I am a bit of a novice at using heated rollers but have always wanted to learn how to use them to create volume and give my hair a bit of bounce. The Nicky Clarke DesiRED Rapid Heat Roller System is a quick and easy way of creating the style you want even if you’re in a rush.
The product comes in attractive packaging and everything is safely and tidily packed in place. The box contains six rollers and clips in three different sizes, the base unit which heats the rollers and an instruction leaflet. I read the instructions before using the heated rollers and they were very straightforward. They explain the length of time required for heating the rollers and how long to leave them in your hair depending on how thick your hair is and how much of a curl you desire.
The system is very simple to use making it extremely easy for beginners like me. You place the roller size of your choice onto the base unit. The unit will then flash red until it is at the hottest setting, then you remove it and put the next roller on so it can heat while you place the hot roller in your hair. As I have quite thick hair, I left the rollers to heat until the base unit stopped flashing however, the instruction booklet advises as to how long to let the rollers heat if you have thinner hair. I found it quite easy to use the rollers and clip them in to place after a few practice runs. I managed to create some lovely curls and volume even on my first try.
I would really recommend the Nicky Clarke DesiRED Rapid Heat Roller System to anyone who wants to add volume to their hair whether they are a pro or if they have never used anything like this before. I really liked the loose curls it creates as they looked much more natural than anything I have ever managed to create with curling tongs or straighteners. The roller system feels like a great quality product which will last for a long time. It is also very attractive looking and takes up very little space. I think for such an efficient, high quality product, the rapid heat roller system offers good value for money. I will definitely be using this product regularly from now on.
