Last night I finally decided to try my wand out.
I bought the Remington T Studio 1"-1 1/2" curling wand. It was about $30 at Target. There were two size options, 1/2"-1" and the one I got, the 1" - 1 1/2" I figured with my longer hair I wanted Bigger curls that would fall into waves as the day went on. I do want to get the smaller one to see how tighter curls would look.
My hair before was puffy and frizzy from being in a pony tail and bun all day.
A few things to note about the wand: it goes up to 410 degrees and has a digital display
What I didn't like about the wand was that my hair kept slipping from the larger end of the wand and the curl would start at the middle of the wand and I wouldn't have enough space to wrap all my hair around the wand. Also there is a "stand" in the top of the handle that my hair kelp snagging on which would cause tangles as I took my hair off the wand. I would eliminate this part all together because it didn't do much for helping the wand stay up. I would have also appreciated a longer cord, i found that one side of my head was harder to do because the wand didn't reach like I needed it to.
But at the end I do like the wand, I got the hang of it after the first layer of hair and the curls were very nice. I was able to take bigger sections of hair than i do with my 1" Hot Tools curling iron, so the process was much faster. It took me about 20-30 mins to do all my hair.
I really do like the result, and this will probably become my go to tool when i want to do something with my hair, it was so quick and easy, even with its negative points it puts out a nice curl, so I'm all for it. The curls did hold up well over night and I'm sure will fall well throughout the day.
