      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

      I have really straight and flat hair and I've been wanting a curling iron for a while and so when I saw this brand was on sale for really cheap on Black Friday, I got it. I absolutely loved it. I'm new to curling my hair and it's really easy for me to use and it doesn't feel like ots damaging my hair at all! 100% recommend!!!

        It didn't work on my hair. After about ten minutes, my hair went almost straight. I ended up turning it up to the hottest setting and that still didn't work. I have stubborn hair and I find the wand works best on me. I currently have a lot smaller barrel in a different brand and wanted to try the 1 1/4" barrel. Unfortunately, I returned it.

              This is terrible. I only use wands. And this is the first one that hasn't worked on my hair. I guess the saying "you get what you pay for" is true because this product was terrible and I would NEVER purchase it again!!

                    I think my main issue with this is that it was too big for my hair but I didn't find I got smooth curls- I got kinks like you would from using a curling iron wrong. I had a wand already that I liked the way it worked better so I returned this one. It heated up quick and I like to cooled tip on the end and it was a good quality piece just not for me.

                      very easy to use. creates very natural looking curls. I'm terrible at curling my hair, and this is the first curling iron I've used myself that doesn't make my hair look like garbage. I have naturally wavy hair, and it's great for touching up curls.

                                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.
