          I bought this because I wanted something to create the perfect beach waves. I have short thin hair so I didn't think I would have any problems with a good quality product but my hair would not hold a curl at all

              I had this same iron for about 5+ years decided
              It was time to replace. I went back to this iron because I loved it before, but when this arrived, it was not the same curling iron. It was much lighter, which I took as a good sign! Less stress on my wrists while styling! But the lighter iron meant it was made of a different material and did not curl as well or hold curl at all. I us my iron every other day and in between as touch up. With this "new" version, my curls barely held for a few hours. Returned this iron for the Beachwaver. We will see how that works.

                      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.
