The curling wand or curling iron is one of the most commonly used appliances for convenient, at-home hairstyling. While the present generation might believe that most of such styling tools and appliances are modern inventions, in reality; they are simply modifications made to devices which made their debut centuries ago. Indeed, since many centuries, men and women alike have been known to be obsessed with curly hair. In fact, it was a common habit for men to use tongs heated in fire for curling the hair on their heads as well as their beards! These methods were rather unrefined and many times, such crude techniques ended up burning and damaging hair.
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.
Additionally, Sarah Breedlove Walker, an African-American lady in Indianapolis, Indiana, claimed to have created and perfected a method for hair straightening using hot combs that were loosely based on hair-curling devices available in the past. The modern electric curling wand may even be attributed to Rene Lelievre and Roger Lemoine who, in 1959, used electricity to heat up the barrels of the wands. Thus, it is evident that many people have put in their efforts in creating a device for curling hair. The modern curling wand can be considered a product of all these efforts. The history of the device maybe vague and ambiguous but one thing is clear: the modern curling wand has indeed come a long way from the original methods of curling hair.
