I was so frustrated with these hair stylers I gave them away. Whilst I thought the idea was great (seemed quick and simple to do, and you could pop the in do your makeup and then take them out) my hopes were dashed. They are so awful.
Firstly, I always burn my fingers - not badly - but they are difficult to handle as you have to fight the urge to pull your hand away constantly. Also, if you place them close to the scalp they are very uncomfortable against your skin. They are also heavy and I think the weight of the curlers has damaged my hair. That's if you can get them in in the first place. They are fiddly and require a lot of dexterity and practicing at holding your hair whilst you twist the curler here and there, this way and that as your fingers are singed. In addition, they don't have a very nice coating so they scrape against your hair causing more damage. after all the hassle my hair comes out kinky, not curly. Waste of money - do not buy!
WHAT ARE THEY
Flexible hair wands for creating curls. You heat them prior to use and use them directly from the attractive pouch.
HOW DO YOU USE THEM?
Plug in to heat after you have set the heat setting required. If you have very thick hair you should use the highest setting but for my fine blond hair I use the lowest setting and very occasionally the medium heat setting but not very often because then the heat seems to be too harsh for my hair.
ARE THEY EFFECTIVE?
They create good spiral curls but take a very long time to put in my hair so I do not use them very often because it is easier for my to use my curling tongs. When I bought them the advertising said they were suitable for tight curls too but this is not the case and they do not create a variation in curl size.
WHAT I THINK
These are effective in curling the hair but are badly designed. They are heavy and do not hold their bend unless you wind the curl very tight and then it is painful. The weight of them makes them slide out of my hair but I used them successfully on one of my clients recently and her very thick straightened Asian hair was far more suited to them and they held well.
I spray them lightly with hair spray for defined curls and that keeps the style for longer. The curls created by these wands do not hold for as long as when I use my curling tongs so I use them only in the daytime because I need more long lasting curls for evening wear. They only take about 15 minutes to heat up but attaching them to my hair takes so long that it is not always worth the trouble.
When I remove them they pull my hair painfully and sometimes pull so much that the curl is pulled out. Every time I have used these Flexi Stylers I have had to touch up my hair with my curling tongs to make sure all of the hair is curled evenly.
