Review / Hair Tutorial : Conair Heat Waves (Hot Rollers)

Conair is one of famous hair tools/accessories in the States. They are known as good products yet affordable! I love Conair , i have their flat iron and few days ago i eventually got one of them hot rollers.

So i picked the one "Heat Waves" that comes with 4 super jumbo rollers, 8 jumbo rollers, and 12 wire clips. These jumbo rollers are perfect for long hair like mine and creates beautiful bouncy curls which i have been rocking for 3 days already! The purple wire clips go with purple roller and black wire clips go with black roller.

 This hot rollers heat up pretty quickly only in 85 seconds which is such a time saver in the morning! You want to make sure your hair is in damp/dry condition. You dont want to use this when ur hair is wet! What i always do in the morning, i just spray heat protector all over my dry hair and brush through so it kind of damp and being protected from the heat.

And this might be best thing to read first before using this hair appliance :) (click the picture to see it in large size)

When you see the red dot change to white dot, it's ready to rolled up on ur hair. Here i present my illustration of how i section my hair and apply this on my hair. 

Now how i roll them up on my hair?
Section No 1 : Roll them toward your face
Section No.2 : Roll them toward your face again (i used to think it suppose to be away from your face, but i didnt like the result on that way at all!)
Section No. 3 : Roll them away from your face

The technical term for this setting is called "Basic 9". Basic 9 is starting from the center of your head and you take horizontal parting from the bang area all the way down of the head. And then you have sides part left where you want to divide each side into 2 sections.  Look these pictures below to see it in action.

Well guys i hope my illustration pictures arent confusing to you! After i rolled them up on my hair, i let them sit for 15-30 minutes depends on how long i done my makeup and prepare my lunch bag. It usually takes me around 30 mins to do both of them.  But 15 mins should be good enough if you really dont have many things to do. Don't forget to apply some hairspray few minutes before you ready to take the rollers out. And now these are the final result from the hot rollers :

I have such thick and coarse hair that holds curls really well compared to fine hair. So these curls last the whole day for me! :) Thanks to my mother and God for giving me this type of hair!

After 10 hours : 

If in case you guys have a fine hair, i recommend you to use good hairspray that holds style real strong. Tresemme or L'Oreal would be your best bet from drugstore. Try Paul Mitchell Hairspray or Sebastian Professional. I love them and they work really good. They really do hold the style in place!

This Conair retailed for around $29  to $30. I got mine from Walmart and im sure you can get this from any drugstores. 

Pros :
- Affordable
- Works very well , producing a big curls like how i want it.
- Heats up very quick
- Easy and quick to use in the morning
- Curls last very long
- No frizzy looking 

Cons :
- The wire clips tend to hurt my scalp sometimes ( feel uncomfortable)

Do you have these amazing hot rollers?
