Enrapture Jumbo Waver.
I chose the jumbo waver because I wanted some nice defined waves in my hair. I already have naturally curly hair but I wanted to see how waves would look.
First things first, as you will see above in the pics, the packaging is gorgeous. The storage box is strong and great to reuse. The waver came with a booklet and a heat resistant case to put the waver in too. So, I let my hair dry naturally and attempted to use this.. Geez, this thing is huge! I can't explain it here, but search youtube and take a look at some of the videos, it is huge .. along with the hugeness comes heaviness and I found this so difficult to use at first, my wrist was killing.
So, I went ahead and did my whole head.. it wasn't the result I had hoped for and I figured that I was going to need to flat iron my hair and then wave it.. waving over my hair in it's natural state wasn't really making a great deal of difference. So I tried that and it looked nice (see above hair pic) .. it took ages to do because I have lots of thick hair, but I did get used to the heaviness after a few sections. I tried this on my Mum who has naturally straight hair and it works perfect for her.. Ideally for me I wouldn't want to have to straighten my hair and then wave it with more heat..
I did love how this made my hair look, but with my hair type I can usually get a similar effect from plaiting my hair and leaving it overnight, and this was just lots of hard work, what with drying, flat ironing and then waving my hair. It's my fault, I chose to try this product, I wish I had gone for the tong/wand now.. I've seen videos on that and it seems to give more defined curls with heat control. One for the wishlist!
If you have straight hair and you want to wave it (like my Mum) this would be great. If you have thick, already wavy /curly hair like me, it may not work so well without straightening first.
