· Use a heat protecting serum to protect the hair from the heat of the barrel · While straightening your hair, it is best to use the lowest possible heat setting on the tool, which will give you the desired effect without any damage. Curling wand or curling iron: Which is better? There is often a question on every womans mind as to which tool is better: the wand or the curling iron. Experts are of the opinion that wands are better than the irons because they are easier to use and cause less damage to the hair. The curling iron also requires you to place your hair in a clamp. This can damage and break hair.
This will prevent the hair shaft from being damaged. Temperature settings of the curling wand and your Hair type Note that there are different heat settings for curling different hair types.This is more so in case you are using a curling wand having adjustable temperatures. In digitally controlled devices the general rule of thumb is: 1) Low setting (250 F) for delicate, fine and color treated hair 2) Medium setting (310 F) for average thick hair 3) Medium high (330 F) for thick and wavy hair 4) High Max (360 to 395 F) for hard to curl or very thick hair. Remember that, for consistent styling of hair, most top brands of wands today, use a surge of power to keep the barrel continuously heated.
By following these safety instructions mentioned above, you can get the same precision level hair styling at home, as you would in a salon with a good quality curling wand. Also, many women make the mistake of wrapping their hair around the barrel for a long time. The thought behind this is; larger the time duration, longer the curls will last. This is not true. If you use a good wand and use the recommended temperature for your hair type, then you should get good results in 5 to 8 seconds. My Opinion On the Best Curling wands As a user who has used many curling wands I have liked several brands including one of the lesser known ones: The Amika 25mm curling wand has a swiveling cord that I found quite practical, as it does not bunch up like other models.
The heat of the iron can also damage the hair shaft. The wand on the other hand is a lot safer tool due to the ceramic barrel and negative ion technology. The ceramic or tourmaline barrel can retain heat longer and can give one the desired curls in minutes. The negative ion technology of the curling wand also ensures less damage to the hair shaft. Safety rules while using the curling wand 1) Like with all other electric appliances, care must be taken when using the curling wand near children and pets. 2) The device must never be used near water. Many women use the wand in their bathrooms.
