I do think it's overpriced! I think that it was probably the prototypes that we got here in Australia, on the carousel - or perhaps the product heating within a case didn't meet Aus standards (would have been sooo handy for travel dangnabbit!) I have shortish shoulder length hair in a midi haircut, because I do 40's pincurls and victory rolls every day. I actually wanted this to refresh my curls mid-week. I do a wet set weekly, and my hair is healthier for drying under the hard hood with a slow heat. It's like a steam treatment, as well as a set. My hair has a scraggy wave, and is rough, so it holds a curl really well from the wet set. So about the fourth night, I wake up and it's lost some foof! Technical term that; foof! So I thought this would be really good, as I can refresh the curl quickly, while my hands are free to do things like washing up, doing make-up, nails, etc. I also figured it would be good for those days, where you plan not to style your hair because you'll be home and then have to go out, grrr- arrgh! Anyone with a midi hairstyle knows that it is NOT a wash and wear thing! Especially if you have crazy, frizzy, rough hair, like me! So at least I could get some shiny waves and put in some hair slides in a hurry. Well, it is perfect for all those things! It was probably a lot easier for me than for some because I roll my hair in pincurls nearly every day. I could probably do it in my sleep, so it was really easy for me to clip a shell on as the last step, instead of chucking in a bobby pin or three. Well, it does exactly what I wanted. It returned shine and bounce to my hair with no damage, no need to re-set, and hands free to do other things. I have three times as much hair as most people, and was surprised to get all of my hair into just 15 clips, when I use about 30 plus rollers in my hair for a wet set. I think I would need extra shells if I had long hair, but as it is a little bit longer than chin length, and not quite shoulder length, this is ideal. Totally did what I expected, as I had a slightly different angle on what I wanted to achieve than most people would have had. I can't say enough about how good this is for me, thanks to Guy Tang on you tube for showing me they existed, and extra thanks to my lovely husband and mum, who bought them for me for my birthday! Love them truly! And PS. I was a little hesitant as hot rollers NEVER EVER held a curl in my hair because my hair is coarse. But these little babies held really well. A+ Linda Flowers, who thought of these!
