I was recently sent the Nicky Clarke Frizz Control Volume Rollers to try and review. I can safely say that my journey in finding a simple way to curl my thick, long, persistently straight hair continues. Looking at other Amazon reviews I am not the only person to be disappointed by this product. The Nicky Clarke Frizz Control Volume Rollers come with 12 separate rollers and clips. The rollers and jumbo sized with a 40mm barrel. They come in a small soft travel size case that can heat 6 of the rollers at the time. The rollers take about 10 minutes to heat up and have a heat indicator on the top that turns white when they are ready to use. I’ve used similar products in the past, very old fashioned versions of this product donated by my Gran and they were fantastic to curl my hair. To start with the curlers can only be heated 6 at a time. This isn’t really an issue as you can add rollers to heat up whilst you apply the heated ones. 12 rollers really weren’t enough to cover my whole head of hair so I ended up using the rollers twice which took a long time. The rollers are hot to hold when applying but not so hot that they burn’t my hands or scalp. I followed the instructions and left the rollers in for over 30 minutes each.
For thick hair it recommends leaving them in for 15-30 minutes. I removed the rollers and used my finger to try and twist them back into the curl. My hair wasn’t curled at all, I was so disappointed with the results. Other than flicking the end of my hair as you can see in the picture the rollers hadn’t done anything. It took around and hour and a half, longer than if I had used tongs and my hair didn’t have loose curls. The Nicky Clarke Frizz Control Volume Rollers might work for adding volume or work better on thin hair but for me this product was useless, as you can see in my results below.
