Pros: The curlers give you shiny, styled hair quickly.
Cons: Base slides around on smooth surfaces (no rubber feet).
About six months ago I had a hair color disaster which ended up with me having my hair stripped and re-colored twice, so my hair is extremely dry and looks scraggly and unhealthy after blow drying. I purchased these curlers about five weeks ago because cutting off all of my hair was not an option.
I had heard about the Ion Shine products and decided to give the rollers a shot. They are great! While I may not be improving the actual state of my hair, it looks like I have. I've used the curlers every day, and each time my hair is transformed into shiny waves that last all day. I really can't say it enough: These are the best curlers ever!!
The heating unit heats the curlers quickly. In about the time it takes to make your bed they're hot. One of the curlers has a reddish dot on it that turns white when they're finished heating. There are three sizes of rollers, and one size clip that fits all of them. No shuffling around with your other hand looking for the proper size! It takes me about five minutes to put the rollers in, and typically I start taking them out after putting the last one in, which leaves me with waves. Leave them in longer for springy curls. Again, the shine these curlers give you is amazing. Add a little shine serum and it's even better.
