women-hair-curlers

Just yesterday, my mother and I were discussing about a neighbor girl who has studied makeup and hairdressing from a renowned university and is earning fair enough. My little cousin overheard our conversation and asked me in surprise, “Didi, hairstyle bnane ki bhi koi padhai hoti hai?” I smiled on her surprised expression and told her that yes; hairdressing is a complete occupation now! Indeed, to our awe, some of us are spending so much while some of us are earning incredibly well by means of hairdressing.

Haircut is no more only cutting of your hair now; it’s a whole lot of science to be understood before ‘styling’ your hair. And famed salons like Jawed Habib and Lakme are actually into science-based styling of your hair. So, now that all about your hair has suddenly become so important, we just can’t simply ignore this aspect of our wardrobe and move out with a messy bun (because no big deal, now we have special tips to do even a messy bun!)

But every time we dress up, we don’t necessarily have time to go to a salon to get our hair done. So we just thought of helping you with a few simple ways in which you can style your hair all by yourself at home with some of the easy to use hair appliances like HAIR CURLERS. This article contains certain dos and don’ts while using these appliances, followed by a list of top brands of hair curlers in India, as researched by our website.

PLEASE KEEP THEM IN YOUR MIND [DOs and DON’Ts]:

·         Avoid using any such appliance regularly. Excessive heat can damage your hair, so they are meant for occasional use only

·         Keep them away from children

·         If you are using such an appliance for the first time, prefer to try it on someone else rather than yourself. This can be risky (you may burn your hand or ear)

·         Pre-heat the appliance for better results (but keep it on a safe surface carefully]

·         Prefer using a heat protection serum to protect your scalp

·         Adjust the temperature carefully according to the type of your hair

This product had one of the most interesting customer review, I ever read. I did not know whether to put it into the pros or the cons section of our reviews column. Yeah, so this guy writes on amazon that he gifted this product to his girlfriend and it was so amazing that it gave stunning curls to her hair, so much so that she got a new boyfriend and left him!!  LOL.
