A killer set of hot rollers is my perfect travel solution to limp, lifeless hair. Many of the sets reviewed here heat up instantly, so you can easily pop the rollers into your hair while you are putting your makeup done and by the time you are all dressed and ready to go, voila! your hairs full of bouncy, volume and life. I've reviewed the 10 best travel hot rollers on the market today and have lla the details below. 

What makes a hot rollers set good for travel?​

Dual Voltage

Many of the sets below are dual voltage, so you don't have to worry about shorting out your curler set when you plug them in an outlet in a different country. 

Size

The smaller the roller set is, the better it is for travel, when you are dealing with luggage restrictions on most airlines. Many of the sets reviewed are mini travel versions of larger full sized roller sets.

Soft Carrying Case

Soft carrying cases are preferred because they can form to fit the other items in your luggage. Hard cases are much less forgiving of space!

THE BEST TRAVEL HOT ROLLERS

Remington H1015 Compact Ceramic

10 rollers

$

9 x 4 x 4 inches

Volume and Curls

Our number one top pick for the best travel hot rollers is Remington's H1015 Ceramic Hair Rollers. These heated rollers feature ionic conditioning which keeps out the humidity and static and seals the moisture into the hair. I especially love that the roller is compatible with world wide voltages: 120-240V and 50/60Hz

This set features ten rollers total: five 1 inch medium sized rollers and five  1 ¼ Inch​ large rollers. These rollers are color coded according to their size for quick styling, the black rollers are medium with the large rollers in pink. These rollers feature a custom J-Clip from Remington which will not crease your hair, although we prefer the cheapie butterfly clips that you can order separately. The heat-up carrying case is soft and perfect for packaging safely into your luggage. 

I love the frizz-free curls that I get from Remington's hot rollers! It's so perfect for travel with it's dual voltage settings and soft carrying case. It heats up quickly and even works in tropical climates because of the ceramic. It's my favorite pick for the number one best heated travel hot rollers!

Caruso Traveler 14 Molecular Steam

14 rollers

$

6 x 12 x 6 inches

Volume and Curls

I love this next hot rollers set from Caruso, it's definitely one of the most unique sets on the list. It is incredibly compact as it only heats one roller at a time but its best feature is also its drawback. You will have to heat the rollers manually, one by one as you go. Fourteen total rollers are included with this set,  with five different sizes ranging from petite to jumbo.

This set is great for travel because it features a dual voltage setting and it's easily the most compact kit on this list. It also features a patented, one-of-a-kind roller and shield design which allows for the moisture to evaporate quickly and evenly. You will need to fill the water reservoir with water, which is different from all the other hot roller kits featured here. These rollers work best with medium long hair, those with hair to the waist might only be able to curl their ends.

I love this set because the curls are long lasting! I have fine, thin Asian hair and it really doesn't hold curl that well generally. Although a little bit more tedious because of the individual roller heated required, the results are worth it!​

Conair is a famous name in Women's haircare and we're featuring their jumbo instant heat hair setter. This set comes with five jumbo 1 1/2 inch rollers.

Use this nifty little travel set to look like just had the perfect blowout! I have thinner hair so the five curlers easily curled all my hair, but if you have a super thick head of hair, it might take 2 rounds to get all your hair done.

I love these rollers for bouncy hair with lots of volume at the roots. If you are looking for gorgeous, voluminous hair make sure to pick up this hot roller set from Conair!

8 x 4.8 x 3.8 inches

Curls and Volume

Conair dominates this list with a third set making it onto this top 10 list. Love the old school pink color of this set! This set comes in a soft and convenient travel case but if you prefer a sturdier case you can purchase the plastic hot rollers case separately for home use. Ten rollers are included with this kit varying from small to large. 

Like all other travel hot rollers, this set features dual voltage. It heats up in just 90 seconds. The curlers have a patented design that allows them to super grip the hair. They don't heat up to blazing hot so there is no risk of burning or damaging your hair. I never like the wire clips that come with any of these sets so I always pick up a set of butterfly clips instead. 

This is a great set for creating a variety of long lasting curl styles with the different sized rollers. It's also damn expensive and truly a bargain pick!

5 rollers

$

6 x 6.8 x 8.3 inches

We are featuring the petite BabylissPro travel set here but you can also upgrade to two large sets featuring up to twelve medium sized rollers for non-travel use. BaBylissPro is a professional hair styling brand but here they are providing their professional grade products for home use.

These rollers feature far-infrared heat for even heat distribution resulting in shiny, non-frizzy hair. Ceramic and ionic technology are also featured here. I love that this set comes with both the metal clips and butterfly clips so you can choose from which style of clip that you prefer.

These are not instant heat rollers, they take 15-30 minutes to heat up but the results are well worth the wait. Your hair will have tons of volume and bounce all day long!

calista Tools - Long Style Set

9 rollers

$$

A - C

Curls

This next hot roller set from calista stands out as you can select, long, medium or short rollers for your specific hair length.  The rollers pictured above are the long set. These are ionic heat rollers, multi-element mineral powders  and they feature two temperature settings. These rollers retain heat longer than the average roller because they have a heating element located in the roller itself.

​These rollers take from 5-15 minutes to heat up. The long set even works on super long down-to-the-waist hair. These come with easy to use plastic butterfly clips. I find the curls here to be longer lasting than some of the instant heat rollers. 

Experiment with the curlers to get your perfect style. If you leave them in for a shorter amount of time you'll get bouncy hair but if you leave them in super long you'll get super curler hair. ​It's great that one set can give you both styles!

Conair - Infiniti Pro Lift & Volume

6 rollers

$$

5 x 9 x 9.5 inches

Volume and Body

We're featuring one last travel roller set from Conair, the Infiniti Pro! This is a six jumbo roller 2-inch set for volume at the roots of the hair and for great body and wave. This set features 30% longer rollers than other sets, holding more hair at once. These rollers are 2X more flocked than the average roller and heat up instantly in two minutes.

The Infiniti Pro set comes with its own set of custom designed butterfly clips but they don't work that great so you will probably need to pick up another set. It is a little strange that the set only comes with four clips when the set features six rollers...​

Well at least the rollers themselves work great! Pick up this set for super sexy wave and body. Perfect for when you don't have time for a blowout on the road!​

ACEVIVI - Instant Heat Hairsetter

$$

7.5 x 7.5 x 11.8 inches

The total heat range is 176-446 Degrees Fahrenheit. This set has an automatic shut off after thirty minutes, great for forgetful people like me. 

Twelve large silicon rollers are included with this kit and they are the only clipless rollers featured on this list which makes it super convenient for travel. These curlers are high heat and heat up in less than five minutes. ​ These rollers roll quick and affix to your scalp for easy styling.
