I seriously envy anyone with naturally wavy/curly hair, it's no secret how much i love curls and i have gained quite an impressive collection of wavers, rollers and curling wand in an attempt to achieve easy, effortless curls. The latest addition to my curling wand family is the Remington Silk Waving Wand and i honestly don't know what i did without it before.
I picked up the Remington Silk Waving Wand from a car boot sale for about £4; it was a total whim, i didn't even know if it would work let alone if it was any good but it was so different to any curling wand that i already owned that i decided to pick it up and try it out anyways.
Unlike most conical/curling wands that have rounded barrel this waving wand has more of a square shaped barrel, that's long and thin. It's so easy to use and you can alter the temperature to suit your own needs, i have quite thick hair so i usually put it quite high (with heat protection, of course) but it curls my hair so easily - i can have my entire head of hair curled within about 20 minutes.
Depending on how much hair and how tight you wrap it around the barrel depends on how tight or loose the wave will be. I wrap thick pieces of hair around the wand quite tightly which gives me tighter curls - when I'm getting ready, i always do my hair first so that the tighter curls can start to drop whilst I'm doing my make up and then i go back in and style it afterwards. Obviously, this is just how i choose to do it - you can alter and personalise the method to your own liking but i find that works best for me.
I absolutely love how this makes my hair look; it's so quick and easy to use and it gives me amazing results every time. This normally retails for £25.99 which is generally quite affordable anyways and i genuinely think it's worth every penny if not more. Out of all the curling hair tools i own this is the one i reach for the most as it's the one that gives me that best results. Not bad for a car boot sale find, eh!
Have you tried the Remington Silk Waving Wand? What curling hair tools do you use?
