My Embarrassing Fail of a Review with Insta Wave.
I have always had a hard time knowing what to do with my hair! I don't know if it is the half straight/half curly texture of it, or the fact I never really had any good training! Not that my mom didn't train me to wash my hair often and keep it brushed, but that was about the extent of it! Mom since before I was born always wore her hair in a braid with a bandanna on top, so maybe she just didn't know what to do with her hair either. I was super excited to be given The InstaWave Automatic curler By Kiss to try out and write an honest review for my readers! This is where I have come into some trouble. You see I am a nice person...Like maybe too nice sometimes! I do not like to be a Negative Nancy, and I've always followed the golden rule, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!" The problem here is, I have a company wanting me to hold up my end of the deal by writing a review about their product. My review is horribly past due. In my heart of hearts I really want to say something nice, because I know behind every product there is a real person hoping it's going to be received in a positive light and will be the next best invention since sliced bread! So here it goes...
I received the InstaWave Automatic Curler From Kiss Hair Appliances and Brand Backer in exchange for an honest review. I will never be dishonest with you folks so I will tell you how it is. I opened the box and was immediately excited and intrigued by it's design! Right on the front of the box it reads, "Curls Made Instantly With the Touch of a Button" there are some pictures of a cute little blond curling her hair with a nice grin! I turned the box over and in BIG pink letters it states, "NO NEED TO BE A PRO" I was excited! It says, Simply place a section of hair on InstaWave and leave the rest to us. With a touch of the button, the curl Dial instantly and automatically catches and curls hair, transforming your straight locks into tangle-free, gorgeous curls in seconds. Good for use on all hair lengths and types. Doesn't That sound awesome!! I took a shower and dried my hair, because I could not wait another second to try this miracle curler out! Finally I was going to have the answer to all my hair styling needs! I removed the InsatWave curler from the box. It was well packaged and made of nice quality! I plugged it in, it has two temperature settings Low/High. I set it to high and it instantly started warming up!
The Instawave is made up of Diamond-Ceramic Technology for enhanced durability while maintaining ionic effects for healthy shiny results! It's Ceramic Ionic technology reduces frizz and damage. It's 420 degree max professional grade temperature locks in curls. It has an auto shut off after 90 minutes and it has a Specially designed Curl dial to prevent hair from tangling. They really thought of everything with this curler!
I gave the curler a couple minutes to warm up and I went right to work! I separated a small portion of my hair and attempted to curl it. This is where it gets embarrassing! I tried everything in my power to get my hair automatically caught in the Curl Dial to no avail! I pushed the button forward and backwards and could NOT get my hair to wrap around the wand! I walked away and did the next best thing, went to my computer and pulled up a you tube video showing someone else use it with ease. After watching the video and the girl raving about how wonderful and completely effortless it was, I was ready to give it another shot! I tried again and could seriously not get my hair to wrap around it! I thought well clearly I am just not getting a good angle so I called my daughter in who has extremely straight hair to see if I could do it better on someone else. Sadly I can not figure this thing out! I am not a pro, maybe you can call me a 40 year old beginner, but unfortunately I can not recommend this product due to the fact I didn't really see it instantly and automatically curl any hair!?.
So To InstaWave Automatic Curler from Kiss, I'm sorry, I feel like it's not you, it's me! Thank you for putting much thought into your product! I wish I could have loved it more!
Do any of you have the InstaWave curler by Kiss? Is it easy for you to use? Any tips? I would love to hear your feed back!
