It’s scientifically proven that I can’t turn down the chance to test out new hair-related goodies. Whether it’s a new shampoo or a new hair tool, I just need to get my greedy little hands on it. So of course, I couldn’t say “No” to the change to test out the Remington T|Studio Pink Silk Oval Wand.
My hair is naturally curly, but I’m an insane person, so I blow dry it straight and then physically curl it myself on a regular basis. Like I said, I’m insane. And while I love my Sultra, it can be hard to get a loose wave rather than a more defined curl with that specific tool, so I was looking forward to trying a new brand and barrel shape.
With my excitement came a bit of nervous curiosity. Would the oval barrel make my hair look kinky? Would a more affordable brand work as well as my Sultra? Side note: I’m a marketer’s dream – I assume that the more expensive an item, the better it is. So with excited jitters in my belly, I heated up the wand and started wanding my little heart out.
I’ll jump to the chase here – I was more than pleasantly surprised with the end result. I was able to achieve a loose wave by keeping the wand on a lower heat (around 320 degrees) or a more defined curl by turning up the heat (around 360 degrees). And while the waves/curls did fall a bit more throughout the day than when I use my Sultra, they were still intact and just as lovely at the end of the day. They even held up through a good night’s sleep!
For $29.99, this bad boy is a steal. So if you’re in the market for a curling wand (or even if you aren’t), you should scoot your caboose to Target and snag one for yourself. And with that, I’ll leave you with some product features and gratuitous pictures of myself:
- Oval Waving Wand with Silk Ceramic Technology
- 410⁰F Digital salon high heat
- Digital Displays/Controls for precise temperature control
- Includes heat resistant glove for safe and easy styling
- 30 second heat up and 60 minute auto shut off
- 4 year warranty
Have you ever tried a curling wand before?
