I was afraid that my hair would get all tangled but I was taught by my hairdressers how to use it correctly and i am so inlove with it! I can easily do any styles I like with it and even curl the tips on my daughters hair for that cute innocent look!!! It's super gentle surprisingly! I honestly thought it would tug my hair but it does not. Just be sure not to play around with it and rotate it in such an abnormal way..... This is why I am not letting my daughter stay close to the tron!
