I GOT THE 1920s LOOK I LOVE
mary isokariari, 35, is a writer. she is single and lives in south london.
SHE SAYS: Afro hair needs a lot of looking after so I always use protecting sprays or creams and castor oil to lock the moisture in when I’m styling it.
Naturally my hair is very soft and curly but if I use straighteners, it lasts for a long time.
However I don’t like using too much heat as it can make my hair brittle and thin.
I’ll use a hairdryer on a very low heat but that can mean I’m drying my hair for up to an hour at a time.
This was much quicker. Using the smaller curling barrel only took around 15 minutes to create Twenties-style ringlets which I absolutely loved.
But wow, the £450 price tag is heavy. I might see if my friends want to buy one between us so we can share.
