Re: Can you recommend good electric rollers?

I have a set by Conair that I like.  I've had them about 5 years.  They have 4 jumbo and 8 large rollers.   The rollers are coated with some sort of foam so there are no teeth .   I prefer no teeth because I remember in the old days, my hair often got 'caught' in the teeth.

I ordered this set.

They had pretty good reviews on Amazon.

Fingers crossed.

I can only imagine how glamorous I'm going to be!  😉

Re: Can you recommend good electric rollers?

Instead of the teeth, foam or any other gripper on the roller,

I relied on the clips for hold.

 

When I retired my hot rollers, I would blow-dry my shorter hair &

when it was still warm, I would use those smooth plastic 

rollers (Walmart) & hold them using these clips.

Gave a nice finished fullness w/out the hot rollers.

 

These are what I used:

Conair is reliably good and affordable. Easily available from Ulta or Walmart. I’ve used them for many years! They’re the best! Makes hair styling for fine, straight hair really easy.

House cat...I have that set!  It's pretty good but like others have said those good old wax core ones are the best.

I did buy a set of those clips, as well.

 

Oops, on closer inspection I should clarify - I purchased clips that fit around the Conair rollers.  I think they will be easier to use than the horse shoe shaped clips that come with the set.

Soft 'N Style Butterfly Clamps, Assorted Colors, 1 DozenI was never able to get the horse-shoe clips to stay in, so years ago I bought these clips and smaller ones to use with the hot rollers. They are cheap and you can buy them at Sallys.

Re: Can you recommend good electric rollers?

Conair makes silicone rollers, which I think are the best! They smooth out anything that may have happened in blow drying, and give hair body & bounce!
