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.
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.
Also, the tourmaline infused ceramic barrels have rendered the wand a lot safer; it has helped women avoid frizzy or unmanageable hair. The time required for the procedure is also less. The temperature range of most curling wands is between 284 degrees Fahrenheit to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Higher the temperatures of the wand more defined are the curls. Here are the steps to use the curling wand: · Plug in the wand and let it heat up to the desired temperature. If your device has a thermostat or temperature control, you can select the desired heat level for the curls you require.
