    My daughter has beautiful long, thick, wavy hair that never holds a curl. It normally takes us about an hour and a half to even try to get it to curl and the curl never holds. This iron is amazing and the curls held all day!!

        Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

        I returned this after one use. It made long lasting curls, but I bought it because of recent carpal tunnel surgery & hand weakness, & it was too heavy, bulky & hurt my hand & wrist. Ease of use probably would have improved if I had kept it, but it's less damaging on my hand to continue using my smaller, lighter iron that is fairly quick for me.

                  Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

                  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! I'm traveling overseas for 3 weeks and I'm trying to find one with 220V so I can use it on my trip (mine is 110V and I'm not willing to chance blowing it out since I use it EVERY DAY).

                  I purchased this curling iron in the store about a year ago. I went in wanting the beachwaver and the sales associated talked me into the CHI since it was so much cheaper. I went home right away to start playing with it and test it out. I have very fine hair (albeit a ton of hair on my head). Typically my hair does not hold a curl with a normal curling iron - it will fall out after only a few hours and my hair will be limp by the end of the day. The curling iron was strange to use at first with the automatic curl, but it just took me playing with it one time to really get the hang of it. When I purchased the product, I had hair that was down to my bra line, about 6 months ago, I cut it to a shoulder length bob. I still use this curling iron every day - even with my new shorter do! I can get a great bouncy loose curl, a beachy wave, or tighter ringlets. If confused about how to use this curling iron, there are plenty of youtube videos showing the different techniques to achieve the different looks.

                        One way to achieve a looser curl using the CHI Arc would be to use larger sections of hair for each curl.

                        A:

                        This would depend greatly on the texture of the hair and the desired style. With textured hair being defined as fine, medium, or coarse, the appropriate heat setting for the individual hair texture would need to be used to achieve a curled style without having to first straighten it.

                        A:

                        Press the automatic rotating button gathering the hair until you reach the top of your head. Hold the iron horizontally while gathering, but tilt it to a slight angle once you reach the top of your head. Slightly release the clamp of the iron once it's at the top of your head. It is important to keep the curling iron moving, allowing just enough time for the curl to mold and then releasing it. This iron features a beep indicator which should assisting with ease of styling.
