You guys, I’ve been dying to show this to you for months, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy.
I’ve been using this iron since last summer since I was one of the first to have it, and I HAVE to tell you all about it. It’s called VOLOOM, and it’s a flat-haired babe’s best friend. Have you seen how fine my hair is? Well, you’ll see below in the “before” photo, that it’s flat as a board. No lie. If you’ve seen photos of me out there on the interwebs with volume and curls, it comes with lots of product, teasing, and zhushing—and often professional styling. (Or however you spell that crazy word that means shaping and improving your hair with a little messy zhush with your hands.) For the record, I dislike teasing my hair, and will shy away from it whenever possible!
Now, I can get volume without all the pomp and circumstance. I swear it!
No crazy products involved here—it’s just this unique iron. Unlike a flat iron, this is a volumizing iron. It has rows of deep squares that meet up. I call them a waffle weave pattern, that takes the hair you have inside of it, and crimps it for lack of a better word. But believe me, it’s not like those crimping irons in the 80’s. And yes, I did use one of those in high school. Oh, memories.
Here’s a closer look at VOLOOM:
- Deep grooves that catch hair on both sides for maximum volume effect—this creates volume “pockets” due to its beveled edges
- Power button with + and – buttons for temperature control
- Iron can reach 320-350F for fine, damaged, or chemically treated hair; 350-370F for thick hair; and 370-390F for coarse or curly hair — these are the recommended settings for safety
- Digital temperature display so you know when your iron is safe to use for your hair type
- Locking mechanism to keep your iron closed for compact storage
- It also comes with sectioning clips, a teasing brush (should you need it), and a case
