        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.

                    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.

                        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.
