BaBylissPRO MiraCurl - Professional Curl Machine Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I have thick hair with a little bit of wave. When I have extra time on my hands, I like to curl my hair all around. I've recently been using the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl Professional Curl Machine when I want bold, even curls that don't require a lot off effort.

BaBylissPRO MiraCurl is unlike any hair tool I've ever used. It’s a revolutionary way to create curls – a tool that automatically forms one curl after another. Inside this machine is the MaxLife™ PRO brushless motor, which provides precision control for all curl types. The nano titanium curl chamber – into which hair is gently pulled, heated and held – imparts silky shine to finished curls. The MiraCurl lets you control temperature, time and curl direction, providing the flexibility to form loose waves, soft swirls, defined curls, and more. It even signals when it’s time to release the curl. It heats quickly, up to 450°F, to produce curl after curl.

After using the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl several times now, I think it's an inventive curling tool that's easy to use and provides nice curls. I do think, however, it could use some tweaks to make it better and more user-friendly.

I have thick, coarse hair and I've had to play around with the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl a lot to get desired results. It's easy to use but I think my hair may not be a real good match for it. On the other hand, my oldest daughter has soft, straight, manageable hair and is able to get beautiful curls out of the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl.

There are detailed instructions on how to use the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl and I recommend that you read them before use. I like the setting controls on the side of the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl where I can control which way I want the curls to fall and temperature settings. It would be more convenient if the setting controls had indicators to show directions and temperatures so I didn't have to memorize them or always refer to the instruction book.
Once plugged in, the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl heats up quickly. The curls are created when you place a section of hair in the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl chamber, and a motor will spin to turn the hair into curls of desired direction. It beeps when each section of hair is ready to be released. That helps prevent overheating of the hair.

Like I said before, I think the BaBylissPRO MiraCurl could use some improvements for better user experience but I also think it's a productive curling device once you get the hang of it.

I've seen this on TV before and the first thing that came to my mind was that it looked like a huge tangle waiting to happen! So glad that for the most part it worked well for you!

That looks like it could be a massive ouch in the making.

I would love to have one of these of my own. I love to wear my hair curly but the irons that I have just do not curl it the way that I'd like. I would love to give this a try
