Today's post will be a product review. First and foremost as a quick disclaimer, this post is not sponsored, I purchased this with my own money and this is my complete honest review!
I'll be reviewing the Nume Classic Reverse Curling Wand! Now if you watch any YouTube videos you'll see this brand gets a lot of hype and they claim its the best curling wands you'll ever use!
Obviously I was intrigued and skeptical because how can this wand be any different or better then all the other brands out there?
So after a long time of wanting to try and test it out myself to see if the claims were true, and a looooot of searching for coupon codes (as the last thing i wanted to do is drop the hefty price of $175 on a curling wand that I easily could pick up for $20 bucks at the drugstore!)
I finally found a coupon code on a YouTube video posted by Ingrid - or MissGlamorazzi as she's known on YouTube. Here's the link to the video she has the code listed:
She also has another coupon code in the down bar as well, but she has one to get The reverse curling wand for $27! The code is: ILOVENUGGET
Definitely check out Ingrid's channel as well because she has some awesome video's and she seems like a nice, down to earth, relatable girl :) I'm not sure when this code will expire but if you are interested I tried today and it still works!
So obviously after finding that code I knew I had to place an order! With tax and shipping my grand total was $39 but you can't argue with that when you'd typically be paying $175+!!
My first impression was how quickly my order was shipped to me! I placed my order on the 5th and I received it yesterday afternoon on the 8th! They are based in California and I live in Pennsylvania so talk about quick shipping!
This is what the box looks like:
When you open the box there was the wand, the heat protectant glove, a manual, and also a coupon for 60% another future order…. perhaps more reviews will be coming up with that code! For picture purpose i removed the manual and coupon so it wasn't over crowded!
I love that the cord is nice and long so no matter where you have to plug it in you have plenty of cord to make it to a mirror. Another things I love is the fact that the base where to cord comes out swivels a complete 360 Degree so the cord NEVER gets in the way even when curling the back of your hair!
The wand has a nice weight too it, but not so heavy that it hurts to be lifting it so your arms don't tire out.
The wand also was fully heated within 60 seconds!
When I curled i separated in 3 different sections, the top middle and bottom layer.
I wore the heat protectant glove the whole time. It did a pretty good job, never got burnt felt a little heat coming through the tips tho but nothing unbearable. The one downside of the glove was sometimes It caused a little frizz, but my hair also has been frizzy this winter, due to the cold and the blonde in my hair. It was never too much that i couldn't handle, i just would place to wand on the counter and smooth it with my ungloved hand and then curl.
I curled my whole head in 20 mins, which is pretty good for just using a product for the first time!
How I curled it is a little hard to explain but maybe if you guys want I can record a video of it speeded up so you can see the technique I did!
But to put it basically I took pieces about an inch to 1/2 an inch held the wand with the larger part pointing down and the smaller part is where the root of your hair is and you just wrap the pieces in a spiral motion down the wand and hold for about 5-10 seconds.
Then I gently let the hair slide into the gloved palm of my hair and slowly let it drop. Some curls I let sit a little longer in my palm to cool and get a tighter curl.
The results are absolutely AMAZING. I have never had my hair this curly, and bouncy, and shiny!
The curls are very tight as first, but all I did was take my finger tips, at the base head and gently finger comb and shake to curls out a bit. I also tipped my head upside down and scrunched a bit to make it a bit looser and more natural!
The only product I used in my hair was Tresemme Heat Protectant, I sprayed about 5 mins before and let dry (please ladies let your heat protect DRY before using heat tools that how it protects! if you spray and then use heat that smoke that caused is the product burning away and then your hair is not protected! 5-10 mins to let sit and dry and sink in to protect will really help keep your hair healthy and strong!!)
After ! got it how I liked a used a light coating of my Aussie Hair spray for hold.
I decided that I should take pictures before I went to bed last night as well. I took pictures 7 hours after curling.
The curls are still nice, a little but looser but still full of the shape and curl! I'm impressed!
Now for the last test. Sleep!!!
I slept in as its referred too, a pineapple, you loosely stack curls on the top of your head, and basically look like a fool! I made a nice face in the picture to show! I know, I know. It's sp attractive maybe my next date night I'll wear my hair just like this! Just kidding!
I took it out in the morning and had slight bed head.
And then basically finger combed and shook it out for no longer than 2 minutes and these are my results, with no products at all!
I'm speechless. Beautiful bouncy loose curls. Amazing 2nd day curls!
So my review is, if you need a new curling wand or are wanting to start curling, get this curling wand!!! It is well worth it, and if I wasn't such a bargain hunter I do say this is even well worth the $175! So A big WIN all around 5++ Stars all around!! I love it!
If that code doesn't work for you just google search Nume coupon codes, there are so many codes out there to save you money too!
I love this wand and I don't think I'll ever go back to using another brand again!
