Kaye Glover Curling Wand December 31st, 2017 - 13:51:56
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!
The curling wand or curling iron is one of the most commonly used appliances for convenient, at-home hairstyling. While the present generation might believe that most of such styling tools and appliances are modern inventions, in reality; they are simply modifications made to devices which made their debut centuries ago. Indeed, since many centuries, men and women alike have been known to be obsessed with curly hair. In fact, it was a common habit for men to use tongs heated in fire for curling the hair on their heads as well as their beards! These methods were rather unrefined and many times, such crude techniques ended up burning and damaging hair.
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.
The fact whether the Marcel iron was a modification of Maxims device or an original creation is lost in history; so one cannot say for sure who the inventor of the curling wand is. In 1906, a German hair dresser by the name Charles L. Nessler used borax paste and hot irons to curl hair using eight hour long procedures! This was improved upon in 1914, by Eugene Sutter who used 20 heaters to reduce this curling time considerably. By 1920 a Parisian beautician Rambaud claimed to have perfected a system for curling hair, but a more significant invention came in 1945 when a French chemist by the name EugeneSchueller of LOreal laboratories used rods of varying diameters to control the depth and quantity of curls. By 1960, LOreal had also developed its polymer hairspray to hold the curls in place.
