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.
There are many kinds of Farouk chi spiral curling irons. Among them are irons for beginners and there are models for more advanced and professional users. They are basically the same. The irons for beginners though are much easier to use and handle. They usually have guides that show users where exactly to put their hair. Professional level irons do not have this feature. More advanced irons also have higher heat settings that provide more flexibility when it comes to styling. A word of caution here is that Farouk chi irons are not toys so they should not be handled by children. If teenagers will use them then they should be supervised. The metal barrel can become very hot and can cause burns to the skin. You should read the manual carefully before using these gadgets. You can burn and seriously damage your hair if you will use these irons carelessly and improperly. There are many cases of individuals "frying" or over crimping their hair because of wrong use of the iron. If you are unsure about using this devise then have a professional curl your hair instead.
History of the curling iron. Is there such a thing or is the curling iron just a modern invention? Each generation is the same. We think we have invented something new when perhaps all we have done is to modify "old inventions" by applying modern technology. Let us begin to investigate the history of the curling iron or as it is also known the curling tong. Let us begin with the definition of a curling iron. It is a tool a cylindrical metal appliance used to change the structure of the hair by applying heat to a lock of hair that has been curled around it. It is natural to think with a modern mind and assume that the heat is generated by electricity. However the curling iron goes way back before the introduction of electricity.
Curling irons can also be effective to create curls of different size in one strand of hair. Curls can be created in a number of ways. A diffuser can be used to create loose bouncy curls. Curling irons can be used regularly without damaging the hair so long the hair is conditioned with thermal conditioners. In fact it is better to use a leave in conditioner to protect the hair from any kind of damage. Curling irons with various types of coatings are available in the market. Chrome-plated irons are quite popular as they suit all types of hair. Low heat should be used for fine thin hair whereas slightly higher heat can be used for coarse to medium hair. Professional hairdressers use gold-plated barrels as it is a better conductor of heat. The latest contraption is the ceramic coated plates which offer value for money. They are more effective in providing uniform heat and are suitable for all types of hair.
