Advantages: Innovative product creates gorgeous curls and volume, an amazing hairdryer!
Disadvantages: Takes some practice - you may end up looking like a cavegirl at first...
I found this product after my trusty old 'normal' hairdryer died on me and I was left with wet hair (not good in winter!). I was totally amazed that I only paid £28 for this amazing product. I was unsure of how it would work, so I admit I was a bit of a geek and watched some instructional videos on youtube (yes they even teach you how to do your hair on there) and decided to give it a try.
I was so excited when it arrived that I jumped in the bath straight away and got straight to creating my dream hairdo.... now unfortunately on first attempt at using the spincurl I seperated my shoulder length hair into too many sections and found the 'dreadlocks' it creates hard to seperate (possibily as I used curl product on my hair as advised by the youtube gurus) basically I ended up looking like a cavegirl... only useful for fancy dress...
After a few attempts (taking into account that I am usually rubbish at hair) I discovered that the way forward is to not use any product on my hair (but Tony and Guy shampoo and conditioner for curls is good) and to work with larger sections.
Make sure your roots are relatively dry first, and the rest of your hair is not sopping wet using the funnel attachement. Then I dry my side fringe with a round brush as it doesn't look right curly as it is too short. I then seperate my hair into two parts (top and bottom) at around eye level. I use the spin curl attachment to create 3 'dreadlocks' in each of the bottom and top sections (6 alltogether) making sure each one is completely dry.
Instead of trying to seperate the curls with my fingers, I find the best way to do it is to use the funnel attachment and 'blow' the curls apart and tousle with your fingers so they seperate.
I now find it really easy to do this, and finally have the gorgeous curls I have always wanted (and previously forced my mother to spend ages doing for me with a curling iron!). I also have far more volume in my hair, it looks amazing and I don't even have to brush it as much (bonus!). The hairdryer is excellent on it's own, but the spincurl attachment is truely an innovation - I know I'll be keeping mine a secret (I wouldn't want everyone to have hair as good as mine now would I!?).
Summary: practice makes perfect, and perfect curls you shall have!
