My mother told me that I have a very curly hair when I was born. Growing up I wanted my hair to be straight but I can’t do anything about it since I have natural curls. When I graduated college I started having my hair straighten with use of relaxer or chemicals that can straighten the hair for a period of time. I usually have it every 6 to 12 months back in Philippines. Then I bought hair iron to use when I wanted to have my hair more straight. Right now I still have natural curls but it is more of straight. And since I have very fine, thin hair texture, you will see that I don’t have the volume or hair body. So what I do is always have my hair in a bun or pony tail. I can’t let it down as it really looks flat and just so blah.
A friend suggested that I need to curl my hair if I want to let it down and don’t want it just straight. I don’t have curling iron and so it was put off for some time until I have the opportunity to test out a styling tool product from Flat Iron Experts. They have sample products that I was able to avail and it got me really excited. This will be the answer to my tresses problem and how to style it. I received the Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron. Per the salon owner that I frequented to have my hair done, Babyliss products are among the finest styling products as it offers a lot of benefits for the hair such as it retains moisture, causes less damage to hair cuticle, neutralizes odor, and prevents static electricity. She uses mostly Babyliss styling products in her salon so I am very confident of what I got for review.
I received the above products for free and I tested the curling iron on a Sunday before going to church. I used first the thermal shine that Flat Iron Experts sent me before using the curling iron to prevent damage from my hair. Below is the before picture, when I let my hair down from having a pony tail. Very flat and no body at all.
Since it will be my first time to use a curling iron, I checked out youtube how to’s at first and also the recommendation from the Flat Iron Experts’ site for proper usage of the styling tool. I thought it is difficult but with an amazing tool like the Babyliss Pro tourmaline curling iron, curling my hair was a breeze. Below is the result of my first curling attempt. I just made a soft big curls and start playing the style afterwards.
I would say that it really works wonder to my hairstyle afterwards. I like that it is easy to use. The settings is very understandable and I used the setting for 5-10 as I have fine hair and the hotness is just perfect for me. The rubberized handle and tip of the barrel made it easy for me to roll and curl my hair. The after effect of the tourmaline/ceramic iron is very fine and leaves my hair glossy. I am so happy that I have another beauty and styling buddy with Babyliss curling iron. My husband approved of the style I just made to my hair that day.
