I received the KISS InstaWave Automatic Curler to facilitate this review. All opinions are mine and based on my experiences.
Once upon a time, I was a Cosmetologist. Ah yes, it’s been a while, but I still love all things hair. With two little boys, I don’t often have the opportunity to “talk” hair! So I packed up the KISS InstaWave Automatic Curler and headed to my sister’s house! There I had an audience, that included, my adorable nieces. I was also able to try the curler on myself and my sister.
So here is what I liked. The curl. It truly gives a “beachy” wave look. I liked, the ability to alter the curl direction with the touch of a button. It heated fast and has a nice weight and quality to the device.
The curler looks intimidating, but after just a few minutes, I had the routine down and it achieved nice results.
There is a sound with the rotation of the barrel, but that is to be expected; It requires a motor to rotate the barrel. It wasn’t bothersome to me, for the amount of time, I used it.
It is worthy to note; the packaging, it was easy to open. That was a first. Curling Irons are always terribly difficult to remove from packaging. They also usually smell bad the first time, you heat them. This did not occur.
There were a few things, I missed, and experience difficulty with.
My hair is very layered and textured. I had a terrible time trying to get the barrel to rotate at the top and crown- the most layered areas. The longer, more even length, curled much easier. The use a thermal protectant and or styling spray will help with curl formation and hair pliability.
There is no “stand”, you know, something keep the barrel slightly angled upwards when you put it down? This made me nervous, as I know most people might use this in the bathroom sink area or on a bedroom vanity. It is built, so the barrel should not touch the surface, but I still would have liked to see that addition.
My sister has difficult to curl hair and the most we achieved with her hair was wavy volume, but in fairness she always has difficulty with curlers.
Bottom line: It is a good entry for KISS Products, into the “beauty tool” market.
