lmtepp Yes, I sent the Martino styler back because it would not grip my hair. I have straight fine hair and need some lift. I hope this 1 does the trick. We will see, I am going to try using it today. 


Received my Calista today but I had just finished drying and styling my hair.  Did you use yours yet?

@rms1954 I did and I am sending it back. It made my straight hair stand-up. I so wanted to like it but I tried it twice with no luck. Did you use yours?

I did.  I really liked mine.  Do you have short hair?  I have longer layers on top and the sides and back are short.  I did get a better grip than the Martino tool.  I am able to get lift on the top layers and then use it as a comb to blend.  I did not use the hottest temperature because I think it's too hot and drying and that's what causes your hair to dry too fast and if it's short it will stick up.

@rms1954 I have medium hair. I will try it again on on a lower temperature. I struggle so much with my hair because it is straight and flat. I want to style it straight with some lift. It really has no texture, never dries out. I can't use conditioner because it make my hair too soft. The best tool that I have right now is a FHI stylus brush from HSN. That is really a good tool.
