Remington CI95 Pearl Wand
Advantages: So easy to use, and so cheap at just £20
Disadvantages: Be careful not to burn your fingers!
Last year I really tried hard to grow my hair long, it was only shoulder length and it's hard to do anything nice with it when you go out when it is so short! I have now got a really nice length hair and I'm making the most of it by doing lots of stuff with it! My favourite way to wear my hair at the moment is down, with lots of curls! I invested in this curling wand around 6 months ago, and I now use it most days to create my wavy style.
I paid £20 on Amazon for this curling wand, and it was the best £20 I've spent! It is worth every penny, it is so cheap for such a good quality styling product. In the box you also get a free heat glove to wear whilst you are using the curling wand, I would advise to wear this the first few times you use it if you are not used to using a curling wand. I had never really used one before and I burnt my fingers a few times, these heat up to 210 degrees! Once you know how to hold it properly and are used to them, you don't need the glove, I don't anymore. It also comes with a heat proof ouch to store your wand in when you are not using it, which is handy to keep it safe.
To use this wand you simply turn it on, and you can alter the temperature by pressing the plus button for it to go hotter, and the minus button to go cooler. The temperature of this wand can be set between 130 - 210 degrees. You can start off with the lower temperature and heat it up a bit more until you feel the temperature is hot enough to set your hair. It depends on what type of hair you have, if you have very thick hair I think the temperature would need to be quite high to set your curls and keep them in. My hair is very fine and I only have it at 150 degrees and this is perfect. My curls stay in all day perfectly, and even in the morning when I wake up, my curls are still in. My hair is a mess, but they definitely don't drop out!
This wand is black, and the buttons are white. It looks so sleek and stylish, and is so lightweight, it is not heavy in your hands at all, which is great because you can be holding it a while if you are making lots of curls in your hair.
It takes a little while to get the hang of a curling wand if you haven't used one before. All you do is get a section of your hair, and wind it round the wand, and hold it there for around 10 seconds and then let go. It curls your hair so quickly, and it is a really neat and tight curl. You can make your hair wavy by winding it round the wand loosely, or you can have lots of curls, and ringlets by wrapping your hair around tighter. I usually do loose curls in the bottom half of my hair and if you run your fingers through the curls you can make it look so natural. I don't even use hairspray to keep my curls in, it stays in naturally all day. If I am going out at night, I do my whole hair in curls, but it does take rather a long time! Usually around 40 minutes as you have to section all your hair, you can't wrap a large amount of your hair around the wand or it just doesn't work as well. You are better doing less hair, and getting a better curl, which will last all night.
This wand is supposed to be 15 times more ceramic than most curling wands which is why you get a nice curl, as more heat gets to your hair. I haven't used any other curling wand, so I'm not sure if this is any better or not!
As this wand gets so hot, you should make sure you use a heat protection spray to protect your hair from the heat. This wand comes with a 3 year guarantee, and worldwide voltage so you can use it no problem on holiday. It also has a handy 3 metre cord, and will automatically shut off after 60 minutes of use, so you don't need to worry if you have gone out and can't remember if you have turned it off or not!
I would recommend this curling wand, it is worth every penny I paid for it. It is lightweight, sleek and stylish, gives great curls, and is so easy to use. If you are looking to purchase one, definitely give this one a go!
Summary: A great curling wand
