So the other day I was looking into buying a curling wand. I was looking and looking and thought "Gosh I do not want to spend fifty bucks on a new iron when I already have one". I just couldn't justify it. My curling iron works just fine, but I don't like to curl my hair with the clamp anymore. It makes a different curl when you don't use the clamp. It's more of a beachy wave than a fancy curl. So I thought, "hm mm I bet I could just make my own"! So I did!
Here is how I did it!
This is how I started, with just a regular Conair curling iron.
I took this screw driver
I unscrewed both sides of the curling iron like this
Once I unscrewed both the screws. I took the whole clamp off the top. It pretty much just popped right off. This spring is what was underneath the clamp.
I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but the spring is also screwed into the iron. I also had to unscrew this from the iron.
And Viola I have my very own curling wand WITHOUT spending any money!!
I am so glad I tried this out! It was super easy and I didn't have to spend any money! If you are like me and like the curling wand better and don't want to spend money on a new one, I would try this out!! It took me maybe 2 minutes to do everything!
Hope you guys enjoyed!!
