I don’t have any hair curlers, well I didn’t till this one came along. Actually that’s a lie, I have an extremely thin barrelled curler which unsurprisingly doesn’t get much use! That doesn’t mean I’ve gone this long without curling my hair, I do, but with a straightner and not a curler. I realised that to get the soft waves I craved, my straightner was not good enough so I decided to purchase this BaByliss Waving Wand. I had heard some amazing things about it and at the time (around the end of December) it was on offer in Boots from £30.63 to £20.63. I happened to have enough advantage card points so of course I bought it. Bargain!
What I love about it:
Well quite a lot actually! I really like how it has several temperature heat setting so I can use the lowest temperature and not feel to guilty about ruining my hair. I really like how quickly it heats up and how quickly the curls form so I don’t need to leave my hair wrapped around the barrel for too long. I don’t know if it’s just my hair, because my hair does usually hold in curls, but I find that I don’t need to use hairspray to keep the curls in all day, they just last.
What I DON’T love:
I’m happy to the list here isn’t long. I don’t love the fact that sometimes the curls are too tight and springy and are more ringlet curls rather than waves. But I guess the more I experiment with the wand, the technique of creating the perfect waves will come to me. After all, practise makes perfect right? But on a positive note, after brushing the curls down a little, the ringlet nature of it goes away and your left with pretty curls.
Overall, I’m really happy that I got this wand/curler! I think it was a wise investment of advantage card points and even if I didn’t have those points I would have bought the curler/wand as it was a good deal. I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures of myself after using the waving wand.
