My hair is all one length and it goes down to the middle of my back. I love my hair but I nee to do something different with it. I've been trying out the wand curler to get curls but for some reason my hait just won't hold and I can't seem to get the curls big like them. Any ideas?
Try pin curls, flexi rods or bantu knots for pretty curls and waves. They're pretty easy to do and they're all heat free so no damage! There's plenty of tutorials for them on youtube!
Maybe your heat setting needs to be higher? Just remember to use heat protectant! If your willing to invest in a curling iron, try Hot Tools. They can be really expensive but they really work on hard to curl hair! Another tip I have is to wash your hair the night before you curl it. The natural oils in your hair will help to hold the curl so it lasts longer(:
My hair is the same way! So straight and barely holds a curl. I finally found a solution though. I use the Remington Ceramic Pearl curling wand and it is amazing! I found that normal curling irons did not hold my curl at all but the wands really do!
Also like Steph said curl your hair when it hasn't just been washed. That will work wonders! You also mentioned you want big curls, those are very hard to keep in because they are so big, they are very heavy on your hair and tend to pull and fall out easier. Especially when your hair isn't suuuuper long. When you make a curl, use a bobby pin to pin it up while its curled up and let it cool that way, touching the curls while they are still hot can make them fall out.

Your hair is REALLY long and that means it's heavy. I used to have hair this long and it's VERY hard to keep curls in. I'd suggest pin curls or flexirods, and sleep in them. I know it's uncomfortable, but it's what you have to do!
I also recommend using a high heat setting, with heat protectant of course, and you'll need some kind of hairspray to keep the curls in. You could always get layers cut in to free up some of the weight on top! I know you love your hair, but it could be great for when you want to curl it.
Also, make sure you're taking small sections of hair when you curl. If you take a huge chunk, the heat isn't going to disperse right and you'll end up with very blah curls that fall out fast. Hope this helps!
