1] Always make sure that your hair is completely clean and dry before using curling iron.
2] Make sure there is no water on the floor or on other surfaces near the outlet or the curling iron.
3] Insert the plug of the curling iron into the outlet. The curling iron could have a polarized plug, which has one pen which is wider than the other. If this is the case, this plug will only fit into an outlet when it is placed correctly. When the plug does not fit into an outlet, make sure that you have the large pin stabbed into the correct hole. If you cannot plug in the plug without any problems, please contact an electrician; never try to force stabbing the plug into an electrical outlet.
4] Press the “ON/OFF” button on the top of the curling iron until the temperature is shown on the display. The hair styling tool will instantly warm up, but it will take about 40 seconds before it has optimal uniform heat distribution.
5] When the curling iron is at temperature, you can set the desired temperature with the +/- button at the top of the hair styling tool. The most used temperature is 180 degrees, but this depends on the type of the hair.
6] Put on the included heat-resistant gloves. Avoid each contact between bar and skin when the hair styling tool is in the “ON” position. The bar is hot and can cause burns. Furthermore, be sure to pay attention to your ears while turning or moving of the curling iron because your scalp and hands are not the only thing that you can burn.
7] Divide the hair and start with long hair with the lower locks at the bottom of your head. You can place the curling iron at the start of a lock and place it around the curling iron (a guideline in every technique is that when you turn inwards, you create more curls. And when you turn out, you create more volume.) Make sure that the hair lies flat on the bar. After this, wrap the rest of the lock around the rod. In this way the hair is well divided, the warmth is divided evenly through your hair and each part of the lock forms into the right shape. After 3 seconds of warming, let the lock fall into your palm and let it cool down for 3 seconds before you release it. The cooling down is a very important step for longevity of the curls. Always start at the bottom and then grab a lock that is higher. The closer your curling iron is to your roots, the more curls you get in your hair. If you want a full bunch of curls or waves, start with the curling iron close to the roots of your hair. However, always be careful not to burn your scalp. If you just want to have curls at shoulder height, turn the curling iron from the middle of the hair lengths.
8] Finished? Press the ‘ON/OFF’ button until the temperature is no longer shown on the display. Unplug the power cord and let the hair styling tool cool down completely on a heat-resistant surface before storing it. Never leave the styling tool in the outlet or turned on if you are not around.
