    Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron:

    I bought not one, but two, different curling irons to see which one I would like more -- this nanoceramic and a gold barrel. The quality on these must have gone way down since I tried my mom's 7 years ago, because my smooth, shiny fine hair was a frizzy mess with both afterwards...and neither curled my hair in the slightest. Just flipped the ends out. So disappointing.

            Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron:

            I have fine, thin hair that is very long and this did absolutely nothing to my hair. I even turned the heat setting all the way up to 450 degrees, and nothing. Only a line from the clamp, but not even a wave or a slight curl from the iron after multiple attempts. I tried using product before curling, and again with no product, held my hair in until my scalp couldn't take the heat any more.... nothing. The ultra employee who suggested this curling iron had thick, coarse hair and said it works great. I just don't think it works for my hair type.

                      I use this after blowdrying my hair straight. It replaces a flat iron. I have used this exact curling iron for years and it makes my hair super smooth with just the right amount of curl.

                        Have always used the 1.5 curling iron, was extremely hesitant about this size or being ceramic. I must say it gives me the look as was looking with the 1.5 size, just enough wave, and it just 5 seconds per section.

                            A:

                            The NanoCeramic material of the barrel is ideal for color-treated, damaged, or over-processed hair. NanoCeramic means that there are finer particles of ceramic that are used in making the surface of the iron for a smoother surface that glides across hair more easily and heats more evenly. For long hair like yours, to create loose waves, we'd suggest using either the 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" barrel size.
