It’s a whole new hair world for me!
For the past 3 years, I’ve been on Operation Healthy Hair. I stopped using heat on my hair (only on special occasions.. about 5-6 times a year) and stopped the dyes as well (I’ve been dying my hair since I was 13!) My hair was FRIED when I decided to do this. I’m glad to say my fabulous locks have been heat and dye-free long enough! It’s finally at my goal length and it’s all healthy! No split ends, which is somewhat of a miracle for me.
A few weeks ago, I started re-introducing heat on my hair – I am aiming for 2-4 times a month? We’ll see how it goes. Anyway, this Curl Active curler by Rowenta has been amazing! I should start off by saying that their PR company sent me this for a possible review. I don’t do sponsored reviews, so they’re not paying me any money for this. You might start to wonder if they are, because I freakin’ love this thing and it will show in this post. Juuuust wanted to put it out there. Honest reviews all up in this blog! And what! (too much coffee today)
Anyway, I brought it with me to LA last week. I love that it comes in a protective travel pouch, making it super easy to pack. (Totally got our LA team on this, too! lol)
I also really like the coating on it (the terms they use are too fancy for me) but I know that my hair does not feel burnt or dry when I use it, so that’s a win!
And here are some of the functions.
Here’s a quick video to show you how it works:
It was a little intimidating to use at first (it’s very high-tech compared to my heatless curls method I have been using), but once you get the hang of it, it is sooo easy! It takes me less than 10 minutes to do my hair in the morning when I use this.
Products (in order of use):
- Vidal Sassoon Waves Hair Primer Spray (Spray on damp or dry hair)
- Matrix Total Results Heat Resist Iron Tamer (I use one pump for each side of my head)
- Vidal Sassoon Waves hair Spray (Sprayed on before you head out the door. Love this because it doesn’t make my hair brittle! You can use a stronger hair spray if you need your waves to stay all day, but I like mine pretty loose so this is perfect)
You can buy it at RowentaBeauty or at your local Trade Secrets (it’s on sale for $99, regular $180 until Dec 24th!)
I’m happy to answer any questions you have about this! I’m a big fan and have been recommending it as much as I can. If you’ve been using this for awhile, share your tricks! :) Or if you have any products to recommend to me? I’m new at this heat game and technology’s come a long way, so don’t be shy to let me know what I’ve been missing.
