One of my most frequently asked question is how I curl my hair. Here’s a basic hair tutorial to show you how I do it!
How do I curl my hair? Let me show you.
Back in 2016, I made a video of how I curl my hair and shared it here on my blog. I still use the same techniques, so I’m re-sharing the video, even though I use a few different products now.
Which curling iron do I use?
In the video below, I’m using the NUME MAGIC WAND, but that was four years ago it died a year or so after I filmed this video. I replaced it temporarily with a cheap CONAIR CURLING IRON. For under $10, it did the job great, and I actually loved that I could use the clamp to hold my hair, rather than having to hold my hair against the curling wand. I still used the same wrapping techniques around the entire barrel, and then clamped the last little bit.
Last year I upgraded to a T3 CURLING IRON, which is on sale right now during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale if you want to check it out.
I honestly recommend all three of them — they’ve all been great hair tools.
Do I use any products for heat protectant?
YES! I just started using heat protectant a few years ago. I use NAVY HAIR CARE’S WHIRLPOOL MOUSSE. It’s lightweight, and is a styling product and heat protectant. You can use code MERRICK for 20% off any of their products.
Do you still use the same hair products in the video?
I have an updated post HERE with the products I use.
