Curling un-curlable hair
Hi, my name is Claire, I'm 24 and a quarter years old and this week I learned how to curl my hair *waves*
I've experimented with all kinds of wands, products and tools, but my hair is just the sort that falls out within 10 minutes. Y'know the type, really flyaway, thin but lots of it? A proper nightmare.
I owe all of my curling success to HQHair.
Since I've had my ombre and have gradually gone lighter, my locks have been in drastic need of TLC, and I LOVE this Andrew Barton hair mask once a week. I have found that giving it a little shape with my trusty BaByliss Big Hair brush works wonders too - the equivalent of a salon blow dry I just can't seem to manage with a dryer and a brush on my own.
When HQHair got in touch to see if I'd like to trial any of their products, I went straight to the haircare section and looked at their Glamoriser tools. I'm usually quite scared of ranges like this - so much choice! - but in the end I read some reviews and chose to trial the Glamoriser Professional Digital Auto-Curler (phew!) which, it turns out, is a pretty high tech piece of kit.
It works in a similar way to the BaByliss Big Hair by doing the hard work for you with the rotating wand section. It took just 15 minutes to curl all my hair with this, just taking sections and holding them in the wand's grip before pressing an arrow, curling my hair up and holding for a few seconds.
Obviously it's blimming hot so there's no getting away from the odd near miss if you're anywhere as cack-handed as me, but with the smooth barrel and long handle it's relatively light and easy to manoeuvre.
All in all, I was really impressed. It left me with natural, bouncy waves all day and that is definitely a first for me and my hair history. If you're no fuss and in a hurry (early starts anyone?), considering this wand might just be the perfect investment.
