Don’t you wish you could instantly create loose curls, easily and without winding hair around a burning hot iron, causing crimps, breakage, and even painful tangles? You can with a professional curling machine. Most curl machines allow you to customize the curl’s tightness, direction, time it’s in the machine, and lets you choose an optional steam setting. You simply feed a section of hair into the machine, set it to start curling, and then it releases when the curl is complete (or alerts you and lets you easily release if hair becomes tangled inside). If traditional curling methods have not worked, a professional curling machine is worth a try. The best models cost just shy of $150, but you can find a budget model for around $50.
