        Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

        I'm in love with this product! I have thin long layered hair. I use to use a curling wand on my hair every morning. When I went to Ulta, I was actually going to buy the Beachwaver. The sales associate said the Chi is the exact same thing and is half the price (I bought this curler when it was on sale). I have never been happier! I've used this product everyday for the last month and a half. This product cuts the time it takes for me to get ready in half! It curls my whole head in -0 minutes. It gives tight curls that I brush out with my fingers after the hair has cooled and it turns into amazing beachy waves that last all day and night. I've never been happier with a purchase.

        Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

        I was really skeptical about all the hype surrounding these "automatic" curling irons. The one that pulls your hair into a chamber just seemed scary to me. A friend bought a similar one to this CHI curling iron and said she loved it. I decided to bite the bullet and try it out but when I went to ULTA that particular one (can't remember the brand was sold out). The salesperson recommended this one and said it's the one they use in their salon too. It also happened to be $50 cheaper than the one I had originally come in to purchase so that was another plus. With the 20% off coupon it was a relatively fair price and when I got it home to try I decided I would have gladly paid much more! It is so easy to use and gives you a perfect curl every time. You don't have to worry about the clip at the end that would give you a "wing tip" at the end of your curls on a normal iron since this one has such a short clip. It has buttons that allow you to curl to the right or left and you can set the temperature which is also nice. I've spent years trying to become an expert at curling my own hair and have paid many stylists many hundreds of dollars because I have failed. This curling iron is exactly what I needed, I can't believe I didn't purchase it sooner!!

          This product is great. I just wish the on and off button were located in a different spot. I turned it off accidently a couple of times.

                    Plugged it in= pop, spark, fume, stink, sizzling sound. I tried my blow dryer in the exact same outlet and it works fine, so not a problem with the outlet.
                    I hope this was a fluke because it seemed to be quality, durable and like it would have been easy to use- even though I never got to.
                    Still deciding if I will give another on a second chance.

                        I love this curling iron, best one I have ever used. I like the automatic roller so that my wrist doesn't have to twist and the cord doesn't get tangled. I like the size and color of the curling iron as well.

                            So easy to use! I have very fine hair with lots of layers. I could never curl my hair on my own before I used this iron! My hair is naturally straight and this curling iron adds so much volume and the curl lasts all day without using any products!

                                I am in love with this!! I had a lot of trouble curling my hair with various wands, and was always burning my hand or just wearing out from the process. This is so easy to use, and I can curl my own hair beautifully now without any aggravation. I would highly recommend it.

                                        There is a power on and off button, and the ARC also has a manual clip that you can use to release the hair at any time.

                                      Will this work well ok African American hair? I got the Instyler and had to take it back because it didn't work well on my hair even though it is relaxed.

                                        Yes, the Automatic Rotating Curler can be used on all hair types. The temperature control allows the curler heat to be set for your specific hair type.

                                        This product is not dual voltage. It will require a converter and plug adapter to use internationally.
