Our Experience with Kiss Instawave:
This Instawave curler is very impressive, and is very easy to use after some trial and errors was able to effectively work the curler correctly, my favorite feature is definitely the automatic curler, If you own a regular curling wand you will have to wrap your hair your self around the curler and end up getting burn (well if you are clumsy like me LOL) but with this Instawave curler no need to wrap our hair on the wand it does it all the work for you, and I haven't seen no hair tool like this before. YAY no more burns ;)
Types of Hair It Works Well With:
It works well for any hair types, my bestie and I tried it on our hair. Her Hair is straight & My hair is frizzy-curly and we had no problem with curling our hair with this curler. So I would think it would work well with any hair types. The problem we did have is that my bestie hair is very short, a littler shorter then shoulder length and the automatic curler wouldn't grab her short hair in the back to curl her hair. Which has us believe that this curler will not work for short hair. We did try the top of her hair and it worked great because her top pieces of her hair is longer then the bottom pieces of her hair. So its does work for shoulder length hair but anything shorter of course will not work, If you do have hair like hers my suggestion is to curl the top hair with the automatic curler then curl the bottom with a regular curling wand but the choice is yours.
Fear of Tangles:
I was so worried that this curler would tangle my hair when it wraps it around the barrel but no worries about tangles here, this curler is tangle free but you do need to wait until the curler is fully wrapped around barrel to go ahead and release your curl from barrel.
The relative ease of using the InstaWave has convinced me to keep this out on the counter when I just want some loose curls and extra body in my hair. I also don’t have to worry about burning myself which is a huge plus because it’s something I still worry about when using flat iron.
If I had a young daughter I would trust this tool in her hands because once you position your hair around the barrel, it’s pretty much all automated from there. Your hands aren’t in the picture anymore. I thought this gadget was a total success and I’ve had numerous compliments on my hair when curled with the InstaWave. I know everyone has their preference when it comes to hair tools, but for a hair noob like myself, this one’s a keeper!
I received this item courtesy of BrandBacker & KISS. I was skeptical at first because I haven't seen anything like this on the market, but was excited to try it nonetheless.
The KISS InstaWave is an easy-to-use styling tool that will help you achieve beautiful curls all by yourself. It's a fully automatic, tangle-free curler that lets you curl from any position using either hand. It has a large button on it that lets you switch directions of the curl from left to right (which is very helpful!), and it has two temperature settings (low and high) with a max temp of 420° F. The InstaWave even shuts off after 90 minutes - which is perfect because I always second guess myself if I turned off my styling tools or not.
This styling tool basically allows you to place a section of hair against the barrel, and it will do the rest! By pressing the large dial, it will spin the section of hair around the barrel and hold it in place while it curls. After 5-10 seconds, you can slide the tool down and release your curl!
This product did an amazing job on my hair (I wish I could take credit, but the InstaWave did all the work!). It was so easy to use, and left my hair shiny and soft! The curls were so lightweight and full of volume. I would honestly recommend this tool for those who don't have a lot of experience with using curlers.
The only thing I did NOT like about this product was that as soon as I plugged it in (not even turning it on), I could hear a very high pitched sound, almost like white noise. It got louder as I turned it on to Low & High. I messaged my contact at KISS, and they said they are aware of this issue (it's caused by the circuit to drive the motor), but they assured me that it would not be a safety issue.
It sounds and look gimmicky, but it really works! Yes, the process is very simple, although it does require practice. Simply place a section of hair on InstaWave curling rod and with the touch of a button, the Curl Dial instantly and automatically catches and curls hair in seconds. The first times I used this iron, my hair got tangled around the barrel because I pushed the wrong direction button on the Curl Dial, or I tried to curl too much hair at the same time - if this happen, don't panic! Press the opposite direction button and pull the iron downward and hair will come undone.
The InstaWave's ceramic barrel is infused with nano diamond particles which enhance its durability and conductivity, providing consistent heat for a flawless finish. Combine that with the ceramic barrel which generate negative ions that neutralize the positive ions that cause static electricity and frizz, and you are left with beautiful, shiny, bouncy curls! I only applied heat protectant in my hair prior to curling it and I was amazed at how shiny my curls were!
The InstaWave also comes with two heat settings with a low/high switch with maximum temperature of 420. The low setting is best suited for looser curls or waves, while the high setting is recommended for tighter curls or spirals. I am trying to use less heat as possible on my hair so I only used the low setting, which gaves me gorgeous, shiny loose waves.
KISS InstaWave is available for $59.99 at Target, ULTA, Amazon and Walmart.
