February 5, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Curls are sexy, and if you’ve been blessed with naturally curly hair, you should appreciate how lucky you are. For those of us with straight hair, it is always nice to try something else out from time to time, and beautiful flowing curls are a nice change from your typical straight style.

When it comes to creating beautiful curls you don’t have to commit yourself to a perm that will damage your hair and leave you with a permanent head of curls. After all, you probably want to mix it up a bit. And sure, you could use a head of hot rollers to create your curls. But who wants to walk around with a head full of plastic for hours? If you want an easy and effective way to create beautiful curls, all you need is a professional curling iron.

When I tell you that you need a professional curling iron, I don’t mean that you need to spend thousands of dollars on a hair tool. What I mean is you must choose a quality curling iron that will get the job done without damaging your hair. A ceramic curling iron is the best choice for most users. Ceramic is a moisture conducting material that will actually infuse your hair with moisture as it’s curling your hair. What this means to you is that your hair won’t end up damaged by the heat and it will actually look shiner and healthier than when you started. That’s right, using a ceramic curling iron can actually improve the look of your hair.

Don’t be fooled by people who tell you that hair tools damage your hair. Those people are probably using inexpensive, low quality tools with metal barrels that will snag, burn and singe hair. And yes, if you use those types of hair tools, they will damage your hair. Choose quality hair tools that will improve the look of your hair.

For even healthier looking curls, look for a curling iron with tourmaline in it. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that actually emits negative ions. Those negative ions infuse the hair locking in moisture and sealing each and every hair cuticle, so hair lays flat against the head giving you a beautiful smooth curl. Forget about the frizzies and the broken looking hair that often results from over styling, with a curling iron infused with tourmaline, your hair and curls will never look better.

When you use a curling iron to create your curls, you have so much more control over how you want them to look. Do you want loose flowing curls? Or tight spiral curls? You’re in control when it comes to a curling iron unlike a perm or hot rollers where you are at the mercy of the rollers.

Don’t be afraid of curling irons, once you use them a few times, it’s easy to perfect the exact look that you are going for. They’re very easy to use, and the best part about them is that they are affordable and if you want to go back to your straight look tomorrow, you can.

Many women wonder which is better at putting curl into your hair, curling irons or hair rollers. Of course there is no right answer in this case it is actually a matter of personal preference. Hot rollers do tend to cost slightly more than curling irons, once all the rollers are in place the hair curls quickly, and you can do other tasks while you curl your hair since hands are not needed. On the other hand a professional curling iron gives you more control of where the curls go in your hair and many feel that despite your hands being required at all times they are actually easier to use than rollers.

There are so many types of curling irons available it can be confusing when you head out to buy one which one is best for you, your needs, and your wallet. Of course it is tempting for some women to buy a low cost drugstore curing iron, but in the long run this is never a good idea for your hair. These irons do not last as long and are not as good for your hair as the better professional based models you will find at beauty supply dealers.

Once you make the decision to purchase a professional curling iron then you need to consider what size of barrel and what features you want the curling iron to have. Of course you really cannot go wrong with the choice between a ceramic, ionic, and even a tourmaline curling iron. All of these irons are designed to help keep your hair healthy no matter how often you use them to style your hair. The bigger decision for many women will be the size of the barrel they want to purchase. Smaller barrels make smaller tighter curls while larger barrels make more wavy hair with big loose curls. For many a barrel size in the middle of the road will work out great while others want a couple of barrel sizes to get different looks and have some fun with their hairstyle.

Some women feel that hot rollers are not as harsh on the hair as a curling iron and prefer to use rollers to curl their hair on a daily basis. This is not the case if the curling iron is a professional grade model designed to be used frequently without damage to the hair.
