Ohemgee, this really works!
After stumbling across a video about this product while going down the rabbit hole of YouTube, I came here to read reviews. After so many glowing recommendations, I just had to try it.
For years I've watched TV shows and seen women with beautiful curl to the end of their hair. I tried to replicate it. Curling iron, curved flat iron, rag rolls, rollers...nothing worked for me. My technique was atrocious, I'm sure, and it doesn't help I have fine hair that doesn't hold a curl well and gets tangled in anything I try to use.
NO LONGER THE CASE! I just glanced at the insert that came with this product and, expecting a steep learning curve, excitedly tried it out. I was doing it like a pro in less than a minute. It really is idiot proof and I'm just the idiot to prove it! My hair held the curl for the rest of the day. I can't wait to use this more and more!
-LOVE this price! SO worth it
-Heats up in SECONDS
-Auto Shut off
-hair does NOT get tangled!
-really makes beautiful, soft curls
-spins in two directions for each side of your head
-I seriously have nothing...maybe that overall heat damages your hair if used too much? Bc you will want to use this All. the. Time.
I use reviews when I purchase from AlumiGogo so I understand the importance of an honest and insightful review. If this has helped you in any way, please help me and click 'YES' below! Thanks!

A Real Time Saver
It's pretty good. There's a trick to using it. Once you figure it out it does work pretty well. It probably works best on longer hair. Mine is shoulder length. Still, first time out of the box it only took me about 15 minutes to curl my hair vs. nearly an hour with a regular iron. I was unable to curl the short hair at the back of my head around the nape of my neck. That will still need a conventional iron. With practice, i'm sure my results will be better.

I. LOVE. THIS. IRON!
I am curling-challenged. I own a regular curling iron, and fail spectacularly using it. My curls with that iron are ugly, don't hold, it's just collecting dust. So I decided to give this a try for fab wedding hair.
Holy. Crap. It's amazing. No effort at all. I did a trial run the night before to see how difficult it was and they came out beautifully!! These pictures are the very first time using it. It is seriously so easy - and I never do anything to my hair other than blow dry it. I can barely even use a round brush to give my hair volume.
I used the second setting, which is a little hotter and gives a tighter curl. For the right side of my head I use the clockwise turn, and counter-clockwise for the other side. The back gets a little difficult to get the right angle, but even still it works so well. The hair doesn't even get caught - even when it did just a tiny bit, just press the button the opposite way and solved!
Closer to your scalp is tighter curls, which I did in the pics. Hold it parallel to the section of hair, press the button, hold, and when it beeps just pull down. BAM - CURLED! I used NO hair spray too and it held all night! Only product I used was Garnier heat protector spray right before I did each curl. Couple weeks ago I used it to do some looser waves and it even does that well.
Seriously, you will not be disappointed in this, and even for the style-challenged like me, it's amazing!

I'm in love. I couldn't curl my hair worth a bag ...
So I don't typically ever write reviews.. but since I've been hair-dumb for 31 years I had to review this product after trying. I'm in love. I couldn't curl my hair worth a bag of beans nonetheless have them stay put before this. After my old curling iron died I decided to purchase a new one - this one - after reading COUNTLESS reviews and watching endless YouTube reviews as well. I was skeptical I won't lie, some of the reviews are negative. But my first time using this and my hair was curled in 15 minutes. Loose flowy volumizing curls. I have thin, below the shoulder hair and I had no problem using this product. It heated up FAST, worked as promised, and I am completely satisfied. If your having doubts, don't!!

Best curling iron ever, esp for Asian hair
I love this curler beyond words. I am Asian with super straight, boring hair and I can never keep curls...seriously after curling my hair with a different curling iron AND using hair spray, my hair is basically straight again in 2 hours. This is the ONLY curling iron that I've used that actually works and is super easy to use. I actually tried using it without spraying my hair and the curls stayed in tact until the next day. They weren't as curly but super nice wavy, i love it. I've tried the conair thing that sucks in your hair and curls in...and it's a piece of junk. i literally threw it out.
This curling iron is amazing, and if you have hard to curl hair like me, you will LOVE IT.

YES! Finally! I had surgery a year or so ago that fused my neck which left me with very limited mobility in my neck and shoulders and found it impossible to style or curl my hair with any method I had used previously. After some research, I found this product and decided to give it a try. It WORKS! It's so easy, so awesome, I can do it with one hand tied behind my back and get my whole head done in under 5 minutes! My 13 year old daughter has hijacked it and uses it almost every day for her long hair (mine is shoulder length) and it turns out SO beautiful. It takes a few minutes to get the hang of it but after that you're golden. Very happy with this purchase and happy that I can have my hair styled again!

I should have stuck with my instincts. This thing is awful. I have shoulder length healthy hair. The little clippy-ish thing which you simply place your hair behind prior to it "twirling" when you push the button is short and therefore hair doesn't stay put. I tried it with my daughter's long thick hair and had the same results. The spinner does spin but not well. The hair is not held close enough to the heat as a regular flat/curling iron/wand and therefore the curls are not uniform nor do they last.

Perfect for the styling-challenged
As a woman who is less than talented at styling hair, I needed a curling iron that was going to do the work for me. My wedding is approaching and I intend to save $250 by doing my own hair, and I wouldn't be able to do that without this amazing curler! My hair is thick and in a medium-length bob (somewhere between chin-length or shoulder-length). All I need to do is spend about 15 minutes with this wand and I have clean, on-purpose-looking curls that I have yet to be able to achieve with any other curlers, formers or wands.

The Holy Grail of Styling Tools!!!!
I had low expectations for this, but it blew me away!! This thing is idiot proof. I had perfect curls after the first two sections of hair I tried. I have THICK long hair that I straighten because it's naturally curly. Usually after I flat iron it won't hold a curl. The curls held nicely for the first two days and loosened to a nice soft wave by the third. I've always used high end styling tools, and was expecting for it to burn or dry out my hair but it didn't! *Insert tears of joy here*. It's phenomenal!
- super easy to use
- not any heavier than a traditional flat iron
- not drying/ didn't burn hair
- curls fast
- has a built in timer and beeps when it's done!
- none. Seriously. I can't find a single thing wrong with this.

Great results for novices
I could never curl my hair properly until now, this is totally worth it. It gets very hot, so be careful, but this is good because my curls actually lasted. I have thick hair with a fine texture. It is naturally straight with a slight wave. I opened the box, was a complete novice, but was able to create a beautiful all over style in less than 10 minutes. My husband made a rare comment on how nice it looked. You can A. section your hair and curl. B. let the curler just grab your hair in large sections. Definitely use heat protection styling products first! Completely recommend; I put my curling iron and InStyler in the closet today.
