I had always wanted to try the HerStyler curling iron, but being that my budget has been tight for a few months I restrained myself from spending the dough on it. Then one day while I was watching MTV at o'dark thirty in the morning and a commercial from Conair came on and it featured this.
Here is what the Conair site says:
-Instant style with no clamp – simply wrap
-Fast and easy, with no kinks
-Tourmaline Ceramic™ technology – more protection, reduces frizz, helps eliminate static, and no damaging hot spots
-Powerful ceramic heater
-30-second instant heat*
-Ultra-high heat levels – 400°F/204°C
-LED indicator lights
-Professional length line cord
-Limited five-year warranty
What I like about this curler is that it does have the temperature gauge. Unlike a dial there is a button you push to select your desired heat setting. It starts at 310 degrees and goes in intervals of 310, 330, 360, 400. Though the setting is limited I prefer this rather than the dials that go from 1-25. There is also a blinking red light to tell you that it's on. Also, this curler comes with a swivel cord so you don't have to worry about getting tangled. Unlike the Herstyler, this does not come with gloves so when wrapping your hair around this, you must take caution or you will burn yourself.
I am in love with this curler! It looks like I have a perm when I use this. It did take some getting used to and I got frustrated at wrapping my hair around the curler but after a few goes I got the hang of it. The curls aren't uniform but I like the feel of that. What I love most is that my curls stay. With a regular curling iron my hair never held the curl, but if I curl my hair with the You Curl, my curls last all day. Here are some pics I took. Let me know if you guys want a tutorial on this.
-Makes hair shiny because of cermanics
-Tight curls that stay
-No gloves, higher chance of burning fingers
-Can take some getting used to
