Having hair that's naturally straight means I'm always on the lookout for products that can basically make it look the complete opposite, and so anything that can make it look thick and curly/ wavy will always catch my interest. Sometimes I wake up in the morning, take one look at my hair and think 'what the hell am I supposed to do with you'; unless it's just been washed and blow dried (with my head upside) down you can pretty much guarantee it's going to look flat to my head and totally limp- fantastic. While I've gone with the old method of wearing two plaits to bed for as long as I can remember, I sometimes find the results can be a bit unreliable. If one of my hair ties falls out during the night I'll wake up with one side wavy and one side straight, and there are also the times that I've plaited damp hair the night before just for it to not be completely dry by the time I've needed to take them out. This always leads to being left in some kind of weird semi-damp semi-wavy hair limbo where you've got to choose between blowdrying and straightening the frizzy mess, or throwing the whole thing up in a bun and writing it off as a bad hair day (happens far too often for my liking!) So something like Babyliss Boutiques Deep Waver is just the kind of hair tool that I've been lacking- it's quick to do and there's no waiting around for plaits to set, perfect!
Despite looking like a torture device, Babyliss Boutique's Deep Waver is really kind on the hair thanks to the large tourmaline coated barrels. There are three heat settings with a maximum of 200 degrees so you don't have to worry about killing off your hair, and there's no messing about waiting for them to heat up as they're ready to use after thirty seconds. The thing I love best about these is how easy they are to use; the thing about regular curling and waving wands is that there's some basic level of skill involved- while it's easy to do once you've got the knack for it it takes a few practices until you work out exactly what you're doing (my first attempt using a curling wand left me looking much more 'little orphan Annie' than the 'loose curls' I was aiming for- not a brilliant look for me!) With this there's none of that it's absolutely fool proof, even if you've never used anything like this before it's so simple to do right out of the box as all you have to do is clamp the waver along the lengths of each section of hair. I really love the effect it gives, unlike with plaits you can start the wave close to your head which gives loads of texture and volume and makes you look like you have twice as much hair- always a bonus!
Even if you already own a multitude of different curlers and waving tools there's definitely room in your collection for this, as it gives a completely different finish to the hair. Plus it's easy to do, and unlike with curls the results are going to be reliable and look the same every time you use it. Babyliss have a short Youtube video showing how to use this here if it's something you're looking to buy. They also have other hair styling tips and tutorials on their Youtube channel and are active on Twitter and Instagram.
