Review: BaByliss Diamond Waves Wand

Being a teenager (and entering my 20’s) in the 90’s means poker straight hair was the order. And it remained with me for quite some time. Only in the last 2 or three years I started curling my hair.

It does take some time to get it right and now I think I finally got the hang of it. And the BaByliss Diamond Waves Wand, available from John Lewis, makes the job much easier.

This wand is of standard size and it has a twisted barrel, which serves as a guide when curling. It also has a very handy cool tip, to make life easier and more likely to be burn-free! The swivel 2.5m cord is also very practical.

What stroke me first was how quick it heats up; admittedly, I set it to the third (180) of the five temperature settings (the maximum is 210 degrees), to suit my hair texture.

I separated a strand, rolled it in, held for about 10 seconds and unwrapped and the curls are well defined and symmetrical.

I tend to put my waves lower in the head, instead of starting at the recommended 2in from scalp. Sometimes, if I am wearing extensions, I do them even lower. After doing the whole head, I let them cool down and brushed. A lot. And ended up with nice waves. Really nice waves.

Basically, I really love the effect, with little effort. I used with L’Oréal Studio Line #TXT Wave Creating Spray.

The BaByliss Diamond Waves Wand  has a diamond infused ceramic finish barrel to help create smooth, shiny and soft styles.  I have to say it didn’t fry my hair and the styles are smooth.

Being the anxious type, I welcome the auto switch-off after 72 minutes! And it comes with a nice little glove to protect your hands while styling.

The BaByliss Diamond Waves Wand sells for the amazing value of £29.95 from John Lewis. You can also find other Babyliss products, from this range and others, at John Lewis.
