There are 20 rollers in total with 2 sizes. You can create different types of curls by changing the roller size or combine different rollers for a unique style.

Key features of Remington H9100

1. 20 flocked rollers

The set consists of 20 rollers with a flocked surface. This makes it easier to slide them in your hair and gives them a stronger grip.

The rollers come in 2 sizes: 8 medium rollers of 25mm thickness and 12 large rollers of 32mm thickness. You can use each roller size to create a specific style of curls. The medium ones create normal-size curls while the larger ones produce larger, gentler waves. The large curls are perfect for giving your hair more lift while the smaller ones are ideal for shorter hair types.

You can also use both sizes for a stylish mix of large and tight curls.

One issue with this set is that there are only 2 roller sizes. Most sets have 3. Another is that the largest roller size is smaller compared to large rollers in other sets. It’s only 32mm while large rollers normally range between 40mm and 50mm in thickness.

As one customer remarked, the two sizes should be renamed small and medium rather than medium and large. We agree.

This set is ideal for those with short and medium-length hair. If you have long and thick hair, they may not be the best. Consider alternatives like BaByliss or Cloud Nine.

2. Dual heating technology

Most roller sets just heat the rollers. The Remington H9100 works a bit differently with better results. It heats both the rollers and attached clips.

So when you place the roller son your hair, the heat is coming both from the roller and the clip. Your hair sets faster (5-10 minutes) and the curls last longer.

3. Fast heating

The rollers are ready to use in just 90 seconds. Once you set them in your hair, the curls will be ready in 5-10 minutes.

How easy is it to use?

The rollers are easy to use. Just plug in the heating unit and wait about 90 seconds for the rollers to heat to the right temperature. Remember that the unit heats both the roller and the clip.

When they are ready, use the cool touch ends to handle the hot rollers. The flocked surface of the rollers gives them a stronger grip on your hair, ensuring they don’t slip off. Use the heated clips to fully secure the rollers.

Remington says that your curls should be ready in 5 minutes because heat is coming from both the clip and the roller.

In reality however, most users found that 10 minutes is a more ideal waiting time. It produces well defined and more long lasting curls.

When you are done, the cord easily wraps around the base unit for no-mess storage.

What accessories are included?

This set includes the main heating unit with a 1.8m cord, 20 rollers in two sizes and clips.

Pros

  • Different roller sizes.
  • Fast heat up.
  • Salon-quality curls thanks to the dual clip and roller heating technology.
  • Easy to use.

Cons

  • No heat settings.
  • Only 2 roller sizes.

Anything else you should know?

This roller set does not contain heat settings. So you have to be more careful if you have delicate, damaged or dyed hair.

Make sure you’ve applied a good heat protectant, whether it’s a cream, oil or spray. Then know how long it is safe to leave the rollers in your hair. If your hair is vulnerable to heat damage, reduce the styling time to around 5 minutes. For thicker hair, you can leave them in for 10 minutes.

Final verdict

Despite having only two roller sizes which are relatively small, most customers find the Remington H9100 to be perfect for their needs. The large and medium rollers are good enough for most hair lengths.

If you are looking for a budget-friendly set of heated rollers that are ideal for quick everyday use, try the Remington H9100.
