My hair has a life of its own, doing whatever it pleases. Styling it is an uphill struggle as its preferred style is dragged through a hedge backwards.
So when I was offered the opportunity to review the Xtiva Twist Curling Wand, I said yes, hey anything’s worth a try.
I wasn’t expecting the rather glamorous box that arrived, complete with the blogger fave, rose gold.
It’s matt black and looks very professional. So far so good. But how does it do on rebellious hair?
Well, according to the user guide I need about 160° to curl my hair – you literally set the temp you want with these handy buttons.
Now, vitally and not included in the user guide is this glove. Use the glove and avoid burnt fingers! I did not. Use me as a lesson.
Now I have limited patience, especially with technology, but this heats up nice and quick. Word to the wise – do your make up after as your face gets quite hot with this wand.
It’s super easy to use but unfortunately my hair decided not to play ball and the curls dropped out fast. But that’s my hair for you. I also tested this on my sister’s thick hair and they held beautifully. She refused to let me take any photos and wouldn’t accept bribes.
I really think this is a clever tool with its easy to use buttons, the glove that stops your hand from burning (I’ve never seen this included in the box before and my past is littered with curlers of all kinds).
It doesn’t take hours to heat and on better behaved hair creates gorgeous curls. If my sister lets me curl her hair again I will get some Insta pics for you.
And now – Win the xtava Twist Curling Wand
