This blog post is a combination of a review and a video on how to use the Caruso Steam Rollers to curl the hair and my experiences of using the curlers in my hair.

If you are not familiar with the Caruso steam rollers, they are rollers or hair curlers, which use water and steam to create curls in the hair in a few minutes. The Caruso steam rollers can be used by people of all races and on all hair types or textures.

I bought my Caruso Steam Rollers about a year ago and the first time I used them, unfortunately, my hair didn’t come out the way I expected it to. this could have been as a result of the hair being too damp when I initially tried them or possibly because I used too much hair, who knows.

Anyway, yesterday, while trawling through Youtube and watching a few videos, I decided to look up ‘caruso steam rollers’ and came across this very interesting and informative video on how to use the Caruso steam roller system, so I thought I would post it here. I have watched the video a few times and will be trying my Caruso steam rollers again soon courtesy of this Youtube poster, yasjencon. You can watch the video, which is a little further down in the post.

They can be used for hair that has been straightened, I have tried using them on my relaxed hair with new growth and it came out very bouncy and curly, however, I had to use a curling tong or flat iron for my roots as I had new growth.

I ordered my Caruso Steam Rollers online from the USA after unsuccesfully trying to look for them in the UK before I bought them, they are sold mainly in the USA and mine came with a two pin plug, so I had to buy a two pin plug adapter in order to be able to use it here, but that was not a major problem as you can also buy these online. I have added pictures below.

As the Caruso molecular system uses water, I would recommend using distilled water in order to stop it from getting ruined with tap water, which contains calcium and will ruin the steamer.

(It came with a two pin plug from America, you can always buy a two pin plug adapter US to UK, which converts the plug to a three pin – This particular model can be used on foreign currents, so I did not have to worry about buying a voltage converter)

(You add the water at the back – distilled water is best so the steamer will not get furred up with calcium and ruined – can you see the calcium marks at the front? The first time I used it I put tap water inside because I did not have any distilled water. You can buy distilled water from the petrol station, it’s quite cheap)

Update – 26 July 2008

I used my steam rollers last week as I wanted to give my hair a break from my curling tong (I use my curling tongs nearly everyday) and they worked quite well, the only thing is, I couldn’t find my end papers (I haven’t used them in years, so I don’t know where they are), the top of my hair came out really nice and smooth with bouncy curls, but the ends were all frizzed up in some areas, my hair does not usually frizz on the ends, so if you have relaxed hair etc, I would certainly recommend using those end papers. I also noticed that the areas where I put some oil moisturiser, in this case Keracare oil moisturiser with jojoba oil, there was no frizz, although I did not put it all over because I thought it would stop the hair from curling. It actually helped to keep the hair nice and shiny and not greasy in the areas where I applied it, the areas that had no moisturiser applied came out a little frizzy.

After taking the curlers out of my hair, it felt damp, but surprisingly it stayed curly, I was quite impressed. I will be using them from time to time.

You can get a little booklet looking pack of end papers for around 99p if you are UK based.
