Avoid Burning Hair With a Curling Iron

August 6, 2008 by  

The biggest danger in using a curling iron is the potential to burn not only your skin, but your hair as well. Nothing damages hair quite like excess heat so care should be taken to control the heat you apply to your hair to style it with a curling iron. First off always make sure your hair is completely dry before you begin curling it. Any moisture will scorch your hair if heat is applied directly to it. Also, if possible spend the money to get a professional ceramic curling iron, which will apply the heat in a more controlled uniform way to your hair.
