Egyptian nobles men and women cropped their hair close but later for coolness and cleanliness in their hot climate shaved their heads. On ceremonial occasions for protection from the sun they wore wigs. The wigs would be short and curly or long and full of curls or braids. The Science Museum has an example of curling tongs used by rich Egyptians to prepare their wigs.
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.
