....not to order without checking the reviews. My husband complains endlessly about the odor of iodine or bleach in the entire house for hours after I've had the rollers plugged in for 5 minutes. How do these things pass the QUALITY test at QVC. ?!!? I have to walk through the house spraying room deodorizer. Have now used them about 40 times and also left them on for hours a few times to try to "burn off" the smell.
Now to the performance: They do give a bigger bounce than usual hot rollers, but I haven't seen any evidence that the curl or bounce lasts longer. I have to spray my hair to try to preserve it. I agree with others that the roller/clips can leave weird crimped marks.
Get rid of the odor and offer extra rollers ( or all one size. ).

I have hair that is thin in areas. This makes my hair look so much thicker. My hair hasn't looked this good in a long time. I use it right after washing my hair or the next day to bring back the bounce.

Not what they claim to be. They do get hot and curl last maybe an hour.
Rated 1 out of 5 by DAVIDANDTAMA Did not work on my long hair
I have bought a lot of curler sets over the years and this was the most disappointing. It didn't hold the curl at all and from the onset of taking them out, they aren't good. I have long, thick blonde hair and was so excited to get them. They made my hair look awful and I made small sections and it took so long to curl the whole thing. It wasn't worth the time or the effort. My hair looked so sad. I used my products before curling and then tried it without them. Nothing worked. It just looked like I hadn't done anything to it. And it made it frizzy, which it isn't normally.

I bought these rollers a while ago...should have paid attention to previous reviews that indicated there was a very bad smell associated with this product..I wrote to the Calista customer service dept..they were prompt in reply but acknowledged the problem...the odor is from the plastic rollers?? I was told to plug them in and let them stay on for several hours and see if it would "burn off"...the other option was to write QVC and return the rollers. I already paid to have the product shipped TO me and now I have to pay to send them back. The smell stays in your hair...my 3 year old granddaughter said "Grammy your hair smells bad"....from the mouths of babes!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Kittycat7470 Very disappointed!
I bought these back in May, I think. First thing I noticed was the horrible plastic smell. Although I thought that would go away in time, it remains. It hasn't diminished at all. The second issue I have is with the clips. They do not hold the rollers in place, and they are pretty sharp. I've stabbed my head many times trying to get them to hold. I do like the way they work, when you get them in place correctly. Most mornings, I put them in after I dry my hair, style the front and then take them out of the back of my hair. I often have to put them in a second time to achieve the curls I want. Maybe these would work better if the clips were more secure (and not so pointy). I would have sent mine back, but I waited too long.

This is a great item. It is a smaller manageable set and works great! I recommend it.

I have short hair and suffer with arthritis. When I saw this on tv, it was used on short hair. But I do wish smaller curlers could be added to be used with the base I have. I like the product except that the smaller curlers fall out of my hair as soon as I use them. Due to the fact we were out of town when the package arrived and I did not use it within the 30 day return policy, I am stuck. Please offer smaller curlers.
