If you are like me, you are used to curling your hair from the end up to the root. This can often leave hair really curly at the ends and slightly wavy at the tips. It also isn’t the best for your hair as your delicate ends get the brunt of the heat and this can cause excessive dryness and split ends.
KQC has introduced Swirl, a curling iron that curls your hair from the root to the tip with a new clamp, swirl and release technique. In a nutshell, you clamp the curling iron near the root of your hair section and, using your thumb, rotate the thumb piece to roll your curls, then when it reaches the tip of your hair, it releases in to beautiful curls.
The Swirl emanates negative ions and Far-Infrared Rays (FIR), which restores hair’s moisture. The unique dual ceramic heaters enable FIR to penetrate to the core of hair and heat from the inside out to curl tresses in half the time, making it an essential for on-the-go lifestyles. By exciting the molecules, FIR also invigorates the cuticle to soften hair texture and stimulates hair growth.
To suit varying hair lengths and styles, the KQC Swirl Professional Curling Iron is available in 3 barrel sizes: small (3/4”), medium (1”) and large (1 ¼”). The temperature settings reach up to 410°F (210°C) for various hair types and the barrel heats up quickly. Also included is a 1 year warranty and bonus styling how-to videos available free online.
I got the chance to try out the 1″ barrel and I have to say that it took a bit of getting used to. My previous 38 years of experience kept making me want to curl from the tip up. I also have severely thick hair so I got caught up a few times. The barrel does rotate very smoothly and it heats evenly and quickly. I am not discouraged though and I know I will catch on.
