What Hot Tool to Select?
You may curl your wig with a curling iron, a wand, or a straightener. Each tool works fine for creating natural, trendy curls; it’s all about the technique that you use to curl your tresses.
Hair Curling Techniques
Using a curling iron is meant to be a no-brainer task: you wrap the hair around the barrel, let it heat up, and release the strand. Still, you can achieve different results by twisting the strand, clipping the curled lock to let it cool, or rotating the iron.
#1: Flat Wrap with a Curling Iron and Pinning
Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the barrel. Don’t twist the strand, making sure it lays flat on a rod, and give your hair enough time to form a curl.
After you release the strand, cup the coiled curl in your hand, clip it near your head, and let it cool down in this position. This creates a tighter curl and is a great hack to use if you have long, thick hair that wouldn’t hold a curl.
#2: Spiral Curls with a Curling Iron or a Wand
Another method is to wrap the section around the wand, while also twisting it. If you are using a curling iron, don’t put the clip down. This technique creates nice spiral curls, which you may stretch and separate a bit for soft and loose curls that are so popular now.
#3: Nice Ringlets with a Curling Iron
One more method to curl your hair is to wrap the section around the barrel, secure it with a clip, and rotate the curling iron. You may want to curl the end of the strand separately to create a finished look.
#4: Ribbon Curl with a Flat Iron
For technique number five, use a straightener. Secure the strand in the middle of the heating plates, rotate half a turn and slide the flat iron down the section, maintaining a tension. For beautiful and uniform curls, make sure you curl away from your face and slide the iron down at the same speed.
#5: Curling Long Hair with a Flat Iron Full Turn Rotation Technique
The following technique with a flat iron is the best way to curl long hair. Secure the strand between the plates, rotate a full turn, and slide the straightener down as long as you can. Then, release the strand and secure the next part of the section between the plates to repeat the same process. Straighten the ends for a natural look.
Last but not least, do give your human hair a break when you do not use heat to style your hair. Also, a good thing would be to let your human hair wig dry naturally more often and take more care of.
