thoughts of a first time iron curling hair user ...

I received this as a token months ago but never got around to using it. I never saw myself as the type to curl my hair just to go somewhere. However, I have become bored lately with how I look so I decided to test it out.


Initial thoughts: What the heck am I doing? Am I doing this right? Oh no, was I supposed to let that blue light thing go steady for. Oh, I better read the manual.

So there. Ladies, read the manual first. Don't assume that you can just work on these things because when you go wrong with it, you really go wrong with it. Trust me, you don't wanna go wrong with this I've read horror stories of hair just falling off because apparently, the person managed to burn her hair off her head. YIKES!

Thankfully, this did not happen to me though there was a moment where I smelled a little burnt hair but nothing damaging. So this was me on my 3rd attempt at curling my hair on my own. I did not dare to take photos the 1st and 2nd time because I was too scared that I would burn my hair off. On the 3rd time though, I felt pretty confident about using the product because it was actually fairly easy to use.


It was actually at this point that I decided to write about this because I wanted to share with you guys how easy it is to use. Mind you, this is not a product review or a paid review. I was just really happy about the compliments I would get whenever I used this thing.

So this is how it all turned out. My 3 attempts on 3 different occasions of using the Remington Spiral Curl Iron.




I think I'm getting pretty good at it now. Earlier this morning, I was actually able to do my hair in less than 10 minutes. Yey me. So for those who may be like me and don't want to use those curling things because you worry that it may be too complicated. this one isn't. It really isn't I promise. :)

Final thoughts: Why did I only learn to do this just now?!?!?!

  6. I've been using a curling iron since I was 10. I have never even thought about the fact that learning to use one is a bit daunting. If I were learning today I can imagine that I would be on youtube looking for tutorials.

  11. I got pretty addicted to my curling iron as well. It was crazy, I didn't mind spending 30 minutes on my hair just to curl it. But then, my laziness started to kick in and I got tired of doing it for some time. Now I just curl my hair when I feel like it. Haha.
