How to Curl your Versafiber Wig by Paula Young

I bought "Shannon" versafiber wigs with all the hopes and dreams of changing it's style up like real hair. I want *bouncy*curls! Paula Young says you can curl versafiber hair with a curling iron up to 350(F)- their tutorial video says to curl then clip the curl until cool. Is it seriously that easy?
Try #1: I did exactly what Paula Young told me to, curl then clip. I have a 1" curling iron. But when it cools and I removed the clips and finger-combed my versafiber the hair flopped flat. LAME.

So try #2: I wrapped cool hair back up in curled clips, then I lightly steamed them with a handheld steamer, and let dry before unclipping. (This is what you do if you want to create curls or waves in synthetic hair wigs 😉 if you want super loose waves undo the clips before the hair fully dries)

And again finger-combing = ugly, sad curls ☹️
Water boils at 212(F) so I didn't ruin the hair, don't worry.

OK- so try #3 we will go over the flat curls again with a curling iron. Not giving up!!

Well... it looks slightly better than the first try 🤷
Is this as much bounce as I get?! WTF PAULA?!

Paula Young says you can heat-style Versafiber hair and the new style will be "locked in"-- meaning you can wash the wig and it will return to your style. So let's test that theory! I drenched the wig in water, no shampoo, shook a little, and let dry...

WHY won't the back of the wig stay bouncy curls?!
That hair is disappointing ☹️
Final thoughts: Versafiber hair isn't special.
