Amazing And Easy!
I'm sure there are other good clipless curlers out there, but this is the first one I've tried and I love it. My hair is long, fine, and super straight. In fact, it's so straight and hard to curl that I've never actually been able to do it at home. By the time I got to the back, the front would have already fallen flat. So after a dozen attempts, a couple different clipped curlers, and a spiral curler, I gave up completely on curling. Even when I had my hair professionally done, it took so much time, money, and product to get a curl to last more than an hour that it was only worth it for very, very special occasions.
On my first try with the Grande I had amazing results in 30 min (I'm a novice curler and also impatient, so this was shocking)! I did half my hair in tight ringlets and half in loose beachy curls, just to try. Without any spray or other products, the curls stood up to combing, running my fingers through them, pinning them up half a dozen ways, and just generally playing with them until I washed my hair the next morning.
I actually find the clipless curler way easier to use than a clipped one, and it gives smooth, shiny curls without any kinks. My hair doesn't feel dry and damaged after using it, unlike other curlers I've tried which leave my hair dry and brittle after one curl (still, I only curl 2 or 3 times a month max, so that keeps my hair pretty healthy). No burns so far, but the top of the handle does get pretty hot, so keep your hand low on the grip. Definitely worth trying if you're impatient and have tough to curl hair.
