So, I tested this curling iron around the same time that I had tested out my Kiss InstaWave and so that might have skewed my perceptions of this curling iron.
First, I really like the price tag on this curling iron. At $20, even a poor chick like myself can easily afford to purchase this! I like the "Idea" of the clip in which you clip the end of your hair, however, I found it a little difficult to manage. It also took a pretty good amount of time to heat-up, but not terribly long. It also did a pretty good job at curling my hair especially when you consider the low price tag on it!
I also liked the spiral guide, it really was a neat and innovative approach to a curling iron that I've never before seen.
The NOT so Good..
Ok, there isn't a WHOLE lot that I didn't like about this. However, as I've mentioned before the clip I struggled with constantly. I just couldn't quite get the hang of it. I enjoyed the guide, however, it can be cumbersome for someone with longer hair. I also didn't feel as if it got quite as hot as other curling irons and it took a lot longer to heat up.
