ok so i bought both of these items at different times, and the one thing i noticed is the curl secret has to have a small amount of hair only. i seriously gave up before i got done with most of my hair and had to give up because my arms hurt! to say its an easy use in the infomercial is a lie. the instyler however took me no time! i actually love my hair too, i mean its not very curly but its soft and has a few curls and lots of body! also the instyler was cheaper then the curl secret! to be honest i may get the curl secret to have curls later but i am satisfied with only the in styler i can wear my hair like this and be happy a day long. have any of you tried the nono hair removal? i want to try that next!
