What are the criteria for choosing a curling iron?
Do you want to have curls as impeccable as those of Hollywood stars? Hair curlers today can give surprising results. Just choose the model that meets your needs. To do this, here are the criteria to consider:
Brands offer a variety of shapes of curling irons. While some have a rounded or conical shape, others are a succession of balls or even have boxes. In any case, the shape does not impact the quality of the curls, but the style of the hairstyle. If the rounded curlers are suitable for creating regular waves from the roots to the tips, the conical irons are ideal for obtaining a wavy effect.
The diameter is chosen according to the length of your hair. If you have a short cut, choose small diameters, between 10 and 20 mm. Thus, your curls will have a longer hold. On the other hand, if you have long or medium-length hair, curlers with a diameter of 25 to 40 mm allow you wide waves.
- The technique of use
By opting for classic devices, you will have to wrap the wicks around the curler. On the other hand, other models suck up the hair, then wrap it inside to give it its shape.
Ceramic is the most popular. It is effective in distributing the heat evenly, which prevents heat damage while allowing a flawless result.
Most curling irons have a temperature control. This element is essential to adjust the level of heat emitted according to the nature of the hair. In any case, a temperature of 185°C is recommended. It is hot enough to sculpt the hair without damaging it.
