mhtinkerbell, Fantastic! You know you have to show me your results, girl! I hope it works for you as well. I'm excited for you. =D Oh, and I used a Solia to do mine, too.
spoiltmom, Well, I took an afternoon to do mine. I would say... maybe a span of 3-5 hours total including the waiting time. I think it would depend on how efficient you are working with your own hair or if you enlist a friend's help. With this system, too, you do it all in one day. I think with some other systems you let it sit after ironing for anywhere from 24-72 hours. Then it will save you time between ironing and such.
