CoCo LoCo Long Tong | Review

Please Follow Me On Bloglovin'

Hi Everyone!

What a week and a half! I've had no internet, my laptop inexplicably fell into a pool of milk and I was struck down with the illness from hell, but nevermind, I digress.

I've made it through the 1950s (as in, no internet, totally not being dramatic here) and arrived back in 2017 with my milky laptop, my bag of medicine (ref: illness from hell) and a review of my cracking new curling tong from Lee Stafford.

Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Long Tong - try saying that without smiling, it's a challenge.




"Is that a blush pink and rose gold colour combo?" I hear you cry, yes my friends, yes it is.

The CoCo LoCo Long Tong features a 40% longer barrel to make it even easier to curl long hair, my hair is currently pretty short so I don't have too much of a worry but when it was long last year I had endless trouble trying to find something to add a bit of curl into my normally straight hair - where were you Lee Stafford? I needed you!

Now for the interesting bit, the barrel is actually infused with coconut oil that heats up when styling to give you silky soft hair at the finish, I've never heard of anything like this before so I was pretty interested to find out if it worked (ok let's be honest, I wanted to know if it smelled weird or if it made my hair sticky) I'm pleased to report there was no strange smells and my hair didn't feel coated in anything but it was pretty soft.

I will say that I'm going to need more practice using the wand, it heats up to a very hot 200 degrees celsius and, as I'm a complete amature with curling wands, I had to use the clamp which I found left a strange kink in my hair on some strands, I know I used to be able to use a curling tong waaaaaaaayyyyyy back when so I'm sure I'll be able to sort out this little kink (literally) when I recall how I used to be able to wrap hair around the barrel without deploying the clamp.

As you're probably aware if you come to this blog a lot, I like my hair messy, I'm not too into perfect hair so I always massively mess up any style I do and below are the results after I'd curled my hair, brushed out some of the curls (but not all... this adds to the kind of messy 'don't care' look I like) then I scrunched my hair about a bit so it was even more messy and finally I was happy, pics are below.




My love for curls has been replenished and I can't wait to start curling my hair again now.

So things I liked:
  • The colour scheme - I mean... stunning right?
  • The coconut oil infused barrel, could be a little gimmicky but I love me a bit of 'extra', you know?
  • Swivel Cord - it turns as you curl your hair meaning you don't wrap yourself up as you go.
  • The thumb grip on the clamp handle, it just made it easier
  • It heats up really quickly.
Things I didn't like so much:
  • The clamp, as I said, my hair is really fine so it left a kink when I used it, I really need to remember how to wrap hair around a barrel in the mirror and cut out the clamp in the future.
Overall, I've really enjoyed using this Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Long Tong   and I can't wait to keep practicing with it to get back to being the curling queen I was in my teens. You can pick this up on Amazon for £29.99 but it is currently on offer for £24.99, just a little heads up there.

Will you be trying this? Do you like curly hair? Will I ever regain my skills?

Speak to you all soon.

  4. The colour of this is gorg!! Your hair looks so good, I definitely need to find a new curling wand soon, I'll have to look into this one. I don't know if it's possible with this wand but I usually unscrew the clamp and take it off because it annoys me and makes my hair kink, like you said, but then you have to watch your fingers or you can end up with some pretty bad burns (speaking from experience... :/ ) xx

  35. Blush pink and rose gold? Eeep, totally *Heart-eyed over here*. Looking gorgeous Rosy, I love the effect of the curls on you, seriously stunning! Also loving the sound of the coconut oil, a really interesting twist on usual curlers and one I haven't heard of before either. I am absolutely useless at curling my hair but really want to try and master the curling tong tool sometime as it'd be nice to do some beachy waves for summertime! <3

  51. A milky laptop. Nothing worse. About 2 years ago, my laptop life was: have no laptop for a month (sent it to repair), have it back for A WEEK, no laptop for a month again... well... a nightmare

    I loved the colour of the curling iron and the way your hair turned out

    I don't know if my hair can hold a curl...I mean: decently.
    I used to wear rolls sometime ago, but now it just doesn't hold. It's frustrating. Maybe I should try a curling iron to see if it holds better.

  54. OK, I'm weirded out and amazed by the oils inside :O how great is that?
    Also, I have the curler with a clamp and I heard a lot of people complaining about it, but I actually like it. The thing is you have to twist your hair some more once you've clamped and curled your hair around it. (I'm not explaining this well I know haha)

    anyway, your hair looks so great with this style !

    Apart from the a little bit corny name, I think this curling iron is great. The color is stunning and I've never heard of a curling iron with a coconut oil-infused barrel. I think this is especially good for people with dry hair.
