Talking Spin Curl Dryer!

I was mindlessly browsing the internet tonight, and stumbeled across the Remington SpinCurl Dryer! I got a good chuckle out of it. Its a hair blower that you stick your hair into and it blow dries it into a tightly wound curl. Just watching the video reviews on youtube and peoples hair spinning around and around in the hairblower attachment was just funny! Its nice to seem straightees trying to get curly hair

So what do you guys think of this dryer, has anyone heard of it before?

This is video on youtube for the dryer

I honestly dont like it. The end results doesnt look as nice and it's like the hair is getting beat up in the dryer attatchment. Just too cruel. I personally think it's just a waste of time and money.

It's like a hot air hair blender.

This looks like a hair disaster waiting to happen!!! I think curling irons would be a safer bet.
2a, fine-med. text, normal porosity (I think)

Wouldn't that make your hair really tangled? And if your hair has a natural wave to it all I bet it would frizz later on...

Wow, this would make me laugh! Just the idea of it is kinda strange. Whimaway is so right -- any kind of frizz prone hair that enters that whirling mass of wind is going to be one horror later! That thing would scare me, though. I'm good sticking with my diffuser...
Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

Low poo: Organix TTM, Essential Wholesale Free & Clean
Stylers: EcoStylers, GF Curl Shaping Gel, Aussie Aussome Volume Mousse & Instant Freeze Gel, GFPC, LALNC, La Bella Lots of Curls, Apricot Oil, KMFUM, AO B5DG
Extras: sugar scrubs, AVG washes, pre-poos with EVCO, oiling scalp before washes, plopping, gelatin PT.
Mod-CG since 12/1/10!

Ummm...there is no way the curls on that hair model came from that hair dryer alone. Those are clearly curling iron curls.

That being said, I think it would be freaking awesome to every once in a while use this hair dryer for a really edgy club hairstyle by not separating the twists and putting a little pomade on them to keep them from frizzing. But I'm pretty sure I could get a similar result without buying the dryer.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

I actually think it is pretty cool.
There are a lot of youtube videos with people using it .
I am happy there is a product out there promoting curls instead of stick straight hair.

I'd try it. What the hell? I'm not prone to frizz.
