          This sucks. I have medium length hair and found it very difficult to use. My hair looked ridiculous and I'm amazed I didn't burn myself in the process. I would like to return this but I can't seem to find my receipt. :( I will be going back to conventional curling irons.

          Comments about Conair You Curl Styling Wand:

          I am not one of those people who is naturally good at hair. To get waves or curls with a curling iron I have to try really hard and curl and re-curl but this wand was so easy! Just wrap your hair around it and go! And it gets so hot that just a few seconds and you'll get a gorgeous wave. I love it!

              Comments about Conair You Curl Styling Wand:

              My hair is very fine and it usually takes a lot for it to hold a curl. I was skeptical that a Conair product would work for me, since the only other brand I've had luck with over the years is a standard Hot Tools curling iron. But I was looking for something different and wanted to do waves.... so this device is great to change up your style and works well.

              BUT! Just be careful. I blame myself - but I dropped the iron when it was at its highest setting on the top of my hand. And even though it only made contact for just a split second - I have a VERY bad burn on my hand. It comes with a glove to protect your fingers but until you get the hang of working with a device like this, if you drop the iron it will burn you badly.

                Comments about Conair You Curl Styling Wand:

                ABOUT MY HAIR:
                Fine, limp, hardly holds body, difficult to manage, color treated, dry, and about 2 inches below my shoulders so it's med length hair.

                INITIAL THOUGHTS:
                I wanted to achieve waves, not curls but I knew when buying this that it was going to give me curls so I knew what to expect and was prepared to do what I needed to do to get the waves I wanted so I bought this hoping I could still acheieve waves.

                PROCESS IN USING WAND:
                I set it to 400 degrees (it shot up in heat instantly so it was more than ready to use within a minute) I read the instructions and did what it told me to do as far as parting my hair in 3 sections (bottom, middle, and top) I sprayed the bottom part with manageable hair spray (a quick mist over entire bottom area)and began to curl as instructed (I did big chunks at a time and little as well). I held it over the wand for varying times from about 6 seconds to 20 seconds and either way when you let the hair drop off the wand you get amazing curls. I held about an inch of the ends away from the curler though to get a more natural look and to not burn myself. (It comes with a half glove to prevent burning yourself) but I ended up taking it off and I managed not to burn myself without it. I let the second layer of hair down, quickly misted with hair spray and repeated the process until the 3rd layer was let down and curled and had a whole head of pretty amazing curls. With the length of my hair doing my whole head took about 10-15 minutes surprisingly and will probably be a lot quicker my second time around.

                FINAL RESULT:
                As I did not want "curls" but just waves, I took my fingers and ran them through my hair a few times to break up the curls and then I combed them out with a wide tooth comb which helped break them up further and give them a more separated and layered look. I then took a hair straightener I had on and lightly went over the curls to get a more beachy waves look than spiral curls look and it worked perfectly. This was my first time using the wand and I can't wait to use it again. I went to sleep with the waves as they were and woke up with EVEN BETTER waves in my hair so the curls stay if you put a little spray in your hair which is awesome. In just combing the curls out with your fingers and a wide tooth comb that may even be a good enough "wavy" look for some of you but I wanted a more subtle and natural look so I straightened it a bit.

                NOTES: The wand is non-stick so the hair you wrap around it DOES slide down the wand sometimes but it's not that hard to adjust it so that it's where you want it to be. Practice will make perfect as this product does exactly what it is designed to do. I am used to heat products FRYING my hair (especially the ends) but since this is Tourmaline Ceramic it made my hair silky, smooth, and shiny. This wasn't my first choice for a curling wand but it was all they had that I researched at the store (It was my second choice) and I am glad I got it. It's really a great wand. I would only recommend this to people with hair from right under jawline- mid length hair like mine as if it's longer it will take more time and effort and you'd prob be better off using a 1 1/2 - 2 inch barrel instead of the 1/2 - 1 like I have. I will however be getting the bigger barrel for the best of both worlds. I also think if you hold your hair around the wand for maybe 3-5 seconds (which sounds too short to work I know but on the 400 setting it's enough) it will probably give you waves without having to use the straightener but I'll try that my second go round.

                • Q:

                  Is this dual voltage? I am looking for one that operates at 220V, so that I can use this in Europe.

                    A:

                    You Curl has 5 temperature settings. Power is the low setting. 400 is the highest temperature setting. For thick, resistant hair, the highest setting is best. For easy to style and treated hair, the lower settings are recommended.

                    It can be used on shoulder length or longer hair.

                    Use the glove which is included before styling. Simply section smooth hair strand and wrap around the barrel, holding the ends taut.
