Our Curl Secret Review
Curl Secret is designed to make hair curling easier, because it does most of the work for you. There are instructions on the website to show you how to obtain nice curls. Here are some observations from our product tests.
- Beeps – The product includes beeps to tell you when a curl is complete. It may also alert you if the product is overheating.
- Curls – The curls created by Curl Secret are perhaps more like waves than curls. The tightness of curls seems to depend on how much hair is inserted at a time. We found the curls held up well, especially after applying hair spray.
- Speed – It takes about 8 seconds to create a curl.
- Hair problems – The two concerns we encountered were that some sections became frizzy, and on occasion became tangled in the product. The creators of Curl Secret accounted for possible tangles by including a safety feature.
- Learning curve. It takes a few tries to get the feel for creating nice curls with Curl Secret. Impatient users may try to curl too much hair at once, which will result in either very loose curls or frizzy hair. Or both. Watching their “how to” videos is helpful.
Keep in mind that Curl Secret may work better when used a couple of millimeters away from the roots
Aside from a few minor issues, we found the product to be exceptional, and a satisfying alternative to manual hair curling. Not everyone will have the patience to learn the nuances required to make this product perform at its best. Those who do will not be disappointed. We give Curl Secret a four star rating.
Minor issues aside, Curl Secret is a viable alternative to a traditional curling iron, and potentially a superior choice for those who don’t like using curling irons.
