Time to be 100% honest with you guys. I tried the CHI spin and curl and grew SUPER frustrated! I just couldn’t get it! And I knew it works because my hairdresser used it on me with success. BUT- I was using it wrong.
Okay, so the first time I tried it it was a HUGE fail. I tried it for like three hours and all I gained was a slightly bent hair strand…
BUT! After failed attempts, numerous video tutorials and several DMs about it later, I GOT IT!
I’LL BREAK DOWN THE PROCESS:
Start with treated hair (ALWAYS spray heat protectant on hair you’re about to style.
I separate my hair into two smaller sections-this makes it easier to manage.
Separate your hair into smaller < 1-inch sections, brush it out and place the small section in the device (no it won’t pull your hair- I promise).
It’ll suck the hair strand into the curling area and 15-19 seconds later, the device will beep 4 times alerting you that the hair strand is ready to be released.
One BIG problem I encountered was not putting this side towards my head
Just pull the device down to release the strand of hair. It’s not wound tight so you don’t have to pull hard.
Keep going around your head until all the hair is curled! Once I figured it out, it was SO easy.
Head to my IG and click on my beauty highlights to view the videos (my plugin for videos isn’t working for some reason).
It won’t pull or tangle your hair! The spin and curl will stop working and beep incessantly if you put too much hair into the device.
Want looser curls? Put more hair in the device (but still less than 1 inch!).
Since my hair is SUPER thick, it took a while to curl all of my hair. That being said, my arm usually gets tired from holding up the device-it didn’t!
