Quick and Easy All-day Curls

Don't forget to enter the giveaways for a pair of Team Tights (here) & a $25 gift card to The Mint (here)
My hair does not like to hold a curl.  It is fine, silky and pin straight, so it takes a perfect storm of tools and products to get all-day curls.  When I heard about the KISS InstaWave - a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls - I thought the idea was neat, but questioned whether it would work on my hard-to-curl hair.  With nothing to lose, I gave it a shot.  
The InstaWave features a curl dial with left/right curl directions that automatically catches and curls the hair. It did take me a few minutes of playing around to figure it out, but once I had it down, it was super easy.

The InstaWave has two heat settings with a low/high switch (max temp of 420) and automatically shuts off after 90 minutes.  I'm embarrassed to admit how many times I've left my other curling iron on ( so this is a really nice (and necessary!) feature.

 How to use the InstaWave:
  • Place section of hair on the 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.  Knowing that my hair is hard to curl, I held for ~10 seconds
  • Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out
*Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls
 Final step:  Spray with your favorite hairspray and enjoy your beautiful curls.  I'm happy to report that these curls stayed in tact all day long!  Interested in trying it out for yourself?  The InstaWave can be purchased at Target (currently on sale), Ulta or Amazon and would make a great gift!

I was given the KISS InstaWave by Brand Backer to try in exchange for a fair and honest review.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
