Yogi Hair Wand | Review

In December 2012 I won a twitter competition, my prize being a Yogi Snakeskin Patterned Hair Wand. I used to be a straight hair girl, constantly straightening my wavy/curly hair but once my hair was long enough to use the hair wand I started using it all the time! When I first won it my hair sat just above my shoulders so was too short to properly curl. I still did a bit of review of the Yogi hair wand back then though as I could use it on my sister's hair. I thought now I've been using it regularly for a while I'd do an updated review post for you all, it was also requested on twitter the other day to do a full review.

looks created using the hair wand

The Yogi Snakeskin Hair Wand has a tapered barrel that goes from 25mm to 18mm, it is also a ceramic barrel which locks curls in place whilst keeping your hair looking healthy and shiny. This is a really light hair tool and my arm doesn't get tired at all when holding it up to curl my hair. It also has a decent length cable, which is something I look for in any hair tools.

I find this heats up within about 30-45 seconds so you aren't waiting around for it to heat up for ages. It comes with a heat protective glove as well which is handy as it does get quite hot (160C) and it enables you to curl your hair with confidence, without worrying about burning yourself. 

This is so easy to use, I used it to create all the looks seen above within about 20-30 minutes. I have quite a lot of hair, it's really thick and getting long now so 20 minutes is probably the quickest time it has ever taken me to curl my hair, so I'm really happy about that! You can create really tight curls or looser waves with this as well depending on how much hair you curl each time and how long you hold it around the barrel for. 

Overall I couldn't love this hair wand any more and it has become a big part of my hair routine! I'd really recommend it to you all. They also do multi-barrel hair wands, I've got my eye on them!
