It is time to link up with Whitney and others – we can talk about whatever suits our fancy!

I want to talk about hot rollers! Did you know they are back in style? I never got rid of my last set – until last month. They were the really big size and all the same size and they didn’t give me much curl. I have really fine hair but a lot of it.

I want to apologize if you think I have been talking about this topic too much. This is the last time – I promise!

So, I went to Amazon to get a new set with multiple sizes.

The final product:

I bought this set. I don’t love it. I was trying to save money so I went with a cheaper option. I don’t like the clips and I don’t like the way the rollers are stored on a metal bar. I guess I will get used to it if I use it a lot.

Pros:

It is super quick to roll up your hair and then do your makeup while the curl is setting. You really only have to remove them and go.

It looks very natural – maybe she didn’t do anything to her hair and just woke up like that?

Cons:

I like the curls that I achieve with my 1 inch barrel traditional curling iron better.

Start with clean, straight hair.

I like to dirty it up a bit with the dry shampoo so that the curl holds better. I also like to use this heat spray.

Roll it up!

Take it down and spray with hairspray before doing anything else. Or, at least that is what I do.

Style with comb or fingers.

I could have added a few tweaks with my curling iron but I didn’t.

Curling iron hair:

I guess there is not a huge difference now that I look at the photos.

So, I think hot rollers are a great option and might be all the curl that some of you all might want in your life.

Do you hot roll?

Did you hot roll?

  1. Your hair looks great curled! I have the oldest set of hot rollers and hardly use them because the majority of them are smaller and the curl is too tight. I would love to try a set with lots of larger ones to give me hair like yours!

  2. So much volume! Looks so pretty. When my hair was longer, I would use hot rollers and did love the fact I could do my makeup while they set 🤣all about time management. Now I just use my curling iron as a wand…thanks for a tip from hadley 😂

  3. I’ve used my hot rollers (not the same set) since the 80s, minus the perm years. I like them for the reason you said. I can roll it up, make the bed, make my lunch, eat breakfast, etc and I’m not chained to doing it bit by bit with a curling iron which just seems like a waste of time. I’ve never owed a curling iron so I might be missing out, but rollers work for me! So glad to know I’m back in style. Haha!

    1. That’s so cool! I can’t believe it’s the same set! So true – if you like the curls they achieve it is a no brainer. I also just bought a new old fashioned curling iron for less than $20 and I love it – you may want to try one, too, just to see! I can be done in less than 8 minutes.

  4. OK, second day of reading blogs – priority you know! 😀
    You say that you don’t love the rollers… I love that you DO say you don’t love the rollers! (complicated…) I actually have a set at the cabin, courtesy of my late mother… maybe I should try them? I think you look great with your curls, great volume! I have a set of soft curlers “in a hot case” and I suddenly realize that they are from when I was in high school – OMG!!!!!

    1. I keep trying them because I want to like them I guess. I got a new curling iron and I’m loving it. What is up with me and new hair appliances? Try them! That is funny!
