Jose Eber Curling Wand - Review and Hair Pics!

A friend, whose hair I had loved when she curls it, told me how she did it - she uses a Jose Eber curling wand.  It took me a while to finally buy it because of the high temperature and price, but after seeing her use it (her hair is as long or maybe longer than mine) and her hair not showing any damage over time - I tried it out.  I've tried hot rollers and even hairspray on my hair since having my baby and nothing would curl my hair or it wouldn't stay past 30 minutes or so.  My friend's hair is the same until she came across this wand - so it arrived today and it worked.  I only left it on my hair for literally seconds and I still can't get over how it curled.  I didn't use any hairspray, gel or mouse - just au naturel and it still held.

Here is my hair before (straight) and then after (curled) with this curling iron - by the way, I measured my hair and it grew 6 inches during pregnancy, it is now 44 inches long!


Here are some more shots I did, please excuse my "house dress" - I realized it mid-way through taking pictures and switched outfits lol, just keeping it real....


I took small 1-inch sections of my hair and quickly wrapped them around the wand and let go - probably 5 or 6 seconds total for the whole process.  It took me about 30 minutes to do my whole head this way.  Here is a side-by-side example of the before/after of a section - notice how bouncy the curl is!


Here is an extra shot - I was loving these curls as you can tell!


Then, I combed it out all over and it still stayed, not sure why the middle pic showed my hair a different (lighter) color:



I did this at 2 p.m. and then combed my hair out 3 times throughout the rest of the day.  I also put it in a tight bun on top of my head and took a hot bath and it got wet too.....the curls were still there!  Then, I wore it to church - in the rain - and the curls stayed, though not as tight of course.  Went to the store afterwards in the rain and it is now 11 p.m. at night and I still have curls.......WOW!  With all the water in the bath, the tight bun, the brushing out and the rain TWICE - they should have fallen out, but they didn't.  Amazing.

I will find out if it damaged my hair or not when I wash it Saturday and let it dry - I normally always suffer damage with any kind of heat on my hair.  Even though I've only curled my hair 3-5 times this past year, I suffered damage.  I will be amazed if this really does not damage your hair as a lot of reviewers and my friend says - we shall see.

My husband really liked it but his main concern is damage to my hair or losing my hair, he still forbids me getting a perm, even though I wanted one again lol - I know I lost so much hair a few years ago with it but it sure was voluminous!  He loves long hair......so there is lots to love lately and I'm sitting on it, it gets caught in doorways, people accidentally take it with them when they walk by and I get stares when I go out, and compliments too.  I guess you take the good with the bad.......it is our glory as women!

1 Corinthians 11:14-15

Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?  But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
