Curly hair is one style that seldom goes out of fashion. It looks great on a wide variety of face structures and adds a definite feminine softness to your personality especially if you have short hair. Short hair in fact respond very well to curling. You can use anything from a curling iron hot curlers or even a blow dryer to get curls. In this article I will focus on how to curl short hair with a curling iron. Curling iron is sometimes also called curling tons. It is used to create waves and curls in hair. There are a wide variety of curling irons available in the market today varying by diameter handle material and shape of the barrel. If you want to curl short hair I recommend going with an iron that has a small barrel. Construction material varies by brand as well as price and ranges from Teflon and ceramic to metals like titanium.
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.
Safe use of curling iron is recommended. People do not put much concentration on the safety hence increases the risk. Sometime negligence may prove harmful. So it is best to know the directions of usage of hair curler before you begin to curl or swirl the hair. When it comes to personal safety the fundamentals teach us that curling iron gets heated with high temperature and the flow of electricity in it is constant which in case of carelessness leads to burns shocks and fire. Fire accident may occur when dealing with hair curler. It is always best to follow the personal safety rule before trying the curling iron. Curling tool should be handled away from the head seeing to it that it does not touch the scalp and the heat might not burn the skin. By good control with your hands you can resist t urgency to press runaway hairs rolling down while curling.
Curling short hair is difficult because for an ideal curl the hair needs to wrap around the iron at least two times. If your hair is shorter than this you will find that the iron can at most give you a bend not a curl (which nevertheless looks quite attractive). The shorter your hair the smaller the barrel of the curling iron should be. To curl short hair start off from the front of your head separating your hair into sections. The sections shouldnt be more than 1 inch wide though this will vary with the length of your hair. To effectively curl very short hair you will need to take sections that are less than 1/2 inch wide. As a rule of the thumb keep your sections smaller than the barrel of your curling iron.
