My Opinion
Like many of you out there, I have a lot of trouble curling my hair and a lot of the times it's not even decent enough to go out into public. I don't really know why, maybe lack of practice but it's always been a struggle. 

I have naturally straight/wavy hair, depending on the day and it's very thick and coarse. 

It took a little practice at first, but once you've got the hang of it, you were on your way to some "InstaWaves~" and it was easy as cake!

ABSOLUTELY NO TANGLES! I've heard a lot of complaints with other similar products with tangling of the hair, but the Kiss InstaWave will not be one of them. The little prongs on the outer part of the curler is suppose to help prevent your hair from tangling as it rotates, kind of like a hair brush. There are two settings as the product description states - High & Low. "High" is probably better for tighter curls while the "Low" setting is better for looser, beachy curls.

I actually thought the hair would hold tighter on the curler, but it was quite loose. However, I still got really nice curls, exactly how I wanted them to be.

Two things I recommend when using this product is:
1. Heat protecter spray/serum - The first time I used it, it was without a heat protector serum and it kind of smelt like my hair was burning (even my dad passing by joked around asking "why was I burning my hair").

2. A Glove - I know some curlers come with a glove so you don't burn yourself. I recommend it for beginners, especially when learning to use this. The curler gets REALLY hot and it does take some time getting used to.

How to use:
(according to KISS InstaWave)

Hold InstaWave vertically
Simply place section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod
Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair
Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves
Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out

**Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls
