7) The heated barrel should never be touched directly and you must ensure using a protective heat glove (most top brands provide one with the device). 8)The barrel should also never used near the eyes or broken skin. 9) Curling wands having barrels made with tourmaline and ceramic coating get hot within seconds, so make sure that you do not touch these with bare hands. 10) Your hair should also be clean and dry prior to using the device on it. 11)The unit should be allowed to heat for 30 to 40 seconds and most brands can be used with an AC 60 HZ at 120 V outlets. 12) Before using the device for curling or straightening the hair, make sure that you use heat protecting serum and sprays.
It has a teflon coated tourmaline barrel and the grip of this device is a lot better when compared to several others in the category. The barrel also tapers down so you get more natural looking curls. On the downside, there are user reviews that say this product gets too hot. But that is what the wand is supposed to do, so I am unsure how that is a negative characteristic. If you take proper care, wear heat protecting gloves as well as serum to prevent hair damage, you should be fine. The second product I recommend is The Remington C195 AC wand which uses a crushed pearl that creates negative ions. Negative ions technology can give you smooth frizz-free hair. It has a conical barrel and you can also protect your hands from burns by using the accompanying glove which is rather cute!
Even during the curling process, heat from the barrel can cause burns to the neck, ears and scalp. If such injuries are severe-like blisters and bleeding; then one must seek prompt medical attention. An anti-septic cream should be used instantly on the burns. One must also try to minimize the heat damage to fingers and hands by using heat protecting gloves. Women often carry their curling wands and irons while traveling. They must make sure to use the right outlet for plugging the device, especially when taking the device to foreign countries with different power outputs. The wand can be damaged permanently if used with incompatible wattages.
