Remington Keratin Therapy Pro Volume - c/o Remington.

Say hello to my new favourite styling tool! The Remington Keratin Therapy Pro Volume Brush styler. I've wanted one of these hair tools ever since I saw Julies everyday hair routine video. Who doesn't want an easy to use appliance that gives you that 'blow dried just out of the salon' look. Not only do you look nice and polished, you just achieve so much volume from a good blow dry. Unfortunately because I am so cack handed I really fail at blow drying my hair properly into a 'style' with a round brush and hairdryer. So the Remington Keratin Therapy pro volume is a welcome addition to my hair tool stash.

Okay so onto the facts... The barrel is pretty large as I expected, 45mm to be exact. As you can see in the images above the plastic bristles are mixed in sizes, ensuring that you have get a good hold on your locks when using the tool. The keratin ceramic plates have a number of pros about them, firstly by having the ceramic coating it means that they condition your hair while styling. You don't fry your hair as much as you would using other tools. I try not to use heat on my hair that often these days, however when I do sometimes I do get that feeling that I've just sucked the life out of my hair and instantly regret deciding to do something with it! It also has two heat settings 120 or 180. It's not too bad at heating up quickly once switched on, but then it isn't the fastest hair tool I've tried. One thing I do love about it - purely because in the mornings I'm still half asleep when leaving for work, and forget things - is that it has an automatic shut off after 60 mins. Result! I wont be burning down the new place, if I leave it on when I'm done in the mornings!

Whats the best way to use it? Well I simply spritz my hair with a heat protectant and section it, starting with the bottom of my hair. I then split that into 4 smaller sections. I find working with smaller sections of hair a lot easier. I did try bigger ones at first, however I found I got the hair stuck in the brush. This then led to me sitting there annoyed with myself that I'd gone in all guns blazing for a 'quick style' rather than taking my time and doing it right!
So once you have your sections, I take the brush and curl/wind the brush in the direction towards my face. This way I achieve more of a Kate Middleton look rather than Farrah Fawcett! You don't have to hold it in position for too long. My one tip would be to make sure the bottom bristles are away from the other bits of hair on your head or else when you unravel the brush you might get it stuck and then you will be a tangled mess! The added bonus of the bristles though is that you can sort of rest it on your head while it heats and you wont burn yourself, its like a barrier. Once I've gone through all the sections of my hair and finished with the Remington Keratin Therapy Pro Volume Styler, I shake my hair about, run my fingers through it. Mess it up a bit. This makes it look a little 'less done' which is the look I prefer.  Then spritz with hairspray!


As you can see above I achieved a lot of volume in my hair! By using this tool it really shows off the layers I have had cut in, it has given me some amazing volume therefore it is definitley doing what is says on the tin box. I guess you could stay this particular styler gives you the same sort of look as hair rollers however - in my opinion - is easier to use, The whole process takes me less than 10 minutes to complete the entire look, so its perfect for in the mornings or if Im going out on a spontanious meal in the evening and want to look like I've made a bit of an effort!

Now the best part. The pro volume styler isn't expensive AT ALL, it is currently on offer at Boots for £22.99. Even if there arent any deals about you can still pick it up for less than £30. Compared to some other tools on the market that is such a good price. What would stop you going and purchasing?

Much Love,
