After a few responses from a previous post ( http://forum.blackhairmedia.comew-holly-italian-yaki-unit_topic338925. - http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/new-holly-italian-yaki-unit_topic338925.html) I decided to add some color to my unit. I previously could not curl her, but I realized that my FHI was not hot enough to straighten her, so I purchased a curling wand and it does a great job of producing curls. I do not like to sleep in a lot of rollers, so I usually will use a curling wand when I wash her weekly, and "roll" her with my fingers ("pin curls") and use a bobby pin to secure her in place. Here is a pic for reference:
The curls will usually be tight for a few days and then relax the longer I go without washing her. I am very satisfied with this unit. Holly has been really coming through for me with my last 4 purchases. So, enjoy the pics, and please leave any comments, as I am always looking for ways to improve, so criticism is wecome!
