I have fine thin wavy medium length hair. I'm not the savviest when it comes to complicated devices, and this really shouldn't be one of them. But, when I'm looking in the mirror, trying to figure out how to get my unwieldy hair into the opening of this curler correctly, I just get lost. Plus, some of my hair is just not the length that this device is best suited for.
I was able to get a few strands in the curler, and they came out with some cute spiral curls. I wish I had been able to get closer to my scalp, but that was impossible. When you change sides, you have to flip the curler upside down for the curls to go in the opposite direction. If your hair is a bit wild, and you are not great at doing precision tasks in the mirror that you have to do backward, you may the same problems with this curler as I did.
I think this is meant for someone with straight hair, that is at least 10 to 12 inches long. If you have thick hair, it is going to take a bit of time to do your entire head, if that is your goal. You can only take very small sections of hair at a time.
My best suggestion for the use of this curler would be for doing someone else's hair, a little girl's maybe. One where you can't get turned around, you have full control and are less likely for a tangling accident to occur. I will say that it does curl my hair. I just cannot seem to work with it and it is not meant for my type of hair, or brain. It's way too much trouble and aggravation for far too little, if any, payoff. 4 stars ✨ If you are going to be using this on someone else, or the right hair type, I think it would work ok.
