          Big problem with this product: The black silicone tabs along the barrel placed there to keep the hair from slipping, causes your hair to snag when being released. I don't have a problem using wands and know how to keep my hair on them but this quick fix to keep the hair on leaves hair frizzy. When sliding hair off, you are trying to fix the curl because it is going everywhere. Not worth it. Had to go with a wand of a smaller size because no other brand makes wands in that size. Just a little tip ladies, when using a wand, after the hair is wrapped around it, just hold it at a slight angle. You get the silkiness of the smooth barrel without the snag. My recommendation is to skip it.

          Great product, great price; hate the black "bumpers" on the barrel though, they sometimes create kinks in my hair and I'll have to re-do those curls. I wish they made it without those, my smaller curler doesn't have them (same brand)

                Comments about Conair You Big Waves:

                I only used this curling wand twice, once with each barrel. It worked great. It heated up quick and you only have to hold each section of hair for about 15 sec. The curls even lasted into the next day. The rubber strips on the barrel worked great as well, the hair stayed in place on the wand and did not slip to the end at all like with most tapered wands. I would definitely recommend this to someone who likes tapered wands. I still gave it 5 stars even though I learned that I don't like the look and shape of the curls tapered wands create, which is no fault of the wand itself. I still just really prefer the look and shape a traditional curling wand creates. I returned this curling iron only for that reason, otherwise I would have gladly kept it.

                  I've had good luck so far! This is my first time using a wand so I'm still figuring it out but it's pretty easy to use and so simple to change out the barrels. I like the results of the bigger barrel attachemnt but I have used both.

                    I have difficulties curling my hair and even keeping it curled. I use this every day now and it takes fifteen minutes! I have long hair that goes all the way down my back and it is the easiest and fastest product I have ever owned. Must buy!
