Oooh this is some lovely news I think! In fact I haven’t been this excited about a new hair gadget since the wonder of the all singing, all dancing Curl Secret!! So what we are looking at here are next generation heated rollers, AKA the BaByliss Curl Pods, and I love them!! Here’s the low down.
Now I gave these a very quick, minimal effort test, and it’s instant love. They are so easy to use, create the most beautiful curl and movement in the hair, and they don’t put too much heat stress on your precious locks. Perfect!
BaByliss Curl Pods Features
- Pods have a unique all in one design
- No need for clamps or clips
- 18 large curl pods
- Neat unit with carry handle
- Ultra fast heat up
- 1.8m cord
- Velvet storage pouch for extra pods
When I first saw this little set, my eyes lit up!! It is such a clever idea and it really does work. It is so much less fiddly than traditional heated rollers so you need even less skill to get a gorgeous result.
I had a really quick try and wrapped my hair around the pods in fairly big sections and literally left them in for about 5 minutes to cool and set. It’s an easy process. You simple take a section of hair, hold the pod halfway down the length of the section and start to wrap the hair around. When you get to the ends, tuck them in and continue to roll up the hair to where ever you want the curl or wave to start. You then close the pod and it’s done. I worked round my hair and had them all in within about 5-10 minutes. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
If you need extra pods, you can simply pop the spares into the gaps you leave as you go.
Because I was giving it a quick try, I didn’t leave them in too long to set, so got a nice soft movement. The longer you leave them, the more the curl will form and the longer the style will last. Simple! Also, I feel like it is a much gentler heat than a tong or wand and they leave a nice shine on my hair.
