Caruso Steam Rollers Review

April 21, 2009

I love my new Caruso Steam Rollers. This review was supposed to be posted a couple of weeks back but I’ve been super busy… so here goes.

I did a test drive on my flat-ironed hair… still not sure if the Caruso Steam Rollers will work on natural hair, but the results look promising. It wasn’t hard to figure out and the instructions were very easy to follow. I filled it with water, plugged it in, and the steam followed after about 20 seconds. After sectioning my hair, I placed the roller on top of the machine for 10 seconds. Next, I flicked the excess water off and curled both sides of my hair. I curled the right side with 4 medium rollers and the left with 3 large rollers. The curlers were left in my hair for ten minutes.

When I took the curlers down my hair looked great. The medium size rollers produced very pretty curls and I would use the large curlers if I just need to bump my hair under. The curls were shiny and just looked plain good. If you’re style challenged like me and can’t curl your hair with a flatiron, use these instead! You don’t have to worry about heat damage to your hair because these rollers only produce steam. I definitely recommend these if your hair is relaxed and I’ll do a test run on airdryed hair in the future to see how the portion of my natural hair will react.

I bought these also and used them on Monday. They were great!! Thanks for putting me on to them.

Also, Dani, I did a bad thing. The healthy hair journey isn’t over but unfortunately the natural one is.

I’m so glad they worked for you :) I forgot to mention that you can use the slide-in clips on the rollers too. If you notice… I have them on the left side because the bigger ones wouldn’t clip tight enough for me.

Girl, I’m just happy that you went so far into your transition. Doing what works for you is never a “bad thing”. Good luck on your healthy hair journey :) Do you plan on stretching your relaxers longer now?

Ohh I’m definitely stretching them longer. I learned so much about hair care during my transition. I would relax every 6-8 weeks like clockwork. Now 12-14 weeks seems more ideal (and maybe longer if I’m able).

I saw those slide in clips, lol. I didn’t have too much trouble after the first two rollers. I was just grabbing big old clumps of hair to roll up. I had to take it a bit slower and do smaller sections and it worked out pretty well.

I did a little review of the rollers on my page (check the blog) on You can check out the pics there :-)

Great review! I like how you pointed out which size rollers you used and what kind of curls they produced. I came across your blog because I was searching for reviews on the Caruso steam hair roller set :)
