Arc Styler Review
Arc Styler reviews say that the Arc Styler was plugged in and the temperature was set for 370° and the Arc Styler straightener began to smoke. Used the Arc Styler to straighten hair but it did not glide smoothly but stuck to the hair! The plastic on the teeth melted but was able to remove the plastic without damaging any hair!
Was so hoping the Arc Styler straightening brush would do the job but it just didn’t straighten wavy hair. It still left some minor waves. Maybe if the inner teeth were closer together it might have worked better. A blow dryer and paddle brush does a better job than the Arc Styler.
Tried the Arc Styler twice- 1st time tried to revive/remove hair after ironing it the day before. It just got really hot and didn’t straighten out any of the (relatively few) kinks! (2nd time) tried it at a higher temp after going to bed with wet hair, so it was much less straight than the first trial and fluffier as well. Same result, after 15 min (takes much longer than a flat iron would have taken). Hair just got really hot and didn’t straighten.
Arc Styler is too awkward to maneuver.
Arc Styler did not work. Tried the Arc Styler on fine and curly hair but it didn’t look good.
Arc Styler did not leave hair straight or frizz-free. Had to do multiple passes to match how hair would look from blow dry only with a round brush. And this is after blow drying with a paddle brush. Arc Styler doesn’t come close to a flat iron or round hot brush.
Arc Styler didn’t work for thick hair. It doesn’t do as good a job as the flat iron. With a flat iron, hair comes out soft, smooth and shiny with no frizz or puff. With the Arc Styler, it was like blow dried hair while brushing it with a paddle brush. It was frizzy, not smooth or flat and it fried the ends!! Had to set the temperature to 430 degrees because a lower temperature did nothing to hair. According to the directions, hair type which is medium to thick should only need to be at 400 degrees. Arc Styler is a total disappointment.
Turned the Arc Styler on and waited and waited and waited but it barely got hot enough to straighten hair. Even had it turned on all the way up to 450 degrees but it didn’t get hot enough. The next day it did get hotter, however, still not 450 degrees hot. With super curly hair the Arc Styler needs to get super hot heat to get hair to straighten out.
Arc Styler is bulky and didn’t work that well.
Arc Styler heats quickly and does not pull hair. However, it doesn’t straighten hair as well as a flat iron. For very fine and very curly hair it got sort of straight, but left a good bit of frizz. The Arc Styler is probably better for thicker hair.
