Curling your hair is a serious undertaking. With the strength and endurance you need to hold your your arms above your head nonstop for an hour, it should be a damn Olympic event.
CHI, a brand known for premium hair devices that last forever, decided that getting ready should be fun — not a workout. The Chi Air Spin N Curl is a one-handed curling iron that does the work for you, and it’s $60 off at Walmart.
(Even at nearly 50% off, spending $80 on a curling iron might seem ridiculous — until you realize it’s the last curling iron you’ll need to buy for a while. My Chi straightener is eight years old and is still kicking.)
At the push of a button, the CHI Air Spin N Curl creates the flawless curls that you previously only got on your salon blow-out day. Just choose your strand of hair, the Chi sucks it in, and will beep to alert you to release. While traditional irons fry your hair in the spots touching the wand, this automatic rotating barrel distributes heat to keep hair shiny and healthy (or as healthy as you can get while using heat).
This tutorial shows the magic in action:
Because the curling chamber is pretty wide, the Air Spin N Curl can’t get very close to the scalp and is more ideal for long locks. It can tackle any hair type, with thick heads of hair just needing to be separated out into small sections. On the digital face, you can choose your desired temperature, curling time, and other presets to customize styling based on your hair type.
Sure, the whole process looks like a knot waiting to happen — but the Chi Air Spin N Curl has a safety feature that automatically stops and lets you pull your hair out if something gets wrapped up inside.
Create flawless curls and waves at the push of a button with the CHI Air Spin n Curl. Hair is drawn into the curl chamber where it is heated and timed to create perfect curls and waves every time! The digital temperature display offers easily adjustable temperature settings and a selection of preset temperature settings for each hair texture, creating a customizable styling experience while avoiding unnecessary heat damage. Ceramic heat technology produces far infrared heat while the conditioning benefits of negative ions results in shinier, healthier and more beautiful hair. Curling hair has never been so effortless with the CHI Air Spin n Curl!
