Today’s post is different from all the other posts that I have done here. Why? Well, as some of you may noticed, Reflection of Sanity has one too many *sarcasm* or lack thereof posts that are related to hair. The reason for this is I am completely clueless when it comes to my hair. I don’t do anything to it other than shampoo, conditioner and the occasional hair mask. I only have one hair dryer and no other styling tools because I never have luck with any of it. Once upon a time, I used to have a flat iron but other than a serious knack for burning myself, it had almost no other use to me. I did threaten to shove it up someone’s ass once but we won’t go there today. So you can imagine my surprise when I received an email from BrandBacker that I was accepted to review KISS InstaWave Automatic Curler*. Well, first came the happiness and then the nervousness sets in. I have no idea how I am going to review and use this hair curler and was honestly convinced that I am about to lose some hair while testing this product. If there is one person who can successfully fuck up the most idiot proof hair tool, that person would be me. Now let’s talk about the product. KISS Instawave* is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that promises to instantly create beautiful, long-lasting curls with just the touch of a button. I find it too good to be true and come on, we all have heard these so-called promises one too many times but hey ho, to the testland Shireen go!

Am I the only one who gets nervous when I see ‘AS Seen on TV‘ logo?!

Please read the given instructions, it helps, A LOT


Once the indicator light turns BLUE, the curler is ready to be used

Closer look at the curls

I am surprised how easy to use this curler is! My usually stubborn straight hair stood no chance against this and the curls remained till late evening and lasted till the next day with hair spray. On the tangle-free part, it is also proven to be true. I don’t think it is possible for anyone to tangle their hair with this curler, it’s just not possible. I can describe this curler with only one word; BRILLIANT. Let’s talk about the product features. This is honestly idiot-proof and is designed for easy usage from any angle and with any hand. It also features a Curl Dial with left/right curl directions, comes with 2 heat settings (a low/high switch) at the maximum temperature of 420. I also don’t ever have to worry about burning the house down because this baby automatically shuts off after 90 minutes. The only down side that I can actually think of is the curler is more suitable for anyone who has medium length hair, meaning your hair has to be at least over shoulder length.

Do watch the video below on how to use the curler:

1. Hold InstaWave vertically. 2. Simply place section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod. 3. Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair. 4. Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for be achy waves. 5. Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out. **Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls
