Key features of Cloud 9 Heated Rollers

1. Heat induction pod

The O Pod is unlike other roller sets. For one, the pod only heats one roller at a time. This may seem inconvenient and time consuming but the rollers heat up really quickly.

But the most interesting part is how the rollers are heated. The pod uses induction heating which involves electromagnetism. The result is that the rollers heat up within seconds from the inside out. When you pick up a ready roller, it feels warm, not hot. Most of the heat is still inside.

By the time you’ve finished setting it in your hair, it’s hot enough to create nice long lasting curls.

The induction heating method is very energy efficient. As a result, the O Pod uses up to 7 times less power compared to traditional heated rollers.

2. 12 rollers, 3 sizes

The set comes with 12 rollers in 3 sizes: 4 small rollers (30mm), 4 medium rollers (40mm) and 4 large rollers (50mm). You can easily create a variety of curl styles. If you want more volume or gentle waves, use the large rollers. If you want a tighter style with more curls, the small rollers are perfect.

The different sizes also come in handy when your hair grows longer or you decide to cut it short.

The rollers have a unique design. Instead of a smooth hard surface, they feel velvety. Cloud Nine calls them soft-grip rollers. They are easier to wrap your hair around and they help hold your hair in place as the roller cools.

3. Super-fast heating

As I mentioned, these rollers heat up really fast, within seconds. So while the pod can only heat one roller at a time, it doesn’t cause any inconvenience.

By the time you are finished setting one roller, the next one is ready. You can set the rollers in quick succession without having to pause waiting for them to heat up.

You can go as slow or as fast as you need.

How easy is it to use?

The O Pod is easy to use. Just connect the pod to a power source and put in one roller. It will be ready in four seconds. You’ll know it’s ready when it lights up in red. As you put it in your hair, leave another roller in the pod to heat. Use the included clips to hold the rollers in place.

You’ll know a roller has cooled when it turns black.
