My Thoughts:

I really like the You Wave Ultra by Conair. I find a lot of times when I try to create waves with an iron, my hair always turns into a giant puff ball of crimpy hair. With the You Wave Ultra, I actually ended up with waves and not crimps! Hallelujah! It’s easy to use and easy to control how wavy/and or crimpy you want your hair to be. I also found that it kept my hair looking smooth and sleek. No frizziness in sight! The waver heats up so quick too! It heated up and was ready to use in about 30 seconds. Also, the You Wave Ultra can heat up to 400°F. There are 3 temperature options you can choose from:  Lo, Med, and High. You just slide switch to the setting you prefer. It doesn’t take long either to create waves. You only have to hold for 5 seconds and viola! Waves! An extra plus is that the cord is extra long so you don’t have to worry about tripping or getting caught up in it. Nor is the waver heavy. Give it a try if you’re looking to create beach wavy hair. You can find the You Wave Ultra almost anywhere at mass markets and drugstores.

My Thoughts:

I was able to get this from Ulta for free through their spending rewards club. I really like it and I’m glad I chose this as my reward. If you’re hoping it will create the loose beachy waves, it won’t. The waves it creates is similar to that of the waves you get when you braid your hair. If you have thick hair and a lot of it like me, I wouldn’t use it on every strand/layer of hair. You’ll end up with majorly big hair. I just use it on the top half of my hair. I’ll use it a little bit on the bottom half of my hair just to give the illusion that all of my hair is wavy.  If you’re hair is fine and/or thin, you don’t have to worry about this problem.

It does take a couple of minutes to warm up, but it does really heat up. Be careful when using it because you can burn yourself if you’re not careful because the ends of the barrel don’t have the heat protectant material. I personally wouldn’t pay the full $45 for it because I can just braid my hair and leave it in overnight to get the same waves. However, it’s always on sale for nearly half price (check out Amazon) so get it then.
