It is fully tangle-free (and my thick hair would definitely be voted "most likely to tangle" if hair salons were like yearbooks.) It curls beautifully with the touch of a button. The Curl Dial button can be pushed to curl left or right when you place the curler vertically next to a piece of hair. It whips the hair right into the InstaWave! It doesn't pull or hurt at all. You only have to hold it for 5-10 seconds and then you have a pretty curl! It has a high/low setting option and the highest heat is 420.
I love that it automatically shuts off after 90 minutes because hot hair irons are a common forgotten fire risk that they've thought of.
Doing my hair usually takes forever (i.e. an hour), but with this baby I was finished in under 10 minutes and ready to go. I got so many compliments from my family and friends.
In the US, KISS InstaWave is available in Target, Ulta & Amazon.com In Canada, Kiss InstaWave is available at Walmart. They run about $60, but this is one item I consider to be worth it, for sure.
