BeyondtheBeauty Zebra Print Curling Rod Review & Giveaway

2012-04-04 11.39.12

Zebra Print Curling Rod

I have only used traditional curling irons to curl my hair before. I have never had the opportunity to use a curling rod until now. Beyond the Beauty sent me a curling rod to review.

These aren’t like regular curling irons, because they don’t have the clip part on the rod. It’s just the rod. At first- I had trouble with this, I couldn’t get close to my head because I was scared of it slipping and burning me on the forehead. Now that I’ve used it more than once, I can totally curl my hair without getting scared.

It’s just learning something new. It’s WAY much better than the traditional irons’ once you get the hang of it. The iron warms up much quicker

Here are some pictures of my hair with different angles. I love that this curling rod lets me get closer to my scalp without burning me or my forehead! I don’t use the heatproof glove that comes with it very often. Once you get the hang of how to hold it, you don’t really need to use it. It’s just a precaution so you don’t burn yourself.

I love that I could create so many different looks with just this one ROD.! I can curl it, make it wavy, flip it out, flip it in, and so much more.

With traditional irons, you usually see the crease of where the clamp on the iron has been. With this rod, there is no clamp, so you don’t have any creases.

I love how they have choices of colors. I have never seen a zebra print curling iron OR rod- until now. I love it. Adam’s mom is a zebra print fanatic, and she will for SURE try and jack this! LOL.

It takes less than a full minute to heat all the way up! So you spend more time curling and less time waiting. The trick to using the rods is to use smaller sections of hair.

You split your hair into 2 sections (top and bottom) put the top part up in a clip or elastic band and start curling on the bottom. These products help create shiny, damage-free, healthy hair.

I only had to keep my hair in the curling position on the rod for about 5-10 seconds to get that perfect wavy/curl look. I could never NEVER get it right with a curling iron-EVER!

This is a top of the line, exceptionally amazing curling rod. It is such great quality. I love that the cord is extra long. I hated using a curling iron with a short cord. Either I couldn’t move around much, or I had to locate an extension cord every time I wanted to curl. NO LONGER!!

Even the packaging that it comes in is unique and one of a kind.
