What you Need to Know Before Using a Curling Wand

If you want to change your hairstyles, you don’t have to go to the hairdressing salon every time. So long as you get yourself a proper curling wand, you can easily make the perfect curls you want at home. But before curling up for yourself, there are some advices you should know for better hair protection and more desirable hairstyle effects.

Confirm the Size of Curling Wand

When it comes to curling irons, most of us reach for a hot tool with a one or two-inch barrel. However, these aren’t the only curling iron sizes available and they might not even be the best size for the hairstyle you are trying to achieve. The size of a curling barrel will vary the overall curl style. For example, small curling iron is generally used to get finer curls or waves, and are more suitable for short hair. While large curling iron is ideal for long hair for more fluffy curls.

Fully preheat the iron

Before using the curling iron, remember to fully preheat it. Because if the temperature of the curling iron is not enough, then the curled hair will have no curvature at all, which not only wastes time but also damages your hair.

Dry hair in advance

Make sure your hair is completely dry before using the curling wand. If you use a curling iron with wet hair, it is easy to cause split ends and breaks.

Curls toward the outside of the face

If you don't want to ruin your hair style, and want a more natural look, you should curl your hair outward on the face. Remember that different sides of the face should be curled in different directions, with the hair on the right curled to the left and the hair on the left curled to the right.

Don't roll too much at a time

If you curl too much hair at once, the effect will not last long. It is recommended to partition before curling. The smaller the partition, the better the effect.

 

Tips for Using Curling Wand

Not everyone can easily design a perfect hairstyle with a curling iron, because some curlers may only bring you old-fashioned curls, which is quite a headache. The following teaches you how to use a curling wand to achieve satisfactory styles

  1. If you only want to make natural micro curls, you could use a curling & straightening dual-use hair iron, but if you want to make charming dedicated curls, a unique curling wand should be your first choice.
  1. Use different sizes to create curls with different effects. The 19-25MM curling wand is suitable for beautiful retro curls, and the 25-32MM curling stick can create elegant curls, and if you want exaggerated waves, a curling stick above 32MM is desired.
  1. If you want to use curling wand after washing your hair, it is best to apply a layer of repair essence first. It can play a great role in protecting your hair, then dry your hair completely before curling.
  1. In order to make the curling effect last longer, you can use a styling product to maintain the curl after curling. Do not touch your hair with your fingers immediately after curling, otherwise it will ruin the hair curl you just made, wait at least 15 minutes, or wait for the hair to cool naturally before using your fingers to spread the hair curls.
  1. Some girls may set the temperature of the curling iron to the highest, considering that the styling effect may be better. However, the heat of the curling iron may cause your hair dry and split, so the staying time of the curling iron on the hair should be less than 10 seconds to better protect your hair.
