I noticed I got a few Youtube comments on my Japanese Curls tutorial from people saying it was just "regular" curls but I think those people must not have much idea of the style of curls the girls in Japanese magazines have. Well you can definitely see the difference in curl style from this video compared to that one. I get much tighter curls when I curl my hair with a flat iron than with my larger-barreled curling iron. Please don't laugh at me that my hair is practically an afro at the end of the video! They loosen up more after an hour or so and I have a TON of hair. XD One of the things I let slide while I was sick was getting my hair cut so my layers are all long and heavy. It's definitely on my to-do list now!
The straightener I used was the Farouk Biosilk 1" Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron, which is made by the same company that makes Chi irons. It works super well for my having bought it on clearance from TJ Maxx for around $35 plus it has a temperature dial to adjust for different hair textures. The red plates also turn burgundy when it's hot which only takes about a minute.
I did forget to mention in my video that before you heat-style your hair you should always use a heat protecting product so your hair doesn't get damaged.
Here's some pics. Not too interesting and I forgot to take a photo of the back of my head but basically it looks curly. Who would've guessed? ;)
Lots 'O Hair

Just noticed my hair kinda looks like an Asian wig. Dudes, it's not. I just have wig-looking hair.
Ok I should go get my hair cut. Buh bye all, happy Saturday~
