Things you need to know about curling irons

I bet everybody has heard the saying "the hair is a woman's crowning glory". I really agree with this quote. You see, your hair can actually define your face and it is the only part of the body that you have full control of. In a world where fashion and hairstyles are not constant, having a curling iron is a must.

Curls are once again a fad these days and most girls are dying to have the shiniest, loosest and most natural looking waves. The solution to that problem is simple. Find the perfect curling iron.

A curling iron is a simple device used to curl one's hair. Like other hair devices such as blow dryers and flat irons, these kinds of irons are also becoming popular. There are various models of curling irons but the major ones are the spring and the clipless curling iron. The spring kind is really easy to use and it will not eat much of your time. Clamp the ends of your hair then you roll the barrel up and let go. Really easy, Right? The only problem with this is that you will only be limited in making similar kinds of curls. However, the clipless kind does that job. All you need to do is take a section of your hair, wrap it around the barrel and just slide the iron out and voila, a perfect bouncy curl! All you really need is the perfect curling iron and some instructions and you are already good to go. Listed below are the tips on how to find the perfect curling iron for you.

1. Size Matters

When choosing a curling iron, you have to get the best size. If you want big waves, use an iron that has a 2-inch diameter. With regards to creating soft waves, choose a slightly smaller iron with a diameter of at least one and a half inch. The barrel size is important since the size of your curls will also depend on this.

Hair Type

You have to consider your hair type. When it comes to various hair types, heat is a beneficial aspect. Frizzy and thick locks need higher heat so an iron can reach up to 410°F; whereas fragile, thin and normal hair should only reach up to 150°F

Check for features

Some models offer a few more features but the beneficial ones are only the on/off button, a long swivel cord and a good temperature range. You do not really have to spend too much just because the iron has a lot more features for you to play with.

Barrel for Curls

You really need to pay special attention to the barrel since your curls will depend on it. Choose a polished ceramic barrel that includes tourmaline because that will prevent humidity from destroying your newly styled curls.

So there you go. These are the important things you need to remember when you are looking for the perfect curling iron. It would take a little of your time to research for the best brands but I am pretty sure it will be worth it.
