Calista Tools Ion Hot Hair Rollers - Medium Refill
Extra Rollers are a Necessity
I ordered the set of 12 rollers knowing that 12 probably wouldn't be enough for my just below the shoulder, mega-layered hair, so I was thrilled when these refills became available. Now I have 16 rollers, which is exactly the number I need for perfect curls! I like the medium sized rollers and may order another set of refills, as I prefer the medium sized over the smaller pink rollers. It would be nice to have one size larger for bigger curls. The ONLY reason I give these 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the cost. I try not to remind myself just how much I've spent on these curlers and instead focus on the great curls I get.
Thank you for offering these again!
I was sooo glad to see these refill rollers come back to QVC...I could not find them anywhere. The only negative thing I have is - they are just too expensive!
Calista works but is expensive
Right now hot rollers work for my lifestyle. I purchased Calista about a month ago. I use them everyday. They heat up very quickly--I like that. They come in a nylon zippered case which I also like. If your hair is clean it will not hold the curl well (as with all hot rollers). You should be using a heat protectant anyway. Also, going a couple of days without shampooing really helps with the curl and body for my hair. I would recommend Calista but warn of the high price. I give 4 stars just because of the price. The end result of using these rollers would actually be a 5
Please, please restock the Calista medium hair roller refill. I ordered the Calista set for long hair and also ordered a medium roller refill. I find I like the medium rollers the best. I have looked everywhere for the medium roller refill kit, but to no avail. I would rate this product a five star if the refills were readily available.
I think these rollers are to expensive. I have to order more, because 12 is not enough for my hair. It would be nice to have bigger rollers. These work good, but not any better than other brands I have used.I have to roll half of my hair and then take out processed ones and reheat rollers. Not real convenient. So you have to go to more expense to get enough rollers. The long ones are would make to tight of a curl. I am giving a 3 star for the inconvenience and expense of these rollers. If you ;have short hair these would be perfect. I would not recommend these because of the expense involved.
Love this rollers but please please make a larger diameter size. I'm not talking soup can size but two inch wide would be fabulous for those of us who don't want such a tight curl with the purple ones. Thanks Maria!!
I love these rollers. Now I have the long ones and the medium for the top of my head. Calista tools should definitely make a mixed set with a larger base. Its not that big of a deal to switch the rollers because they heat up fast but it would still be more convenient. They are by far the best rollers on the market.
Best Hot Roller Set
I have been using Calista Hot Rollars for 18 months now and they work for me so much better that other hot rollers in maintaining the curl in my hair for 2 days. I had the long blue ones and now that my hair is getting longer - (about 3in below my shoulders) - I need to switch up to the larger diameter size. It might have been cheaper to buy a whole new set because - I like the amount of curl with the purple ones so will probably order another 4 rollers. I also like the fact that this is much smaller and packs well when traveling as opposed to other sets which are big and cumbersome to pack. Can you make the purple diameter in the long roller length?
Hit and Miss
I think that these rollers are both a hit and a miss. The rollers heat quickly, hold their heat and curl my thin, fine hair nicely. I get a very good, long lasting curl. The annoying part are the clips. I really can't stand them. They flip flop from side to side(on side of my head and in the back) and up and down (on top of my head). No matter what I do they don't hold tightly enough so as to not move. Please come up with some pins like the old fashioned hot rollers used to have. I'm going to a beauty supply store to get some. If it weren't for those clips, I would have given these 5 stars.
Finally! Something that Works!
Calista Hot Rollers is the best styling product I have ever used! My shoulder length, fine hair finally holds a curl and gives me great body that lasts all day (no drooping at 3pm). My hair shines and looks healthy. Wish this was around years ago. A must-buy for those with fine hair! While the unit only heats six rollers at a time, you can always replace an extra roller while rolling your hair, so another is always hot for use.
calista hot hair rollers medium set
I liked the set but the only problem is the 1" barrel (grey) rollers are so small and leave a tight curl . I had to order more of the 1 l/2 " barrel (purple) because doing 6 rollers at a time and waiting for my hair to curl and placing them back on the unit to heat up again takes more time than I have.
I feel they should give the option to order the size barrel roller that you want. Now I have 6 of the small that I do not use and I had to spend another $25.00 plus shipping for just 4 more rollers!
P,S. Note:: If you order the large blue rollers, they are still only 1" in barrel size.
Room for improvement
While I like the purple, med-sized rollers, it is difficult to make them stay put. Hope Calista Tools brings out a base that holds 8-10 rollers. I have short, fine, thin, color-treated hair, and the rollers do a good job on the days I do not shampoo. However, for the days I do shampoo, a curling iron works best.
