      I have purchased this brand before this is my 3 purchase due to the quality this will probably be my last. This one particularly the heat setting is a little off I have it at a 350 and it's just warm to the touch.

        Grabs hair a bit tight and snags it, but not sure if it is just because it is so new

                  Works good on high heat and made the wave I needed but I had to do small pieces so it took long. I was hoping to use on medium and that high would take more hair.

                  Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

                  This definitely takes some getting used to. It doesn't come with a heat-protectant glove, like I hoped it would. I have the 1" size and it's a little hard to maneuver. I used the heat setting in the middle, as suggested, but it might work better on hotter temperatures for my hair. I'm not going to give up on it just yet, but I would really be cautious about buying it.

                    I use it after my hair is slightly styled straight (I have thick, curly hair) to create some beachy, bouncy waves.

                        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 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.
