I am happy with my purchase of the curling wand of Xtava Twist. Therefore, the packaging was beautiful, an elegant black box with a beautiful writing, and the wand was packaged well. I think it was a bit excessive. This is a great gift idea, because it seems that it costs much more, then it does. What leads me to wonder if the budget was towards packing! -The wand takes a little time to heat (a little more than my flat iron) .- The wand is easy to use because the cable is connected to a rotary device, so that it does not rotate and turn (and, therefore, Damage) The electric cable. The wider barrel is ideal for hair that is beyond the shoulder length. Anything shorter gives you a good elevator and a blow, but not a real Curl. I'm going to buy this again and I'll recommend it.
