    Remington's Curling Wand Did What I Thought Was Impossible And Curled My Pin-Straight Hair

    It's also extremely inexpensive, and it should be noted that I've had subpar salads for lunch that cost more than this curling wand does.

    If your hair is thin, pin straight, and incapable of holding a curl...then hello. It’s nice to meet you. I've felt your struggle. You could say we're friends.


    As someone with very straight hair, I have tried many a curling hot tool and they were all exclusively awful. The curl wouldn't hold! I'd have to fry my hair to get a curl at all! The tool itself would cost one million dollars and a vital organ!

    However, the Remington curling wand ($25) is capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital "I"). This miracle tool allows even the straightest of manes to hold the most beautiful beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you're done!

    I picked this up at my local target the night before a Sweet 16 extravaganza in 2010, which means I’ve had it for NINE YEARS. That is truly wild.

    This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60 second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you'll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again.,

    The barrel also comes in 1" and 1.5" sizes, heats up to 410°F (and can be adjusted), and a ceramic coating for even heat distribution.

    And LET ME REITERATE that I have had this exact curling wand for nine years, and none of the above features have crapped out yet.

    And did I mention that it was super affordable? Because at only $22.75, it's probably one of the least expensive curling wands on the market.,

    I've had subpar salads that cost more than this lasts-an-eternity curling wand.

    While I know you're taking my word for it (😉), here is some further proof of the gloriousness that is the Remington curling wand — by way of glowing Amazon reviews.


    "I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it's lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." —madison

    "Where has this product been all my life? I have very straight hair and thought it was unable to hold a curl. Usually my hair would lose the curl within an hour or two, leaving a chunky hairsprayed mess. With this product, my hair holds the curl all day and more-or-less the next day as well, and only requires a light misting of flexible hairspray. This is probably because it has several heat settings and most cheap curlers do not heat as hot as this one does. I use the highest setting (400-something degrees), set it with flexible hold hairspray and it works great. I now curl my hair all the time, at least once a week." —Blaire
