T3 - The Science of Fabulous!
The T3 Twirl 360 has become one of my new favorite hair styling tools! Seriously, gentle reader. I am not blowing smoke up your skirt, here. With it's innovative design, crisp white surface and jewelry like rose gold trim along with the ability to smooth and polish while imparting the soft curls and waves I love to my frizzy, crazy hair this iron has earned it's place on my dressing table.
The T3 Twirl 360 motion sensing, auto rotating styling iron is one of a kind. This baby boasts a patent pending gyroscopic, motion sensing motor. The ceramic and tourmaline coated, ionic infrared energy 1 1/4" barrel ensures even heat down the full length and creates shining curls and waves with the press of a button and a twist of the wrist. Using this beautiful and functional iron couldn't be easier or more fun.
I'll tell you what isn't easy or fun. Using a flat iron to smooth and polish then try to curl my hair. I do fine with the straightening my hair part but in spite of watching a thousand YouTube tutorials and trying, trying, trying, yet again I just can't get the hang of curling my hair with my flat iron. I don't know where my disconnect is. I'm unwilling to further torture my hair trying to find it. I'll just use my T3 Twirl 360.
Operating the T3 Twirl 360 is not at all complicated. I had nearly no learning curve on this iron. I simply plugged it in and hit the Power button. A quick click and I have asked my iron to please twirl my tresses nice and slow and easy. This is a good setting for shorter hair and for beginners. Hold the button for a couple of seconds on power up and permission has been granted for the tool to put the pedal down and wind my hair up at it's max speed. This is a good setting for beauties with longer hair or those with a more practiced hand. Use the speed that is most comfortable for you. I feel the need... The need for speed. (Yes, I am aware that I just dated myself with one of the corniest movie lines. Ever.)
Adjusting the heat setting isn't rocket science, even tho my curling iron was developed using it. Rocket science, I mean! Seriously, this bad boy was designed using aviation technology. My inner nerd loves that. Once my iron is turned on, I simply double click the power button then click until the heat setting is at my desired level. The number of little lights glowing on the handle tells me the heat level. One light is the lowest setting and is appropriate for fine and very delicate hair or perhaps extensions. Five is full on, fire breathing dragon hot! You need some hale, hearty, mad healthy and strong hair to run at that temperature. Five is the heat setting, out of the box. I used this iron for the first time on five and wow! Way too hot for my colour treated tresses. I get on just fine at level three. I achieve the result I want and my hair isn't smoking and smelling a little singed, when I'm done.
Once my iron is powered on and I have set my heat level, it will heat up fast. I just wait for the little lights to shine steady and I am set to roll. Now, here comes the fun part, gentle reader. I first divide my hair into thirds, from the crown, down and clip up two of the big sections. I apply some heat protectant and a spritz of curl spray to the section left free, brush it through and pick out a tress the size of the curl that I want to create. Since I like to straighten a bit then curl, I press the hair in the mid length clamp on the barrel of my iron, run it down the length then I set it, once again in the clamp at the end, hold the iron up in the direction I want my curl to form and press the twirl button. As the iron spins my hair up onto it's self, I pull gently against it, putting a little torque on the hair to get a better curl and even more smoothing and polish.
I like to leave my hair wound up on the barrel for about fifteen - ish seconds. To set my hair free, I press the wide thumb clamp lever, release the curl and spray it lightly with hairspray and place it back over my shoulder out of the way and move on to the next section of hair. If necessary, I can secure the curls back with a sectioning clip. I repeat this procedure, letting down each big section as I finish the last one until all of my hair is curled. I let my curls curls cool for a few minutes then gently brush my hair with my paddle brush and fluff a little at the crown with my fingers. Once I got the hang of operating this iron, the process goes quickly. I can do all of my hair in just a few minutes and I have the result I'm after; smooth, polished hair with soft waves and lots of bounce and body.
Before: My hair is blown dry with the usual smoothing products. Still frizzy, pouffy and crazy looking. No bueno! Yes, I have inches of grey roots. It's been a while since my last salon visit. I tried to get in before I had to get this post up but what with one thing and another, nope... My colour is jacked. And the random daisies? One of my favorite old chairs that is sadly in need of re covering is lurking in my background. Trust me, you don't want to see that ugly thing!
And my hair, after a quick go round with my T3 Twirl 360. See how it now looks like soft, shiny hair, not combed out steel wool? I could just do a happy dance!
I really like this styling iron. It's easy to use, it's teched up just enough to make it a ton of fun to operate, it does it's job beautifully and it looks damned sharp, too! If you like big, soft curls and waves and lots of shine, this iron will be your hair's new spirit animal.
If you are thinking that you would like one of these innovative curling irons for your very own, you can find them at Sephora.
