Remington curl revolution tong CI606
Fabulous curling appliance. Very easy to use and gave the desired curl. I have fairly thick hair so used the hottest of the 5 heat settings. Perfect for achieving a natural curl look. Appliance heats up fast and comes with a cute heat resistant pouch. The rotating barrel is two way which I found useful, and the 4x protection coating left my hair shiny and manageable. I have already recommended this product to my friends as I think it offers value for money.

Wow, just wow! I have thick, very thick hair and this curls it at just 200c!! I am also rubbish at styling my own hair, especially when attempting to curl in different directions to give the more natural look. This product does it for you with the flick of a switch!! It also cuts out if you wind it too tight which is great for the novice stylist and I guess younger ones too! The heat element is also tucked away so no risk of burning fingers. Easily the best curler I've used. Comes with a cute pink pouch to keep it in.

I wanted to love this product so much....finally a curler that does all the hard work for you.
It is so easy to use, looks stylish and well made. You simply slide a piece of hair in the slot holding the section of hair at the bottom and the curler self rotates to wrap the hair around the barrel, then release to leave a nice loose curl in mere seconds.
Other great features include a lock for the heat setting - which is not to be underestimated as I have had previous curlers where you would keep knocking the heat off with your fingers whilst styling.
It comes in an attractive pink satin pouch, heats up quickly and has a wide range of temperature settings to suit all hair types. You can also change the direction of the curls to give a more natural appearance with very little effort.
However, I have so far used it on 3 occasions and I don't know whether there is a certain 'knack' to it, but I found the curls were very hit and miss, with some curling perfectly, but #more often that not# some not curling at all. Regularly my hair would get trapped in the tong and pull, so I would need to manually release it, and stray hairs would also get ripped out in the base of the barrel. The time saved by the curler doing the hard work was then taken up having to re-curl sections that remained straight. I put it up to the highest setting hoping it would make a difference, but it just made my hair hotter, not curl any better. It is also an expensive product.
I don't want to give up on it yet as the features and thought process behind the product are great, however my impressions of this product so far have been sadly disappointing.
