        Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

        I purchased this same size and brand curling iron only it was the more expensive black and white ceramic model. It snagged my hair and was just a pain to use. I went back to their base model and it works wonderfully! I had my original one for many, many years when it finally died. I am going to stick to this model though since it works the best with my hair.

            I had my other curling iron for almost 8 years. I originally had the purple ceramic one, until I dropped it and it shattered into a million pieces.
            So I went to Ulta in search of a new one, and the gold one was on sale so I thought I'd give it a try. It does curl, but the curls didn't last. I'm used to my curls lasting almost 2 days with my ceramic one. With this gold one I even had to curl some sections twice.

            I think I'll return this and just use my flat iron.

              My last Hot Tools rod lasted me about 8 years. I loved it and I always got compliments on my hair. The 1 1/4 is great for medium length hair. I've also got their wand as well. The curls from the wand definitely last longer but I like the curl size/style from the rod. Plus I got it on sale. I'd buy this brand over and over again.

                      • 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!!

                          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.

                          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.
