When they asked me if I wanted to try out the I.C.O.N. products I was quite curious. I hadn’t heard of the brand but as I love to discover new brands, I enthusiastically said yes. I tried out the range for a month and I’ll tell you more about it.
Are you one of those girls that loves to experiment with her hair? One day straight, the other day a ponytail and the next day curls? Then this Babyliss Smooth & Wave is your match made in heaven!
Curls or straight, you choose!
The Smooth & Wave is a device that you can use for both sleek hair and for wavy curls. Babyliss already has a bunch of straighteners (with this one being my favorite) and curling irons (with the Curl Secret being the most famous) but now they launched a curl iron and straightener in one – for those girls who can’t choose!
How to use?
The device is easy to use, you can first select if you want curls or straight hair. When you decide to go for a wavy look, you can choose the direction of your curls. Either left, right or random. At last, you can decide the temperature based on your hair. If you straighten your hair you have to run the device over your hair. It first gets sucked in and then you have to move it down. When you make curls your hair also gets ‘sucked in’, you have to wait 8 beeps until the signal says your curl is ready. Take it out carefully and let it rest.
A lot of people say that this technology gets your hair stuck in the device. I have tested both the Curl Secret and the Smooth & Wave and never had such an issue. When I take too much hair the device just gives an error signal and stops working.
I straighten my hair on a daily basis, but I don’t think I will use the Smooth & Wave for this job. It’s difficult to straighten the small hairs or the curls close to my head. When you just want to smooth your hair a bit and not take out all your curls I think it works well, but for a real curlyhead like me the straightener is a bit too difficult to use. I love the curler however, it works really well, even on shoulder-length hair. It’s so difficult to make curls but the Smooth & Wave makes easy and pretty curls. I think it takes around 10 minutes to do my whole hair.
So as a conclusion, if you want a good curling iron and sometimes need a straightener for some small touch ups, then this is the perfect device for you. If you straighten your hair daily I would advice to just buy the Curl Secret.

My hair is naturally curly, but I’ve straightened my hair ever since I was 14. Since I have been doing it for such a long time, I’m always on the lookout for the best straightening tools to protect my hair – this time I got to try the Singlepass Luxe styling and straightening tool from T3 Micro, curious about the verdict?
As some of you might know, I have dreamt about long hair my whole life. So when I got to try out the new Kérastase Extentioniste protocol for longer and stronger hair – I couldn’t wait to try it out. Read my honest review about the protocol right here!
Beauty. One of my absolute first loves (well, after playing with dolls that is). Lately, we’ve become more and more aware of the importance of good products. Beauty products which are full of biological ingredients and free of animal testing (especially the last one is close to my heart!). And Bio Wink! is one of those Belgian suppliers offering you all those good brands under one roof!
Bumble & bumble is één van die haarmerken die weten wat wij vrouwen nodig hebben: bescherming en herstel. Met de Save the day lijn zie ik mijn haar met rasse schreden vooruit gaan – zeker het While you sleep masker is magisch!
Soms zijn er perspakketjes die je echt blij maken. Omdat Schwarzkopf namelijk een volledig nieuwe lijn op de markt bracht mocht ik al de producten ontdekken. Heel wat uittestplezier dus. De Beology lijn bestaat uit drie gamma’s, ik stel ze jullie graag voor!
December staat gelijk aan stress om kerstcadeaus. Ik vind het altijd zo moeilijk om het perfecte cadeau te vinden voor iemand omdat ik ook wil dat ze er écht blij om zijn. Twee jaar geleden kreeg ik van mijn vriend het àllerbeste cadeau, een Steampod. Als jij je haar vaak stijlt of iemand weet die dit regelmatig doet, dit is hét cadeau dat je moet geven. Waarom? Dat leg ik je graag uit!
Onlangs kreeg ik van Kérastase de Fusio-dose homelab thuis gestuurd, een thuisbehandeling specifiek afgesteld op wat jouw haar nodig heeft. En ik ga eerlijk zijn, nog nooit ben ik zo tevreden geweest over een product!
Nothing better than the smell of coconut on my body, an absolute summer feeling and it has great nourishing qualities too. Garnier loves this fruit as well and that’s why they made three different lines with it. Totally coconut crazy about them!
