I am totally digging my new curling wand! I showed it in my first post, and I got it for a cool $9.98 at Target because it is a Limited Edition product. It has a temperature dial with 30 heat settings, and also came with a handy dandy glove to somewhat protect from the heat of the curling iron. On the Target website, the closest curling wand I could find was this one:
Currently $19.99 on the website
I have tried it a total of three times: twice on my own hair, and once on my lovely sister’s!
Here’s what you should know about me hair:
-It’s naturally curly/wavy
-It has always held curl extremely well in the past when using traditional curling irons
-It’s a bit on the frizzy/dry side
Here’s the results of my second time curling my hair:
My hair before I curled it. This is my hair air-dried after I took a shower, and there is no product in it.

It took about 20 minutes to curl, and it did take a bit longer to do the right side than the left side due to the nature of how I held the curling iron. However, it is SO EASY to curl hair with this curling wand. I can’t help thinking that it must be somewhat less damaging than a traditional curling iron as well.
I finished off my hair with my favorite hairspray! Garnier Fructis Full Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray
Overall, I am a big fan of the curling wand. It’s a lot faster and less damaging than a regular curling iron, and it’s very affordable. Even my slept-on, second day hair was still bouncy and full of curl. With a few touch ups, it looked just as good as the first day!
And now onto my sister’s experience:
Here’s what you should know about her hair:
-It is very straight with a slight wave (she had had it in a ponytail prior to the before pictures)
-After curling her hair with a traditional curling iron, it will hold a curl for a few hours, but will eventually lose it’s curl and shape
-It is normal to oily hair
A little half-n-half action!
I was extremely impressed with how well the wand worked with her hair! With a little of the Garnier hairspray, the curls lasted all day. After a good night’s rest, you could tell it was slept on, but the curls maintained their original vigor and it looked great in a ponytail (her words)!
I highly recommend picking up the Remington Ceramic Curling Wand if you’re looking for easy curls that last well into the second day!
