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.
We only have to look at carvings from the ancient world to see that people cared about the style of their hair and that a popular style involved creating curls. Babylonian and Assyrian men dyed their hair and square beards black and crimped and curled them with curling irons. Persian nobles also curled their hair and beards quite often staining them. 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.
One of the recent innovations in the hair care scenario is the introduction of appliances such as curling irons and flat irons made using titanium technology. Titanium is highly regarded for its properties such as hard yet smooth surface lightweight strength durability and heat as well as corrosion resistance. Many leading hair stylists now use titanium made hair appliances for best results. However a curling iron could give you expected results only if it is professional and launched by leading hair care brands. BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium and Ceramic Curling Tool would be perhaps the best option for those looking for a top notch curling iron.
