Heating Irons

At the beginning of this century a system of perming was introduced which consisted of winding the hair, spirally, from points to roots, around sticks or curlers, securing the points by tying with string. A borax paste was coated onto the wound hair, muslin paper and flannel were used to cover and protect the hair. Heat was applied to each of the wound curlers and allowed to cool. Specially designed irons, similar to the older crimping irons used to form lines and crimps in hair before S-shapes were the fashion, were used to apply heat. Later elecric heaters took the place of the heating irons and the first electric hot perming system was produced.
