Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers Review


Recently, I received the Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers* to review. I have also reviewed their Totem Styler (HERE), which I love and use on many of my clients and I wanted to see if the rollers would match up to the Totem Styler.

When I was in my late teens, I went through a phase of using heated rollers but they didn’t seem to achieve the look that I wanted. I love loose, big, bed head curls with lots of volume. It just screams sexiness to me! I have very thick hair, long hair and I was eager to try these heated rollers on my challenging hair!


You receive 20 rollers in two different sizes, which is great, as there are plenty of rollers for you hair and depending what kind of look you are going for, you can just use one size only. All the heated rollers come with individual clips, which ensure all the hair is secure.




The digital dial lets you know when they are heated and ready to be used and it heats up very quickly. I normally section my hair and use a fine comb, as it makes it a bit easier to put the rollers in. The main product that I use is the Tresemme Heat Protectant, because you are still putting heat on your hair and it is best to protect it. I tend to rub some oil through the hair to give it shine and to smooth the curls.

I love the glamorous look to these curls and it’s a fab way of curling your hair whilst doing your makeup. Heated rollers are a great way to style your hair without spending too much time…..when the heated rollers are in, you can get on with your makeup! Great for when you’re in that morning rush!


Many people ask “why do I need heated rollers if I have tongs?”. It’s actually a very good question and I think it’s important to understand what both tools would do and the results that you would get. I always use tongs for when I am looking for spiral curls, whether it be loose or tight. Heated rollers would be used if you want loose curls with lots of volume. I always think of the Cheryl Cole in the Elnett advert! Also, think of the time that you would spend with each of the tools and if you are restricted with time, heated rollers achieve a gorgeous look quickly.

For me the price is a tiny bit expensive for heated rollers, but it would be great as a gift. The only thing that i didn't like was that the rollers got a bit too hot to handle. I think maybe a heatproof glove would be great.....just a suggestion!

I think the quality of Enrapture speaks for itself and I don’t think you would be disappointed in these! They took take a bit of getting used to, as they are a tad bit fiddly!

Below is a tutorial of me using the Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers.


All Enrapture products are half price off at the moment from Argos, Tesco, Boots and Debenhams.

Have any of you used the Enrapture Extremity Heated Rollers? What do you think?

    1. Thank you! The curls lasted about 3 days in my hair and it didn't go frizzy or anything! x

  4. What was the price of these? I was thinking of trying those heated hair clips but hesitant to buy them because of the cost. My hair isn't thick, by any means, but it is well past my shoulder blades. Unfortunately, it loses it's wave very quickly when I use a curling iron (in about 30 minutes) - which I HATE using!

    I do notice that if I dry my hair & then quickly apply a bit of hair oil while it's still warm, then quickly twist it up into knots that it ends up holding waves for quite a lot longer than when I use heated styling products. Several hours, in fact. I wonder if heated rollers would work better for me than a curling iron?

    1. These were provided as a PR sample but i believe in the UK, they are half price off....i think around £35-£40? The curls lasted up until i washed my hair, so about 3 days, so i was mega impressed. Have you tried putting hair spray in before you tong or use heated rollers?

  5. Yep, have tried EVERYTHING :-) Honestly, I hate my hair. Oils work spectacularly on my hair but styling products - spray, mousse, gels, etc - are just crap on me. My hair is long, dry from coloring, has very thin strands & always has even before I started chemically treating it, but there's a lot of it. The only way I've been able to get my hair to hold a wave or loose curls is as I mentioned - blow dry, hair oil (a mix I put together that has more of a liquidy gel consistency) immediately after while still warm, then tightly twist & roll it into buns, for lack of a better world. By the time I'm done my makeup, my hair has cooled & developed some wave. But I usually wait to let the buns out until I get where I'm going so the wind/heat doesn't destroy my hair :-)

    That's not a bad price! I was expecting more. Although I guess they're a tad pricey when not discounted. Wonder if I can find them on eBay? Will have to take a look! Thanks!
