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.
Women with thicker hair often over-zealously make use of such higher temperatures. They should be aware of problems like frizzy, fried-out and dry hair caused by the styling device at such high temperatures. If you use the wand more than two to three times a week, you must ensure making use of a leave-in conditioner to replenish the lost moisture. You can also use natural ingredients like eggs for deep conditioning the hair. Additionally, most curling wands and irons heat up within seconds of being switched ON. Care should be taken not to touch the hot barrel as this can cause severe burns on the hands and fingers.
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.
