Back To Basics: How I Curl My Hair

I’m back with another highly requested post on how I curl my hair. Not long ago, you will have seen me post a picture or two of me wearing curly hair on social media. It’s not often I curl my hair (mainly because it’s so much effort), but when I do, I find myself using one same tool over and over.

There’s no big secret to how I achieve my curls besides the tool that I use. That tool being the Baby Curls Curling Wand by Herstyler. It features a 13mm ceramic and tourmaline barrel.

This bad boy was purchased years ago at a stall in my local shopping centre. At the time they were going for around £100 (God knows why) and my mother managed to nab it for £70. I believe they are only available online now but are way cheaper than what they used to be.

There isn’t really a certain technique I use to achieve the curls I have other than just curling small strands of hair (sometimes alternating the curl) and separating the curls when I have finished curling my hair.

Unfortunately, I can’t provide the temperature this curling wand heats up to (I can’t find this information anywhere). Just know that when it heats up, it heats up. I believe this is why Baby Curls by Herstyler is more powerful than other curling wands. It can heat up to the desired temperature within a minute and there are no heat settings. I’ve been able to wear my curls for up to four days before. Because this curling wand heats up to such an intense temperature, you have to take extra precaution. My curling wand came with a protective glove although when using it I still managed to burn myself a couple of times due to clumsiness!

 

Above I have shown a mini demo of the curls that the Baby Curls curling wand can create. In the third image I used different sized strands of hair to create slightly different curls and alternated how tight the curls were when placing my hair on the wand. I just repeat these steps over and over until my whole head is done. There’s really not much to it!

It takes me around two hours to curl my hair. Because it’s such a tedious process I rarely curly my hair anymore but when I do, I love using this wand and separating the curls to create a more natural look with more volume.

Here is the finished look!

If you’d like tighter curls than this wand provides, the Lee Stafford Chopstick Styler is amazing for just a fraction of the price. The results I’ve seen are gorgeous!

I hope this helps those who have asked me what I do to get my hair like this. I apologise for it being so late as well as the lack of posts. I have been very busy with work lately!

Until next time, take care my loves :kiss:
