My first set of electric rollers! And the above pic is the EXACT set! I was probably 12 or so, and man did I look GOOD after setting my hair with rollers steamed to perfect finger-blistering temps. You used the little enclosed cup to dump water into the reservoir under the metal rods of death, where it was boiled, yes boiled, with the ensuing steam heating the rollers.
I always found the bubbling sound and the strange aroma of steam and hot plastic and metal rollers to be oddly comforting.
The steaming facial mask promised to fully open the dirty pores of my teenage skin, and banish blemishes forever. What it didn't say was "unless you are that unlucky teen who's acne is purely genetic and nothing short of massive drugs will curb the pustules on your face". Wish someone had told me that - or at least told other people so they wouldn't tell me to wash my face more! What they didn't know was I was washing with Lava three times a day and using Sea Breeze astringent in between. It's a wonder I even have skin left.
But my hair? It rocked!
