Taming Your Unruly Curly Hair With A Curling Iron

August 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Sometimes women with naturally curly hair have unruly hard to manage curls. These unmanageable locks can be even harder to manage than those of someone with straight hair since curls can be so much harder to work with. For those bad hair days with naturally curly hair you need to reach for a large barrel curling iron to tame those tresses. This may not be a natural reaction since you are wanting to tame those curls and get some kink out so it may seem a little odd to use a curling iron to put more curl in.

By using a curling iron on your unruly hair you are actually just using the heat and the large barrel to reshape your hair into its own natural state. The strands, which are either over-curling or straightening out are curled to one uniform size with the large barrel on the curling iron. It is also very important that the curling iron you are using is hot enough to be effective on your hair. If not enough heat is used then the curling will not effectively tame those unruly curls and get you looking good again.

Avoid Burning Hair With a Curling Iron

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.

Curl is Back in Fashion

Those with naturally curly hair have been rejoicing, it seems having loose wavy curls is making a fashion comeback. So that means it is time to lay down those hair straightening irons (though not too far that look is still hot too), and pick up your hair curling irons. I know everyone tells you that you can create gorgeous wavy curls in your hair with that flat iron, but for truly beautiful curl without taking the time to master the flat iron, you will have much better luck with professional quality curling irons.

By going with the curling iron that creates the curl size you want you will have much more control over the final size of the curl you end up with. This will also translate into more uniform curls since the curling iron is one size. With the flat iron the curl amount depends on the amount you twist the iron as you go down your hair. Also using a curling iron for waves is much easier since you only need to wrap the hair around the barrel and wait a few seconds as opposed to the twisting and sliding motion that the flat iron requires. Curling irons are simple to use and every woman should have one or two sizes around at any time to get some style into their hair.

Keeping your Hair Healthy During Styling

The hairstyles of today can be intense and demanding on your hair with all of the styling products and heat from professional hair tools. Luckily technology has come a long way toward helping you get your hair silky and healthy despite these demanding hair styling techniques.

Of course one of the most heat intensive things you can do to your hair is curl it or straighten it using a curling iron or hair flat iron. With both of these products you are using heated metal and ceramic to form the hair to your desired look and style. In the past the ceramic plates where only coated on to cheap metal which did not heat up to temperatures with much exactness. Hair straightening irons have come along way and are now made out of better materials which not only straighten your hair more efficiently they do so with minimal damage to the hair when used correctly. Tourmaline ceramic hair irons with ionic technology help your hair by promoting the negative ions which will help lock in the natural moisture your hair has which will reduce the potential for frizzy fly-a-ways and less than perfect straightening. While titanium hair irons use this high-grade material instead of cheap metals to create irons which heat up quickly, maintain constant temperatures, and are extremely lightweight to hold.
