When I think about hot rollers, the first thing that comes to mind is my middle school dance. My mom pinned my hair in her mother’s old hot rollers and sent me to my first dance in fifth grade with tightly coiled, curly hair – but these T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers are nothing like those of your mother’s. The Allure “Best of Beauty” winning hair rollers are designed to deliver shiny, voluminous waves to the hair, without the damage that curling irons or wands can cause. The T3 Volumizing Rollers work best with hair that’s at least shoulder length, but T3 offers different sized rollers (sold separately, from 1″ to 1.75″) for various hair lengths and curl preferences – the smaller the roller, the tighter the curl. For my hair length, which is just to my shoulders, the T3 rollers left my hair with soft, loose waves – as if I just came from the salon with a fresh blowout (minus the 25 minutes under a hot blow-dryer and a round brush). Oh, and the base has a 90-minute auto shutoff (for those of us who always forget to turn off our hot tools).
The T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe come in a gorgeous leather-like zippered case with 8 standard sized 1.5″ rollers and clips. Each roller is wrapped in soft velvet to avoid snagging and remains cool to the touch for easy application. Powered by T3’s HeatCore technology, the rollers are embedded with a ceramic heater and an aluminum core to ensure even heat distribution. The base offers two heat settings, I used the higher setting, as my hair doesn’t typically hold a curl without high heat.
After just a few minutes, the rollers are heated – a little white dot appears when they’re ready to use. T3 recommends rolling hair from the root if you’re looking for volume & from the ends if you’re looking for soft curls. I opted to split my hair into sections and twist each piece before rolling, in order to achieve loose, beachy waves. I pre-treated my hair with a bit of Bumble & Bumble Does It All, my favorite all-purpose hair product (if you haven’t tried it, you need to get on that) and started twisting and rolling my hair in 3-inch sections. It took only 6 minutes (I timed it) to roll my super thick head of hair. The clips anchored to my hair and held so well! I never felt like the rollers were falling off of my head. Then I waited 15 minutes and unclipped the rollers. I was left with gorgeous, loose, shiny waves. The best part? I could use the time I would have spent curling or blow-drying my hair to do something else (put on my makeup, read a book, catch up on Game of Thrones). The ultimate test was seeing whether my gorgeous hair would last or fall flat. I’m happy to report that my shiny waves lasted all day long!
WHY I LOVE THEM
The T3 Voluminizing Hot Rollers literally cut my routine in half. I’m able to heat the rollers and roll my hair in a third of the time it usually takes me to blow out my hair or curl it with a wand/iron. Plus, I can multitask while the rollers work their magic. My bleached blonde locks are super prone to damage and I have to be careful about using hot tools, but the T3 rollers left my hair feeling soft, healthy and shiny – without the usual damage of hot tools. Not to mention, I can’t use a round brush and a blow-dryer to save my life but with the T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers, I can give myself the look of a salon blowout without the hassle of an actual blowout. Just a little bit of effort for a salon quality look? Count me in! These rollers will definitely be replacing my curling wand for everyday use. They’re so easy to use, with fast and beautiful results. Could a girl ask for more?
