I suck at curling my hair

I absolutely love the way my hair looks when it’s been curled, I wear it natural or straightened so often it’s nice to switch it up and go for something a little bit more glamorous. However…I SUCK at curling my own hair! I used to try to do it using my straighteners but all I would end up with was all of my hair forming one very unattractive curl rather than the texture and waves I craved.

Luckily for me, I think I’ve found a tool that makes it super easy for me to achieve the curls that I have always craved. As you can see above, the curls I was able to create are super pretty and I really love the effect I managed to get. The ceramic barrel comes with a brush, so once you’ve wrapped your hair around the barrel you just hold the brush against it and wait for the heat to work its magic.

Using the InStyler MAX

I went into using this cold because I really wanted to see how easy it would be for a total curling newbie to use. To be honest, my first couple of tries were a total fail but once I discovered that the best way to use the tool was to wrap my hair around the barrel then use the brush to clamp it in place and hold it for 10-15 seconds it was really easy and took me no time to get the curls I had always dreamed of!

Final thoughts

I’ll definitely be using this lots in the future, especially as the festive season is coming up and I have a few parties to attend! If you’re looking for a super easy to use, non-fiddly, styling tool to treat yourself to (perhaps as an early Christmas present??) then I really recommend taking a look at the InStyler MAX and giving it a go. I mean, if I can figure it out I’m sure you can too!
