Are Heated Rollers For Me?

Want big, bouncy curls fast? Give heated rollers a try. Heated rollers come in sets in a box that you plug into an electric socket and leave for about 10 minutes to warm up. The rollers are usually ceramic and in three sizes – small, medium and large – to create different types of curls, from tight ringlets to bouncy waves.

Some sets have a light that indicates when they’re heated and ready for use, while others have a dot on the roller that turns a different colour. Once warmed up, they retain the heat for about 15 minutes, cooling down slowly for long-lasting results. The set you choose may come with a temperature control, making them suitable for different hair types. Most sets come with clips and pins to keep the rollers in place in your hair.

What do Heated Rollers do?

Like traditional rollers, they create big bouncy waves or small tighter curls, depending on their size – but in a fraction of the time. They also give hair volume and lift.

The type of curl they create depends on your hair length, the heat of the rollers and the length of time you leave them in. The size of the sections of hair you use will also affect the type of curl you create.

To achieve soft, wavy curls, use large rollers on a low temperature and leave them in your hair for about 10 minutes. For tighter curls, use smaller rollers on a higher temperature and leave for 15-20 minutes.
