Mark Hill: Raw Snow Leopard...

The Mark Hill Raw Snow Leopard Sexy Waves & Curls Raw Pro-Magic Wand and the Professional Style & Shine Raw Pro-Power Dryer were gifts I received this Christmas, but I really felt that the curling wand needed a mention, as quite frankly, I LOVE IT!

I have always been a GHD girl and will always use them, but no longer for curling. This does it so much better! Basically, it is a clamp-less ceramic wand which goes up to 200 degrees, with a minimum of 120 degrees. It doesnt take too long to heat up, it is longer than the GHD, and it also has an automatic safety meaning that it turns off after a certain amount of time. This does annoy me however, as having quite a lot of hair, it takes a while to do and it turns itself off just as I'm about 3/4 of the way done. 

What makes it a winner in my eyes, and much better than a straightener for curling, is how easy it is to use, I mean it takes a while to learn how to use GHD's to create smooth curls, I know people who still can't do it, but this you can literally pick up (with the heat gloves on of course) and create beautiful curls or waves depending on the amount of hair used at each time, in an instant.

using the wand.
It feels like it is so much better for my hair too. The curls are so soft and my hair feels far less dried out after using this compared to the GHD's. It must be down to the heat used, as I'm sure GHD's are far hotter than the 200 degrees of the wand. The only downside to this wand is that I keep melting my nail polish! (Not really a downside I know, but I couldn't really think of a con and this is kind of annoying. I really have to learn to keep my fingers out of the way.)

All in all, I think everyone who curls their hair should go and get a wand. There's so many on the high street at the minute and I've heard so many good things about a lot of different brands. They're definitely worth a try.

Have a great day,
