How to spot a fake…ODo (warning, Aliexpress, DHGate etc have "Babyliss" branded fakes for around £10, be careful buying from third parties, I'd buy from Amazon themselves or a trusted retailer only).

Other ways to spot a fake Curl Secret:
Check out the box - genuine packaging is sturdily built, thick cardboard, precise printing/colours, embossing, no spelling errors.
Genuine Babyliss comes with a Warranty Card or Leaflet (mine, and the instructions were in a clear plastic bag).
Egg crate carton top and bottom, inside the box, as protection with the real thing (though some fakes have this too).
It should come with a curl chamber cleaning tool (two-pronged tool like this):
Fake Babyliss have "Babyliss"-stamped silver metal ring, near the cable - real ones are blank.
Genuine Curl Secrets have good weight, counterfeits are light and build quality/finishing is poor (eg, Babyliss print wears off quickly - typeface looks "off", poor casting, thinner plastic - when you tap it it feels shallow, edges "rough").
Cable is thinner on the fake versus genuine model.
If your hair gets caught with the real one, it automatically stops, preventing any damage - counterfeits apparently don't have the safety cut-off facility.

(About the Miracurl but applies to this model too)…ke/

The authentic one…
… heats up much faster.
… curls better and the heat feels more regulated so I am confident that my hair won’t burn.
… does NOT snag your hair. The authentic one has a safety feature where the curler stops sucking in hair when there’s a snag. The fake one does NOT have that feature. I found my hair being caught in the fake one one too many times.
… does not emit a burning plastick-y smell. The fake one does and this was the ultimate reason why I decided to invest in the authentic one. I am deathly afraid of fire and burning so every time I curled my hair with the fake one, I was so paranoid that it would just burst into flames or explode! I would actually turn off the fake MiraCurl in mid-curling to make it ‘rest’. With the authentic one, I could curl continuously and I was confident that it wouldn’t turn into a fire hazard.

In use, be sure to comb each strand before each curl, makes life a bit easier

The new Pro model (Babyliss Pro Steamtech BAB2665SE) has been 93 EUR at its cheapest earlier this month, now at 97 EUR.…0NQ

Apparently the steam function makes curls last longer and is better for the hair.
