Let’s face it, not everyone is blessed with curly hair. I’m really lucky in that I have coiled curls that grace my long luscious locks, but those that don’t have curls need to improvise some. Since my natural curls are coiled and there are days that I may want softer, larger barrel size curls, I turn to one of my favorite hair tool brands. I have a pretty nice collection of Nume goodies from the Lustrum Set, Classic Reverse Wand and the 25mm Classic Wand so it’s a hair tool line that I truly do enjoy. As I say, when you don’t have them yourself – improvise and Nume has the tools to help with that. Nume celebrates their 5 year anniversary (Happy Birthday Nume!) and with that I want to share with you one of my favorite hair tools and some fun discounts you can utilize to get in on some of this hair tool goodness for yourself.
If you are looking to change up your style some, I definitely suggest the classic wand. I have the 25mm which is a common barrel size and perfect for someone who is a beginner hair tool user or advanced. The Classic Wand has a 100% Tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel and utilizes an innovative clipless design for crease-free curls. Since I naturally have dry hair – it’s great to use a wand instead of a curling iron because the clip can cause creases and with dry hair, it literally can ruin all that work… so I prefer a wand vs. a curling iron. The curling wand has negative ion technology and heats up to 410°F. What I love the most is that with your purchase/order you also get a heat-resistant glove that helps with the curling process. I put emphasis on “heat resistant” because you can still burn your fingers, so use extreme caution still.
Since I have natural curls that tend to be really coiled and tight, I like to brush my hair out with my fingers to soften my natural curls. Using a Flat Iron can help straighten your natural curls prior to adding them back in with the curling wand. Since the Classic Wand has that tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel, when using it on your hair you are locking in shine and your curls will last longer. This type of curling wand is perfect for those beachy waves we all love to rock during the summer months or voluminous glam waves for that night out with the girls or a date. This wand is perfect for use on medium or long hair and since it heats up quickly, it makes the process of creating your perfect waves easy as pie.
To create the soft beachy waves I am sporting today – I finger combed my natural curls so that they were not so tight and then grabbed 1 inch sections of my hair. Starting at various lengths of my hair (some near the root, some near the bottom and the middle of my locks) I added the curl using the Nume 25mm Classic Wand. Once I completed my whole head of hair, I finger combed through my hair once again to pull out the curls so they were not so tight. Since I added the curls to different sections and lengths of my hair, it gave me much needed volume and created a fuller textured look. To set the curls, I added a shine spray and scrunched my hair with some Argan Oil. Since I have thin hair but my hair is long… I need to create more volume and add to the bulk of my hair so I also spray with a light leave-in conditioner and I’m good to go. If you want more curls then texture, you can always skip running your fingers through your hair and leave the curls intact and set with a setting or hair spray. Make sure prior to adding any heat to your hair that you use a heat protectant so that you are protecting your locks from damage.
Creating beautiful locks with curls for days is as easy as moving your arms above your head. It can take a little practice sometimes, but once you find a routine you enjoy – you will find that it is easier than you thought. Since my hair is just about past my butt, it can take me a while to get through my whole head of hair, but it’s all worth it in the end.
