      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron:

      I had to replace my old Hot Tools iron (same model) because the spring, well, sprung...after only two years of thrice weekly use. The new iron I purchased is a lighter weight (good), but while it lost it's bulkiness, I think it lost some of the ability to curl stick-straight thick fine hair. It doesn't seem to heat up as well as the old one - I've got the heat setting turned all the way up on this one, whereas the old one I only had to turn it about halfway to get the heat setting i needed. It also snags - the old one never did.
      Instead of getting nice, neat waves, I am just getting a gentle bend and damaged-looking ends. Really disappointed in the quality of the new iron.

                    I bought this at the same time as a 1.5" iron I bought at Marshall's for half the price. The Marshall's curling iron was superior in every way. This takes a long time to heat up, does not have a digital heat reading, and snags hair alot. I wouldn't bother. I would go with a cheaper iron or a more expensive. This does nothing for the price.

                        Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron:

                        I purchased this as an upgrade to an aging curling iron. I use a professional quality flat iron but needed something better for a curling iron.

                        I was greatly disappointed in it. It does not glide over hair - it pulls/snags it. The temperature dial is loose and doesn't stay at a set temperature. Can't get it to stay on any temp but the hottest. I have no desire to fry my hair.

                        I will be returning it today and hoping to find something better.

                        I like this iron, but I think I would have enjoyed a wand better. It heats up fast and with the right products, creates awesome large wave curls. My only dislike is the clamp seems to snag hair. This could totally be operator error though. I usually straighten my hair, so I haven't had a chance to use it much.

                            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.
