If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that when it comes to hair, I like messy, textured, undone hair – I hate anything too neat, which is why you rarely see products or devices aimed at smoothing or straightening, as I like big, messy hair! The Remington Curl Revolution is a godsend if you’re like me, as it’s designed to help you achieve that “beach waves” look that’s actually surprisingly tricky to achieve with other tools – you normally have to tong the whole head of hair before easing each curl out so that is loosens up, a process that is time-consuming and quite faffy.
The Remington Curl Revolution takes a bit of getting used to, and the first few times I used it, I got it completely wrong and wrote it off as yet another novelty gadget. When using a device like this, you think you need to wind your hair into it and hold it in position, much in the same way you would with a traditional hair tong.
However, with this, you feed your hair in at an angle, press the rotating button, and the device slowly twirls, gently feeding your hair through as it goes. Once the rotation is complete, your hair falls out of the device on its own, leaving you with a loose, gentle wave. You can do it a couple of times on each piece of hair if you’re after more of a curl, but I find once on each piece is more than enough.
Once you reach your lightbulb moment of how to use the Remington Curl Revolution, suddenly it all makes sense, and doing your whole head takes less than 10 minutes, plus it’s so easy that you don’t even need a mirror, although it is handy to have one as it saves a little bit more time. The device heats up quickly and is easy to use, and it comes with three no-nonsense buttons; one to turn it off and on, one to turn the heat up and the final one to turn the heat down. It also comes with a very pretty, pink storage case.
I absolutely love Remington and I think I’m yet to try something from the range that hasn’t become a firm favourite. They make such easy-to-use products that deliver on their promises, and the Curl Revolution is no exception. It’s a little more expensive than I expected at just under £90, but I believe that is the launch price so if you hold tight for a bit, there are bound to be some deals springing up in time for Christmas. If you’re a fan of beachy waves but hate the feeling of product in your hair, this device will make you a very happy girl! It’s at Argos here – link.
