NuMe have kindly sent me their very popular 32mm curling wand recently! I was so excited since I've never actually used a wand like this before (been strictly using a GHD straightener for curls since 2007! see my GHD tutorial here) so I couldn't wait to see the results I would get from this tool.
In this packaged tube, I received a heat-resistant glove, NuMe argan oil, and the NuMe 32mm magic curling wand.
Make sure you prep your hair by spraying with a heat protectant (I used mine from Big Sexy Hair). Then put on your heat resistant glove, and wear it on the hand that is twisting the hair onto the wand. You don't have to put it on, but I recommend putting it on because it's easy to accidentally touch the hot tip of the wand.
Turn the wand on by pressing down on the 'on' button for a few seconds. When it's off, the wand will flash 'off' so you can easily tell when it's not heating up.
Simply twist a section of hair around the wand, and let go after 15-20 seconds. The longer you leave it on, the tighter the curl will be. I left the first curl on for a bit longer and you can see the length difference with the rest of my hair.
I'm pretty lazy/impatient and luckily this means my curls tend to end up being more loose and wavy which I prefer, so it works out for me! On the right picture you can see how I achieved loose, carefree curls on one side of my hair. You can play around with how long you leave the hot wand in your hair, and the results you achieve afterwards.
After doing both sides and being satisfied with my curls, I applied the NuMe argan oil that came in the kit. As with all argan oils, I just put a little bit on my palms and applied it all throughout my hair (especially the top, my hair is so prone to frizz!)
I used the 32mm magic wand from NuMe which comes in black, pink and turquoise. NuMe also offer a variety of other hair styling tools such as the 25mm magic wand option here.
