T-H-X(Total Hair Experts) is a range of hair styling products that are exclusively available at Tesco. The range includes hair dryers, curling tongs, hair straighteners, hair stylers and the THX Total Hair Experts Define Style Deep Barrel Waver which I was lucky enough to trial recently.

The THX Total Hair Experts Define Style Deep Barrel Waver helps you to create vintage waves effortlessly and in no time. I always envied the picture perfect waves that ladies sported on telly and would wonder the amount of effort and time that would be spent achieving the look. But with the THX Deep Barrel Waver at my disposal I learnt that it is not only quick but easy-peasy as well. I have never been so excited to try out a hair styling product. Gosh, I am loving the THX Deep Barrel Waver. Suddenly I wish that I had not chopped off my hair to shoulder length. Long hair would have looked so lovely with waves. I want my hair to grow back soon.

Coming back to the THX Deep Barrel Waver - it works nicely. It has ceramic plates which are like waves. There is an adjustable temperature range from 140º to 210º. It warms up pretty quickly and is easy to use. You divide your hair into sections and feed one section at a time into the waver. Press the handles and hold the hair in the waver for around half a minute. If your hair is fine or you want loose waves then you can reduce the time. For my thick straightened hair, I did not have to hold it in long.  Around 15-20 seconds and it added a lovely wave. It will depend on your hair type and condition also though. But in any case it takes much less time than most other stylers. For my shoulder length hair I went from straight to wavy in about 15 minutes. This was the first time I have used a crimper/waver myself at home, so I still do not have the knack of doing it quickly :) But am sure with regular use, I will soon get the hang of it. When I tried it the very first time, it took me long and the shape of the style looked a bit weird. But a little bit of brushing and it was fine. It settled into lovely waves. I will be trying it out on my cousin who have lovely long tresses. Will post an update later on about that.

The THX Deep Barrel Waver feels a bit on the heavier side. My other styling products are quite light compared to this one, but that fine. I like its adjustable heat control feature the most. There are some other small issues that have been taken care of and I like the thought that THX have put into the product. For example, there is a hanging loop which comes in quite handy. The cord length is 2 metres which is perfect as it gives me more flexibility to hold the product as I wish. Another main plus point is that the THX Deep Barrel Waver doesn't seem to dry my hair as much as other products. This could be probably due to the fact that it works much quicker than other products.

On all the occasions that I have used the Deep Barrel Waver my 'vintage-y' waves have held up until I washed my hair out. Given that my hair has a mind of its own and most styling gadgets do not give results that last this long, I am impressed. The THX Deep Barrel Waver usually retails for £35.00 on but is currently on offer for £23.00 which is a very good price I feel. if you are looking for a easy to use waver, then this one is well worth buying.
