I have the most pathetic hair. Luckily, I’m cool with it [I’m more of a nail girl]. Most days I throw it on top of my head & just rock with it. Other days I feel like putting in a little effort. I’ve been avoiding hot tools & hair products for about week now – I’m trying to go “no-poo” …but that’s a whole other blog post [you can Google it in the mean time]!

Anyways, this weekend I decided to do SOMETHING with my hair. I was going to be seeing people that I hadn’t in a while…in public, and didn’t feel like looking like a total frump. In an effort to follow as many “no-poo” rules as possible, I decided to keep it simple. Using only a heat protectant spray on the ends of my hair & my secret ceramic weapon of a hot tool [keep reading], I was able to bring my limp & lame locks to life!

I’ve used this tool quite a few times before … & every-single, no seriously, literally, every-single-time I get SO many compliments on my hair. After receiving so much love in person & on social media this weekend, I decided I needed to share!

Insert secret weapon…

My cousin, who has thick & fabulous hair purchased this iron & it wasn’t for her. Being her younger, beauty-product-junkie of a cousin, she passed it off to me [thank you, Dawn]!
This is honestly the perfect tool for anyone who has thin & flat hair [like I do :(]. It creates a clean, beachy-wave style that lasts!

HOW-TO: …Apologies for my photobooth pics below – I didn’t have time to properly photograph. Hopefully they are still  helpful!

1) Clip up your hair & leave a small section out to clamp. The more sections you have, the better…more volume!

2) Starting from the root of that piece of hair, clamp the tool on top of the hair [with the double barrel side UNDER the hair – you want the styler to create an “n” or a “c” curve, not a “u” curve.

3) Hold in place for about 20 seconds, unclamp, move down the piece of hair & repeat as many times as necessary to reach the end. My hair length takes about 3 clamps per piece.

4) Take down a new section of hair & repeat until your entire head is done!


…and TA-DA! SO easy, no!?

I really was that happy haha
I really was that happy about it! haha

So much volume, so much curl! Such an easy way to completely transform lame hair! I highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to give their thin & flat hair an all-natural looking boost!  🙂

Have you tried this styling tool before?

Any other tips for thin, flat hair? I’d love to hear them!
