Remington C195 Pearl Wand Review

 

 


 




This wand was given to me as a present by my mum last year as a Christmas present. You can buy these for around £25 I think. I don't have the box, sorry! It comes with a heat resistant glove and a heat protective bag. The wand takes 30 seconds to heat up and can go to a maximum heat of 210°C . It is made of pearl ceramic which prevents snagging of the hair and gives a sleeker look. I love the fact that it has an auto-switch off time of 60 minutes; not that I leave things plugged in but its a nice feature to have incase I ever forget!

I had borrowed a wand from my friend and really wanted my own to give me some loose bouncy curls.  So thank you to my mamma for the gift!  My hair is naturally curly but sometimes I think it needs a little bit of a tidy up with this wand just to give the frizzy bits a little more structure.

Wands can be a little tricky to use at first but after a few test runs they are easy peasy! I gave this to a friend to use and she burnt her ear, so be careful when you use these the first few times! The heat protective glove doesn't actually protect against the heat completely so be careful with that too. The glove keeps you from burning your skin but you can still feel the heat from the wand through the material. If you lose the gloves, like I sometimes do then don't attempt to go bare handed! There is an art to using these but everyone does it differently, just have a go when you have some free time and you'll be fine. Basically, you just grab a portion of hair and wind it around the wand for the desired length of time then unwind the hair! A smaller section of hair gives tighter curls compared to a larger section of hair.

This wand heats up fast and the hair only needs to be in place for maybe 5-10 seconds to set the curl, I think that is pretty fast! If you leave the hair on the wand for a shorter length of time it gives soft waves, and a longer amount of time gives perfect curls.

If you like curling your hair I would recommend this because it leaves you with lovely curls, loose or tight, and gives you much more flexibility than regular curling tongs. Like I said, it might take a few tries to get your technique down but it'll be worth it in the end!

  2. Ah I use the double-barrelled version of this one and it's perfect! Totally know what you mean about the gloves - they really don't protect from all the heat, but I'd certainly never try it bare-handed! This curls your hair really nicely, might have to grab one myself now! xx
