Let me start this review by saying, I have no idea what the fuck I am talking about when it comes to curling your hair. So why I am even bothering to write a review about a hair curler is a good question to ask. Why in the world are you reading this? Also a good question. But I have been asked and asked, and thought I would write up my thoughts and reviews on this curler.
But to start off, my hair naturally:
So just to be clear, that is my NATURAL hair. No curler required. But I do often wonder what it would be like to be able to brush out my curls and have wavy or less curly hair. And if I brush out my NATURAL curls, well.... lets just say there is not a door wide enough to get my head through it if I try.
As you know if you read my blog years ago when the BaBylissPRO™ MiraCurl came out, I have been obsessed with trying it since it came out. But to spend $200 (American!!) on a machine to curl my hair seemed slightly insane. Insert this one from AliExpress. For $34 Canadian including shipping, I thought why not!
The one blaring flaw, and it is ANNOYING is that there are no labels on the buttons. They seem to have forgotten that part!
Aside from that, let me once more reiterate that I have no idea what I am doing or how to do it. A brief stint of crimping my hair in the 80s (for a good year or two I LIVED to have my hair crimped) I have never used heating tools on my hair other than a straightener!
I do think that once you get the hang of it, and "get it", the curler is easy to use.
And brushed out.
I actually can brush out my hair!
Overall, I am happy with it. For the amount I will use it (lets be honest, if I use it once every 3 months I will be impressed) I would not in a million years spend HUNDREDS on it. But for the $30 I paid, I am 100% sold!
If you want the link, feel free to email me (polishjinx at gmail dot com) but I don't want to post it blatantly and get the listing shut down!
