Comments about Drybar The 3-day Bender Digital Curling Iron:

I first purchased the 1.5" barrel, and had NO LUCK at all getting it to curl my hair and keep the curl!
Then I purchased the 1" and it took a little bit of trial and error and now I think I have it working perfectly! My curls stay for several days and doesn't take very long to get curled. I do have short, shoulder length hair and I DO have snags here and there. I feel like I have a little more perfecting of the iron and that will also be taken care of.
Love how fast it heats and the cradle for the wand is great when I'm sectioning off hair.

    Comments about Drybar The 3-day Bender Digital Curling Iron:

    Hair slips right out. I just bought it yesterday and tried it for the first time today. Didn't really experience as much snagging as other reviewers have said they have. I will give it a few more tries but if it continues not producing as tight of curls or loose waves without a weird kink at the end, I will return it.
    It's also very pricey to be not as effective as one would hope.

      Comments about Drybar The 3-day Bender Digital Curling Iron:

      Awful! When you rotate ithe curler, your hair gets snagged at the base every single time and needs to be ripped out before it gets fried. Hair just slips out. Whoever designed a 400 degree iron with no kickstand should be fired immediately. What if I have to stop halfway through for a minute? Do I call my hubby to come hold it for me??? Of note, I have bra strap length straighter hair and no matter what I did, my hair got snagged in the turning base.

      Comments about Drybar The 3-day Bender Digital Curling Iron:

      Let me begin by saying how much I love DryBar (including my buttercup blow dryer.) I was so excited to run out and buy this when Ulta sent a 20% off coupon. I would not consider myself a novice when it comes to curling hair, but I still could not make the three day bender work for me. I have thick hair that goes just past my shoulders. I think my hair is too thick and too long for this product to work. By the time I twist my hair around the barrel (even when I work in small, manageable sections as recommended) it gets twisted up in the barrel and snags. Do not buy this if you have hair past your shoulders! If you watch the dry bar tutorials they only demonstrate it on short hair or short layers. When I can create a good curl, I wouldn't even call it a curl. It's more of a wave. Which is nice on some people but not the effect I am going for. I am much more satisfied with the look I can achieve from my hot tools wand that I already own. I hate to say this because I really wanted to love this product, but I will be returning it to Ulta. I still recommend everything else Dry Bar! And I would say try this out if you are looking for a tool for very short hair. Also check out the dry bar tutorials.

            My hair is long, thick and color-treated. I was very excited when I brought this home, but it didn't work for me at all.The clamp did not maintain enough grip on my hair and the ends of my hair kept getting stuck at the bottom of the clamp as I twirled the barrel. I watched the video online to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong. I wasn't. The only positive is that it heated up quickly. I'll be taking this back today.

              Comments about Drybar The 3-day Bender Digital Curling Iron:

              Where to start? It's a pretty iron, that matches my beautiful Drybar blowdryer. But that's about the only positive thing I have to say about this product. The concept is cool- a rotating iron, but when you rotate it your hair gets snagged at the base and needs to be cut or ripped out. Also, the clamp doesn't hold your hair- it just slips out if it's not snagged at the base. Not having its own kickstand is a horrible idea because with the long tangled cord it comes with it flops around everywhere and I ended up burning my dresser. I tried to re-gift it to my MIL, and she hated it as well so it will be returned promptly. Bummer! I really wanted this to be a great product.

                  This is so hard to use and when you get it to curl it literally disapears in like 30 minutes. I thouht it was foing to work great because drybar is such a good brang but they really failed with this product.

                      I have thick, curly, coarse hair, thought this would work great. I had to blow dry my hair then took forever to curl my hair. the hair kept falling out of the iron so had to keep re-doing and the clamp doesn't hold well, the barrel turns which is great but snags the hair at the base, I almost dropped it on my shoulder a couple of times. It may be ok for others, just wasn't impressed for the price.
