Nova Hair Curling Iron NHC-471SC

Hi everybody,

Today I will be reviewing a hair curling iron from Nova which I bought last year. I used it till the time I got my hair permanently straightened. Let’s check out how it fared:

My experience with Nova Hair Curling Iron NHC-471SC:

My hair is extremely frizzy, thick and wavy but I always wanted perfect curls. Few years back when I was doing this personal grooming course from VLCC I came across this brand. After their recommendation I bought both the hair curling iron and hair straightener from Nova.

The size of the hair curling iron is too big so not recommendable for travel. The iron barrel gets heated within 2 to 3 minutes although no specification is given regarding ceramic coating or coverage. There is a high and low temperature switch to adjust the temperature accordingly. I have used it on dry hair after applying heat protection spray. It is very easy to use, you just have to roll your hair in the barrel and then close it with the shaft and after 10 to 15 seconds release your hair from the barrel in outward direction. It gave me soft curls but I had to use a hair spray to keep it intact. The curls longed for a good 4 hours. Although I got the desired curls but it didn’t give me salon like finish and neither did I expect it from such a low priced product. There are plenty of hair curlers better than this available in the market but is pretty expensive compared to this.

Lastly I would say that it is just an average product that you can buy if you don’t want to spend a huge amount of money.

Pros of Nova Hair Curling Iron NHC-471SC:

• Quick Heating
• Easy to use
• Very affordable
• High low switch to adjust the temperature accordingly
• Good to create soft curls

• Not much specification given about the product

Will I recommend Nova Hair Curling Iron NHC-471SC:

I would say yes to people who are looking for a cheap curling iron. But then you can’t expect it to be perfect and give you the salon like finish.
