Review: Babyliss – Curl Secret Ionic C1200E

Perhaps you have ever wondered why I always wear straight open hair. The answer is simple, I’m super awkward in handling curlers, curling irons & Co. Therefore, I was very curios about the Babyliss Curl Secret Ionic – C1200E.  But I’m thrilled, the Curl Secret does almost everything for you, a great thing for all Hairstyling novices.

First, I recommend you to read the manual, also on the website of Babyliss or Youtube you could watch 2-3 videos to understand it better. Pay particular attention to handling. The Curl Secret offers various settings for heat regulation, curling and timing. It depends on the hair type, whether you should set 8 seconds or 12 seconds and also regarding the temperature. Basically I would say the thicker and more unruly your hair is the higher level is needed. It is best to try it out with your hair type. I personally have very fine and straight hair.


Before use, make sure to incorporate a heat protection spray into your hair. As soon as the luminaire is no longer flashing, it is ready for use. Now always take small strands, really not too big, separate and put into the device. Depending on where you want to have the curls more up or down. In my first attempt the procedure lasted about 15-20 min incl. preparation of the device.


The Curl Ionic makes really pretty curls without much effort.

    Wie lange hast du bei deinem ersten Versuch gebraucht? Ging es schneller als mit einem Lockenstab (bzw. als mit einem Glätteisen Locken zu machen)?
    Ich finde das Teil ja echt interessant, vor allem sehen deine Locken schon beim ersten Versuch toll aus 🙂

      Ja eben ca 15 – 20 min. Ich komme eben mit dem Lockenstab so gar nicht klar, finde das Ergebnis hier wirklich besser. Toll ist es, dass man es so einstellen kann, dass die Locken immer die Richtung wechseln.

      Liebe Grüsse
