I have been a big fan of Kiss Products since their nail days, now that they are branching out into cosmetics and hair appliances; I am really excited to see what they bring to the table! I carry all their plumping lip glosses in my kit already, and I enjoy quite a few of their cosmetics for my personal use, so when I was offered the chance to try their new InstaWave, I jumped at the chance!

Kiss InstaWave Review | How to use Kiss Instawave | KIss hair appliances

Kiss InstaWave sounded like a dupe for the Instyler, but it’s not, it is different. It’s a fully automatic tangle free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls. This means no more worrying about tangling, burning your fingers, or perfectly wrapping sections of hair around the wand. I was glad to see that is was reasonably priced at $60. The instructions seemed simple enough, and I love using a curling wand to make sure my curls are frizz free ringlets all day, but I am also pretty useless at hair and was worried I would tangle my hair to oblivion with the InstaWave.

The first thing I noticed about the InstaWave? The settings; there is a curl dial with two settings, one for left and one for right. Then there is a high, low, and off button to control the heat. The high heat setting maxes out at 420˚ and there is also an indicator light so you know when the InstaWave is ready to use.  I also noticed the wand was really shiny, like it was covered in glitter.

One thing I would say about the Kiss InstaWave is there is a definite learning curve if you are new to doing your own hair or using rotating appliances. I recommend using the rotating hair catch with the heat off a few times, as I did get my hair wrapped around wrong because I was not used to it. Luckily your hair doesn’t actually get tangled in the wand, as it slides right out quite nicely, by pulling the wand downward. However, you really don’t want to have that happen with the heat on! Once I got the hang of it, I was done with my hair in less than ten minutes! I DID MY WHOLE HEAD OF THICK CURLY HAIR IN LESS THAN TEN MINUTES! Since I have curly hair, I wasn’t going to straighten it first. I simply brushed out my curls and started with a full frizzy mess, applied some argan oil, and got to work. I was really impressed with how easy it was to use it in both hands on either side of my head, and with how I never had to touch the iron, it truly is automatic and no more wearing weird gloves or burning your fingers!

Look at these naturally gorgeous curls!

Pros:

  • No burning your fingers
  • Heats up in under 2 minutes
  • Easy to use, no directions required
  • Automatically shuts off after 90 minutes
  • Can be used like a regular curling wand also
  • Low heat setting is hot enough to style my curls

 

Cons:

  • Need to practice to use correctly

Having to practice before using it is the only con I found, and I only recommend this part so you don’t risk any heat damage if you are a newbie to hair like I am.

I definitely plan to get some serious use out of my Kiss InstaWave. My favorite thing about it is that I can also use it like a regular curling wand. After I finished my hair and combed out my curls, I chose a few loose strands to curl around the barrel without using the rotating hair catch and they look beautiful! Not burning my fingers for once was a huge plus for me, and with winter here I know my curls will also look frizz free with my InstaWave!
