I have taken the risk (if that's what you would really call it?) and purchased the wand. I tried to use it after my shower tonight.
My dry hair (please excuse the roots!)
The packaging and the product itself is pretty simple. The wand is a red colour and lightweight so easy to hold and use. It also comes with a hair protective glove (which I didn't use as I absolutely hated the feel of it on my hand! I know it sounds stupidly weird and you can judge me however, I felt uncomfortable wearing it)
There are 4 different temperatures choices you can make. I selected the highest going from my experience with my hair straighteners but I think in the future, I will go slightly lower as I feel it was too hot for my hair. (The top of my ear is also feeling the effect of the heat! :P )
The red light beside the temperature will stop flashing once ready.
It is incredibly difficult to take pictures of using the wand and showing the technique (trust me, I was trying) so what I thought would be best would be to note down below the youtube video tutorials that I follow and watch for the 'how to' guides for this kind of product.

A few pictures of my initial results:
- I have medium length hair at the moment (below my shoulders but not near my boobs!) I think if my hair was longer, the effect would look much better.
- I would recommend placing some form of hair protector or oil on the hair prior to using it. My hair is very dry at the moment following the curling.
- Once I had the hang of the technique of the curler, it was easy to use.
UPDATE: The waves have lasted in my hair for 2 days now without the need for any hairspray, how good?! So impressed! This may be my new hair addiction!
Does anyone else own this wand or a similar product? What would our advice be to perfecting the look?
