Many women use a curling wand to add bouncy curls and volume to their flat or thinning hair. Often, one invests in such devices without giving a thought to potential problems posed by them. Here we shall discuss the typical issues one faces while using this device. The article also gives tips to avoid these issues. Modern curling devices typically make use of heat to curl the hair. This heat can be quite damaging to the hair shaft. Hence, one must make use of thermal protecting sprays and gels that are readily available in the market. One must be especially careful while using the higher heat settings of the device.
Refer to the instruction manual for temperature settings · Use the thermal glove provided with the curling wand to help prevent burns to your hands and fingers. · Brush out your hair to remove tangles if any · Tie up the top half of your hair in a clip. · Divide your hair in 1 inch sections. Using the other hand put the barrel of the appliance up toward the top of the hair section, close to the scalp. The wand should be on top of the hair section, not under it. Now wrap the hair around the barrel and then move down the length of your hair until you wrap the ends around it. · Repeat the procedure using the tool on the remaining parts of your hair.
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.
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.
