease and i didn't have a problem with fly away strands not wanting to roll up. In total it took me about 10 minutes to use 16 rollers. I left them in until i could no longer feel anymore heat (around 20 minutes) I was shocked at how effortlessly these came out. I usually struggle trying to get rollers out of my hair, they ALWAYS get caught and knotted. I found the curls were bouncy and crisp. I didn't find them to be frizzy or funky looking. As the day went on the curls would continue to fall. by the end of the day i had a bit of wave but not so much curl left. Still looked nice , either way. Overall, these curlers are nice, I would still prefer my curling iorn or flat iron for curls but i could see this being a go to for someone who prefers rollers.
