We’ve received several great questions about the new BeLissPRO® Curl Genius Professional Curl Machine, so we thought we’d put together a handy dandy list of Frequently Asked Questions. If we missed yours, please leave a comment and we’ll be sure to address it!
Q: What is the BeLissPRO® Curl Genius Professional Curl Machine?
A: This tool gives you a revolutionary way to create curls! It creates perfect curls one after another by drawing the hair strand into its titanium curl chamber automatically. Once the hair is inside, it is held, heated and perfectly timed according to your preferred time/temperature settings.
Q: What type of hair textures can you use this tool on?
A: The Curl Genius can be used on any type of real hair, whether it is your natural hair or is attached with extensions. DO NOT use with synthetic hair of any kind.
Q: Do you have to straighten your hair before using?
A: It is not necessary to straighten your hair before using the Curl Genius.
Q: Will my hair get stuck?
A: Always follow the instructions that the Curl Genius comes with and your hair will not get stuck.
If, for any reason, too much hair is drawn into the curling chamber; there is no need to worry because the Curl Genius is smart! The machine will stop and the curling motor will reverse the hair out; simply re-do with a narrower section of hair.
Another tip – it always helps (especially with wavy hair) to comb through the section of hair before placing it in the curling chamber.
Q: What are the temperature settings?
A: It has two heat settings – 390°F/430°F
Q: What is the difference between the three curl settings?
A: The 8, 10, 12 second settings give you different curl effects.
-Use less time and/or lower heat for fine hair; more time/higher heat for thicker, textured hair.
-More time/higher heat will give you the boldest, longest-lasting curls
