Obsessed!!

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

I have really thick unruly hair, and recently got it cut to my shoulders, which means, I have to actually take the time to do my hair. I was tired of just straightening it and came across this curling iron. I've never once curled my hair myself before this iron. And man does this thing work wonders! It left my hair looking gorgeous, soft and shiny. It was so easy to use and learn how to use. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! It's so worth the price.

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

I saw this product being demonstrated and I stopped to have my hair done. My hair is a little longer then shoulder length and is straight. I have tried so many curling "wands" and still could not master a curl and always wound up returning the wands. So I had to stop and see what this curling iron was all about. My hair came out beautiful with nice loose curls and I was shown exactly how to use it. I did buy one and was very excited to start using it. It was very easy to use and I was able to create the same curls as the person demonstrating it did. I did notice that the hair will snag at the bottom (as many others in their reviews have stated). so you just have to adjust for that. As far as some of the other reviews stating it does not have a "kick stand"...it does not ,however, the base is a rubbery type of material and when you place it down it stays in place....I am so happy I can now have the beachy waves/curls that I was trying to achieve with a wand. Maybe they can figure out how to prevent that "snagging" from happening.

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

    The second I got home I was so excited - turned it on - it heated up and kept flashing. Then it displayed error. I unplugged and plugged it back in, chose a different temperature - still, error. The power button wouldn't turn it off. Had to unplug it. Decided to try to curl a piece of hair without it reading a temp, and immediately my hair started smoking. The barrel was super hot, so I think it kept heating up to the max temp. This is going back ASAP. I'm so disappointed and I will definitely not buy a replacement from drybar. Invest in some quality testing. Also, I couldn't find in the instructions, or online, troubleshooting for the error message. Wouldn't recommend.

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

      I really wanted this curling iron to work, but it was okay. I like that it had heat settings and that it heated up quickly. It had a little stand for the iron, so that it wouldn't mess up your counter. I loved the concept of swirling around the iron, looked easy in video tutorials. It took a few attempts, but I was finally able to swirl and get an okay-ish curl. The curls barely lasted (mind you, I have manageable hair...and it is naturally wavy.) I wasn't crazy about the clamp. Overall, it didn't achieve the curls I wanted, so I returned it

            I first purchase drybar's 3 day bender about 3 years ago. It was amazing. Awesome quality. Held my thick hair in place. Gave perfect curl.
            Then the mother burned out while in the UK. So I bought a new one 2 weeks ago. It's awful. Lighter construction, metal bar has too much gap - will only hold hair in place if you put hair directly on middle of iron. So disappointed.

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

              I had a 20% off coupon so I bought the 3day bender and the wand. I personally prefer the wand (that's another review). The 3 day bender heats up really fast. It's very cute. I loved it when I took It out of the box. I thought for sure, out of the 2, the bender would be the keeper. When it came time to use it, everything changed. The clip is tight on the top of the barrel but loosens as It goes down. Hence, the reason on YouTube they tell you to start at the top of your head and work down. If you cant get your hair in the clip just right, it'll slip out. AND when you finally get your hair just right, the barrel twists and possibly gets snagged at the bottom of the barrel where there is space between the barrel and handle. NOPE! Sorry, that's just too much work. I don't like pulling out my hair in my curlers. If you ladies can get It to work for you, mad respect. I couldn't do It. Cute idea but not for me.

              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.
