These are HEAVEN SENT for long hair! I have hair that nearly reaches my bum, and it takes so long to curl I had all but given up. I find it so hard to curl my hair. I literally can’t be bothered. All the sectioning and scrunching and spraying. Nah, I’ll just straighten it or stick it up in a messy bun. This curling wand has completely changed me! Yes, first attempt I did section my hair and take all the care in the world. It worked so quickly and easily and my hair didn’t feel damaged at all. So, I got cocky. Second time I used it I wanted larger, barrel curls for everyday. Didn’t section my hair or scrunch or any of that nonsense and my hair looked like I’d stepped onto that beach they all seem to live on in the Hollister adverts. Perfect beach tousled stresses with basically no effort!
