A set of hot rollers comes with four to 40 curlers and a set of hair clips or pins to keep them in place. There are several different sizes of hot roller sets, so pay attention when you buy new curlers. Keep in mind that the smaller the curler, the tighter the curl and the jumbo sizes can actually be used to create waves. Most hot rollers have diameters that range from about an eighth of an inch to one-and-a-half inches.
Many moons ago, the use of cold curlers was common place. Women would shampoo and condition their hair, then apply rollers made of Styrofoam, plastic or metal to damp, almost dry hair. They would cover the curlers with a hairnet or bandana and sleep with them in their hair, removing them in the morning. This was uncomfortable, to say the least, and far less effective than hot rollers.
