#29 So What is IT?SiemersRafterRoom 2018-04-04 15:40
You didn't say what it was this week.
I do know it isn't a "Hair Curler" Can you imagine the tangles you would get in the rasp holes?
So common, tell us please.

Curling iron/crimper. The tool would be placed over a heat source then a portion of hair would either wrapped around rod or crimped.
