Love these rollers!!! I have long, thick hair and I even have a couple rollers left over after I've put them in my hair. Makes my hair lovely and curly, even hours later I have lots of lovely volume. Definitely recommend.

I have thick hair. There are not enough rollers to cover all of my hair. I found that the clips are completely inefficient at holding the roller - they slip down and can quite painfully pull at the hair and several repeatedly fell out. When I took them out, large sections of my hair wasn't curly because there weren't enough rollers to cover it properly and I had to turn it on and try again a second time.
The last time I had heated rollers, several years ago, it was a much cheaper set and they were stress free - easy to put in anf forget about whilst doing my makeup. These are a pain to use. I'm very disappointed in these and wish I hadn't spent so much money on them.
Everything about this product is classy- from the high quality packaging, to the lovely booklet, to the rollers themselves. I am growing my hair, currently just past my shoulders, and have been experimenting with various hair styling tools, that help with achieving volume and shape without too much fuss and, ultimately not too much damage to my hair.
These heated rollers live up to their claims- they heat up in 2 mins and are easy to put up in the hair, due to the ingenious delayed heating mechanism. The rollers coating is lovely velvelty one which means hair stands are treated well and after styling have amazing amount of shine. I have thin hair that tends to flop flat on top, but as it is wavy, I have always struggled to find a suitable way of styling the ends in a way that gives me a smooth, defined look. I used the Enrapture rollers after I let my hair air dry. I applied all 20 rollers, using the bigger ones on the top of my head and the smaller ones below. I left them on for around 30 mins and after taking them off, simply ran my fingers through my hair. My hair was full of volume and lovely waves, which were not too structured, which was exactly the effect I was after. It's the only styling tool I have used that has achieved a style that does not flop after a few hours- on the contrary, I actually loved my hair even more as the day progressed and now, on the second day, it still looks nice and full-bodied. My hair has a lot of shine and a lovely swishy quality to it. My husband kept complimenting me on my hair, but most importantly, I felt so good about finally being able to achieve an easy volumpous glam hair, which I am sure any woman with thin hair out there wishes.
I have never used heated rollers before and feel I did a good job for a first attempt, but could improve on my skills, and with like any other hair styling tool, it takes a bit of practice to achieve amazing results. However, even for a novice, it only took me 5 mins to put them in my hair, and then I was able to get on with other things before it was time to take them out. As far as I understand the technique, it is vital to only use a small enough section per roller to achieve definition and volume at the root. The booklet that comes with the Enrapture rollers gives a sufficient explanation about the basic techniques depending on the required hair styling, which combined with youtube videos, is enough make it easy for anyone. What I find most advantageous about this set of heated rollers is the combination of ingenious heating, good sizes of rollers for achieving volume and shape, high quality coating and clips, which I hope would help let me style my hair easily without too much damage. Overall, I am very happy with these rollers, i feel I've finally found a tool that's practical and quick to use and kind to my hair, and which helps me achieve the glam hair I've always dreamt about.

Having read all the various reviews (especially by Barbje) both on Amazon and Google I decided to take the plunge and buy these FANTASTIC rollers. All I can say is that I should have done it a lot earlier. They are wonderful, so easy, so very quick to heat up (no long waiting times), just literally one minute! Then you must switch off, (do not leave on) put into your hair then leave to cool. You will end up with the most fantastic soft and gentle curls. What more can you ask. I am so glad that I bought these in preference to the others.
