From material to barrels, there’s a lot to consider while searching for a hair curler. It also depends on the hair type, texture and the kind of curler you are looking for. From ceramic to titanium and different heat settings, following are the features to look for in a hair curling iron.
Heat setting is an important feature to consider; it ensures curl hold and prevention of hair damage. If you have fine or damaged hair, a curling rod offering lower heat settings will suit your requirement. However, those with coarse and thick hair need a higher heat setting. Make sure to always apply a heat protectant before using any hair tool. Also, a curling rod providing manual control over heat setting is recommended.
Ceramic is the most common material available in curling rods as it helps distribute heat evenly. It is best for thin hair that needs controlled heat. There are many other materials like titanium which is lightweight and can handle high heat temperatures. Gold plated hair curlers can also hold high temperatures and are suitable for coarse hair.
