Babyliss Curl Secret Review

I much prefer my hair curly than straight – when it’s straight it can look really flat and bland. So I do love to add a curl. However, I don not love the time and effort that this takes me to do. So ever since the Babyliss Curl Secret launched I’ve been dying to get my hands on it to see if it really is the secret to all my straight hair woes.



In case you don’t know what the Babyliss Curl Secret is – it’s a clever little hair gadget from Babyliss that has some sort of spinning magical chamber that all you need to do is pop the hair in (small sections – maybe around an inch or two wise). The chamber sort of sucks up the hair and does all the curling wonders for you without you having to do more than listen for the beeps and release it. Nice and simple – and when it comes to hair, I like simple.

So what’s the trick? Too good to be true? Well, yes and no… Honestly, it is so easy to do and definitely an amazing tool to have. You do need to make sure you take smaller sections or else the hair can easily get a little tangled and not be scooped up right. So if you have thick hair (not a problem I’m blessed with) then might take you a while to do the whole head. It really is super easy.tranquil hair shot



The final result of the hair is quite a naturally curly effect – with curls going in all directions rather than uniform one direction or the other. If you want neat perfect curls, then a wand or tong is probably your best friend. If you want either loose messy texture or naturally curly looking hair then this is your go-to.

I love how easy it is and how even when I’m in a rush I can get my hair done really easily with this. My main tip would be to not load hair with product (I just use a simple volumiser like Aveda Pure Abundance and then finish with hair spray after curling) before using and always take small, brushed through sections. But if you read this thinking I’ve never managed to curl my hair..then this is one for you to try.

    I have this and I’m so disappointed! For the price it’s just not worth it! X

    I just sold my one. I used it twice but it was such a faff around. I have (had at the time before I chopped it) long thick hair and it took so so long and I literally panicked constantly my hair would tangle and then burn off like that girl in the youtube video lols. I bought the GHD Curve last week and am beyond happy with it. I just grab sections of hair twist and hold for 10 seconds and boom loose curls/waves.

      I love the look that Babyliss took gives but I find it’s easier to get with a wand and a little bit of texture spray!

    Anyone whose ever seen naturally curly hair before would not think this looks natural curls aren’t all the same size and diameter if they’re natural

      I don’t think the curls are all the same size and diameter! I def don’t have curly hair so am sure a curly haired person will know much better but I think this looks far more natural than the uniform curls of a wand or tong as they go different directions and some are tighter or looser than others.
