      Comments about John Frieda Volume Curl 1-1/2" Curling Iron:

      Ive been looking for a good curling iron, but not a hefty price tag and this curling iron meets both of those. As some of the other reviews stated, it does make a slight sound when heating up, but seems to go away. I purchased the 1 1/2 but thinking I'll purchase the 1 1/2 as well.

          I wanted to add volume and a slight curve, not curl. This is gentle on my color-treated fine hair, is simple to use, and delivers just the look I wanted.

              It's great for smoothing my naturally curly hair into a straighter, non-frizzy look, but it doesn't glide easily along hair strands and the controls are in a inconvenient place, causing you to unintentionally turn the heat up or down as you curl your hair. But I love the size of the barrel for taming my unruly curls.

              The price is definitely good. I didn't like that it made a weird noise when held close to my ear, like static electricity. I returned it hoping I could find something made in US, but have not had much luck!

              I have been through so many different curling irons over the past few years and finally decided it was time to invest in something a little more expensive. I had gifted this to my mother and she loved it! Whenever I went home I had the pleasure of using it. It doesn't pull hair, the cord doesn't tangle and it gets hot enough fast enough.

                  Comments about John Frieda Volume Curl 1-1/2" Curling Iron:

                  It's not bad and it's not great. I purchased it because I wanted a curling iron that provided a larger curl. This one fit the bill at a good price. It became annoying to have to reset my desired temerature each time I turned it on, and the buttons are situated in a place where I naturally hold the handle so I found myself accidentally resetting the settings all the time. There's a disconcerting electrical buzz, and in the end the curl it created wasn't that great (sometimes my hair stuck straight out. I just don't know if that was the fault of my hair or the product). In the end I chalked it up to you get what you pay for and went back to my old product.

                    I use this curling iron to make my hair look like "old Hollywood glam." It is easy to use, and the larger size makes bigger waves and curls in my hair. Love it!
