      Comments about Ultra CHI 1"" Curling Iron:

      This curling iron is amazing. Ive never been able to get my curls to last more than a few hours - if that. but with this one, they last the entire day And I dont even have to use hardly any hairspray. The curls come out shiny and smooth. It is SO worth the money. I love it!

            This curler gets hot fast making it fast and effective but the end and thumb lever also get pretty hot. Only really curls about a foot and a half of hair if you have thick stubborn hair, even with super strong hair spray.

            High temp but wont damage your hair. Its cord is long and it moves at the end of the curler. The tip of the curler stays cool so you will never burn your fingers again! Love it!

                Comments about Ultra CHI 1"" Curling Iron:

                I have thin, straight hair but lots of it... and I have an awful time trying to find a curling iron that actually curls and holds the curl in my hair. I purchased this after a failed attempt with another brand (that actually has high ratings). This curling iron is PERFECT. It curls pretty quickly. I don't need to prep my hair with lots of styling product or anything. I use minimal hair spray and the curls still hold all day. I've used it on clean and dirty hair. Worked great both ways. The only concern I have is that there is no temperature control. It's not damaging my hair though, so I'm fine without! The swivel cord makes it super easy to use, too!

                        I purchased this curling iron to create a beach wave, or relaxed curl look to my hair. Normally, my curls fall out pretty quickly, but they stayed pretty great all night. This product with Matrix hair spray worked great!

                            This is will greatly depend on your hair texture; however, for a fine texture, no more than 10 sec. should provide enough heat to achieve a beautiful curl. The CHI ARC Automatic Rotating Curler is a great choice for effortless curls and now features a beep to alert you when to release the curl.
