When you travel abroad, you are going to want to maintain the same look regardless of where you are – you will not suddenly wish to revert to your straight-haired state just because you are in Paris, Moscow, Nairobi, or Caracas. You might think that your regular ceramic curling iron will be all you need to bring – with a plug adapter for the European-style plug, of course, since power cords from the United States will not fit directly into European sockets. However, it is a good idea to bring a curling iron that you might not consider using in the U.S.A. – a dual-voltage curling iron that can handle several levels of voltage. The same is true in reverse […]
However, you should pick your curling iron or curling irons carefully – because some kinds of these implements can damage your hair, especially if it is soft or if the individual hairs are thin, both of which conditions will make your hair sensitive to heat. Any kind of irregularity in the heating – different levels of heat in various parts of the barrel’s surface (the barrel being the part of the curling iron you wrap your hair around), too much heat flow for even a few seconds, and so on – can cause damage to your hair. Since your hair is a valued part of your appearance, you don’t want to risk making it look scorched or otherwise damaged – […]
However, traveling is also likely to be one of the times when you want to look your best. Many people are going to see you during your travels, and you want to arrive at your destination with your curls glossy, elastic, and flowing freely, catching the notice and admiration of the people who meet you there, whether they are business associates, friends, or members of your family. So, if you are likely to be doing a lot of traveling – or are planning even just one big trip – you may want to seriously consider buying a travel curling iron to let you curl and touch up your hair anywhere on the globe. When you in the process of picking […]
If you’re looking for a truly outstanding gift, the best curling iron to seek is a ceramic curling iron. These irons heat evenly, keeping hair safe and glossy, and preventing damage – and the last thing you want is for your gift to cause dull spots or split hairs to mar her sexy coiffure. The barrel is made of ceramic, which transmits heat in a smooth fashion, ensuring that the iron works well and keeps her hair safe and unblemished.
Different kinds of hair respond in a different fashion from being heated by a curling iron. You should take a good look at your hair, if you haven’t already thought about this, and see whether, in comparison to other people, it is at the softer or the harder end of hair texture, and also whether the individual hairs are slender and fine, or thick and tough. Soft hair and fine hair are both more sensitive to heat than is thick or hard hair. If you have soft hair, you need a curling iron with lower temperature settings – in fact, higher settings may be unnecessary, since these would tend to scorch your hair and make it duller, or cause the […]
Although curling irons are a great way to pep up plain, straight hair, and can totally change your look from ordinary to fabulous in a matter of half an hour or an hour, the way they operate – by heating up a barrel of metal or ceramic around which your hair is wound – means that you also have a very hot object close to your fingers and those of anyone else who happens to be sharing the space you live in. Depending on how much heat you need to curl your hair – with softer, finer hair needing less heat (and, indeed, being likely to be damaged – frizzed, burned, or dulled – by too high a temperature) – […]
Wrapping your hair around the curling irons barrel, you can hold it there for different periods of time at different levels of heat to give anything from a gentle, rippling wave to a series of large, looping curls that will get you plenty of attention, plenty of compliments, and make you feel like an actress from a major movie set or a celebrity – hot, striking, and beautiful. A good cordless curling iron has some real benefits that appeal to many people who like to wave or curl their hair, and that you might find useful, too. This type of curling iron, obviously, doesn’t have a cord – and since curling irons are used with a twisting, winding motion to […]
