I don’t write about hair or beauty much because I try to be really simple with how I style myself. I’ve written before that I use homemade shampoo and conditioner – which I’ve now been using for a full year! However, when it comes time to dress myself up I am often at a loss. Lately I’ve been feeling like I really need a fashion consultant, makeup consultant and hair consultant – all in one.
Anyways, several months ago I also joined a website called BrandBacker which allows bloggers to receive sample products in exchange for a review. To be honest, many of the opportunities have not been a good fit for me, so I passed on them. Then an opportunity came up to try the brand new KISS InstaWave Hair Curler. It looked and sounded so easy I had to try it. Maybe it would be a solution to my hairstyling woes?
A few caveats here, I received the product very quickly and my review was due very quickly so I have only tried out the hair curler once so far but I intend to use it much more. I think with experience, the curler will become easier for me to use. Traditional curlers require you to clamp your hair on the curling rod and then rotate the rod to create the curl.
The KISS InstaWave has a forward and reverse button on the rod. This button rotates the device, thus pulling and curling your hair for you. I was nervous the device would pull too hard but it did not! My hair is not as long as that of the model on the package of the product so I had a little trouble grasping my hair, especially in the back. I am growing my hair out and think the curling will become easier as I do that.
Here are a few tips on how the device works from KISS InstaWave:
- Automatically creates tangle-free curls. No need to be a pro!
- Easy-to-use from any angle with any hand. Features a curl dial with left and right directions.
- Device automatically shuts off after 90 minutes and features low/high switches, maximum temp of 420-degrees.
- Hold each curl for 5-10 seconds, longer for tighter curls, and less time for “beachy waves.”
- Switch curl direction from left to right to create a natural look.
- Pull the device straight down to release hair.
The KISS InstaWave is available for purchase now from Target, Ulta and Amazon. Retail price is $59.99.
