Making waves with the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand

My hair is naturally slightly wavy, and lately I’ve been leaning towards wearing it in loose curls rather than straightening it all over.  I might have mentioned it before, but my hair is quite broken due to over-straightening it and I’ve been trying to re-condition it and build it back up again with deep conditioners, supplements and only straightening it every couple of days.  I find that curling it means that (with a lot of hairspray), it stays in for a couple of days (even if they are more like dropped waves the next day) which negates the need to straighten it daily.

I’ve been trying out the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand (£120*) over the last week or so to create different styles, such as curls or waves, beachy hair or big curls. 

I’ve had to really get used to how to use the wand as I’ve previously used stylers with a clip that you clip the hair in with and then wind up to the root.  However, using the creative curl wand you wrap the hair around the barrel of the wand and then hold the wand vertically.  I did find it a bit fiddly at first but I quickly got the hang of it.  It turns on via the button on the wand (and makes a really satisfying noise!) and has an in-built stand for when you’re not using it.  

Like with most curling wands or stylers, you can create waves or curls by simply sectioning your hair, wrapping 1″ sections around the wand and holding it in place for 5-8 seconds, and then alternating curling the sections away from or towards your face.

I still need a lot more practice and where my hair has layers or broken bits it doesn’t look quite as neat as some of the vloggers who do YouTube tutorials who have long, luscious locks, but I’ll get there! I’ve been watching this video to get the hang of using the wand, can I have hair like her thanks please?

Do you use a curling wand to create waves or curls? Have you tried the ghd Curve wand?
