These 3 Heated Hair Rollers Have the Highest Ratings on Amazon

Remember when heated hair rollers were a thing? They were once the gadget so many of us relied on for big, bouncy curls that could rival even the best blow-dry, but then curling tongs happened and we got cocky. We might have thought that these newfangled gadgets would fulfill all our hair dreams in a twist of a strand and flick of the wrist but that was foolish: Unless you have the nimblest of hands, asbestos fingertips and the hand-eye coordination of a surgeon, they're not actually all that easy. And that's exactly why we're petitioning for the return of the heated hair roller. So simple that all they require is wrapping a section of hair around a warm roller, clipping in to place and leaving them to do their thing. And as they don't reach that same volcanic heat of a curling wand, they're also much better at achieving those loose, lived-in curls.




The only problem is that they can be so hit-or-miss. Some barely get any hotter than a forgotten matcha latte whilst others don't have enough grip to cling to hair and fall out with every turn of the head. And then there's the important consideration of size: anything too small will leave you with china doll–esque ringlets, anything too big will barely leave a wave. We turned to trusty Amazon and it's comprehensive reviews to work out which ones are actually worth our money and found the three most impressive sets, each with over 4.3 stars, so you know they've got to be good.
