Amika 4P Interchangeable Barrel Curler Set

What it is: A curling wand that includes four clip-free barrels for smooth curls and waves of any size or style. What it does: Unlike a traditional curling iron, the clip-free wand is designed for fast and easy styling without tugging, breaking, or creasing the hair. Four interchangeable tourmaline barrels, fused with ceramic for even heating, easily create curls of any size and shape. Tourmaline is a natural source of negative ions and far–infrared heat, which provides faster and safer styling. Negative ions eliminate frizz and seals the cuticle to create smooth, shiny hair. Ready to use in 10 seconds, the temperature remains constant curl after curl, allowing you to work quickly while attaining consistent results. This set contains:- Curling wand (140°-430°F digital adjustable temperature with auto shut off)- 0.70-1 inch barrel- 0.75 inch barrel- 1 inch barrel- 1.25 inch barrel- Heat-resistant gloveWhat else you need to know:This curler has the following features:-140-430°F digital adjustable temperature-Light indicator for when desired temperature is reached-Dual voltage 110V-240V-One-year warranty-Programmable automatic shut off-Easy grip heat resistant surface-9 foot 360° swivel cord

yes! I bought this product in store and was really debating whether or not to purchase this and the sales person told me "you can always return it if you don't like it". However you may not want to return it, it's an amazing product if you read my recent review :)

I have never had any issue returning any product to Sephora but always save my original packaging until I know for sure it's a keeper and always keep all my receipts.

I asked this question to the cashier that checked me out. She said if I did not like the set, I could bring it back. It needs to be accompanied with the receipt.

Is there a "How To" video or something???
I am new with this type of a curling iron and I cannot figure out how to get my hair to curl. Is there a how to video or instruction manual that shows how to wrap/curl the hair around the barrel?

I'm sure you can find tutorials on youtube if you look. But some quick tips on how to use one:
1. You can section your hair starting with the lower layers, thene the back sections, or just work in sections moving away from your face. Use smaller sections of hair if you want the smaller more defined perm-like curls, and larger sections for looser wavier curls. A good rule is pick sections that are about the width of the barrel you are using.
2. Wrap hair around the barrel starting at the base with your fingers holding the end of your hair, and hold the hair until the desired amount of time on the barrel has passed.
3. Remember that near your face the most flattering curls turn out and away from your face. The easiest way to do this is to pull your hair towards the mirror you are looking at ( should be straight out from your face). Place the barrel on top and angled slightly down towards the shoulder on the same side as the section of hair.
4. Hold the curl dependant on how tight you would like it. Obviously beach waves you would hold shortly, while updo like curls will require more time on the iron. (Try not to hold you hair in place longer than 20 seconds, as you do not want to damage it, and shouldn't need more than 10 seconds with quality irons unless it is very thik and unmanigeable).
You will still need to use a heat protecting product before use, and will need hair completely dry as with traditional irons. Apply a type of setting product (finishing gloss, or hairspray) if you wish to add more hold or shine. If you aren't sure wether you will like this kind of curling iron, practice with your traditional clip kind. Just do not clip your hair, keep the clip down, and wrap starting at the base like I stated. The main difference between the two is really preference. It is much easier to creat carefree kinkless curls with this type of barrel, and you are less likely to burn your hair with this, fingers though... ;)

I had my first one for a few months and it stopped working. I exchanged it for a second one which I've had for over a year and it just stopped working today. So, I would say, no more than a year.

I have quite a few Amika styling tools, the oldest of which is 2 years. Still working strong with almost daily use. I also own the predecessor to this item which only has 3 different sized barrels, it is 1.5 years old and still works like it did on day 1.

They usually only sell these in stores on the East coast and West coast... so if you live there you should be able to find it in the store. I had to order it online, but because of the price I got free 3 day shipping and it was here before I knew it!

Question
Will this cut my styling time in half or...?
I ordered this curler set about 2 weeks ago. With the hopes of cutting my styling time in half and not damaging my locks, compared to my cheap conair iron. Unfortunately, this iron takes JUST as long to style my hair as my $20 curling iron (which is 45+ minutes!!) And at the end of the day, I have barely there curls left intact. I have thick layered wavy hair that goes down to just above my breasts. I want to know if perhaps I'm doing something wrong thats making this happen? I curl my hair at 380 degrees, use like 1 inch sections to thoroughly heat my locks, and keep it on the barrel for like 7-10 seconds.

I wanted to add to Saspants's answer, since she brought up a good point.

You might have very healthy hair, which is harder to get curls out of and for curls to stay in. I have pretty healthy (I don't blow dry and I don't curl often) virgin hair, and it's quite coarse. With traditional clip curling irons, I have to take very small sections, or curls just won't come out. I have the hardest-to-curl-and-keep-curls-hair out of anyone I know.

Even so, this curling wand has given me great results. The curls lasting more than a day was a myth until I tried this wand. I think taking smaller sections will definitely help you out.

I don't think you are doing anything wrong it just sounds like you have been blessed with a glorious mane of hair! I have this set and it does take longer to achieve good, even curls all over since properly done, the hair must be sectioned off. Since my hair is finely textured these curls will last for days. You may want to try spraying a setting product on each section before curling, it won't speed up the process but it will help your hair hold the curl longer, making your effort seem more worthwhile!

Is your other curling iron you're referring to the one with a clip? Do you clip the end of the hair section and roll it up? If so, read on.

When I want a more polished/formal look, I like to keep my hair flat on the curling iron (like wrapping a ribbon on a candy cane). For this, I prefer the curling iron with a clip and just roll it up the length of the hair and it is much faster. Doing this on the wand is harder for me because I have to let go of the hair while wrapping so it stays flat along the wand and I often lose some of the hair from my grip in the process.

If I want a casual look, I just take a section and just wrap it around the wand, kind of like taking that ribbon and squishing/rolling it to look like a shoe lace and just wrap. This might be why you are having problems with your curls not staying throughout the day. If your hair is not flat against the barrel, then some of the hair is not really on the barrel, and is not getting enough heat because there is like a stack of hair. It will help if you use smaller sections. One inch section twirled in a tube shape rather than a ribbon is kind of thick and there is uneven distribution of heat.

You may get faster wrapping the hair so even if you take smaller sections, you could potentially cut time by using the wand and have long lasting curls.

Simply put, your hair sections might be too big for the curls to stay.

i haven't measured but about the same as other typical curling irons. i would guess 1/2 inch, 1 inch, and 2 inch. there are two different 1/2 inch one is the same diameter top to bottom and the other gets wider towards the bottom for a more natural looking progressive curl
