If ever there was a tool to make curling hair easy it has to be the Enrapture Encode Totem Styler not only does it effectively curl the hair in lighting speed time but due to the various heat zones you can create a multitude of looks from soft waves to tight curls with one tool.
The Enrapture Encode Totem Styler really does make your typical curling wand or tong for that matte seem outdated as along with the various heat zones it also features a tiny flipper (the clamp to keep hair in place which means goodbye to that annoying tell tale crimp at the end of freshly curled hair. For minimal heat damage the Enrapture Encode Totem Styler features a titanium plate which heats up within seconds and does not stick to the hair, rather it glides through hair speeding up the whole process even on long thick hair like my own. In my experience the titanium plate also helps keep the curls in place a little longer than any other plate style meaning you can forgo hairspray should you wish (I don't recommend this is your hair can't keep a curl in any other situation.)
Left to Right: 1-1-2, 2-2-2, 3-3-3
A little more on the three heat settings which you can pick and choose from. 1 is for waves, 2 is for loose curls and 3 for ringlets as mentioned you can pick and chose whatever combination you wish but the suggested methods are 2-2-2 for loose curls, 1-1-2 for soft boho curls/waves and 3-3-3 for tighter curls which I have shown in the images above. The heat settings are controlled by easy to move sliding barrels on the holding area of the tong. For super soft curls/waves 1-1-1 is a great option and my current daily go to look as it works so well with that messy bed head look. As I have thick, long hair in the past curling my hair with a tool of this type could easily take up the best part of an hour but as this heats up so quickly and creates curls in moments a full head of loose curls is now closer to half an hour.
If you are looking for a curling tool that will allow you to create a whole slew of looks the Enrapture Encode Totem Styler should be your next purchase, it is easily the best curling wand of this type I have had the pleasure to trial over the years. There really couldn't be a better time to purchase it as it is currently on offer via Boots!
Now should I purchase the Enrapture Jumbo Waver or not?
