To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have very thick hair and I wear it in a sleek bob. The heaviness of my hair tends to pull my hair down flat. My hairdresser showed me a little trick to lift up the hair in a few sections above the ear and crimp horizontally close to the scalp. It works really well to add some fullness framing the face and the hair from the top of my head covers the little bit of crimping I do leaving the top nice and smooth with some body.
As a first time crimper user, this was really great. It is a bit narrow for what I needed to use it for however it worked very well and with heat protectant spray, I had no complaints.
I gave it one less star because the packaging looked like someone had tried to open it prior and failed. Also after using once, the crimper would not close properly and the waves were not aligning when I was using it. There was also uneven crimping which I attribute to the misalignment. I had to use my hand to close the other end.
I would order this again, but it's no longer prime-eligible. I wish there was a larger ceramic version but hopefully in the future there will be! (So far I only see a chrome version)
I love this crimper. My friend bought it, and I liked the results so I bought a similar cheaper one but it wasn't good at all. This one is well worth the money. I use it at my roots for volume and it lasts a very long time. I only wash my hair twice a week, and I like that I can just use this rather than tease my hair every day.
This is a amazing product. I never knew this tool until I saw some Youtubers recommendation. So I could wait to purchase it and get a try. It works like pro. Highly recommended to everyone with thin hair.
Really fast shipping. I received the item within 7 days, which made me very happy. The item is in original package, brand new. I’m very happy with Botley Store‘s service. Will order from them if I have another chance. Vick
First of all, if you are thinking of buying this crimper, understand it is ONLY meant to be used in such a capacity as to increase hair volume. If used to try and style your hair into a crimpy style, it will not only take forever to do with this, but also look far too crimped.
I have extremely fine, oily hair that is naturally very flat against my head. I've teased my hair for years to try and remedy this, but teasing is time consuming and, because of the texture of my hair, often requires I re-tease later on in the day to maintain volume. When I discovered this product, it was actually through the more expensive version. Being that I've spent so much money in the past on previous hot irons and curling irons and such, and never was that happy, I wasn't willing to go for it again. So I found this much, much more affordable version and couldn't be happier!
As many have explained, to use this, first lift up the top layer of hair around your head and clip it up and out of the way. Then simply crimp all the hair below at the roots, which lifts it up.
Some people have said that it's difficult to get the hang of using this, since it can be really easy to see where you've crimped your hair if not hidden well by the top layers. However, I didn't find this to be the case with me. Maybe it's because I have lighter hair or just because the texture of my hair is different, but I was even able to go so far as to crimp some of the top layers of my hair without it really being detectable!
I have found that this method of increasing volume lasts longer than teasing and can even last into the following day if you decide not to shower. Just can't get over this handy tool!
The first photo of me is right after I showered, blow-dried, and straightened my hair. The second is after using this Little Tease Crimper. The third is my final styled look, where I spent a quick and easy 15 seconds teasing my hair and then followed it up with a little spritz of hairspray.
