I am in love with this gadget! I’ve always used curling irons, but this is so much better. For me, I don’t have to be as mindful of how I’m wrapping my hair in the curling iron to avoid that antiquated style of overly curled hair. This thing makes lovely soft curls that fall just right on your head with less curl at the root and more at the middle and bottom of hair strands.I love that the heated part is completely inside the barrel, so no worries about burning my fingers. It’s very quick to heat up - under a minute. You can easily adjust the settings for heat or how long you want the hair in the barrel before it beeps. Even if the unit hasn’t beeped and you want to release your hair sooner, you just pull it out.It won’t let your hair get stuck inside. If you try to put too much inside or the hair is too tangled to start, the iron beeps and stops pulling the hair inside. You can’t continue until you reset the iron. I have pretty thick hair and still have been able to pull in reasonable sections of hair.I’m able to curl my entire head of thick hair in about 10 minutes.Love the easy buttons to change the direction the curl will go. It does take just a bit of getting used to with respect to how to most effectively hold the wand and how to place your hair inside to achieve the best result.I’m right handed and usually curl my whole head with my right hand. With this, I found it easier to use my left hand to hold the wand when working on MY right side of head, so basically hold the wand with the hand opposite of the side you’re curling. Use your free have to pull the section of hair into the slot on the front (which should face the outside away from your head).But even the first use, my hair came out really great. These pics are from the 2nd time when I hadn’t really finished styling it. After the curls loosen up and your hair products settle in a bit, your hair will look even better and have that languid, sexy curl. Definitely worth the money! I’m so glad I bought it!
WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE??! I curled my entire head in less than 10 minutes. So easy to use!
I was skeptical at first about this because I’ve tried something like it and it pulled my hair. I tried it today and I like the way it works my hair is really long and it did take me an hour to curl my whole head. It normally takes me about 45 mind anyway so it’s not a big deal. The best part is my hair is hard to curl and doesn’t stay curled. My hair stayed curled all day and my curls came out cute. You have to do small pieces at a time but the curler is very easy to use. I’m really happy with the product.
I have very thick wavy (who am I kidding, more like frizzy) hair. I used to straighten it which just damaged my hair more and left me feeling like I had no style. I started curling it which works but takes forever and never lasts all day. Maybe a couple hours at most with a regular curling iron. I bought this because of the good reviews and I am in LOVE! it’s so easy, the pictures are from my first time using it today. The instructions are somewhat vague but if you look online at the video for it that helps. Once I watched the video I had it down easy. It also fits in my hair dryer holder perfectly!These curls were done with it set on 400 with the timer at 17 sec. I used a higher temp setting because my hair is so thick and course. I also bought the Chi hair spray and used it as well. This is halfway through the day and my curls are still hanging on! The only negative is that I didn’t know about it and buy it sooner! I am not very hair tool savvy so if I can do it anyone can haha! I love that you can’t burn yourself which I always did with my old iron. It’s not too heavy so my arm didn’t get tired and the curls come out perfect. I love that you can push a button to have the curls go toward the back or toward the front. Setting it is easy. Low maintainance. I can’t say enough good things!
