Travel Perfect Jumbo Size Rollers For Wavy, Covergirl Locks
Truly JUMBO size (1 1/2" rollers) are VERY difficult to find in a travel size, and this set is perfect. I have long (24"), straight, naturally blonde hair that is THICK, THICK, THICK, and this set does the trick for putting in gorgeous, Victoria's Secret style waves.
Design is well thought out: cord wraps around base for storage, metal U-shaped clips store conveniently in front holding slot (put in curve side down for best fit with cover closed), voltage can be changed with simple switch on bottom when travelling, and 5 rollers are just enough for a full setting (2 in front, 2 in back, 1 underneath in back) - and my hair is thicker than everyone I know - and longer at 2+ feet, too. Overall size fits in my carry-on in a minimum of space, and is lightweight.
Personally, I love that metal clips are included, as I find they are far superior to horrid, space-sucking plastic clips. But for those of you that prefer that telltale "kink" in your hair because you haven't mastered metal clips, a set of the plastic butterfly clips is included, too.
I've owned my Babyliss set for over a year, and they work flawlessly. I also own the Helen of Troy Jumbo Travel Set (5 curlers arranged in a straight line), and find these to be much more convenient for travel, thanks to the compact design. The roller design is also easier to use than the H.T. set, as the Babyliss ends don't get so hot that your fingers burn - a common problem with the H.T. rollers. These Babyliss rollers are more expensive, but given how often you'll use them, I'm sure you'll find they're worth their steeper price.
