Delicious Curls - KISS InstaWave Review

Hey guys! Today, instead of a food-related post today, I wanted to share with you all a new hair curler I’ve been using! It’s called the KISS InstaWave, and it’s super fun and easy to use.

At first I was kind of skeptical about the InstaWave because I’ve always been the kind of person who was too lazy to curl her hair, even when I was using the relatively easier straightening-iron-method. However, the KISS InstaWave sported a really good rating on Amazon (13 out of 14 raters gave it a 5 star rating), so I was like okay! Let’s try this out~

About the product: 
According to the website, the KISS InstaWave is a "fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease.” There are:
  • Two temperature settings (high and low),
  • A right/left directional switch, and
  • A 1” ceramic ionic barrel with prongs at the end that catch and hold your hair around the barrel
Another feature that I thought was really cool about the InstaWave is that it automatically shuts off after 90 minutes. That way, if I’m ever in a rush, I’ll never have to worry about whether I forgot to turn out my curler, which being the forgetful person I am, I’m very prone to doing.

What I liked about the product:
In my opinion, the InstaWave is very innovative, especially with the automatic curling action and the left/right directional switch.

After some getting used to, the InstaWave makes curling hardly any work at all! All of the rotating is controlled by the two buttons, which allows me to use either hand when curling. Basically the only work I had to do was hold the curler close to my head and it does all the work!

What I thought could be improved:
The first thing is that the InstaWave does take some time to get used to. The first time I used it, I found it really confusing which direction I was supposed to place my hair in relation to the barrel and when I was used to use the left verses right directional switches.

Another thing is that there is some minor buzzing noise that comes from the iron. The company did say that the noise was normal and nothing to worry about. However, you do have to hold it next to your head for the entirely of the curling process, so if that does irritate you... that's something else to consider when buying the product.

Overall, I really liked the KISS InstaWave. I thought it was really convenient and easy to use (after the initial learning-process). Because I didn't have to do any physical labor, the InstaWave makes curling my hair super easy and fast. I don’t have to know what’s going on behind my head, and I can just let the curler do all of the work!

Rating: 4.5/5

How to use:
  1. Hold the InstaWave vertically and place a small section of hair on the curling rod between the barrel and the prongs.
  2. Press either the left or right directional switch. The InstaWave will automatically catch and wrap the hair around the barrel.
    • If you want to curl your hair away form your face, then start your hair in front of the barrel and push the arrow that points away from your face.
    • If you want to curl your hair towards your face, then start your hair behind the barrel and push the arrow that points toward your face.
  3. Hold the hair against the barrel for 5-10 seconds depending on how tight you want your curls to be.
  4. Pull the Instawave down for beautiful curls!
