Different Types of Curling Wands
The grass is always greener on the other side. Applies in all fields of life. Do you agree? We lust moreover our neighbour’s house, other’s lives, other’s partner, other’s complexion, etc etc. Similarly, when it comes to hair, it’s a general rule that a straight-haired girl craves curls whereas a curly-haired girl is always found straightening her hair. There are so many hair tools in the market for the same. However, achieving the perfect curl is quite a task. Whether you love the beachy waves or a crimped hair look, here I am rounding up the various types of curling wands available for your dreamy hair.
The curling wands can be classified on the basis of the material and barrel size. Usually, the wands are made of ceramic, tourmaline or titanium. A ceramic one is the most popular as it works both for thin and thick hair as the heat is evenly distributed.
However, you need to use different barrel sizes for the type of curls you want. The less than 1-inch diameter ones give you the standard ones while the narrower ones are for crimpy hair.
1. Bubble wand: It’s the easiest to use and hence perfect for use for beginners. Because the bubbles on the wand tell you exactly how to wrap your hair strands. It is helpful for creating bouncy curls.
2. Tapered curling iron: Since this wand has different diameters it’s a very useful tool. You can create different curls using this same wand. The wider part gives you bigger curls while the narrower part gives you tighter ones.
3. Curling iron with clamp: The upside is that you don’t have to hold your hair while
curling which saves you from burns. However, the hair near the scalp is difficult to curl.
4. Double barrel iron: This one is ideal for beachy waves.
5. Triple Barrel wand: This one comes with a clamp and is helpful for making loose crimps and waves.
However, you should always stick to a few precautions while heat curling your tresses. Make sure your hair is clean and you have applied a heat protection product to save your hair from all the heat. If you have coloured hair or chemically treated hair, you should be extra careful.
For healthy to medium hair, temperatures should be between 300 to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
While for coloured or treated hair, it should not exceed 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thick, coarse and curly hair can handle higher temperatures.
