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.

I think I'm gonna get the wand.  LOL.

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!

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.
