Editor’s Pick: Bushra’s 3-Barrel Curler For Mermaid Waves
As a child I had poker straight hair until puberty, the party pooper, hit me like a truck. Soon my sometimes-wavy-sometimes-curly hair with little frizzy tufts around the temples became a pain to deal with. After blow-drying my hair everyday and frying it to the point of no return, I found going the permanent straightening way so hassle-free. New hair that grew out wavy was easily dealt with thanks to my trusty flat iron. This was my hair styling routine for years, until hair that sticks sleekly to my skull didn’t hold my fancy anymore.
I now love big, bouncy hair and mostly rely on braiding my freshly washed, damp hair for texture. I’m trying to wean myself off my hot tools and now use my curler and flat iron occasionally. However, the braiding method only works overnight. What if I suddenly feel like wearing loose, mermaid waves? I believe in being prepared for every hair mood. I do not like the helplessness that comes with feeling like wavy hair but being stuck with texture-less tresses (I’m still some way from embracing my natural texture). It makes me sad — like I have no control over my life.
Revlon Perfect Heat Jumbo 3 Barrel Waver
That’s where this Revlon Perfect Heat Jumbo 3 Barrel Waver comes in. It’s like the answer to my good hair day prayers. This tool is huge and looks like it belongs on the set of Transformers. However, it’s more like a gigantic crimper that gives you loose, beachy waves in no time. It is easy to use and you don’t have to to create neat sections because you want a natural, relaxed look. But the best part about the 3 barrel waver is that you need all of 15 minutes to cover mid-length hair. Mermaid hair, yes please!
