Tip #1 Use the Right Amount of HeatHow to curl your hair with a curling wand - 7 tips for curling your hair - Happy Stylish Fit

Use higher heat if you have thicker and/or healthier hair, and use lower heat if you have thin and/or damaged hair.

*Lower temperature doesn’t always mean it’s better for you hair. If you’re having to hold hold heat to your hair for longer than 10 seconds than the heat is too low. You end up damaging your hair more because of the increased exposure to heat.

    Thanks for the tips! I curl my hair almost 3 times a week, but on some days the curls just don’t hold that long. So thanks for the tip of cooling the curl in your hand. I’m going to try that next time!
