Not too long ago, it was easy to tell who had naturally beautiful curls and who had to rely on a curling iron for gorgeous tresses: the tell-tale clip kink. Try as you might, there is just no easy way to get rid of the kink. Many women ended up not bothering to curl their hair anymore due to this. Thanks to the Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron, that nasty little kink at the bottom of your curl will no longer be a problem.
Sedu products are made specifically with the stylist in mind. Key focus areas should always be good quality products at affordable prices. Sedu‘s clipless curling iron sets the benchmark for curling irons across the globe, as it not only manages to address the kink, but also the desperate need to have a choice in terms of the heat settings. But there’s some much more to it, so here’s what you’ll learn in the following minute:
- all the good and the bad of the Revolution Clipless curling wand
- how to use it
- from where to buy it
Sedu’s quality curling irons
When purchasing one of these irons, you have the option of purchasing different sizes, which makes it a bit easier to control the sizes of the curls you want. It also makes it a bit easier to match it to the length of your hair. It’s available in 19mm, 25mm and 38mm. For now, the only colour option is black with the maximum heat setting up to 350 degrees F.
What makes this iron something to write about, is the fact you have the benefit of enjoying a ceramic technology. What this means for your hair is even heat distribution, which reduces the risk of your hair being exposed to overly hot or cold spots often associated with heat technology. Ceramic technology is also known to add a little bit of shine to your curls. The barrel is also polished and microscopically seamless, which, of course, means that it shouldn’t start splitting or peeling. This is great news to those who have had their hair snagged or singed by one of these devices.
Using the iron is very simple. It comes with a heat protective glove that will protect your fingers from getting toasted. Simply plug in the iron and switch it on. There is a light indicating that it is on. Next, select the desired heat. You have three heat settings to choose from, which is not only related to the type of hair you have, but also the type of curl you would like. You’ll find that it heats up fairly quickly thanks to the ceramic heat technology, so best have the glove on as soon as possible. There is a built-in stand on the iron the folds out, which is quite important so it does not burn the furniture while you’re getting the next piece of hair ready. Half an inch strands of hair work really well as they tend to heat up very quickly.
Simply hold the tip of the strand and wrap it around the clipless iron, preferably away from the face. Once heated through, simply let the strand drop and pull the iron up. The polished barrel really helps here as there is no opportunity for the hair to snag or get tangled. If you feel your curls are a bit too tight, a good idea would be to run your fingers through them once just to loosen them up a little. The larger the size of the barrel, the looser the curl. A big plus to Sedu is that they’ve managed to keep the weight to about 2 lbs on the heaviest iron, sparing you some much-needed energy to get those curls done.
A few handy tips and tricks from those who have used these irons before, include choosing the right sized barrel for your hair. Short-haired ladies are better off going for the smaller barrels, as the larger barrel hardly makes a difference to short hair. Also, be on the look-out for combo packs which include a heat protective oil. Sedu has one in their range which seems to be quite popular with the users. Also, try to approach the section of hair you would like to curl from behind the head, with the tip of the barrel pointing down and the cord side facing up. This will reduce the chances of you getting burnt in the face and will also allow the curl to drop easier.
Another pointer is the use a comb instead of a brush to ensure you have a neater finish to your curl. Many users also do not seem to need to use hairspray as it just weighs the curls down. This is, however, personal choice.
If you’re concerned about the safety features on this iron, your heart can rest assured. Every precaution has been taken to ensure the iron is safe and easy to use. An often overlooked safety feature is the fact that the iron has a swivel cord. This is great news, as the chances of dropping the iron are reduced. This also makes it easier to reach the difficult spots like the top or back of your head without burning your arms or getting the cord tangled. The fact that it has a built-in kickstand was mentioned before, however, does make a big difference when combined with the swivel cord. Chances of this iron slipping down and damaging carpets, toes and shoes are down to the minimum. If you happen to be one of those ladies who are perpetually nervous about things you may have forgotten on, the curling iron should be the least of your worries. It has an automatic timer that switches the device off after half an hour of not being used. This is not just a great product to use as a stylist, but safe to use at home.
If you’re concerned about being tied to one little corner of the room to style your hair due to cord restrictions, the 9-foot long cord should set your mind at ease. It allows for comfortable maneuverability whilst tackling the tricky strands on the other side of your head. This may seem like a tiny feature, however, any woman who has had to give up her position in front of the mirror due to a short cord will know the struggle is real.
There are many places from where you can get this unit. As you probably already know, it’s not the cheapest curling iron of the markets, however, I’ve managed to find a great discount, so make sure you check this out.
Sedu’s revolution curling iron is a tough to pass. I love almost everything about this product. Given the quality of the build, I assume it will last at least 4-5 years of regular usage. What do you think? Are you considering buying this? I would love your feedback on this matter.
