    Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold 3/4" - 1 1/4" Tapered Iron:

    Still holds in the Florida heat. My other curling irons would take twice as long to do all my hair and then would fall am hour into being outside. With how hot it gets my curls stay all day and takes half the time. Plus there's no burnt ends like a traditional curling iron.

              Wrapping hair around barrel is difficult, hair slides off and once you do get a curl it lasts less than 30 seconds. Waste of money. Might work better with short hair.

                I have very thick hair that refuses to hold a curl. But this wand is perfect because it heats up to 450 degrees! My hair held effortlessly for 3 days with minor touch ups in the morning! It is a professional tool that's extremely effective but it's also. But reasonably priced! I couldn't be happier!

                  I've made a collection of curling irons that failed me over the years, curls didn't stay, iron didn't get very hot- something to grant immediate failure. Until this! A friend used this on me and then I HAD to have one. I have fine hair, like super fine, perms haven't even transformed my hair. But this little baby... Gives me BEAUTIFUL, LASTING curls. Extra bonus, it only takes about 20 minutes to curl my whole head (of again, fine! long hair). I'll be buying the 1 inch non tapered soon :)

                  I have never done a review of anything. This is amazing! Never been able to have waves or curls in my super straight and fine hair. I had awesome beach-babe waves on day 3. Even my husband kept saying how great my hair looked. Easy to use. Takes 10 minutes. I love it!

                      A:

                      Rainbow Gold Tapered Iron is plated in 24K gold. Both this and CeramicTI tools provide great results! For those with damaged and/or brittle hair prone to dryness, we suggest using CeramicTI tools, since they are designed to infuse hair with moisture and shine.
