Heated hair rollers help you curl and straighten your hair. Depending on your hair styling needs, you should choose a hair curler that helps you make the hairstyles that will turn heads. Here is a checklist for buying the best heated rollers for your hair styling needs.
The heating technology
Heated rollers can be sponge heated, ceramic heated or wax heated. It is very important to consider the heating technology applied by a hair curler before you decide that it is the best one for you. Indeed, this should be the starting point. This is because some heated rollers may cause damage to the hair when they get too hot. If your hair is thin and sparse, should get a heated roller that will not cause damage to it. On the other hand, if your hair is curly and sensitive to humidity, choose a ceramic roller that will straighten it and restore its beauty. Wax rollers work for hair types that are the hardest to curl, as they provide more heat that curls stronger than the other types of heated rollers. The Anself Magic is a good example of a sponge heated roller while BaByliss 3045U and Remington H5670 are examples of ceramic and wax heated curlers respectively.
The ease of use
On top of the heating technology of the heated roller, you should also consider the ease of use and how fast the roller cools. There are some heater rollers like the TRESemme 3039U that just slip out of your hair once they get cold. You can use these rollers even as you travel. If you are looking for large and strong curls, you need a heated roller that will grip your hair strongly so that the contact time with the hair can be increased to make strong curls. An example of such a roller is the Diva Professional Styling Stay. Overall, you should choose a heated roller that can be carried around, stored and operated with ease.
Ability to work for any length of your hair
You need a heated roller that will work for your hair length. There are some rollers that will give only small curls to your short hair or long hair. Others will give you large and strong curls irrespective of your hair size. There are still others that will give different hair curl sizes in different parts of your head. Some like the Nicky Clarke NHS005 give uniform curls to your hair whatever the length. It is always good to choose a heated roller that will provide the curls you need irrespective of your hair size. The BaByliss Pro 20 hair curler works for any hair length and type, and it is a good example here. You can also choose a roller of a different size for your hair at every step of its growth. The choice is yours. Bottom line, you should buy the roller that works for you.
In summary, before you consider other aspects such as the price and brand, it is important to consider the ability of a heated curler to satisfy your specific hair styling needs. Once you know which one works for you, you can then compare prices, durability, make, brand and other details.
