              A little tricky to use but worth the effort. Heat glove that comes with it very helpful. My hair is thin, straight and fine texture. This wand gave my hair a "beach wave" look with my first use without damaging hair.

                          I purchased this NanoCeramic Tapered Iron (wand) for myself and was a bit nervous to use it. But It is so easy to use and very effective! I haven't needed to use the glove that came with it. I have naturally curly hair but I do have some parts that have been damaged due to excessive straightening, so I've used this wand to re-curl those parts, and it works great! LOVE IT!

                                I've had thick hair for my whole life. When it came to curling my hair, I would have to wait more than the expected time to curl it. By the time I was halfway with my hair, my arm was already tired with all the weight of my hair. This product I absolutely love! It created good curls in a matter of seconds and what I love the most is that I don't have to wait such a long time to curl my hair anymore.

                                      I have super fine, pin straight hair and it's currently long and I am on the fence about getting a bob. What size barrel would you recommend that would work if I keep my hair long or cut it? Looking for beachy waves.

                                      I have an angled lob, in the front it is collarbone length and in the back it is above my shoulders. Which size will be best to achieve beachy/wavy hair?

                                      My hair is medium to thick, and is naturally curly/wavy but straightens/blow dries easily thanks to keratin treatments in the past.

                                        1-1/4" would be perfect! For chin length, you can even use a smaller barrel such as the 1" to achieve waves.

                                      I'm not sure about the size I need. I have shoulder length, thick, straight hair. What is the diameter of each end on the 1 1/4 inch. I want curls not just waves. Which size do you recommend?

                                        It measures 3/4" at the tip and 1-1/4" at the base. If you want waves, that one or the 1 1/2" option would be great 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.
