          I like it. I just wish I could've found it in the 3/4 inch barrel. The curls are too loose and don't stay long. But that might just be me.

            Better than other curling irons

            Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

            I have tried using a curler a few times. I bought one that you needed a glove for, and I tried and tried, bit it was just too hard to keep the hair around the curling iron and hold it with a glove especially on the opposite side. So I bought this one. It is easier to use with the automatic curling aspect. Much easier. I was actually able to curl most of my hair. I ran into a few issues though. What do you do with ends? If you don't have ends with the same length, it is harder to curl and takes longer. Some ends slip out. If you keep the end outside of the iron, it is not curled. The auto curl thing, on each side I ran into the same challenge with using a different hand or confusion regarding curl in the front or back. Since I am right handed, one side was easier than the other. The not-easy side, I ended up burning my skin. The rotating thing kept going and burned a bit of my skin and two months later I am still treating the scar. It was awful. I know it is just a matter of learning, but it should not be so hard to the point of burning me! The curls didn't stay till the next day. When I woke up they were gone and replaced with frizzy hair, so I sent it back. If i put in so much trouble and it doesn't even stay the next day, it is just not worth it. But I have thick, dense, curly hair slightly below my shoulders. I imagine it would be different for someone with think hair. My natural curls hold much better. I really wish I could use this better though, I have seen gorgeous curls on women who do it, but this was just not for my hair type.

                I love how fast it takes to heat up. The twirling feature is the best part about the curling iron. I have had many complements on my hair since I have started using it. It was a great purchase.

                Occasional use. Have naturally curly hair. Makes curling your hair a simple task for those who have a hard time using a regular curler.

                  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!!

                      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.
