Flat Iron Experts Curling Wand Review

When I became a mom I quickly learned that my needs would always be second fiddle. To my dismay, this also included my beauty regimen. So what I'm basically saying is if you were to run into me at the store on any given day, my hair would not be looking it's best. Typically I'd be okay with that but lately I've been feeling like I need a makeover. Thanks to Flat Iron Experts, you can give yourself a whole transformation simply by acquiring a new hair styling tool! 
*I received a complimentary curling wand for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions* 

Flat Iron Experts is an online beauty shop with warehouses in the United States and Canada. They specialize in professional reviews, recommendations, and the education of today's most popular flat iron brands. Flat Iron Experts takes pride in their customer service and strives to answer all of your questions and to assist you in making an educated decision in your purchase. 

Flat Iron Experts generously sent me the Cortex Professional Ceramic Digital Curling Iron as well as their Thermal Shine Spray and Macadamia Natural Oil Spray! Needless to say I was looking forward to my mini mom makeover. I love curling my hair but it just takes so long to do! I have naturally poofy, wavyish hair so unless I put it up, curl it, or straighten it, my hair is typically a mess. I have tried traditional curling irons and they always scare me, I fear that my hair will get stuck or I'll forget to release my hair from the curling iron in time! Silly fear, I know. When Flat Iron Experts said that they would be sending a curling iron that was actually a curling wand I was super excited, finally I could curl my hair without fear of the curling iron. The Cortex Curling Wand arrived bubble wrapped in a box that fit the wand perfectly. I decided to hang onto the box for organized storage when the curling wand isn't in use!

The Cortex Curling Iron (wand) is easy to use and heats up to 450*F! The heat distributes evenly across the entire surface of the wand so that it heats your hair more efficiently and eliminates damaging any hot spots. The Cortex technology helps preserve moisture in your hair, helps eliminate frizz, and causes less overall damage than other curling wands on the market. The Cortex Curling Iron features an 11" heat resistant cord and includes a heat resistant glove for your hands protection! 

Using the Cortex Curling Iron (wand) was a breeze, simply plug it in, turn it on, let it heat up, and start curling! To curl your hair with the wand you take a section of your hair and start as close to the scalp as you can (or want), curling your hair around the wand. How long you let your hair sit on the wand is up to you depending on how tight of a curl you want and the thickness of your hair. The look I was going for was loose curls/beachy waves so I started the curl around ear level and head my hair on the wand for about 15-25 seconds which created a very loose and comfortable wave. I was naughty and forgot to use the heat resistant glove but I was very careful throughout the entire process so I wouldn't burn myself! I left about an inch of hair at the bottom uncurled so that I could easily hold the hair and the curling wand at the same time. 

When I let my hair off of the wand I was left with gorgeous loose curls that gave me a very casual but beautiful hairstyle!
