Curl-Tastic is a set of “As Seen on TV” hair curlers that includes a detachable handle to help style your hair in half the time of traditional methods. In fact, the company claims it’s so easy that you’ll be finished in 1, 2, 3.
Similar to Perfect Bacon Bowl, Chop Magic, and many others, Curl-Tastic is manufactured by Allstar Products Group based out of Hawthorne, NY. The company is not listed with the Better Business Bureau, despite being in business since 1999. Regarding Curl-Tastic specifically, it appears to be a new product, though it’s URL has been registered since 2012, and an abandoned trademark was filed this same year. As such, we were unable to located any online customer reviews during our research.
How Curl-Tastic Works
Using a detachable handle and loops that are soft and flexible, Curl-Tastic claims to allow you to roll your hair “with just one simple motion.” In fact, the company claims that the process is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Attach the handle to your roller.
- Roll your hair.
- Detach the handle.
As such, each Curl-Tastic set includes the following items (see more about this in the following section):
- 10 Medium Sized Rollers – Big, bouncy curls.
- 10 Small Rollers – Tighter curls and waves.
- 2 Curl-Tastic Handles
Curl-Tastic Pricing & Refund Policy
While the advertised price for Curl-Tastic is only $10, keep in mind that you’ll be charged $7.95 for shipping and handling on the first 10 rollers, and an additional $7.95 S&H for the second set of 10, which you won’t be able to opt out of. This ultimately brings your total to $25.90, which is much higher than the advertised price.
Curl-Tastic comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges (see the Bottom Line section for additional details). To initiate the process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 866-783-8242.

While we don’t think Curl-Tastic is a scam, keep the following in mind before finalizing your purchase:
First, “As Seen on TV” products often don’t work as well as advertised, and as a result, generally have lower levels of customer satisfaction. With this in mind, Curl-Tastic appears to be a new product, and we were unable to locate any online customer reviews during our research.
Next, as we mentioned in our “As Seen on TV” Buyer’s Guide, most of these companies make their money on shipping and handling charges, and Curl-Tastic appears to be no different. For example, if you decide to return the product, you’ll immediately be out almost $16 in S&H and charges, in addition to any costs you incur sending it back to the company. This means that by the time everything is said and done, you could spend well over $20 for a product you no longer own.
Bottom line: between the lack of reviews, and the steep, non-refundable shipping and handling charges, you may want to think twice about ordering Curl-Tastic. On top of this, the manufacturer’s other products that we’ve reviewed (Perfect Bacon Bowl and Chop Magic) do not appear to be performing well, with the most common complaints citing failure to work as advertised, difficulty reaching customer service, and long shipping times. So keep in mind that you may have a similar experience with Curl-Tastic.
