- Innovative Design
There are innovative designs possible with the device which let users curl from any position, using either hand.
- Beep Alert
There is a beeping sound guide meant to help users style their hair based on the selection of their choosing.
It has a spinner which makes it easy for users to switch between left curl directions or right curl directions.
The ceramic ionic technology is much better for hair, not harming it but protecting it so that it is shiny and healthy.
- Two Settings
The device comes with two heat settings, so that users can decide upon a lower or higher setting, with a maximum of 420°f for safety. What’s more, there is an automatic shutoff feature after ninety minutes of use, to ensure no accidental fires or other destruction.
Ceramic ionic barrel enhances the durability of the device while ensuring there are ionic effects necessary to keep hair shinier and healthier, something which doesn’t burn the hair like other non-ceramic devices.
The ceramic barrel uses patented curling technology to catch and wrap the hair around the barrel in an automatic fashion. This barrel is just held vertically and the directional switch hit while it works its way around the hair.
- Power Light Indicator
This device heats to completion within 60 seconds and there is a power indicator light that shows users when it is ready to be used. The light turns to blue as soon as it is ready, so there is no mistaking it.
- Directional Switch
The left to right directional switch means that the user can turn the switch to the left or right. This alleviates the all too common issue of trying to turn it in your hand without burning yourself. It makes it easy for users to have curls that wrap toward the face or curls that wrap away from the face with a simple press of a button and instant rotation.
- Power Control Switch
The power control switch lets users choose the temperature setting of their choice, be it high or low. This is ideal for various hair types, various textures, and different styling effects. In some cases, a lower temperature is preferred, and in others, a hot temperature up to 420˚f is provided.
- Swivel Cord
The cord attached to the device rotates 360 degrees so users can move around and move their arms around freely when they are trying to style their hair.
The device comes with a 2 year limited warranty so any issues that might arise with the device can be rectified for a long time after purchase.
Does It Really Work?
Yes it really works to the same standard that any store bought curling iron works.
Mid length hair can be converted into spiral curls that are tight and salon quality with a high temperature setting. For this, alternating the direction of the curls will make a natural curly appearance. Medium to long hair can be converted into voluminous and soft waves with a high temperature setting. If you have Mid to Long hair length it is recommended that you hold the device vertically at an angle, and section your hair into areas one or two inches. Then place the barrel behind these sections and press the button to start the spinner rotating. The spinner will catch your hair automatically and begin curling.
You can press the directional switch until all of your hair is wrapped around the barrel and hold it in place until the beep goes off. Beeping indicates the curl is complete. Guiding the device straight down will release the curl. Doing this should be repeated all the way around the head until everything is curled. When you are done, running your fingers through will make the wavy look appear soft and bouncy.
Short hair can be converted into bouncing curls with volume and body on a low heat setting. If you have short hair you should hold the device vertically at a slight angle and put the spinner quite close to the root. Short hair does not need to be sectioned. Hold down the directional switch until the spinner automatically catches the hair.
Once your hair is completely wrapped, you should hold the spinner in place until a beep is heard. Beeping, once again, means the hair is done and the curl is ready. Guiding the device straight down will release the curl. This should be repeated all the way around the head until everything is curled.
How it's Different from Competitors
There are many other curlers out there, and straighteners which double as curlers. So far this is one of the only ones with all of the aforementioned features, and all of the safety benefits. The price is roughly the same compared to similar products but there is additional ease of use associated with the swiveling cord and left to right switches. Features like these avoid the mess of tangled cords or accidental burns.
