This really does work! Alot of people thought it was just another waste of money. It actually is worth the money. It comes wth a CD that tells you how to use it. It has categories based on what kind of hair you have and what style you want to put in your hair. You can straighten it, curl it, and all types of funky hairstyles. My mom says it took her a long time to do her whole hair, but she was a beginner. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes a 1-2-3 step. I actually have fun doing my hair now. I love how the texture of my hair is afterwards. It also leaves my hair very bouncy. I don't know anyone that has used it yet. I highly recommend it, escpecially for those who have a rough time doing their hair. Also about it, it has 3 heat settings on it which are high, medium, and low. I made the mistake of setting it too high and almost burned my hair, but I didn't because I could tell it was too hot so I just turned it on medium and it was just fine. It's a must try & if you don't like it you can get your money back (atleast at Ulta you can) or the company says you can mail them.
