Does What I Heard It Would Do!
Well, I should start off by saying, I have the type of hair that does NOT hold curls. My hair is smooth texture average thickness.
I watched a YouTube channel with a girl that does amazing hair-dos, she recommended this Amika True Tattoo Clip-Free Curler. She claimed people have even had two day curls with it.
Turned out to be true!
I didn't use any hair product at all, not even after curling with it.
On the THIRD day, I actually had to wash my curls/waves out!
I was impressed since I have such wimpy hair.
If I was to lose or break my Amika True Tattoo Clip-Free Curler for some reason, I would honestly spend the money to replace it.
Pros: Curls really did stay in all day (at least)!
Didn't have to use hairspray.
The tattoo design is awesome.
Cons: I burned the heck out of my fingers when using it the first time. I actually broke down and used the glove that is included to finish off curling my hair. It was fine after that.
The curls (on my hair type anyway) were more very significant, tight waves, rather than loopy ringlet type curls (some of you may consider that a pro! It looked very beachy and natural).
Hope this review helps!

Quick, Easy, Really Great <3
I have had this curling iron for about 2 months now. I had been searching for a long time for a clipless curling iron before hand, so I had done my research before making my purchase. To be honest, this is a really great curling iron. I am not very good with making new hairstyles, but you can do so much with a clipless iron, that you cannot do with a regular curling iron.
I have frizzy curly hair already, but sometimes, it is so hard to have defined curls, and this even helps me with that. You only need to hold it in your hair for a few seconds, and your hair comes out with beautiful, clean and very shine curls. I don't even use hairspray and they stay on for the whole day. I have a Sedu straightener and sometimes, my hair will not stay straight the whole day (that's how stubborn my hair is sometimes). And this curling iron actually eliminates frizz, defines very pretty and natural looking curls, with a very pretty shine.
I am actually looking into getting the Amika 3p because I would like more variety with smaller and larger curls, especially since they are tourmaline infused rods.
Over all very satisfied. If any downfall I have to complain about, it would have to be the awkward position of the on-off switch (wish it were a button).
one more thing
CAUTION this gets hot super duper quickly.. and when I say hot, i mean it. SUPER HOT.. First few times I was getting used to it, I got burned quite a few times. But after using it so much (close to 2-3 times a week), I find it easier to handle.
Really great product (:

Great Lasting Curls
This curling rod gives great curls, last overnight, not the best glove, makes hair slippery and hard to hold, this takes practice but better than burning your fingers : ) Would recommend this product

Good On Even Fine Straight Hair!
All my life I have been trying to curl my hair, and it always fell out within one hour. I use the medium curler from Amika now, and my curls stay in,(with the 2-1 hair spray), until the next time I wash my hair. I really love this and recommend it for women who have a difficult time keeping curls in their hair.
