Hair styling is one of the aspect that I fail miserably. I don’t even know how to braid my own hair. I used to ask my bestie to braid my hair everyday when I was in secondary school.

And then I received this for hair styling purpose – Philips Easy Natural Curler. I was skeptical at first: Is it really as easy to use as claimed? What if I failed? I guess they’ll need to pass a noobie’s test in order to qualify as “easy to use”.

I remember the last time I used a hair curler. It was a nightmare! I burnt my hair 2 days before my wedding ceremony. Luckily I managed to recover it using hair mask.

There are two buttons on the sides for you to push to open the curler, revealing the plates. Release the buttons to close it back. This automatic clip mechanism makes it easier and more convenient to hold the hair strand while styling, with just one hand especially at the back of your hair.

  5. If you want to create inward curls, rotate/roll the device towards your head.
    If you prefer outwards curls, rotate/roll the device away from your head.
    For romantic soft curls, I’m doing the inward curls. You can also mix the two types of the curls for a more natural and modern style.
