                The price verse the quality is amazing!
                The iron heats up in no time, the extra long thumb handle is helpful for people with small hands, like myself. Has a wide range of temperatures. Works great on my frizzy, wavy hair!

                  I use this tool to create a loose curl/flip after using flat iron. This is a great curling iron. This is my second one. The first one lasted 10 years and only needed a replacement spring. The new one came with replace the springs, so now I have 2 !

                  • Q:

                    I have long hair (past my shoulder blades) and have used and love the 1 1/4" iron. I would love long lasting, looser, bigger, sexier curls. What size of iron would help me achieve this look? My hair texture is medium--not thick nor thin overall wavy with a slight curl. Thanks in advance!!

                  • Q:

                    I have middle back length hair that is pretty straight and usually doesn't hold a curl well. Should I get the gold or purple curling iron?

                      A:

                      Either would work well for you. The difference is the material of each -

                      CeramicTI Tourmaline (purple) - Ceramic Tourmaline surface with titanium additive emits gentle far-infrared heat and negative ions to increase hydration and shine while reducing frizz.

                      24K gold plated (gold) - Even heat distribution create long-lasting curls and waves leaving hair looking smooth and glossy.

                      NanoCeramic (black & white) - NanoCeramic barrel creates an ultra smooth surface for frizz-free styles.

                      Either the 1-1/2 in. or the 1-1/4 in. barrel model would be ideal for you! This larger size barrel works best for longer hair lengths and will give you gorgeous curls and waves.

                      A:

                      We list the temperature to use on fragile hair to be 280 degrees and normal hair 330 degrees. So in your case, it would be anywhere between 280 to 300. Try the lowest temperature first and raise as needed.
