Heidi Summers Curling Wand September 05th, 2018 - 20:13:12
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.
It has a teflon coated tourmaline barrel and the grip of this device is a lot better when compared to several others in the category. The barrel also tapers down so you get more natural looking curls. On the downside there are user reviews that say this product gets too hot. But that is what the wand is supposed to do so I am unsure how that is a negative characteristic. If you take proper care wear heat protecting gloves as well as serum to prevent hair damage you should be fine. The second product I recommend is The Remington C195 AC wand which uses a crushed pearl that creates negative ions. Negative ions technology can give you smooth frizz-free hair. It has a conical barrel and you can also protect your hands from burns by using the accompanying glove which is rather cute!
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.
Even during the curling process heat from the barrel can cause burns to the neck ears and scalp. If such injuries are severe-like blisters and bleeding; then one must seek prompt medical attention. An anti-septic cream should be used instantly on the burns. One must also try to minimize the heat damage to fingers and hands by using heat protecting gloves. Women often carry their curling wands and irons while traveling. They must make sure to use the right outlet for plugging the device especially when taking the device to foreign countries with different power outputs. The wand can be damaged permanently if used with incompatible wattages.
