      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

      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 just love this brand in general! I prefer this "wand" over the ones with a clamp. It gives the hair extra sexiness if you know what I mean

                    Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

                    This wand (that comes with a glove) is difficult to use. My hair is straight and silky and because there is no clip to keep the hair in place, the hair cannot wrap around the wand tightly enough to make a good curl. The glove is supposed to be used so that your hand keeps the hair in place rather than a clip. It does not work.

                          I had medium length super thick hair. I have never tried a tapered wand, so thought I would buy on sale for Black Friday. I'm glad I did! It works well with my naturally but unevenly wavy hair. I have even done my hair in mornings before work with this as it doesn't take too much time! For whatever reason I have yet to burn myself on this one, yet I have a couple times on spendier non-tapered wand. I got the middle size, 1 1/4. Also like that is has temp selection, but with my thick hair normally use higher temps.

                                Hi,

                                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.

                                  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.
