I am going to be honest and say I am not a hair person. Though I try to keep my hair healthy and manageable, I don’t often do anything with it. It usually goes up in a pony or bun and I don’t give it a second thought. There are those rare occasions, like this weekend, where I do want to do something a little different. That’s where this beautiful, multi-wand hair tool comes in handy. This is the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Curling wand**. It comes with an assortment of 8 different sizes and shapes to give you unique curls, as well as a glove, carrying case a little holder/stand and the handle.
I have to say, upon first seeing this, I really laughed. It looks inappropriate if you don’t know what it is. But, beyond it’s look, there are some really handy features. I haven’t used a clip-less curler before so I comparing apples and oranges here, but I have never had so many barrel options or such an instant heat up time or a digital display before with any hair tool. These features make this wand so easy to use and convenient. Now that I have used a clip-less wand, I don’t think I will go back. My hair doesn’t get caught on anything, it looks and feels shinier and it heats up mega quick.
Before use, I applied a heat protector. I love the KQC Thermal Shine spray as a heat protectant because it also gives my hair some extra shine without making it greasy or oily. To start, I picked out a barrel and went for the funkiest one: the pearl. When I first plugged it in I noticed it flashes blue to signify it is off. Once you turn it on and pick your preferred temperature, the screen stays blue and shows you the temperature as it heats up. When it is ready, the screen goes green and the whole process takes under 60 seconds (I actually timed it). Am I the only one really impressed by all that? I was so excited. It was a little difficult to lock the barrel into place but I was eventually able to do so and I am sure it will get easier with time.

I had second day hair with no product in it other than the heat protectant. My hair does tend to have a hard time holding curl since it is so heavy but I think this did a fantastic job. I found the tool pretty easy to figure out. I held the barrel upward and gently wrapped the hair around the barrel to the tip. Since I am no hair expert, I wasn’t really sure how long I should hold the curl in place. I was a little paranoid about holding the hair there too long since seeing that horrifying viral video, so my curls were not overly consistent. I had to recurl a few pieces where I had too much hair and not enough time on the barrel. I prefer the lion mane type of messy curls and I felt that this barrel did the job very well.
Once I took each 2 or so inch strand of hair around the barrel, I did a little bit of fluffing and sprayed this Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Volume hair spray all over for some extra hold. Thankfully, Roxy had a large can of this since the travel sized one I was using ran out. I love having my hair curled and with this, I think I will be doing it more often. It isn’t exactly quick, but for something different, it is a lot of fun.
