Hot Rollers anyone?

on Dec 06, 2011 @ 01:05 pm

I've been hunting for the perfect set of Hot Rollers .... and I'm reading mixed reviews.  Some are raving about the cheaper Connair hot rollers, while others are going on about the T3 hot rollers Sephora sells.  One one hand I'm being told that the cheaper brands do the same job as the expensive, on the other I'm hearing the T3 has tourmaline technology which lessens hair damage and enhances shine.  I'm really torn on which to get.

I have the traditional curling iron and it works great, but it's very time consuming.  I want something I can put on my semi dry hair and leave it on while I apply makeup.  Once makeup is done and I'm ready, I can take it off and voila, soft / loose curls. 

Have you ladies tried rollers / hot rollers in the past?  What's your experience and which would you recommend?

I have naturally wavy hair so my hair takes well to hot rollers. I've used cheap ones and expensive ones with similar results, though never actually owned a set myself that I've used over a longer period of time.

I think it will probably come down to your hair type. My daughter has stick straight hair that will only take a curl with loads of styling products used.

I have both electric and the steam kind and I much prefer the steam. Its a little more time consuming steaming each roller before putting it in but they cool down in my hair faster..and I like to imagine the moisture helps prevent damage. :)

mamaluv I have wavy hair too, and it takes well to curlers and holds curls even without any product in. I'm just a lazy bum who's looking for an easy way to get a 'done' look with least amount of effort. It takes forever to curl my hair using a curling iron, so I figure if I can pop in a few rollers and leave 'em in while I do makeup and get ready, it'll do the hard work of curling my hair for me :-)

guppy I've heard about the steam rollers! They seem very neat, the only thing, I'm trying to avoid the whole time consuming thing :( how long does it take to steam roll?

ladies I went and bought the Sephora T3 hot rollers. You can read the description and user reviews here

I just picked it up last night so not had time to use it yet. I will definitely try it and review it here :-) Hopefully it works well!!! It should for how much it cost ... in store its $119 plus tax.

I was really debating between this one and the connair, but what set my mind to this is the thought that an expensive straightening iron is by far better and at the end of the day more cost effective than a cheap alternative. The expensive one does the job well, doesn't damage your hair as much and lasts longer than the cheaper ones. I thought perhaps same theory might apply to hot rollers, so went with this. You can call this my xmas gift to myself, like the poll said ;-) hehe

Hey Ladies,

I've been more and more inclined to try hot rollers. They seem to be coming back into style but no one seems to have good reviews/recommendations.

Get the cheaper ones! Just don't get the ones with teeth! As a hairdresser I can tell you yes sometimes it matters with tools, but the concur cheap ones will be fine as long as you aren't using the old old kind that have teeth, don't use those!

I am really looking into steam rollers, because they are easier on your hair and I've noticed it makes people hair look very glossy and healthy.
