Remington Curling Wand

T-Studio Ceramic PEARL Professional Curling Wand

Remington-Curling-Wand

I haven’t used many hair curling tools in the past, simply because they are too difficult for me. I never really understood the straightener/flat iron method regardless of watching many tutorials. The traditional curling hair with the clip seems too much work for me with all the twisting and rolling. So I’ve always left my hair straight as it is, until I came across this CURLING WAND!

For those of you don’t know how a clipless curling wand, check out this video!

You basically just have to wrap your hair around the curling wand.

I love the wavy curls that this curling wand gives me!

I don’t usually part my hair to side, just curious of how it would look πŸ˜€

That’s the curling wand and the heat protective glove (one hand only).Β Photo 14-2-17 上午11 02 44

The highest temperature setting is 410’c. I know this sounds extremely hot but I found that the wand needs to be heated up that much for the best result. The first time when I tried curling my hair, I thought around 200’c would be enough and went for that. My hair went straight back down within 30 minutes. 😦

The temperature really makes a difference. Today I curled my hair with 410 degrees of heat and the curl lasted me 8 hours until I showered.

Conclusion

The curling wand is almost perfect.

Except that you have to wear the glove in order to avoid burning your fingers.

I tried doing it without the glove for a few seconds then I failed…

The downside is that it is difficult to feel and grab your hair when wearing the glove. Of course, I’ve seen many people doing it with their bare hands, it takes practice. πŸ™‚

I highly recommend a curling wand for those who seek the easiest tool to use!

Batiste dry shampoo

Awhile ago I bought my first ever dry shampoo and by now I’ve used it a couple of times. I got it from Woolworths for $7.99aud.

It almost instantly refreshed my second day hair! This is such a life saver when you are in hurry, or if you want to take a break between shampoos. I decided to give this a try because I’ve recently dyed my hair and want to maintain the color.

The good things
Nice smell
Long lasting effect (7-8 hours until another application is required)
Affordable price

The downsides…
I think this dry shampoo slightly whitens our hair if you spray a good amount. You can clearly see that my hair color changed in the photo.

I would go at most two days without shampoo with this dry shampoo because I do not use this as a regular replacement of washing my hair πŸ™‚

Hello everyone! I’ve decided to write about this hair dye on my first post, since it’s the most recent thing that I did. I got this from Priceline (a drugstore in Australia) for $9AUD, it’s basically the cheapest hair dye I could find from there.

The result…

Although it didn’t come out like the box color, I am quite pleased with the final result! At first, I was expecting a color with some purple tone in it. Be aware that I took this photo right under my lamp, in natural lighting this is not what the hair looks like. It’s more of a brown with a hint of red, especially after a few washes of shampoo.

Despite having extremely thin hair (yet long), one box of this hair dye was barely enough for me. So if you have normal to thick hair, you would definitely need more than one. The color started to turn almost as soon as I applied the hair dye, I left it on for a good 40-45 minutes before rinsing off. Overall, I would give this hair dye 4/5!Β For those of you that live outside of Australia, you probably can get this for even cheaper. I may or may not purchase this next time because I always want to try new things πŸ™‚
