Now that I have hair extensions I can no longer wear my hair straight because they're so long I'd look like Cousin It. Naturally, the hair is wavy and I normally embrace it, but occasionally I'll blow dry it and enhance the voluminous blow out with waves made by a curling iron. As of late, I've been using a new styling tool that I have to tell you about – the Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Styling Wand $29.99. Instead of having a clamp this curling iron is just the wand. I wrap a strand of my hair around it, hold for a second and just let it go. It's quick and easy. I learned (after half of my head was already curled) that if you use bigger sections of hair, the curls will come out bigger and look more like waves (which is what I was going for). If you want tighter curls, use smaller sections of hair around the iron. I like the no clamp style because I'm a fool with a curling iron and often get a clamp mark.
Speaking of being a clutz with a curling iron, this iron comes with a heat-proof glove so you can wear it on the hand that you're wrapping the hair around it with so you don't accidentally burn yourself. I ignored the glove thinking I had it under wraps. And I did. I didn't burn my hand at all, but I did singe my neck! Yes, I got a hickie from the curling iron, never fail. I need a heat-proof scarf and possibly head band! I'm the worst at doing my own hair. I'll admit it!
