Autumn Mcfarland Curling Wand July 08th, 2017 - 12:20:43
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!
One should opt for small and portable curling wands and irons instead of travelling with the bulky ones which have tangle-prone swiveling cords. While most curling wands from top brands are quite easy to use; one must have some understanding of using the device. Always study the accompanying manual carefully. Understand what the different parts of the wand are. There are many how-to guides and videos provided online which can help you master the device. Controlling the wand can also be problematic especially when one is using a large device with a bulky cord. There are many wands that are especially designed for the newbie. These can be used with one hand and are very easy to use. Additionally, many irons and wands come equipped with a plastic component on the barrel; these are perfect for the inexperienced user as she can use both hands without facing the risk of burns and injuries.
The history of the curling wand can be traced back to the year 1866 when an American born British citizen by the name Hiram Maxim first obtained the patent for the device. Also, two Frenchmen, Maurice Lentheric and Marcel Grateau could be accredited with first using the concept of applying heated tongs for curling hair, by early 1900. Hair curled in this manner also came to be known as Marcel curls or waves. The device invented by Grateau was called Marcel tongs. The advantage of the Marcel tongs over its predecessors was that it gave longer lasting, and deeper curls.
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.
