I figure I'd ask this here vs. the other section.  And yes, I've searched.  I've seen post on using the curling wand, but not on curly hair. And if I add "cone" to it, I get posts about silicons. Le Sigh.

The best way to describe to look is I guess like Taylor Swift (don't like the chic and her fake surprise no singing azz, but her hair is cute)


Or similar to this:  

  Wanted to know the following:

  • Can I use a curling wand on curly hair
  • Do I have to straighten 1st (I'm guessing no)
  • Should I just use flexirods and do a dry set using some wrap lotion and save $ on wand?
I guess I think at times, I'd like a more refined curl pattern.
I want it to be versatile.  Haven't gotten hair yet, but thinking of all the ways I can do it - straight, curly, barrel curls...  it'll be Malaysian curly 18",20", and 22".


Any advice would be appreciated. I'm not a professional.  I know it can be done, I guess I need to know best method.

No. Just curl it in little sections. Straightening it out will make it limp, curling curly hair will give it body. 

I curled this hair with a regular small barrel iron. It's an *in the process* photo...


I curled this hair with a wand, and it was already curly.

Thank you, ma'am.  I saw it at different places and I was lie WTH?  But it'll be better than what i did w/my quick weaves and weaves in past:  set on hot curlers & use a heat protectant, then put on flexirods - never got this result. Cute curls, but not like this.


Appreciate it!

If you really don't want to financially commit to getting a curling wand, flexi rods can give you the different varieties you're looking for.  From my experience, depending on the size rods you get, how you roll them, whether or not you use product, and what product you use,  you can get anywhere from small spiral candy curl like curls, to big flowing loose waves.

You don't have to get too pricy a curling wand to get great results tho.  Over the last few days, I've learned my little $25 curling wand from Target is THEE BIZ lol.
