Remington CI95 Pearl Wand
Advantages: Easy to use, gives great results, cheap as these products go
Disadvantages: Can be damaging to hair, as all heat can be
I'm not a big fan of Remmington products if I'm honest. I've had bad experiences with straighteners and dryers in the past so tended to stray away from them. But when it comes to curling wands, there is really not much choice!! The best did seem to be of the Remmington brand!!
I have never owned a curling wand so to know what to look for was slightly hard...! Different products promised me different things, I didn't know what to do. So I enlisted the help of my best friend who is a part time hair dresser. She showed me the best hair styler in the shop (Boots) and I went for the one next to it as it was much much cheaper :) Hello Remmington curling wand!!! At 32 euro (on offer I'll have you know...and approximately £25) it wasn't extremely cheap, but with ones jumping at me for over the Euro100 mark, I practically ran to the till with this!
The curling wand is black with a ceramic coated barrel. It has a 3 meter long cord that is fixed through a swivel connection to avoid the cord getting twisted. I really like the long cord as my striagthener has a short cord which gets knotted and twisted around everything...major grr!! Other useful features include: digital display, auto shut off and lcd lock. I found the curler heats up extremely fast which is great as it takes me ages to do my hair so I love something that Im not waiting around for. It comes with a cute carry pouch which is heat proof so you can stick in the curler in a hurry without waiting for it to cool down. As you can tell Im not a very patient person so for anybody like me out there,,,,this is the curler for you :)
I found this curler extremely easy to use. It has three buttons and can heat up to 210. I had envisioned it being so much harder as I had never curled my hair before by myself, watching my friend instead. The manual though is really simple to follow and tells you exactly what to do step by step to get luscious curls! You simply hold the hair near the root and wrap it round the wand bringing the tip of your hair to the tip of the wand, you then hold for a length of time depending on the thickness of the hair and the amount of spring you want in the curl this will of course vary, then let go and move on to the next section of hair. The wand sits easily in your hand and doesnt get uncomfortable like some would. My hair is quite thick so I would have to keep it in place a bit longer than most people would, say a minute or so.
For natural looking curls it would take up to 15 minutes to achieve. For a more dashing look for a night on the town, it would take me over a half hour. Then again to properly straighten my hair it would take the same length. The ceramic barrel gives your curls a great shine too which is a mjor bonus.
I would use this maybe once a fortnight so it gets a lot of use. I've had it since the end of the summer, so six months and have had no major problems yet, other than a burnt ear :) The wand takes 3-5 minutes to cool down and longer to get cold completely, but all depending on how long its been turned on.If your the forgetful type too, it has a cool feature that turns itself off after 60 minutes.
All in all I am quite happy with the purchase. I wanted curly hair and thats exatly what I have. It actually gives me the same look i get in the salon and isnt to difficult to achieve. Money well spent
Summary: Great purchase, would highly recommend it to anybody looking for a cheap good qualty styler. 10/10
