Helix haircut

Has anyone tried a helix haircut? Know anyone who has had one? Is it a gimmick or a rare find that many of us have not heard of....or at least i've never heard of.

Does anyone have any info???

thanks
Is this the one where they take a curl and "notch" it so it's partially cut?

I've never heard of a Helix cut so I went Googling and here is what I found.

I also found this

A helix hair cut is when specially shaped shears are used. The blades are supposed to be twisted in a certain way and the cut is supposed to encourage the hair to curl and/or wave without a perm or use of hot rollers, etc.
Whether it works or not I couldn't tell you.
3b. Normal porosity. Medium texture. Low elasticity.

I"ve been hearing posts that some people love them but others (who haven't had the cut) are saying it's bogus....someone, somewhere that we trust on here must have had one or knows someone!


ANYONE???
I watched their video last night where they demonstrate the shears on a human hair mannequin.

They claimed there was no way to make those particular cuts without their special curved and twisted shears, and that it greatly increased the curl.

Sorry, but I just didn't see that happening. To me it looked like the hair on the mannequin was already wavy, curving in the exact same directions as their "amazing" finished result. To me all it looks like is a a convenient way to get a curved snip, sort of like how fingernail scissors are curved to make it easier to snip a rounded edge on your fingernails. But it didn't look at all to me like it increased the curl, it just looked like a curve in each snip.

On curly hair, I can't see that it would give the kind of results CG's are looking for.

ETA: Here's the video demonstrating the shears.
