Curling wands for thick hair should withstand higher temperatures of heat. This is important for many reasons. First, the high temperature of a wand will more effectively set thicker hair in place. Thicker hair can sometimes be difficult to set it in place, hence why heat is needed. Second, a higher temperature curling wand will maintain your curls for much longer periods of time, so you’re style won’t fall flat too quickly.
The type of curling wand that we most recommended for thick hair is those made of titanium. This type of metal can withstand high temperature and do not snag your hair. The surface of a titanium curling wand is completely smooth and therefore very easily to manipulate with your hair.
If you have thick hair, then you’ll have already noticed that your hair falls out of place quickly if you prepare correctly.
- Clean your hair and condition (see co-washing)
- Naturally let your hair dry. It is important that you do not start using the hot rollers while your hair is wet. That will damage your hair.
- Apply a fixative spray.
- Apply a heat protection spray.
- Apply your hot rollers
- Re-apply fixative spray.
The key element is to use fixative spray on cleaned hair before and while using the hot rollers. Using fixative once the hot rollers are off can be done, but once the styling is completed.If you have any questions or concerns, let them know in the comment box below or contact us.
