A couple of months back I was invited to one of the best blogger events I have ever been too by the lovely people at Remington. The event was to launch the newest collection of hair tools called Silk. It was held in a suite at The Covent Garden Hotel. The team from Remington were there along with Chris Appleton who is Remington's stylist. I was quite overwhelmed by the whole experience to be honest! I got to meet one of my favourite bloggers, the lovely Jane from British Beauty Blogger. I've looked up to Jane since starting my blog so I was a bit "star struck" to meet her. A couple of 'top bloggers' popped by but I was having my hair Beyoncefied by Chris so didn't say hi, (I probably wouldn't have had the guts anyway!) The event was brilliant and really personal, it's great to meet the team behind a brand you are a fan of. The chance to learn one on one about the Silk collection too was fab. The Silk collection is designed for people who want to look after there hair but also want results that last. That sums me up!
*ends ramble and gets on with the review*
My hair is naturally wavy but not in a good way, I wouldn't be able to wash it and go as it needs of taming or styling to make the waves look nice! I was intrigued by the idea of the Remington Silk Waving Wand as I have never used a wand with this type of barrel before. I think it looks professional but still simple enough for anyone to pick up and use. I like the pearl effect of the barrel and the contrasting red colour of the handle. The wand has a power button and then two buttons to change temperature. The power lead is really long, which is a bonus as there is nothing worse than not being able to reach the mirror! One thing I worry about with hair tools is them being able to turn on by themselves, the Remington Waving Wand has a lock system, so if it is plugged in it won't turn on unless you press the power button, it even has a little lock symbol on the screen so you know it won't turn on.
The fact you can change the temperature is great. When I need too I can turn it down to 160 to look after my hair a bit more and when I want long lasting waves I can set it to 230. It is the easiest styling tool I have ever used and gives me brilliant results. Because of my natural hair type, I can style my hair with this in five minutes and be ready to go, it adds a lot of definition and defrizzes my hair due to the silk that is infused into the barrel. To style my hair I wrap different sized sections around the barrel and hold for about 10 seconds, it gives me lovely and natural looking waves that looks like I have put a lot of effort into them. I have also been impressed with how long lasting the waves are, normal curls drop out within a matter of hours but I think because the waves are more natural they last until my next hair wash.
The Remington Silk Waving Wand * costs £34.99, which I think is well worth the money. If you are looking for an easy to use hair tool that won't take more than 10 minutes of your time to get gorgeous hair then you know where to go! Add it to those Christmas wish lists ladies!
