However, one day while scrolling through my twitter timeline, I noticed NuMe announcing a wonderful deal! All of their original curling wands were all $29 using a certain coupon code! It took me a minute to realize what I was reading was true. I mean I have heard of good deals but this was an AMAZING one! How could something go from $169 to $29? So I knew I had to pick one up as the sale was only going on for about 4 hours.
I first had my eye on the wand that was 32mm but unfortunately that one was already sold out. So I opted for the wand that was 25mm, which surprisingly was still in stock! I was so excited that I had the chance to be apart of this amazing deal and finally try a NuMe curling wand.
I ordered it on a Friday and it arrived on the following Thursday so it took 6 days to reach my house, which really isn't bad at all. Immediately after I received it I was eager to test it out.
Here is the curling iron I've been waiting for! it looks really simple and is very light-weight which I was quite surprised. But I guess simplicity is the best sometimes. It only comes with a single button that turns it on and off. Plus it makes it super easy to use which is wonderful because I'm not one for directions.
It also came with this heat resistant glove which is amazing if you're like me and constantly finding yourself burning your fingers on hot iron tools. Of course this isn't for grabbing the iron full on when it's hot, but it does help when you're holding a strand of hair against the barrel.
Since this iron gets hot so fast and stays the same temperature it doesn't take very long to do my hair. About 10 minutes, usually less to do my whole head which is a big time difference from my old curling iron. I curled my hair and left it over night, surprisingly I found in the morning my curls still looked like they had just been done. I brushed them out and my hair was still beautifully curled but with a much softer look. With my old iron I was never able to brush out my hair, unless I wanted it to go completely flat and crazy! So the fact that I can brush my hair and STILL have the curls in contact shocked me.
I have noticed since using this a few times my curls will stay in tact and looking good for up to 3 days (and I'm sure they would look good longer but I need to wash my hair!), which is amazing to me. I have never had a styling tool work so well on me. It's honestly my favorite thing I have ever styled my hair with and even though I got it for VERY cheap, I honestly think it's worth the investment if you want something that will work and last! If I would have bought it at full price I wouldn't have regretted it.
