Good, But Frizzy Results
I like the intention of this curling iron but I wasn't so happy about the final results which came out frizzy. Frizz means dry and malnourished hair, so I don't like the idea of this iron damaging my hair.

I think I'll stick to my Karmin G3 Salon Pro Clipless curling iron which has never let me down and always gives me smooth, silky and long lasting curls. :)

Love It!
I've owned this iron for over 6 years and I love it. Heats up evenly, very easy to use, creates beautiful waves that last till you're next shampoo. I always get many compliments on my hair when I use this iron. It gives you that nice summer beach mermaid hair. Would buy again but it does not seem like I will any time soon since iron still works perfectly

Im so bad at styling my own hair, but I needed a change, so I bought this waver and was surprised at how easy it was to use. I regret not buying it sooner bc I LOVE the results! My hair is super frizzy, so I was afraid it may bring out the frizz more, but it actually tamed my hair and made it healthier looking. I found it helpful to put silk drops or Morocan oil in the curls after it was styled (and scrunch). It tames the frizz and leaves the curls beautiful and shiny.

This Is Fun
I'm really liking this waver. It's fun for a big puffy style or a more chill beach wave look.

You can use it like a krimper, by just pressing the hair (like you would with a krimper or flat iron) and this will give you a really BIG super wavy hairstyle. Note:This creates very deep waves, so of course the less time you leave your hair in the iron, the lighter the effect, and more natural the look. If you hold it for maybe 7-8 seconds it no longer looks "natural", so if that's what you're going for you may want to use it the second way.

By weaving your hair between the two rods, then clamping (like the Hot Tools Blue Ice Titanium Waver You Tube video, that we've all seen because it's awesome) you get the more natural wavy look. If you hold the waver vertically, you get more of a spiral effect. Holding the waver horizontally, will give you more of a rolling wave look. Note: The first few times, wear a glove. I know, I know you know what you're doing, but save yourself the burns on your fingertips the first couple of rounds until you get the hang of the rhythm.

If your hair is frizzy, this will make it more frizzy. Fact of life. Make sure you use a good serum beforehand to control this. Also, this waver gets HOT. Very HOT. Be very careful to use the proper setting for your hair type. There's a quick guide to the levels in the waver's instructions. Going too hot (too high a level) for your hair type, will scorch it and make it brittle as all get out!

Keeping these things in mind, it's a very fun tool that's nice for a laid back look at home or at the beach! I really like it.

I was so disappointed in this product! It worked ok for about a month, then it started to smoke and finally one day it stopped working (all within 2 months!!). I don't recommend this, at all. I took proper care of it and it broke on its own. Be smart and read the reviews. I know I will next time.

Love It !
Its kinda hard to use the first few times......but after you get the hang of it your hair turns out beutiful. Just make sure to use heat protectant, and hair spray or you might get frizzy. But I would recomend it to anyone who asks.

Also folica needs to change their descriction of this flat iron, I think they have A newer model out now because when I received mine It had 4 diffrent heat setting (low,med high, ex high) not just low & high as said in the description. Which I is a good thing.

So Amazing.... Lol
This stuff is great, it makes my fine, thin and long hair become more volume with these loose and soft curls ^o^ I use it with Chi 44 iron guard and L'oreal Crystal gloss. The result is so amazing. When I go out, many people ask me about my hair. I feel very satisfied with this tool ^_^ P/s: I've tried to upload my photos but it's impossible. Maybe my files aren't file at least 150x150 pixels and less than 500x500 pixels ;-(
