We love curls, but do we really want to spend hours to get them? Of course not!
Rollers have been around for a really long time, and have always been a great way to achieve easy, beautiful curls.
Long ago, however, women were forced to sit under a dryer for hours with their plastic rollers in or had to sleep with rollers in overnight to make sure that their curls set as they wanted.
Luckily, those days are over! Plastic has been replaced by materials like ceramic and titanium to create new and improved hot hair rollers.
With the invention of these rollers, you can now curl your hair in little as 30 seconds!
These cute little rollers are completely hassle-free – they’re hair-friendly, heat up quickly and are super easy to use.

Caruso’s hot hair rollers use steam to create the curls you crave. It comes with 30 rollers, a case to store them in, and of course, the steaming hair setter.
Much like a steamer is used to infuse hair with moisture and soften and smoothen the hair shaft, the Caruso steam rollers condition hair while they set.
This takes just around five to ten minutes, but you can set it in a mere thirty seconds by using a blow dryer to speed up the evaporation of the steam.
Although hot rollers have only shot to their current stage of popularity in the last several years, Caruso’s reign spans back as far as 20 years!
Their newer models, like this one, of course, are new, improved, and healthier for your hair. Caruso’s size range is pretty extensive, too – petite, small, medium, large and jumbo! It’s everything you need.
Babyliss’s reputation for creating hot tools that go above and beyond in terms of quality is certainly present in their hot roller line.

Through this, you can avoid frying your hair and keep it healthy, instead of ending up with a mane full of breakage and split ends over time.
