Furthermore, in order to have very defined and wide curls, a low temperature is usually recommended, while a high temperature gives a more natural effect. The basic technology of the tool is a cylinder around which to wrap the lock: this is automatically modeled and curled. The shutter speed varies according to the desired effect: a few seconds for soft curls, 8-10 seconds for wider curls, 12 seconds or more for tight and defined afro-style curls.
