I grew up in a house without curling irons, hair spray, or makeup – most of the time, and I still keep things very simple. Well-defined curls are pretty, though, so I couldn’t resist the chance to review the KISS Instawave automatic curler. My own hair is currently too short to curl beyond what it does on its own, but five-year-old Lily and Eight-year-old Emma were excited to give it a try!
The Instawave curler was very easy to use – even for people, like me, who don’t use hair appliances much. We stuck with big loose curls, because those take less time, but when we were patient enough to break hair into smaller sections and keep the sections small, we did see smaller curls. I feel like you would need to put something in the curls to keep them set all day long – ours tended to fall out pretty quickly. Hair has to be completely dry to use this curler, so you can’t rely on moisture to lock in the curls. I cut both Emma and Lily’s hair right before we got this to try out, and I feel like it would have been even prettier with longer hair to work with.
Do you curl your hair? Or straighten it? What are your favorite hairdo tricks?
