The Air Curler: Does This Thing Actually Work?

Can "air vortex technology" really curl your hair? If not, I've come up with another use for it.

I'm kind of a snob when it comes to advertising. OK, I'm a huge snob when it comes to advertising, and also life.

If someone is literally yelling at me to buy a product while showing footage of actors having a difficult time doing basic life tasks--you know, the traditional infomercial/As-Seen-On-TV formula--I tune out.

But even though the Air Curler commercial is guilty of these advertising crimes, something about it inspired me to look a little deeper into its pink, plastic soul and give it a chance.

And here's how it went:

So, did the curls stay? That would be no.

Perhaps dirtier hair or more hairspray would've done the trick, but within an hour, I had straight-ish hair with a bit more body than I had before I used it. I also had more confetti in it than before I used it.

Have any of you tried the Air Curler? What do you think? Are there any other infomercial-y beauty products you've been pleasantly surprised by?
