I am feeling a bit broken hearted upon hearing the news of what is happening about the world. As a parent, I try my best to shelter my child from these type of news and don't know how to explain to him why these bad things happen. I know there's nothing I can do to change how these people behave but hope that if we all have actions with good intentions to everyone that it will spread and end these type of senseless violence.
On a totally different note, I wanted to share my opinion of the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curler. I was reached out by Irresistible Me to try the wand and I was hesitant at first since I never talk about much beauty on the blog. Then I thought that although I don't talk about it it doesn't mean I don't care about how my hair looks. When I get dressed for work, I do make sure that I am presentable not only in my clothes but me in general.
All my life, my hair has been a pain because: 1. I've had pesky grey hair since high school, 2. my hair is very fine and thin and 3. my hair never holds any hair styles I do. Because of these things, I have kept my hair do pretty low maintenance. My hair routine consisted of washing hair or dry shampoo and a straightener. Some days I would use a curling iron but the curls would be done by lunch time.
As the name suggests, this wand has 8 different type of barrel to create different curls from ringlets to beach waves. The smaller the barrel, the tighter the curls. They even have a sort of cone shaped wand that gives you loose and tight curl in one.
I have to tell you a funny story about what happened with my wand. I was so excited and didn't read the instructions and pretty much just picked a wand and plug it in and played with it. I selected the pearl barrel because it was just so different and it created a very curly hair style which did not suit my face. Then I could not for the life of me figure out how to take out the barrel. I exchanged emails with Blair at Irresistible Me and she was very nice and sent me videos but it did not work. She sent me a prepaid postage to send back and was going to send me a new curler for review.
As a last resort, I took it to my hair stylish and she pulls the barrel right out of the wand! Yup, I told you I am hair tool challenged. Since then I have figured out how easy it is to interchange the barrels.
I have never used a wand before and it took a little getting used to. The kit also comes with a glove for the hand that is wrapping the hair around the wand. I highly recommend using it since the barrel does get hot. Speaking of temperature the wand heats up very quickly and goes up to 450F, I have been using it at 370F and it seems to work well.
My favorite size so far is the 25MM which gives a loose curl effect that I prefer. I added some styling balm and my curl lasted the whole day! It actually retained the curls the next day and I use the wand to freshen some of the curls.
So would I recommend the curler, yes! I love the idea of having so many options and how easy it is to use. If you have any questions about it, please let me know. I think that wand would make a great Christmas gift. Thank you Irresistible Me for introducing me to a great hair tool.
