This is going to be an extra long post due to this--I'm going to post my review of these rollers and then down at the bottom will be the giveaway rules and forms. So check it out!
The Conair Xtreme Instant Heat Rollers heat up in just 75 seconds and come with clips instead of the traditional pins.
Here are the hot rollers I received for review! They come with twenty ceramic rollers in three different sizes:

|Here are all of the clips that come with the set!|
|Three different sizes: 6 medium .75", 6 large 1", and 8 jumbo 1.25"!|
Here is what my natural hair looks like, dried with no product.
|In desperate need of a hair fix.|
First, let the curlers heat up. When the curlers are fully heated, one of them has a heat sensor that will turn from red to white. They only need 75 seconds to heat up fully!

|I'm so excited about hair spray. I used cheap Suave hair spray!|
|Mousse and dry completely! I used Victoria's Secret So Sexy Mousse because it smells soooo good.|
Next take small sections of your hair, put the roller at the end, wrap your hair around it, and roll towards your scalp:

Then clip in place!
Finish rolling up 1" to 2" sections of your hair until it's all in rollers:

Initially I tried these curlers with the smallest curlers in my top layer of hair and larger and medium ones underneath and here's what I got:
|This is what it looked like relatively soon after I took out the curlers|
|Less Bo Peep---more natural looking curls!|
The next day or so, I tried these curlers again and used jumbo curlers on top and the medium ones on the bottom and ended up with looser curls in general:
Personally, I like this much better. You just have to play around with the size of the curlers and how long you leave them in and find what best suits your hair!
Overall, I loved these curlers. They are so much more comfortable than the traditional hot rollers with pins that I have. Not to mention that since the clips are heated, you get heat not only from the roller, but the clip as well. Since my hair is super layered, the clips also helped curl the stray hairs that normally stick out when I use hot rollers, so it all looked more even. AND the clips also help keep some of the heat away from your scalp. I don't know if I'm just a spaz or what but my old rollers got so hot and would lay on your head and just burn. These don't do that.
My only issues with these curlers were that the clips made the rollers feel very loose. However, since they only need to stay in for about 10 minutes, it's not a big issue. I still could've easily applied make-up or gotten ready without a problem--just no working out or anything with them in ;)
It also would've been cool if there was a secret drawer underneath the product to store all the clips since you can only put 3 inside with the curlers, but I found a cute bag to put them in--so whatever!
Overall, not too much to complain about since they heat up so quickly and end up being so comfortable!
