Professional Curling Iron By Xtava

Professional Curling Iron By Xtava

I have long thick hair and use several styling tools.  I switch off and on between straightening my hair and curling my hair....depends on the day.  I was given the opportunity to try out the Xtava curling iron and share my experience.

It arrived in a sleek. black box with instructions.  I decided since I have used irons all my life I would skip over the instructions and fire it up.  I noticed it heated up quickly, which is always a plus because I do not like to wait for my irons to heat up....Im always in a hurry.  It has a white "clip" that holds the end of your hair in place as you twist the iron.  This clip was difficult to use for a couple of reasons.  I have layers in my hair so getting the clip to hold my layered ends caused pieces to fall out.  Second, the clip only holds a small amount of hair, so the curls can not be too large.  After figuring this all out it was time to curl my hair.

I am left handed and I think for the first time in my life it was a benefit using this iron.  You have to pay close attention to which direction you are clipping and turning the iron, otherwise you will have a kink at the end of the curl.  Being left handed helped with the position of the clip and the turning direction of the iron.  Once I got the hang of it, I was able to curl a little faster.  

My final thoughts:  This iron is great for someone with thin hair as the size of pieces can't be too large.  I have long, thick hair and it not only took a really long time to do my entire head, but I could only curl half way up.  I had a difficult time getting the ends of my hair to curl because of my layers, so most of my ends stayed straight.  The great thing about this curling iron is it heats up quickly and gives "Shirley Temple" type curls.  So, if you have thin, shoulder length hair this would be the perfect iron for you.
