Heated rollers have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, and with so many benefits, it's no surprise that people are reaching for the rollers as an alternative to tongs to create their curls.
Not only are heated rollers great for achieving the bouncy blow-out look that's everywhere right now, they're a low-effort way to get voluminous locks without applying as much direct heat as curlers or straighteners.

Top review: "I have never used heated rollers before as I have always worn my hair straight, however, I wanted more body and lift so I thought I would try these. They are very easy to use, there are three sizes of roller, I like the large ones for more of a wave than curl. The great thing is that they don't make your hair frizzy, in fact, when I took the rollers out my hair was smooth and shiny."

Best heated rollers for long hair
Remington 20 PROluxe heated rollers
Remington's PROluxe set comes with 20 heated velvet rollers for full curl covering, in two different sizes (25mm and 32mm). The rollers promise to set in as little as five minutes, and the clip design helps them to maintain their position without kinks. The Remington has been praised for being great for long and thick hair, but we think they'll be a great option for all hair types.
Top review: "These rollers are truly a game changer and I really couldn't be without them now. They come in 2 different sizes, I like to use the smaller rollers around my face for a slightly tighter curl. The rollers heat up in no time. Then you just roll your hair around the roller and clip it. Once I have my rollers in, I leave them to cool while I do my makeup, so about 10 minutes. The rollers give beautiful bouncy curls that stay in the hair all day. I can't recommend these rollers enough!"

When every kilo counts on your baggage these are compact and easy to fit in a cabin bag without taking up too much space. They heat up very quickly and the clips are easy and smooth to slide and hold the curlers in place. I have a lot of hair and there is more than enough to do my hair which is below the shoulders."
