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

    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.

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

    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!

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

    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!

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

                I absolutely love this iron. I originally bought the Hoot Tools curling iron, but ended up returning it (made my hair frizzy)for the John Frieda verison. It makes my hair super soft, and doesn't leave clamp marks.

                Though the end product is exactly what I was looking for, the tip of the iron is short and I constantly find myself burning my fingers.

                  Control buttons are poorly placed. While rolling wand in hair, fingers touch control buttons changing the temp settings lower or turns off the iron all together.

                    Overall, I like this curling iron. Its easy to use and makes good medium sized curls. The only downfal iis at the end of the iron there is not enough space to put my hand so I've touched the hot iron a few times.
