I'm sure you have all heard of this curling wand many many times before! I bought this a couple of years ago, from what I can recall it cost around £25.00 from Argos. Previously, any time I wanted to curl my hair I had to use the only other hair tool I possess - the GHD. It curls well, but I find the curls are too "ringlety" looking and flat, and I was after a more natural look.
You can adjust the setting if you wish, but the default 180 degree setting works perfectly well for me. A heat protecting glove is provided, but I don't particularly think it is overly protective! I suppose it takes the edge off any burns you may get!
It is quite a lightweight tool, so easy to use (even for me!). I love the flower design on it! :)
So... here are my before and after photos! In my "before" pic, I had just washed my hair the night before. I used my Mane n' Tail Detangler but I let my hair dry naturally. I don't use any styling products before I curl my hair!
What do you all think?! My hair is quite long and thick, I don't really have any layers cut into my hair. It look me about 30 minutes to curl it like this. I could put a bit more time in and end up with tighter curls but I like to twist my hair around the wand in order to get a loose kind of wavy look like this.
If you have tried this wand, let me know if you love it as much as I do! If you don't have it - get it! It is absolutely brilliant and incredibly inexpensive!
