What Makes the Remington CI9538 Curling Wand so Good to Use on Fine Hair?
High temperature will never be your fine hair’s best friend. That is why a curling wand that has a wide working temperature range like the Remington CI9538 Curling Wand has is much preferred if you want to curl your fine hair. Start out with a lower temp around 300ºF and then raise it up slightly until you find the heat setting where it curls your hair without damaging it.
This curling wand’s included ceramic pearl technology also makes sure that the barrel heats evenly and your hair slides across the barrel of this model curling wand very easily.
Customer Support and Potential Concerns with this Curling IronRemington is a very sizable company that has hundreds of beauty products in the marketplace. As such they have a very good customer service department to support them. This curling wand also comes with a very good 4-year limited warranty.
Are there some things I don’t like about this curling wand? You bet. One thing I don’t like is the fact that tapered barrel curling wands take a lot of effort to master if you are not used to working them. If you are a person who gets easily frustrated when you curl your hair you better stick to a more conventional style curling iron.
The 1 – 1 ½” tapered barrel on the Remington CI9538 Curling Wand also does not allow you to make smaller and tighter curls with it. So if you like tight spirals and lots of spring in your curls then best avoid this model curling wand.
