There have been a lot of hilarious product names in the four years we've been blogging, but I think this one definitely takes the prize for best sense of humor. NuMe Professional Styling Products have released two new items - the 3Sum and the 4Play and I had the delight of checking out the 3Sum (quite possibly best sentence I've ever typed). The 3Sum comes with a full-size curling wand, full-size flat iron and a mini flat-iron (adorably perfect for travel, yet as powerful as any full-size I've ever used). I have always been a fan of the flat iron which either can make my straight hair happily frizz-free or will give it wavy body and these tools from NuMe are the real deal. Both the full-size and the mini heat up in just a few seconds (seriously, only seconds) and both have 100% tourmaline-infused ceramic plates and these neat swivel power cords which helped me to not get all tangled while I worked. I was so impressed with how quickly and easily my hair was straightened (I mean stick straight!) and also how stress-free it was for me to get some awesome body (I love using a flat iron to flip my layers). The mini was especially surprising for me because it's very small but it packs a seriously powerful punch (was able to straighten my hair just as well as the full-size - just took a bit longer because obviously the plates are smaller). The last tool in the 3Sum (chuckle chuckle) is the curling wand which actually scared me because I had never used one before (yep, I was staring at this no-clip curling iron and wondering how the heck I would do this without burning myself). NuMe thought ahead for novices like myself and included a glove with the set so I felt a bit more at ease wrapping my hair around the wand. Like the flat irons, the wand heated extremely quickly (I can't stress enough how quickly these heat - no need to step away and make your coffee like the old school tools). The wand is extremely smooth and leaves the softest curls and waves. It took a bit of practice for me to get the trick down of wrapping my hair, but once I did the results are fantastic. What a great product - not sure how my hair has lived without it actually. The 3Sum really is a great set for anyone who does not have professional hair tools. If you don't want to shell out for the three products, then check out their site because each of the great products is sold separately, as well (just not in the same cool pattern as my 3Sum - purple zebra! and also the three-set is a much better deal money-wise.) Also, the lovely peeps at NuMe have offered our readers this exclusive discount which is ridiculously amazing (I'm not even going to tell you the % because it's a treat to find out when you plug it into their site). Use code ProductWhores11 through 12/9/11 and you'll get a huge discount on any of their curling wands. It's almost the holidays and you'd definitely be a superstar if you gave this to someone. Plus, if for nothing else, imagine the laughter and surprise on Christmas morning when you give your mom 4Play or a 3Sum. Makes me laugh just thinking about it.
