Now I’m no beauty blogger but what I am is a mummy who struggles with her appearance. My children always look lovely and well presented – until they cover themselves in mud that is – me on the other hand; I just about get myself dressed some days. Make up? Not a chance day to day but one thing I try to make an effort with is my hair. At the moment it’s a little longer than usual which means it’s more often than not being chucked back in a ponytail or up in the dreaded mum-bun. So when the opportunity came up to review the Xtava Satin Waves 5 in 1 Curling Wand I immediately volunteered. Who doesn’t want lovely tussled hair?!
I was immediately struck by the box which had a lovely modern design on in one of my favourite colour palettes. Open that layer and you’re faced with a lovely sleek black presentation box, then open that layer again and you have a travel bag which contains the curling wand and attachments.
With 5 interchangable barrels, there is a size and type for everyones inner stylist. The wand also comes with 9 temperature settings from 90C to 210C, and it even comes with a 60 minute auto sleep mode function for piece of mind to those people like me who ALWAYS thinks that they’ve something plugged in and on when they leave the house! I loved the travel case as a way to keep all the different bits together in one place and the heat protection glove was great seeing as I have a tendancy to be a little clumsy with heated appliances!
I currently use my hair straighteners to curl my hair which I thought were doing a pretty ok job until I started to use these. Wow, what a difference! After a bit of a false start where I had to figure out where to best hold my hair in the curlers I was off. It takes about 10 minutes to do my whole head but once done, with a little bit of styling clay the loose curls stay in all day.
I’ve haven’t tried the other wands yet, mainly because I have straight hair with a fringe so if I go for the proper curled look I end up looking like an 80’s throwback with a poodle perm and straight fringe….not a good look! Therefore for now I’ve stayed with the tusseled look but I’m looking forward to playing around with the other attachments to see what I can do with them. I may need to hit up YouTube for some tutorial videos!
The Xtava Satin Waves Curling Wand is currently on sale on Amazon for £21.99, reduced from £45.99.
I loved this curling wand. Speaking as someone who isn’t the best when it comes to things like these, I thought they were stylish and easy to use with a long lasting result. Great value for money, I am more than happy to be retiring my straighteners for something far better to curl my hair with.
