          Comments about John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4" Curling Iron:

          I wasn't really familiar with curling irons but wanted to start using them so I set out to buy a cheap (hopefully halfway decent) iron. This was on sale and I like John Frieda's shampoos so I decided on it. It is surprisingly easy to maneuver and heats up in a flash. When sliding it down my hair it moves so smoothly I'm not concerned about is creating a million split ends in the process. A week in and I'm in love with it!

                  I was afraid I wouldn't like this curling iron. I was wrong!! I love how my hair doesn't get stuck. It's like it's smoother than any other iron I've ever used. It curls my hair quick, and my curls last a lot longer.

                    Comments about John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4" Curling Iron:

                    I can't count the number of curling irons I've been through. I was a faithful Hot Tools user for years and despise them now (springs constantly fail), and I fell in love with a Revlon iron just two have two stop working within months. I thought I'd branch out and try this brand. It is so awkward to hold. The hand part is as wide as the barrel so it's not easy to maneuver. The buttons cover the entire handle as well, so I was constantly stopping to see if I shut it off or changed the temperature on accident. The major con for me was the tip at the end of the barrel. The piece needs to remain cool so you can grab it when curling. I nearly burnt my fingers trying to hold it. I also decided the 1.25" is not for me. A 1" works much better for spiral/wavy curls. These were way too loose.

                      I loved this curling iron but it only lasted 9 months before it died on me. I used it about once a week and created nice curls. I would want to buy it again but don't want to have to buy a new one every year.

                        I love how fast it heats up. It's really good for long hair. My hair is just below shoulders. I don't usually use a 1", but it works great
