I could never ever find the perfect curling iron. Either the curls would fall out .2 seconds later, my hair would burn, or it just didn’t look good. I have tried expensive and inexpensive ones and still I couldn’t find one that I could always rely on.
A couple of months ago I saw a couple of YouTubers using curling irons from the brand T3. The looks they created were really pretty and girls with thick, long hair like mine were using this tool. I decided to check out the website but they were sooo expensive and I just couldn’t justify spending that much on a hair tool.
This Christmas however, my parents surprised me with what is now the curling iron of my dreams. I have no idea how they knew I wanted a T3 curling iron, but they did, and I am so, so, grateful.
It works wonderfully and I love it.
The one I have is the T3 single pass curl. I love this one because its a little bit of a bigger barrel and so it creates more of a loose curls/waves look which I like. I also like that I can use it as a barrel or a wand. Which ever way I use it, the curls/waves last all day. At first I put it on the highest heat setting because I have seriously thick hair, but I was shocked to find that it was too hot and lowered the temp a bit. And it still lasts the whole day.
The barrel is also super smooth so theres no pulling of the hair when I use it as an iron. It glides right through and so the time it takes to do my hair has been cut in half compared to when I’ve tried other curlers.
While I still think that the price is a bit high, I highly recommend it if you are like me, and can’t find a curler that works good enough for you. I get so much use out of it. I have been using it every day since Christmas since it only takes about twenty minutes to do. I love the effortless look it gives me and I love how many different styles I could create out of just one tool.
Side note: Can we also just take a second to appreciate how beautiful this iron is? I have this thing where I like to use white curling irons and straighteners (also eyelash curlers… totally irrelevant) so I can see my dark brown hair. Weird, I know.
Right now I have been loving really really loose waves. I never thought I could replicate the kind of waves that I saw at salons but I finally did it with this iron. What I do is I open up the clamp and wrap my hair two or three times (my hair is long) and just roll the iron up and down for about ten seconds. When I drop the hair, its very loose and not the whole piece of hair is curled. This is a really pretty look if you want the curls/waves to look really natural. I get compliments every time I do my hair like this!
