Happy Friday y’all!
There are endless curling wands out there and I’ve been wanting to buy one. There are two things that have held me back:
- The ones I end up “needing” price in the hundreds of dollars.
- I don’t feel they are safe. I can’t tell you how many people I know that are constantly burning their arms because of their wand.
So I’ve been waiting to find something from a good brand that’s affordable, and safe.
After Silvia’s insistence that I HAD to check out the Ipsy Offer of that day; I quickly pressed the pink BUY button. How could I pass up a Hot Tools Insta-Curl EZ Styler for only $24 US? When the regular price is $55 USD. You don’t pass it up. You buy it!
The selling point for me was the split barrel and the protective tip on the head of the wand. Could I have found my perfect curling iron? … let’s find out.
- Hair Type: curly, frizzy, and a lot of hair.
- Length: Long. Down to my waist.
Above is my hair in it’s natural state after lots, and lots of product. And as you could see, my hair lives by it’s own motto: YOLO, I do what I want.
It took about 30-40 seconds for the wand to heat up, enough time for me to set in some heat protector on my hair.
The directions: Section your hair off, and slide the section of hair between the plates to the bottom of the barrel before rotating iron continuously to create a quick, easy curl. Easy enough, and you know it really was that easy. Within seconds I had accomplished a few curls.
The one complaint I have about the wand is that my crazy hair, don’t care, gets stuck on the protective tip at the end. Be careful when you’re letting out your hair.
I give this wand a solid 4 Nerd Glasses out of 5. Great price, from a well known brand, and a product that has the features I’ve been looking for.
