Babyliss Ceramic Dial-A-Heat Curling Tong12:18
I love big bouncy curls like Kim Kardashian's hair, so the minute I saw this curling iron... I knew I had to them & they did not disappoint.
Babyliss Ceramic Dial-A-Heat Curling Tongs come from the Babyliss Pro Stylist Tools range. The Babyliss Pro Stylist Tools range has been around for 50 years working alongside hairdressers to develop styling tools aimed at the professionals.
Well it they seemed to have learned a thing or two as these tongs gave my hair professional results every time I use them.
The tongs feature 25 temperature settings for all different hair types from synthetic hair extensions to medium hair to Afro Hair. Whilst this feature seems to work very well, I would be cautious of immediately using the synthetic setting if I had synthetic hair extensions as there is no temperature guide anywhere. If you have synthetic hair extensions then test it these tongs on a 'off cut' before whipping them out on a Friday night 'coz melted hair extensions are not cool!
When the correct setting is chosen it heats up quickly to reach the correct temperature & a green light comes on to confirm the right temperature has been reached. I found the tongs easy to use & it held the temperature very well. As I was looking to achieve very very big curls the 38mm barrel was perfect for me but the tongs also come in 24mm & 32mm.
As the barrel is made of ceramic my curls came out smooth & shiny & to hold the curls I used a heat protectant & hairspray. After using the tongs there was a small build up of product but this was wiped away quickly & easily with a soft cloth.
