Not Leaving A Curling Iron On Your Hair Too Long

August 26, 2008 by  

Many women tend to allow the hot plates of a curling iron to remain in contact with their hair for too much time with each wrapping of the hair. Generally most hair will only need about five seconds of contact on a quality ionic curling iron in order to effectively curl. If your hair is not responding to five seconds worth of heat on the strands then you are either using too low a heat setting for your hair type or the curling iron is not effectively heating up to the temperature specified. To effectively curl your hair you need to increase the temperature or use a curling iron, which can effectively heat up to curl your hair properly.
