Review of Babyliss Babyliss Pro Procelain Ceramic Curling Iron by egoh
After reading so much about Ceramic curling Iron -- I finally had to give it a try. I started with the Revlon Ceramic Curling Iron ( just did NOT like it at all)-- I decided to bite the bullet and shell out for a Professional one ( babyliss Pro). I did my research and seems like the Babyliss Pro ceramics series got the best rating over Hot Tool's ceramic series (the purple ones, NOT the gold series).
I bought a 1 1/4" curling iron to begin --and since it was supposed to get really HOT (at 200W) I started out at setting 16 -- and was TRULY disappointed. It did curl my (asian coarse) hair but the curl lasted like 10 mins. I was almost tempted to RETURN IT ! I'm glad that I didn't because I tried it multiple time, each time slowly increasing the setting. My number was 24 (there is a total of 30 setting)! It's hot enough to curl and the curls lasted the whole day -- I normally only use only heat protectant with no mousse or gel or hairspray. So, my advise to all the 1st time Babyliss user would be to either TURN IT UP or slowly dial up to find a number that's perfect for your hair :)
My normal curling iron is the Conair Instant Heat, which I LOVE but I have to say using the Babyliss Pro Ceramic curling iron -- my hair does feel a LOT softer (less "DRY) and I have less frizz :) I gave it 4 lippie because I do feel that it's a tad bit expensive (and because I'm a occassional user, I curl my hair maybe ONCE a month...) Yes, I would buy babyliss again, I'm waiting for my order of the 3/4" & 1 " curling iron to arrive :)
