The Straightening device – Kur’curla


Apatani lady

Human being is the  most unsatisfied living organism on the face of earth. Human being in their own human sphere wants to change what they have and attempt to achieve what they don’t have. They always crave for a little more of everything. When they are born they are the angels in skin and bones. When the wisdom grows in they love to change the way they are. Craving for changes became traditions and traditions became fashion. The change looked inevitable. The Kayan tribes of Burma wore those neck rings from the age of five to beautify their female. Whereas, Apatani tribe of our own land in Arunachal Pradesh, who were born so beautiful that they were the constant prey to the other tribes, de-beautified the woman folks by piercing-in their nose for those ugly nose rings.  French came with the concepts of Corsets to look slimmer on the waist. Change indeed was only constant throughout the Humane  life.
Inspired by the word change, a team of crazy Scientist, Engineers and Beauty therapist joined hands to offer the man-kind a traditional-new approach to de-curl the black thin strands of cells on the human head, commonly known as Hairs. The project is dedicated for the people looking for the un-curling or wanted to straighten the hair on their head. A Research was carried out and traditional ways analyzed. Sharing you  the paper published by the team for usage:


The object of change:
The object is a thin strand of cells with various natural colors like black, brown and blonde. The strands change colors to Grey upon growing old. The strands undergo myriads of color changes in youth and early old ages. The object comes in thin or thick sizes, as well as curled or straight in nature.

Objective of the project:
To uncurl the curled strands using natural ingredients and natural process.

Issues with Existing Methods to Straighten :
At the moment of research only following few methods are the known methods of meeting the objectives of straightening the hair strands.

1.        Ceramic Straightner : Uses heat therapy to uncurl the strands. This has the disadvantages of burning and ultimately damaging the strands.
2.       Chemical Shampoos : Harsh Chemical in the shampoos could Damage the shiny strands and may lead to scalp allergy, hair fall etc.
         3.       Gar-iron Therapy : Using the heat therapy of old age Garment Iron (Gar-Iron) may lead  to     burning of hair thereby damaging the same and sometimes may even burn scalp and hands.
4.      Ency Therapy : uncalculated over weight of the Encyclopedia Britannica may lead to flattening of the hair strands and may lead to thinning of the strands. This may eventually lead to breaking of hair.
5.       Rollin Therapy : Use of Rolling pin may produce uneven pressure points due to uncalculated hand pressure. This would lead to breaking of hair in longer run.
6.      Clothyclip Therapy: may lead to Health and safety issues while standing on a stool and trying to straighten the hair. This could also lead to formation of kinks due to excessive pinching from the garment clips.

Now the New Engineering concept:
The black and beautiful strands tend to assume a temporary straighten shape with artificial stiffeners and usage of calculated force to keep it straight. The design of the straightner is to be free from any energy consumption and uses  application of natural resources. The device is having a good degree of Mobility and versatile in usage. The concept of straightening is inspired from the ancient traditions of Sufi and their devotional practices of Sama.

The Straightening device –Kur’curla : (pronounced as Kur –(as in Kurmuri) –‘koo-rla; noun, meaning – no meaning so enjoy usage)

2.       The ring is connected to two pieces of light carbon steel rods which forms a U-shape at the top. At the centre of the rod is a spring which helps the assembly to remain stretched.  The top has a hanging hair brush to fasten the hair.
3.       The U-shaped assembly and the ring is covered with a mesh of light nylon fabric which covers the rod, hair and ring.
