There are many techniques to curl your hair and lots of methods to use to do so. With the development of curling irons, we can benefit from advanced technology that can work efficiently on our hair to curl and volumize without creating damage.
Of course, now with the appearance of new brands and competition, there are more and more types and models of curling iron available, so choosing one can be quite a feat. Clipless curling irons, in particular, are becoming more and more popular each day because of their benefits and ease of use. What is so great about a clipless curling iron?
First, let’s mention the conventional curling iron, the one that is currently the most popular. Also called the spring curling iron, the spring action clip easily recognizes it along the length of the barrel. This clip makes it easier to grip hair and curl it since you just have to flick open the mechanism by pressing down with your thumb, catching a lock of hair with it, flicking it closed and rolling the curling iron upwards, holding for a few seconds then gently releasing. Some people find this curling iron to be the easiest to use and the most familiar, though others feel it can be too bulky and requires too much effort. The clip can often create marks and creases in the curls that are hard to iron out, which is why a lot of people choose clipless curling irons instead.
Clipless curling irons are a step up from spring curling irons and as the name implies, don’t have clips. Instead, the feature a tapered barrel which you wrap your hair around with your fingers ends last. Clipless curling irons have lots of advantages, for one, they don’t cause creases or dents because there’s no clip. Also, since you have to wrap the ends of your hair around the barrel last instead of first (unlike the spring curling iron), split ends and damage is avoided.
Usually, clipless curling irons come with a heat resistant glove so that you don’t burn your fingers, though you can purchase this glove separately. If you want to know of a great example of a clipless curling iron, try the Karmin G3 Salon Pro Clipless, with a polished, genuine tourmaline infused ceramic barrel that reaches 410°F and produces a gentle, efficient heat to create shiny, healthy and natural looking curls.
If you don’t want to do much effort, you can also go for the automatic curler. As with the automatic curler, you don’t have to do anything. You can do your hair curl very easily with that.
