Question Curling wig

So I have a Kamui Gakupo wig and a wig I would just like to use to test out curling wigs.
Here is my Kamui Gakupo :http://i1212.photobucket.com/albums/...ps67a757ca.jpg

I want to just do a light long curl with the two strands with the purple one, the main head piece. I tried to do a curl on the red test wig and it failed, I left it in for over night and had hair sprayed each section I did but maybe pulled it out wrong? I just was testing and wanted to know what was a good way to curl wigs and what to use. I use non heat rollers, they are plastic and have the clips to them and I know it can be done I just did something wrong.
Help?

just spraying it with hairspray isn't going to change it's shape. Since wigs are plastic, you need to add some type of heat to make the curls stay.

depending on the wig you can also use an actual curler on low heat, but then again you need to know if your wig is heat resistant or not. Most sellers on ebay, depending on the seller, will not say.
