I purchased this set of Conair Jumbo Hot Rollers from Amazon about a year ago. When I purchased these rollers, it didn't include the claw clips that the set includes now. I purchased those on my own because I prefer the clips that go all the way around the roller. This set includes only two size rollers- 4 super jumbo rollers and 8 medium to large size rollers.
On to my review:
My major complaint with these rollers is that I don't feel they get hot enough. I've seen YouTube review of this product and the girls seem to be almost burning their fingers because the rollers are so hot and I'm able to hold them no problem. I'm assuming this is a problem with just my set and not with all of them.
Due to the fact that my rollers don't get hot enough, I don't feel like I'm getting the best results from this set. My friend Mamita explained that it may be the way I roll them which is preventing me from getting the most volume at the roots, so she needs to come give me a lesson soon!
Now some pics:
When you initially look at the set of the rollers, you may not think there is enough for your entire head, but I have a lot of hair and the 12 rollers fit on my head perfectly. I definitely recommend using these types of clips for ANY hot rollers that you may use.
As you an see the rollers do give my hair a lot of movement, but not a whole lot of lift!
*Gives straight hair great movement
*Available to purchase at a lot of different stores
-Doesn't get hot enough
-Doesn't provide a lot of volume at roots
Would I repurchase?: Unless I realize I'm doing something wrong and these rollers give me some volume, probably not.
If you have any recommendations as to how to use these to get more volume at the roots, it would be greatly appreciated!!
Also, what's your favorite method to getting volume at the roots? I'm willing to try anything!
