Through time there have been many methods devised to curl hair and to keep the curl in place. For example, in 1906 Charles L. Nessler, a German hairdresser working in London, applied a borax paste and curled hair with an iron to produce the first permanent waves. This costly process took twelve hours. Eight years later, Eugene Sutter adapted the method by creating a dryer containing twenty heaters to do the job of waving more efficiently. Sutter was followed by Gaston Boudou, who modified Sutters dryer and invented an automatic roller. By 1920, Rambaud, a Paris beautician, had perfected a system of curling and drying permed hair for softer, looser curls by using an electric hot-air dryer, an innovation of the period made by the Racine Universal Motor Company of Racine, Wisconsin. A significant breakthrough came in 1945, when French chemist Eugene Schueller of LOréal laboratories combined the action of thioglycolic acid with hydrogen peroxide to produce the first cold permanent wave, which was cheaper and faster than the earlier hot processes. To control the amount of curl, varying diameter of rods were used for rolling. Technology to hold hair in place was advanced in 1960 when LOréal laboratories introduced a polymer hair spray to serve as an invisible net.
The curling iron has remained a favoured tool in spite of all the chemical inventions. We have moved on from the metal rods heated by insertion into hot coals or heating on gas or electric stoves. With no control of the heat of the iron there must have been many cases of singed hair, not to mention burnt fingers and scalps! Modern day styles demand more control and flexibility of hair style with hair looking loose rather than "glued into place". Electrically heated and electronically controlled irons and tongs are now available. The barrels come in varying sizes enabling a tight curl or loose falling curl finish. Some have a smooth easy-glide ceramic barrel to create a super smooth finish and you can also purchase drop curl hair tongs with a cone shaped tong to create loose, tumbling waves and tousled curls. The fluctuation in hair styles from curly to straight and back again means manufacturers will continue to dream up new innovations to attract both professional hair stylists and the consumer.
A curling iron is as popular as a hair straightener or flat iron. In fact, it is used by a number of women to create luscious, sexy curls and that too within the comforts of the home. But, a curling tool give the expected results only if it is attached with top end features and made using a blend of amazing technologies. BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium and Ceramic curling tool would be an answer for those looking for a professional hair iron replete with most advanced features. This exceptional curling rod by BaByliss Pro also stands out the leading edge integration of technologies used for its manufacture.
Hot curlers are bit costly than the curling iron, but can achieve beautiful, enduring curls, in less then an hour. The hot rollers have wax which melts within 10 minutes, inside the metal page as the color changes. Then the curler is placed in the hair, as the wax cools down and the color changes back to the normal indicating that the curl has been set in about 10-20 minutes. It is advisory to use some hair spray or gel on the hair to retain the curls for a longer time. Hair must be washed a night before employing hot rollers, as sometimes clean hair tend to resist the curls. If you are using barrettes, bobby pins etc for styling your hair, it may require additional time. Both curling irons and hot rollers require adequate amount of time for heating up. However, hot curlers may require some extra time for the wax to melt completely. Hot curlers are considered best for curling the hair, but cannot be used for shaping the hair ends out or under. The change in the wax curler in the hot rollers indicates that the curls are completely set.
