Every woman wants to be beautiful and it is common to hear people saying that the beauty of a woman is her hair. So what is your hairstyle? What makes you stand out among all the other women? In this article, I will be talking about how you can use a wand to make loose curls. With the advancement in technology, a lot of changes have been experienced in the hair and beauty industry. The flat iron was the most popular tool in hair styling, but now, most women prefer using a curling wand due to its flexibility. So how do you use a curling wand to make those loose curls that you have always hoped for? Read on to get some very important tips on how best to use this tool. It is time to make your colleagues envious as they watch the change in your hair styling! Choose the right curling wand The first thing that you should do is to make sure that you have the right tool for this job. Curling wands are probably the best tools to use as they allow you to make any type of a curl, starting with super tight curls to very loose curls. This is determined by the manner in which you twist the hair layer around its barrel. To avoid damaging your hair, I would recommend that you choose curling wands that are made up of tourmaline or ceramic as research has shown that, these materials are very friendly and may not interfere with your locks. Prepare your hair Before you start working on your hair, I always advise my fellow women to make sure that their hair is ready by first nourishing it. Just like you do while straightening your hair with a straightener. You can do this by using an ultra moisturizing. This is done in order to deal with the driest hair patches to ensure that you are working on curls that are very shiny and also full of life. After this, use a towel to dry up your hair, after which you can add some Dove Curls Defining Mousse. This product is very important as it boosts the curls, as well as smoothen your cuticle. After this, it is very important that you give your hair some enough time to air dry. You can also use a hair dryer to ensure that your hair is very dry before you start the curling process. Working on wet hair is disastrous as it may damage your tresses. Heat regulation After you have fully dried your hair, you are now set to start the curling process. Plug in your styling tool for preheating as you work on your hair sectioning it. Regulate the heat intensity as you work on your hair to avoid accidents or damages to your hair. The amount of heat to use is determined by the type of your hair. If your hair is too thick, you might be required to use more heat as compared to someone whose hair is soft. Still, on heat, it is very advisable to wear the special gloves that come with most of these curling wands. With time, you will learn to use this tool without needing these gloves. Start curling After you are done with all the above steps, you can now start curling your hair. Start by picking a section of your hair, wrap it at the base and start moving towards the tip. Hold your wand in position for about five to seven seconds to set your curl. Heat Protectant Although you can regulate the temperature of your curling wand, it is very important that you ensure that you have placed the heat tamer in position. This must be done as a protective measure to prevent burning accidents or damage to your hair. Can I use a flat iron to make loose curls? Although it is possible to make loose curls using a flat iron, I find the curling wand better. When working on your hair, flexibility is key and the curling wand is able to offer more flexibility than the flat iron. It is very important that you find what works the best for you.
