    I have an older model of this product with only 12 rollers, and they're all the same size. The set of 12 always worked well, but since I have waist-length, extremely thick hair, I have been looking for a larger set with more versatility. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. The older model does the same effect that this product gives, only this one seems to heat up much faster and has more versatility with the rollers. I still use the older model on the underlayers of my hair, along with this on the top layers, so I don't have to do several runs of the same process. My hair is dry and very frizzy, and I live in an extremely humid, hot climate making my hair flaws even omore of an issue. Using this, (along with the right conditioners, shampoos, gels and botanical oils) my hair stays frizz-free, shiny, silky, soft and voluminous all day. Even after it gets wet, after it dries, it's still soft and smooth.

    This product is great. And I have no idea what the big fuss about te clips are, they work perfectly fine.

    The heat up light doesn't work so you don't know the rollers are ready. The clips DO NOT hold the hair on, one tilt of the head and they all fall off. The clip leave BIG creases in your hair. This is going back and I would never suggest it to anyone.

    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Ceramic Ionic Multi-Sized Flocked Rollers, Model CHV26HCX, 20 ea:

    I have long, straight and very thick hair. I've never owned hot rollers before, but these seemed just okay. I purchased two sets so that I could roll all my hair at one time, but unfortunately the smallest size roller (which they call a medium) made tight kinky curls that didn't blend with the other curls/waves made by the large and jumbo rollers. I found that the quick warm up time stated by the instructions wasn't enough. I had to follow a friend's advice and cover the set with a dry towel then wait about 10 minutes. Even then the rollers are barely hot enough to burn my fingers. Good for safety, not so good for curls. So, as I expected, my hair looked wavy and great initially, but the curls mostly fell out by late afternoon. The heated clips seemed like a good idea, but they have a hard time holding up anything but the smallest section of hair and they leave kinks in your hair. One great positive: these rollers seem to make my hair extremely soft and shiny and that effect lasts until my next shampoo.

      This is the best hair setter ever made except for the plastic cover. I have used them all my life. I have long thick hair & the ION makes your hair like silk & so soft & my curls last. I get compliments all the time. I also have 2 of the small travel setters & they work pretty well. I gave it a 4 because of the plastic cover which is cheap. I only had my 2nd hair setter a couple months and someone bumped it while the cover was open & it broke in several pieces so this is my 3rd purchase (man, I will have to build a fence around it!!) Yea I could still use it, but the cover is in pieces so it would be a pain each time. I read that someone uses the Conair Super Clips. I just ordered them today too. The wire ones work, but these look like they will work a lot better.

      Love it, Love it! I am getting a second one so I can add in smaller curlers for different styles and for backup (don't want to be without EVER!). Also, for those of you having trouble with slipping, I NEVER use the clips. I have ordered Conair Super Clips that keep the curlers IN PLACE for SURE, including those slippery travel curlers! THEY WORK!

      The best hot curlers I've ever had. I bought a travel version of similar ones (but not ion shine) & they weren't nearly as good. My hair is so shiny & smooth! Really awesome product.

      Comments about Conair Instant Heat Ceramic Ionic Multi-Sized Flocked Rollers, Model CHV26HCX, 20 ea:

      The only reason I give this two stars is it might work for someone who has naturally wavy hair before curling it. If you have silk-like, stick straight hair (like mine) this set will NOT work. Reason? The rollers are flocked & flocked rollers do not work on stick straight hair. They don't create a strong curl that lasts with that hair type - flocked rollers are too gentle because silk straight hair usually has a thick cuticle that is hard to get through. You need rollers that are not flocked. Revlon makes a non-flocked set, as does Vidal Sassoon and Conair. Other than that, the clips with this set are standard and they work fine to keep the roller in place if you know what you are doing. I have used hot rollers for years and years, and it is getting harder and harder to find non-flocked sets.

      I like these rollers, and am on my second set, and am about to get a third. The set of clips that came with the first set were annoying, but the second set were just wire ones, and they were better. You do have to watch that the heated metal parts of the roller do not touch your skin, which for me are only the rollers near the forehead. But otherwise they are as comfy as possible, and they do give a nice set. My problem with these rollers is that the lid of the whole units cracks after a while. That is why I am getting my third set!

      I purchased this 6 weeks ago. It's a nice product- heats fast, stays hot, and gives very nice smooth long lasting curls/waves. The clips (while they can droop in some areas) are best mastered with placing closer to the scalp or experimenting until you find a firm grip and use that contintuously. I've been using hot rollers for over 20 years and think this is one of the best. I'd lkke to see a small (very small) travel size developed for a reasonable price.

      I own this set. It is my very first set of hot curlers. I have no experience with them, but I found this set to be very easy to use. I love the clips! I have NO IDEA of why some here are complaining about the clips. They are easy to figure out and use. You wouldn't even have to read the instructions to know that you just clamp the darned things on the roller in order to hold the roller on your hair. I have no problem with the rollers staying in with the clips.
      Also, they leave my hair full of body....just what I was wanting. Very nice, bouncy curls.
