While choosing a curling iron take care of the quality of the cord also. A curling iron having a swivel cord connection is recommended so that it withstands the pressure while moving the iron in any direction. Before using the curling iron the hair should be thoroughly dry or else the excess moisture and the heat form the iron can combine to cause burns. Anyway hot curling irons should not be used on the scalp or roots. To begin with set the temperature at a lower level and then progress to higher settings if required. Curling irons are also available for controlling and smoothng frizzy and natural curly hair. It is advisable to curl such hair using a barrel. Gold N Hot curling irons are recommended as they have a rheostat control to manage temperatures varying from 150 to 320 degrees. Make sure that the features you are looking for are available in the curling iron before purchasing it.
Through time there have been many methods devised to curl hair and to keep the curl in place. For example, in 1906 Charles L. Nessler, a German hairdresser working in London, applied a borax paste and curled hair with an iron to produce the first permanent waves. This costly process took twelve hours. Eight years later, Eugene Sutter adapted the method by creating a dryer containing twenty heaters to do the job of waving more efficiently. Sutter was followed by Gaston Boudou, who modified Sutters dryer and invented an automatic roller. By 1920, Rambaud, a Paris beautician, had perfected a system of curling and drying permed hair for softer, looser curls by using an electric hot-air dryer, an innovation of the period made by the Racine Universal Motor Company of Racine, Wisconsin. A significant breakthrough came in 1945, when French chemist Eugene Schueller of LOréal laboratories combined the action of thioglycolic acid with hydrogen peroxide to produce the first cold permanent wave, which was cheaper and faster than the earlier hot processes. To control the amount of curl, varying diameter of rods were used for rolling. Technology to hold hair in place was advanced in 1960 when LOréal laboratories introduced a polymer hair spray to serve as an invisible net.
Equally important is to use a curling tool with right barrel size. For instance, if you would like to have springy curls, then it is advisable to use a curling rod with a barrel weighing just.75 inch. This is also suitable for people with short as well as fine hair. Likewise, for natural curls, use a curling iron with one inch barrel. Further, it would be enough if you use a curling rod with barrel of 1.5 - 2 inches for creating cascading waves. For best results, use a curling rod with adjustable heat settings. This in turn would help to adjust the heat settings to suit the texture of your hair. Prior to curling your hair, prepare your hair by shampooing it and then use a heat protectant spray or gel on your damp hair. Then blow dry and divide your hair into small sections. The next step is to plug in the curling tool. When it reaches the desirable temperature, unclip a section of your hair to place it within the curling rod. Now glide down the curling tool starting from the scalp. When the iron reaches the tip of the hair, roll up and hold it for about ten seconds. Repeat the same procedures with all the other sections of your hair.
