The product is really nice. Does perfectly what it is supposed to do. Very easy to use and a very convenient design has been given. Downside is, the curler is almost 2.5"(D) thick, which gives nice big waves to the hair that really look nice on long hair, but for mediumlength or shoulder length hair, all your hair will go in one wave..so technically you wouldn't get any wave in your hair..merely the tip turning and setting is all you'd be able to do. It would have been good if Philips could have come up with an option of multiple changeable heads with varying diametes. Even for a higher price, that would have completed the range for easy and nice hair styling.
The product is really good. mine is a very frizzy hair. And this one really makes it smooth and straight. But it takes some 15 minutes for a mediumlength hair. And it is not actually a perfect curler. I got only loose curls and it dint last long. And that too if your hair is already very silky, you'll not get any curls at all. I tried it with my niece who has a very silky hair. It dint have any effect.So for those who expect to get a perfect curl will be disappointed with this. But still others who really has a very frizzy can afford to buy it as it makes your hair smooth and straight with slight curls.
First it arrived within days,but the packaging was in a bad way,all crushed & torn !just as well it was for my personal use & not a present !the roller is quite large,although I have mediumlength hair , I think this would be suited for those with long hair ,not short !
