Nicky Clarke Hair Therapy Digital Tong

Can you believe this is my first tong with a clasp? It is shocking considering I curl my hair literally every single day. Without fail. Since 4 years now. It's my permanent hairstyle I'm not even joking. When I don't have my curl on, I look so different and there have been instances when people haven't recognised me.

Exaggeration aside, I love this slim beaut. It's quite a refreshing change from the GHD's which can sometime pull and drag through hair whilst creating a curl and less dangerous than the clasp free conical wands that I have a penchant for.

I like the fact that is has different temperature settings. Like all other people I am always tempted to keep it  to the highest but if you're someone who wants a softer curl, has very fine hair which can easily mould and hold a curl, go ahead and use a lower setting. It will also damage your hair less in the long term if you plan to use it frequently. Although that should never be an option. Load up on that heat protection spray peeps! Tonnes of it I say.

Another thing I like about it is that it's quite flexible in the sense that you can create both tight spiral curls, wide curls and waves, depending on whether you hold it vertically or horizontally. A very simple trick is to leave the curl in the clasp for 10 seconds for a tight curl and 5 seconds for a messy, beach wave. It does get heated quite quickly, reaching up to a good 220 degrees so just a few seconds and it will give the straightest of hair a nice glossy curl.

Excuse the breakage in mums hair here as she has got it coloured recently which obviously dries hair out. If you can look past that, the tong has created such beautiful yet easy beach waves and this literally took me 10 minutes to do it for her. It stayed on for two days as well and being a lover of poker straight hair, this is the first time she has really appreciated some texture and curl in her hair. Two thumbs up!

If you're looking for a simple, fuss free, easy to use tong that will create versatile curls and waves, not break the bank and actually curl your poker straight hair that won't fall straight within minutes, give this one a try. It know there's tonnes of these in the market right now but it's effective compared to them all. Trust me, I have a bucket full of hair tools.
