Everything you need to know about curling irons revealed. How to know which size iron to choose? It’s all about the end result you envision for yourself, plus the thickness and length of your hair. If you have short hair, you want to use a smaller iron. And if you already have wavy hair , choose an iron that’s the size of the waves you want to see.
Do always use heat protectant before you curl
Do wrap the hair around the barrel before clamping it and closing the iron
Do use a curling iron if you already have curling iron. Use a bigger iron if you want to stretch out your curl out a little.
Don’t apply heat protectant on your top layer only. Take it from the pros and apply section by section.
Don’t clamp the curling iron at your ends and wind up. Instead do what stylists do and start at the roots and wind in. This way your ends aren’t exposed to the heat as long( the ends are the most fragile part of your hair).
Don’t overheat your hair. Once you’ve wound the hair, 10 seconds is all it takes.
