Review on Cortex 4 in 1 Curling Wand
Review time baby! OMG I am in love with the Cortex 4 in 1 curling Wand
and I LOVE that I don't need to use hair spray to make the curls stay, they look natural and wavy... plus it comes with 4 interchangeable wands so that I can achieve different looks.
I used the second to largest wand--and got great waves! I'm excited to try it again! I would suggest upping the heat though a bit. I tried my friend Haley's Nume 4 play wand that is literally the same thing (can be a bit pricier but she had a coupon code for it) and she didn't seem to need as high of heat setting. The price of one curling wand for the Nume is the price of the Cortex but you get 4.. just depends, so shop around! I bought mine off Amazon and literally got it two days later with free shipping, SCORE!
I give it 4.5/5 the only thing I need to figure out is heat setting, otherwise this thing is BAD to the ASS! Otherwise it would be 5/5, def worth the money (about $65ish)! Bye bye straightener to curl my hair!
--hair a day old works best
--I used a 250 heat setting, more then I wanted but whatever
-curl hair away from your face
-dont hold hair tight to the wand, the loser the you hold, the loser the curl, unless you're going for a certain look
-tousle hair by running fingers through it and flip your head upside down and then you CAN spray with hair spray if you feel you need to
-brush hair for softer look and curls/waves
-LOVE BED HEAD root lifter, however I'm not using it here!
