Have you ever seen a photo of me in straight hair? I bet not! Because I like my hair big, poofy & curly. I refuse to ever comb or brush them so they stay unruly forever...just the way I like them. I'm not sure if this obsession is healthy or not but I sure as hell feel powerful when my hair are in this glorious mess.
I seriously don't remember the last time I straightened my hair out (Maybe 6-7 years ago?) so the only time heat touches my hair is when I curl them, the event that happens only a handful of times a year because for Godsake..who has time for hair when there's over the top makeup to do? But I must confess, the few times that I've actually curled my hair for an event, it made the look 100% better. The confidence that good hair instill in you is immeasurable. I truly believe its a very real phenomenon.
Worth mentioning is that Babyliss is pretty good quality, sturdy, pretty in pink but also a tad heavy, time consuming & has a UK plug on it. Imagine the ugliness of that converter!
Well, all is not lost. Enter Remington. Like seriously..there aren't many products I fall flat over. This has to be one. I received it from Remington's PR agency about a month or two ago. Guess how many times I've used it? 5! Beats Babyliss's score hands down.
Reason- Oh my my! This is everything I've wanted in my curler.

Remington Curls Collective* is available from most electrical retailers in NZ for about $130. I just checked online and its available at Briscoes for $78 (40% off) & Harvey Norman for $79 (without any off..Sup Briscoes?)
You legit get 3 curlers in one- 13-25 mm, 19 mm & 32 mm barrel. I love using the medium one (19mm) for my hair, at max setting. They come out as perfect unruly beachy hair.Worth mentioning is that I do spray my hair with a heat protectant before curling (Its this Giovanni heat protectant serum from iHerb these days) and seal the locks with a hair spray after I'm done.
I cannot recommend this hair curler enough. If you're in the market looking for one..give this a shot. Its the best one I've used till date, easy on the pocket too!
