May 14, 2024

Styling your hair to get those perfect curls and waves shouldn’t come at the expense of its health.

However, when you’re working with heat, many of the styling tools available on the market can cause serious damage to your locks.

Let’s help you take back the power and give you those bombshell waves without the adverse effects on your hair. Stick with us as we give you four game-changing tips on choosing a hair curler that causes virtually no damage to your silky strands. First, let’s find out what the damage is.

1.   Don’t Buy Cheap

There are some things in life that you just don’t skimp on, and your curling iron should be one of them. This is your hair we’re talking about, and cheaper tools usually don’t offer the features and power, which means you’ll generally use them for longer, and overheating occurs.

2.   Look For Curlers With Temperature Control

A high-end curling iron gives you the power, and it makes all the difference in preventing damage when styling. Some temperatures are either too hot or too cold for the different hair types, and using a tool with temperature control gives you the ability to turn down the heat and prevent long-term hair breakage.

3.   Opt For Titanium Or Ceramic Curlers

Another key to preventing hair damage is the type of materials your hair curler is made out of. Two key players that are less damaging to hair are ceramic and titanium curling irons. When used properly, these types of curling irons have the ability to distribute heat evenly, which not only helps prevent hair damage but also creates a longer-lasting wave or curl.

Titanium hair curlers get much hotter and, therefore are better suited to those with thicker or more coarse hair that can handle more heat and actually require more heat to get the best curl.

Ceramic hair curlers, which won’t get as hot as titanium ones, are better for thinner and finer hair, which is more likely to break when exposed to intense heat. GHD hair curlers feature an advanced ceramic coating applied to the barrel to for a smooth, high-shine curl while protecting your beautiful locks.

4.   Go Clampless

It’s a small but super handy feature of most curlers, but unfortunately, the clamp does play a role in causing damage when styling. Yes, it means more multitasking because you will need to hold your section in place while curling, but your ends won’t get fried. You’ll also achieve more loose, beachy waves and your hair will be all the more healthy for it.

Final Thoughts

Healthy hair is always the most beautiful, and to achieve the best curls, you need to protect your hair by using a hair curler that won’t cause damage. So, serve looks that bring the heat by opting for hair curlers that you can control the temperature of, using ceramic or titanium technology, and not using a clamp if possible.
