I don't fuss over myself to often but my hair us one frustration that I've always had and a lot of it has to do with mommy guilt. Let's be honest, focusing in our hair is a costly process. Products cost a pretty penny and having your hair done is a splurge for many of us. And it's not all about cost ladies, a lot of times, yes I feel guilty spending the amount of money that I do on my hair but I always feel terrible about the time spent on my hair. That is precious time I could be spending with my family.
I've since gotten over this guilt because after I got over my own bs about my hair, I love it. I work really hard all around. I deserve to splurge on myself every once in a while. I don't buy expensive clothes, go on crazy trips or do very much for myself at all but you know what, I love it when my hair looks good. I could roll out of bed and throw on some yoga pants and leave the house confident because my hair looks bomb.com
If I had to brag about anything, it's my wonderful Lange Ondule wand. THIS THING IS AMAZING. Before I purchased this item, I heard a lot of mixed reviews. It actually took me 2 months to purchase it because it's a pretty penny. But you know what, after I received it. Its worth it and yes I would pay for it again.
Why the dilemma?
1. It is not cheap. Why spend $160 on this wand when they have other wands for like $40. You get what you pay for my friends. The wand is pretty, the cord does not tangle and my curls really do last , FOR DAYS. If you have a wand that creates curls that can last for days for under $50 please let me know! I'd love to be able to test and share it with all my mommies because not all of us can or want to spend so much for an Ondule.
For those of you who are on the cusp of this, buy it. It's worth it!
2. Rumor has it, It doesn't work.
THE ONDULE comes in two types of wands. The Black wand is more affordable ( like 50 bucks) and is made of ceramic. Ceramic is what you see all the time with store bought brands. This wand doesn't work for everyone. It's for those who have fine and easy to curl hair. I did not fall into this category.
The pink and gold wand is the one you want! It's also the more pricey one. But this one is made of Titanuim! This one will curl any hair! Yes , any hair! It also creates nice smooth curls that aren't frizzy. I have thick , frizzy hair and it never holds its curl, until now. Not sure what to get, just get this one lol. You'll be a believer, trust me. Check it out here!
I could not , for the life of me, decide on what size. So I went small, the 25mm wand. It comes in two sizes and I went with the smaller one thinking it's safe. Once I received it, I loved my curls, but I'm more of a lose beachy wave kind of gal so I later purchased the 32mm and its by far my favorite. It creates larger, softer waves.
5. Mom guilt- this is real you guys. I always feel bad when I do something for myself and with this being such a high ticket item, I was really guilty. But I had a rough week at work and I wanted to do something nice for myself and I don't regret it one bit.
I love this thing, I know you will too. Its currently on sale for a HUGE deal so pick one up! I just got my second order of the 32 mm wand the other day and I LOVE IT!
This wand has one temperature and it gets pretty hot so it comes with a heat glove to protect your hands. It heats up to 430 degrees so don't leave this lying around where tiny hands can touch it.
