Natural Curls vs Fake Curls + Giveaway

When it comes to my hair I don’t do an awful lot with it, as it’s naturally curly I usually just leave it down, if I’m going out out I’ll straighten it and I often put a small bun on top of my head with the top section of my hair. Because I have curly hair I’ve never had my hair curled, sound silly right? Why would I curl curly hair? Well, I’ve always wanted to see the difference between my natural curls and fake curls. So I was excited when I received the Xtava Twist Curling Wand so I could finally see the difference.
The curling wand came in a cute patterned box with a heat proof glove and case. The curler barrel is ceramic tourmaline coated. You are able to adjust the temperature settings between 130 to 210 degrees celsius. The width of the barrel is quite thick so you end up with a loose curl which I personally love, this isn’t something I’m able to achieve with my natural hair as they are more tight ringlets.
Using the curler was super easy and didn’t take me as long as I thought it would. My hair is very thick so I straightened it the day before which took some thickness and frizz out. I’m very happy with the way it turned out, I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it and it gives me another way to style my hair for nights out! After sleeping on it I was surprised to see the curls were still intact and I even left them as they were to go to work.

    I have curly/wavy hair too so I’ve never used a curling wand either. This one looks fab and I love loose curls! I love having the temperature options on heat appliances too so you can decide yourself. Great post!
