Naturally, you must never use the device in the shower or where it can fall accidentally in the tub or the sink.

Likewise, the device should also not be used outdoors, especially where there are aerosols/sprays present. 4) Care should also be taken when using the tool near or on disabled people and kids. 5) If you feel that the cord of the device is damaged, you should immediately discontinue use. Additionally, you must not try to repair the device yourself; instead, have it fixed by experts or buy a new one.The cord of the curling wand should be kept away from heated surfaces. 6) When the device is still plugged-in, it should not be laid down, unless you are using special ceramic plates to rest it.
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 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.
