This is my first set of hot rollers and I love them! I've only had them about a month, but I use them nearly every day. I have shoulder length, thick, wavy hair. I've been using the rollers to create a controlled wave instead of straightening my hair. It's true that the clips do sometimes leave kinks in your hair, but these come right out with a straightener which I use on my bangs anyway. After only a few uses, I started getting nearly perfect results.

I love Conair rollers and dryers. This model is the only one I can find with all jumbo rollers; do not like assorted rollers. However, I do not like the new clips, they are akward; I use my old clips. I have had several Conair roller sets and the plastic top is not very durable, all of the tops have cracked. Does not hold up well for traveling.

    Comments about Conair Xtreme Instant Heat, 12 Ceramic Flocked Rollers Model CHV14JXR, 12 ea:

    I like these, they do what they advertise and do it well. I have a lot of thick long hair, and am happy to see a set of all jumbo/super jumbo rollers. Never had any use for those little ones, who does? Can't comment on the "new" clips, as I was sent an obviously old product, and it had the wire clips HATE that there is no slot on the unit to keep them. Will be a pain.

    Comments about Conair Xtreme Instant Heat, 12 Ceramic Flocked Rollers Model CHV14JXR, 12 ea:

    I use the curlers once or twice a week. I like the way they heat up really fast. I found that the curls stay in longer if I use a bit of mouse on the ends of my hair before I start curling it. I use big, plastic hair clamps instead of the metal clips that come with the set, since they don't stay in well. It is a very good set of curlers for a great price. I have an old Conair curler set with smaller curlers, so now I can use some of those curlers with my new set. No complaints at all.

        1. Doesn't heat as quickly as stated.
        2. Pins do NOT hold rollers in hair and as they fall out, it pulls out the hair.
        3. More time consuming and difficult to use than is worth it.
        4. Tried it, wanted to return it immediately, but policy states can't return if used.

        Therefore, don't even bother, because you will just waste your money.

          The rollers heat quickly, but the clips--especially for the larger rollers--do not hold the rollers in place well at all.

            These rollers do get very hot but it takes a while. I think they are too hot and they burn my scalp. The curler/clip combo does not stay in my hair very securely. And there is no auto-shut off which I really dislike.

                I don't know about you all, but I have struggled with my hair for YEARS trying to make it do what I wanted... I have owned ever type of product and equipment and nothing gave me what I REALLY wanted. I have LOTS of thick hair and I loved that these were larger rollers and not the small ones... I put them in - did my makeup so they sat for about 20 mins... and I was done - they heat up super fast and the result was AWESOME. Great body, perfect wavey curls, soft and natural and yet totally finished. Cut my getting-ready-time by a half hour at least! I LOVE these rollers and will never use my curling iron again.

                  Great easy to do look, instead of blow drying. I put my hair up in the rollers and then do my makeup while they set. If I am in a hurry I will blowdry hair on the cool shot setting to speed up the setting proccess.

                  What I loved about this product what that it combined 2 types of rollers that I use. I had ordered two set of rollers before that I wasn't crazy about. What I did was take a few rollers out from the first set & replaced it with a few rollers from the second set. After a year or so, I was needing a new set of rollers. Needless to say, when I came across these rollers I was really excited. What I didn't like about these rollers was that there was no "ON/OFF" switch. I had to plug/unplug the product in. NOT Good, especially on those days when I am running late for work. The other thing I didn't like were the slits in the rollers. My hair is thin, so strands tend to get pulled within these slots. Other than that, the rollers are great!

                  I have been using heated curlers from Conair for years. I got this set because of the combination of Jumbo and Super Jumbo curlers. The set I have already has a variety of sizes, but there are some small ones that I never use. I want body and fullness--not a lot of curls and that is exactly what this set gives to me. My hair just falls below my jaw, but these curlers can be used with longer hair also. I often set my hair with these curlers between washings, and they freshen up my hair. I think that there is a little learning curve when it comes to using these curlers, but after a few tries anyone can become a pro. I prefer the Super Clips that you can buy separately as opposed to the metal Smart Clips which come with this item. The clips that you see on the item box on drugstore.com are not the ones that come with these curlers. You get metal wire clips that I personally am not a fan of. Maybe with practice I could learn to use them.
