Whether it’s getting ready for a big event or just to look done up for the day, I can always rely on Remington’s T|Studio Thermaluxe Collection to achieve a flawless hair style all day long. The collection features advanced thermal technology for long lasting, healthy hair and 24/7 style perfection! To me, good hair sets a precedent for a good day — because when I feel confident, I can achieve anything.
Remington’s Advanced Thermal Technology collection was developed over the course of 27 months and many hours of consumer research to ensure superior performance. The advanced heating system in each tool allows for the heat to quickly and safely transform hair. This collection is readily available for purchase at your local Walmart or online at Amazon.com.
Naturally, my hair is straight but I definitely get bed head after waking up after a good night’s rest. Remington’s hair straightener allows me to quickly touch up my hair so that I don’t look like a lion just out of bed! The straightener takes only 15 seconds to heat up, and will give me flawlessly straight hair in under 5 minutes. Other straighteners I’ve used fluctuate in temperature, making it harder to achieve straight hair efficiently. Because Remington’s Thermaluxe straightener gives even heat distribution, I don’t have to straighten the same section of hair over and over to get even the stubborn parts of my hair straight. I love how smooth and shiny my hair looks afterwards!
Those of you who know me know that I love loose beach waves for an everyday hair style. On days I want some volume in my hair, I use Remington’s curling wand. This one took some practice to get used to because all the curling wands I had used before had a clip-on clasp allowing me to easily curl my hair mostly with one hand. This wand definitely requires more of an attention span at first (to avoid burning your skin/scalp from certain angles) and two hands. After I got a hang of it though, I found that it cuts down curling time by half. What normally takes close to 30 minutes to finish now takes me anywhere from 10-15 minutes depending on the look I’m trying to achieve. Also, the gradient heating system concentrates where you need lift most — at the root! Long gone are the flat-head days.
After some experimenting, I also learned that the wand is very versatile, despite its smaller barrel. I am able to make the curls tighter or looser depending on how much hair I curl at once, and how long I keep the hair wrapped around the wand. The first time around, my hair turned out a lot more voluminous than I had expected. While it’s not my everyday go-to look, I do love how these curls loosen out over the course of a few days. This works out nicely because I’m not keen on washing my hair so often… and it saves me a lot of styling time!
With other curling wands, my hair wouldn’t hold curl for very long without a ton of hair spray (a major con for having stubborn straight Asian hair). With Remington’s T|Studio wand, I surprisingly didn’t have to use any hair spray! My curls were a lot bouncier and my hair felt a lot healthier. For looser waves, I try not to keep the hair wrapped for too long and I curl in smaller sections so that it looks effortless & natural. Looser waves are ideal for the day, but will require more touch-up if I want them to last longer.
If you’re clumsy like me and sometimes worry about whether you’ve left your hot tools on and fear coming back to a house on fire, you’ll greatly appreciate the fact that these tools have a built-in automatic shut-off function. After 60 minutes, they will automatically turn off so you don’t have to worry if you’re out of the house for a few hours.
Both the hair straightener and curling wand are pretty lightweight so they’re ideal for travel. The straightener even has a lock function that allows you to keep it compact in your suitcase. I love that I can easily bring my Remington styling tools anywhere I go for the perfect look any time.
