        Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

        I tried using a cheap $14 curling iron and it wasn't holding my curls. Then I purchased this fabulous iron & it holds, I was say I did purchase mouse l, sea salt & hair spray to help hold these curls since my hair is pretty straight. That's why I only have four stars because I wasn't too sure, I'm not a pro on curlers. It does the job for beautiful beachy waves I was trying to get, it looks beautiful. I just don't have anything to compare it too

            Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

            This works great and from he curling iron that I used to use this cuts my time in half. It heats up quickly. The only thing that bothers me is the place where you put your thumb can get pretty hot because if you look under it, some of the metal is there so it heats up some of the plastic. I have to put my thumb on the edge

                    A:

                    Yes, you can certainly use the Rainbow Gold Curling Iron. For fine hair, we recommend setting to a lower temperature setting for best results.

                    Hot Tools' curling irons work best on hair that is shoulder length or longer, though you can certainly use them on shorter lengths!

                    Hot Tools Styling Iron Cleaner wipes off burnt-on, caked-on styling product from the plates/barrel of your heat styling tool; it features a safe, non-toxic formula that has no adverse effect on the finish of your tool.
