The first time I have used ceramic rollers, used to use the old style Carmen electric rollers (the ones with the spikes all over them, and not very comfortable to use). I am one very 'happy bunny' and one with nice curls now.
I would say that if anyone was looking to purchase some heated rollers then these are the Rolls Royce of them, well to me they are. Plus they treat your hair well with them being thermo-ceramic, and that is something to think about as usually heat can damage hair if used too often, but you can look better without damaging your hair with these.
I was really pleasantly surprised with these, turned them on, whilst looking at the various clips and bits that come with them, (clips, and bulldog grips come with the kit and are so easy to use) then proceeded to use them. They don't hurt, nothing sharp or spikey on them, therefore nothing for your hair to get caught up on which the old fashioned ones had to tendency to do. You get 8 large, 6 medium and 6 small in the set, which I found adequate in number. The smallest size does give you really lovely tight curls after 20 mins and ones that don't drop out after a couple of hours.
They are really light when in your hair, so light I almost forgot I had them in and carried on doing the dusting. To be left after roughly 20 minutes with curls that I didn't realise I could have. My normally straight, well scrunched up fringe was left feeling and looking curly and body given to my hair. I have past shoulder length thick hair and these just are ideal, cann't believe the effect of the curl, even my husband noticed the difference and in a nice way. Why bother paying so much at the hairdressers when you could buy these and do your own hair easily at home and think of all that money you could save, but not compromise on your looks.
The bulldog style clips you get are great for using when putting the bigger rollers in, the smaller rollers are best with the clips. A great bit of kit which includes everything you need to do a good job. No I didn't get a burnt scalp or any pain when using these oh and no burnt/singed hair.
What is even better is that set also comes with a guarantee and not just a 12 month one.
Easy to use just wait until the dot on the big roller turns white and away you curl, does say that if your hair is thinner or coloured to not put the setting on too high, but the instructions are easy and clear to understand, and not with about ten different languages printed, just in English.
These could make a brilliant present for any lady out there.
I am converted with these and will make them part of my normal hair routine now.
