Back in November 2013, I was about to go on one of my first dates with J, so I popped to my local hairdresser to get my hair done! Talk about trying to make a good impression! She’d just bought a Curl Secret which was still relatively new, I was intrigued so I said I’d give it a go. It was absolutely incredible!! You take a portion of hair, put it in the groove, gently clamp the product together and the product will suck the hair into the “ceramic curl chamber”. The Curl Secret beeps four times when it’s ready, you unclamp, release and you’re left with a beautiful curl!! There are three settings for soft waves, loose curls or tight curls. It took about 30 minutes to do all my hair and it’s quite thick. Note: it’s only suitable for hair up to bust length and not suitable for synthetic hair! I can’t imagine the carnage of trying to sort that mess out!
I loved it so much that J bought me my own one for Christmas the following year 🙂 It definitely takes practice to be able to use this on your own hair, but it’s still relatively simple. There are even instructions on the product which tell you which side you have to keep facing towards your head. I got the hang of it really quickly and if you accidentally put too much hair into it, it will beep like crazy, you’ll panic like hell but still be able to pull the hair out easily.
- First Impressions: I love the end result, I think the curls are so pretty and the Curl Secret alternates curl direction for a really natural look. The only downside is having to sit around for ages actually curling your hair, a heated roller set would probably give a similar end result and you can leave them in while doing other things like cleaning, blogging or watching tv!
- How did I get on?: I got the hang of it pretty quickly and the instructions on the Curl Secret are great at reminding me which way round I need to hold it.
- Value for money: It’s about £100+ so it is one of the pricier products on the market.
- Will I use it again?: I’ll probably use it for special occasions rather than every day use, but as I love how it looks, I’m sure I’ll be using it again 🙂
- Verdict: 4.5/5.
