This past summer I had went out of town to visit family in St. Louis. Assuming I packed everything I needed for my stay, I forgot to bring my curling iron but it wasn't that big of a problem as I know I can find a store in the city that sells curling irons. I did not want to buy any expensive ones since I was buying a temporary one.
I visit Walgreens to find one that were the right size for my short length hair and found what I was looking for, Revlon Studio 35 Professional Styling Iron for only six bucks, coudn't beat that price. The iron had a high and low settings 1/2 inch barrel, a safety stand and a tangle free cord which was good since I had problems with other curling irons tangling up.
The next morning, I turned the iron high; to make sure I have enough heat to really curl my hair. After a few minutes, I touched the iron a bit to if it had enough heat, it didn't. I didn't want to waste anymore time waiting for the iron to improve its degree so I styled my hair. The iron slightly curled my hair and if I really wanted curls, the iron had to stay on my hair at least for 40-50 seconds for anything to be done.
Revlon Styling Iron wasn't a professional and surely didn't style my hair the right way. But hey, at least I can say the cord didn't tangle up at all.
