It took over a year for my perm to grow out and it was a tough year, I tell ya!
Now that it’s finally back to a ‘human’ state, and is straight I can curl my hair again! Hurrah!
My favourite kind of curlers are rollers! I find conventional curlers some what tiring to use (I have so much hair) and it takes ages (roll, hold, repeat).
I do own some Babyliss Quick Lift Rollers which are AMAZING but there’s a few issues with it – it gets so hot it actually hurts to pick them up and the clips come in a separate bag so it’s very easy to lose them.
So I got my paws on these Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers!
They can be used on any hair length as long as your hair can fit around the roller once and can add extreme volume to short styles such as a bob. Plus, once you get the hang of it, setting your hair in heated rollers can be done in a matter of minutes and your styling complete in the time it takes to apply your make-up.
The rollers come in a big box and are very well packaged. They are bulky – all heated rollers are unless you buy those bendy rollers that were in when I was 16.

I wonder if this set would be even better if there were 3 sizes like with the Babyliss? To be honest I almost always ended up just using 2 sizes most of the time but then again I have always had fairly long hair so have no use for really small rollers.
The Extremity Heated Rollers have ‘Duo Heat Technology’ which means they emit heat from the core and the butterfly clips have a metal interior which also conducts heat.
These also heat up in 2 minutes which is VERY important to me as I have zero patience – but you do need to leave them in for 10-20 minutes to get the full bouncy curled effect!
I REALLY like how the clips cover the rollers and is stored this way. I really did keep losing my clips for my other rollers and this way there’s no risk of that.
There is a plug at the back of the machine and there is space under the unit to wind up the cord.
The rollers have a velvet kind of feel to them – they are easy to touch once they’ve heated up, they don’t burn like the ceramic Babyliss ones which seriously get so hot.
See the metal core in the roller?
The unit has a number of metal rods going across it which is where the roller slots on.
It did take a bit of practise to get the roller in nice and firmly. The velvet roller doesn’t, I don’t think, naturally grips on to the hair so I had to wind it well round twice with both hands, holding the end in place, then quickly get the rest of the hair on before popping on the clip (which gets warm too).
Here I used this on Megan (the teen – well she’s 11 so not really a teenager yet) who has very very straight Asian hair no styling products.
It created a really loose natural wave
I like it! It didn’t create really contrived, slightly beauty pagent curls, it was far more natural and wearable which is what I like.
With a styling spray, these last all day on me which is good because I have that tough to curl Asian hair thing going on.
Enrapture curlers cost £74.99 from Boots. Not cheap but a good investment if you want curly hair and prefer rollers over tongs (I think it makes you more hands free).
