It may appear cumbersome at first look but it's better than that. Much more easy to handle and style but as stated in some reviews it leaves hair frizzier. Although loved it as it is easier to use on weekly basis.
It gives very big curls, sort of beachy waves only. Also my hair is straight so the curler did not work out for them at all. Also my hair is as it is shiny so couldn't make out the kerashine effect. I returned it. I guess for slightly coarse or wavy hair, this would work muchbetter.
I just hate this product. It takes awful lot of time and doesn't give the results it claims. One has to take someone's help to use it properly.I have only used it once or twice in the 1 year I have had it for. My flatmate has a Panasonic (blowdry with comb) one which works muchbetter to smooth out hair.
