The selection of a high quality curling tool would be perhaps the first step to derive the best hair styles using a curling rod. Hence, it would be better if you use a high quality curling rod made using ceramic, tourmaline, or titanium. It would be even better if you use a curling tool that is made using an integration of two or more of any of these materials.

Equally important is to use a curling tool with right barrel size. For instance, if you would like to have springy curls, then it is advisable to use a curling rod with a barrel weighing just.75 inch. This is also suitable for people with short as well as fine hair. Likewise, for natural curls, use a curling iron with one inch barrel. Further, it would be enough if you use a curling rod with barrel of 1.5 - 2 inches for creating cascading waves. For best results, use a curling rod with adjustable heat settings. This in turn would help to adjust the heat settings to suit the texture of your hair.
Prior to curling your hair, prepare your hair by shampooing it and then use a heat protectant spray or gel on your damp hair. Then blow dry and divide your hair into small sections. The next step is to plug in the curling tool. When it reaches the desirable temperature, unclip a section of your hair to place it within the curling rod. Now glide down the curling tool starting from the scalp. When the iron reaches the tip of the hair, roll up and hold it for about ten seconds. Repeat the same procedures with all the other sections of your hair.
Once the whole process is finished, flip your hair and shake it. Then use a quality styling gel to add to the gorgeousness of your hair curls.
