Liked the Air Styler. I have soft but frizzy curls so a 10 minute brush on damp hair made my hairs straighter (Please Note - Am not talking about PokerStraight which only Flat irons can give you!). Pretty much liked it as it makes my hair less frizzy and more straighter so I can keep them open without looking messy.
Girls with VERY curly hair should avoid it as the difference is not worth the price.
It definitely do not fry your hair like straighteners and do not feel as heavy as blow dryers. It is combination of two and this is what makes it perfect for every "other" day use. I have frizzy dry wavy hair then too I love it. Put it on second heat setting, and you'll get the straight hair not pokerstraight silky shiny as we see on advertisements but manageable hair for sure. If you're worried about heat that'll burn your hair. Well , keep this device moving and do not keep it near scalp. I use it with heat protect-ant sometimes and 5 inch away from the scalp. Because my waves start forming on lower ends and I do not want heat to mess with hair growth.
I actually found this quite good. I kept expectations low while buying this product (and that's why I didn't buy the Kerashine. As per online reviews, both seemed to be glorified hair dryers so I might as well buy the less expensive one, right?). Well, it was a pleasant surprise. It took the frizz of my very wooly very curly hair and made it more manageable. That's all I wanted, and that's what I got so no complaints. If you want pokerstraight hair, don't even bother. 3.5 for this one.
Its the best product Philips introduced.. too easy to use.. less hair breakage than usual hair straightener. Dont expect pokerstraight hair.. it just gives a bouncy natural look... For best results, use the brush inside out. Dont fget to apply hair serum before n after using it.
I shouldn't actually be rating it low because I was aware of it's limitations. You will never end up with straight hair let alone pokerstraight hair. That's not what the product claims anyhow so can't really complain.Philips brand has loyalists and lives up to the quality. The use of word " styler' in the product description is incorrect. You can't style anything with this product.
usage: Air dry your hair to about 80% and then use this styler. You will have well groomed blow dried hair. I have fine brown shoulder length hair (medium volume) and its impossible to manage the bangs with this styler. No matter how much of hair serum I load up on , the frizz this styler leaves is annoying and I end up with limp hair. Also, after using it for about 4 months now, twice a week, my hair is drier and is showing signs of damage. I had better hair quality before this styler with Braun hair dryer. Most importantly, this styler is useless on longer,thicker hair (tried it on mom, sis and friends with different kinds of hair).. Won't recommend...
