The history of the curling wand can be traced back to the year 1866 when an American born British citizen by the name Hiram Maxim first obtained the patent for the device. Also two Frenchmen Maurice Lentheric and Marcel Grateau could be accredited with first using the concept of applying heated tongs for curling hair by early 1900. Hair curled in this manner also came to be known as Marcel curls or waves. The device invented by Grateau was called Marcel tongs. The advantage of the Marcel tongs over its predecessors was that it gave longer lasting and deeper curls.
7) The heated barrel should never be touched directly and you must ensure using a protective heat glove (most top brands provide one with the device). 8)The barrel should also never used near the eyes or broken skin. 9) Curling wands having barrels made with tourmaline and ceramic coating get hot within seconds so make sure that you do not touch these with bare hands. 10) Your hair should also be clean and dry prior to using the device on it. 11)The unit should be allowed to heat for 30 to 40 seconds and most brands can be used with an AC 60 HZ at 120 V outlets. 12) Before using the device for curling or straightening the hair make sure that you use heat protecting serum and sprays.
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.
The heat of the iron can also damage the hair shaft. The wand on the other hand is a lot safer tool due to the ceramic barrel and negative ion technology. The ceramic or tourmaline barrel can retain heat longer and can give one the desired curls in minutes. The negative ion technology of the curling wand also ensures less damage to the hair shaft. Safety rules while using the curling wand 1) Like with all other electric appliances care must be taken when using the curling wand near children and pets. 2) The device must never be used near water. Many women use the wand in their bathrooms.
