The tool is designed to create flawless waves and curls in just four seconds per one-inch section. The ultra-fast curl speed is thanks to a chamber made of some of the most effective heat conducting materials found on earth: ceramics infused with volcanic lava powder derived from actual lava rocks. And with ceramic part of the equation, the brand promises not only lightning-fast, top-quality curls, but a high-shine finish too. To find out if this much-anticipated extension of the ever-popular CHI collection is actually worth the hype, I did what any reliable beauty editor would do: I unboxed the tool, plugged it in, and tried it out for myself.
One look at the Spin N Curl design and I was intimidated at first lol but I sat down and started sectioning my hair off into one inch sections. I misted my hair with the CHI Thermal Protectant spray and laid the one inch section on the barrel and hit the button to curl. AMAZING!!! I had a Shirley Temple curl to come out!!
I have since found I need to mist my curl once again while it cools and sets. I let my curls set until cooled off. Then I style. My hair is VERY, VERY THICK so it takes 17 seconds for my hair to set up in the barrel. You will find out over time what works best for your hair type.
My natural hair is quite curly but it can dry unpredictably, I’d never know if my curls would dry in one direction or another — or how they’d dry at all because my hair is so thick and I have finally cut off the length of my hair. I can control the wave or the tight curl in the direction I want it to go with the two directional buttons on the tool.
I love that this curling tool leaves little room for error. Since the actual curl mechanism is housed within the decorative chamber, there’s pretty much zero chance you’ll burn yourself while attempting to curl your hair. Second, unlike other rotating curling tools, the CHI Lava knows when enough is enough and stops spinning at just the right moment each and every time. While it’s a bit nerve-wracking at first to put your trust in a tool, this one seems to have a firm grasp on healthy hair styling practices. Third, it’s the ultimate lazy-girl hair styling accessory. Where regular curling requires really paying attention to your hair and the amount of time you apply heat to it, this product takes out all the guesswork.
