One should opt for small and portable curling wands and irons instead of travelling with the bulky ones which have tangle-prone swiveling cords. While most curling wands from top brands are quite easy to use; one must have some understanding of using the device. Always study the accompanying manual carefully. Understand what the different parts of the wand are. There are many how-to guides and videos provided online which can help you master the device. Controlling the wand can also be problematic especially when one is using a large device with a bulky cord. There are many wands that are especially designed for the newbie. These can be used with one hand and are very easy to use. Additionally many irons and wands come equipped with a plastic component on the barrel; these are perfect for the inexperienced user as she can use both hands without facing the risk of burns and injuries.
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.
The fact whether the Marcel iron was a modification of Maxims device or an original creation is lost in history; so one cannot say for sure who the inventor of the curling wand is. In 1906 a German hair dresser by the name Charles L. Nessler used borax paste and hot irons to curl hair using eight hour long procedures! This was improved upon in 1914 by Eugene Sutter who used 20 heaters to reduce this curling time considerably. By 1920 a Parisian beautician Rambaud claimed to have perfected a system for curling hair but a more significant invention came in 1945 when a French chemist by the name EugeneSchueller of LOreal laboratories used rods of varying diameters to control the depth and quantity of curls. By 1960 LOreal had also developed its polymer hairspray to hold the curls in place.
Refer to the instruction manual for temperature settings · Use the thermal glove provided with the curling wand to help prevent burns to your hands and fingers. · Brush out your hair to remove tangles if any · Tie up the top half of your hair in a clip. · Divide your hair in 1 inch sections. Using the other hand put the barrel of the appliance up toward the top of the hair section close to the scalp. The wand should be on top of the hair section not under it. Now wrap the hair around the barrel and then move down the length of your hair until you wrap the ends around it. · Repeat the procedure using the tool on the remaining parts of your hair.
