Curly Whirly Hair: Cloud Nine The Wand Curler Review

Before my life revolved around being a Mama, I actually had time to do things like, style my hair.  

These days, time for that kind of things is at the minimum.  So, if I do decide to pretty up once in a while, it has to be with a very quick and easy to use tool. 

I have tried the Cloud Nine straighteners before, which are truly excellent, but never the curlers!  Here I have The Wand:

The Cloud 9 Wand Curler Review

Alongside the Cloud Nine Wand is The Waving Wand (better for longer hair because of the thicker barrel) and The Micro Wand. The Wand however, the one I have here is the standard size in the middle which is useful for most hair lengths. 

The Cloud Nine Wand comes in a very sleek stylish box.  As someone who gets a lot of hair appliances to test, I can say that the Cloud Nine range makes the most stylish packaging – stuff you couldn’t throw away.  It also fits the price range it’s in which is dearer than the usual high street products, from Babyliss, John Frieda etc.

Inside the presentation box is the wand, which comes well padded. My first impressions was that it is a fairly big substantial thing and it’s very very well made.  This wand comes with a cover which is a really nice touch as it protects the wand, and means you can carry it around when it’s still warm.  

It also comes with 3 temperatures, so you can choose accordingly, and a swivel cord so you can twist it 360 degrees without getting stuck.

As I mentioned before this is not a light thing, it’s very sturdily built.

I remember when I first used one of these waving tools, I wasn’t convinced it could keep curl in my straight Asian hair (when I was younger curling tongs never ever ever lasted). Amazingly, they did work and this Cloud Nine Wand also created curls that lasted all day (with a light spritz of styling fluid too). 

It heats up very very quickly – around a minute for the middle temperature I chose. 

I can’t help but think about how fair hair tools have come sometimes! When I bought my first tools, they took about 30 minutes to heat up – you used to turn it on then go and get a drink before returning!

You get a heat protective glove with this product. 

I found the wand itself quite easy to use. I say quite, because my hair is mid length at the moment and actually more layered than I first thought! Therefore, I found that I had to use the tip of the wand the most – in other words with my hair the length it is, I struggled to get a full curl with this size. Once my hair is longer again it will work perfectly! 

I really do love the idea of the cover:

I am going to work with it and get a full head of nice bounce before posting a picture up. At the moment I get a pretty soft half wave with it but it’s not quite curly – in hindsight I think the mini wand would work better for girls like me with mid length layered hair and there’s more room for me to twirl my hair around the tool.

I tried this out on my cousin who has very long Asian hair. It worked a treat, even when I only held her hair there for about 5 seconds per section, and it stayed put too:

I really think if you are starting out with hair tools it’s really worth investing in good products – I have dozens of wands and straighteners and really, I just needed one good quality pair all along.  Cloud Nine’s, if you are looking to invest really are a good choice, I for one have given away a lot of my other straighteners etc. 

Verdict:

Excellent product from Cloud Nine, do think about which size will suit your hair length best though!

This is £99 from Cloud Nine.
