First time trying out a curling wand** — I like it, though I might try a larger barrel next. This is how my naturally wavy-curly hair aspires to curl, but this is WAY more defined. I’ve had the same Revlon curling iron for years…I bought it maybe 8-9 years ago? It still works great, though the curling irons I have looked at recently are more advanced. This one has a digital readout for the temperature, plus an easy way to lock the temp on. This is handy because I was constantly hitting the buttons while wrapping my hair on the iron. And something I need in any heat device? Auto shut off!!
This curling wand came with a heat-resistant glove. It’s not heat proof, but it definitely helped to hold the end of the hair on the wand without directly burning my fingers.
I decided to try a smaller barrel first so I could test out smaller curls. The barrel size is tapered and is 1/2″ – 1″, perfect for making nice spiral curls. If / when I try a long, non-tapered barrel and a larger tapered barrel, I’ll be sure to post the results!
