Cord Tangles Constantly

By Lisa

About Me Beauty Conscious

Pros

  • Heats Up Fast

Cons

  • Time Consuming

Best Uses

    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

    Although there is a swivel cord, it constantly gets tangled, especially when attempting barrel curls in long hair. I had to hold the iron upside down by the cord to untangle it each time, otherwise it stays in a big knot.

    Also the on/off switch is in a poor location.

    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

    Did not work on my fine hair. The grabber did not make a tight enough fit against the barrel to keep my strand of hair in, it just slid right through. And the type of metal it is made of is rough and snagged on my hair.

        This works great! It heats quickly, has a heat protection cage, and the curls hold their shape even with my fine hair. Would buy this in a larger barrel size, too!

        Pros

          Cons

          • Cord Gets Very Twisted
          • Easy To Hit Off Button
          • Poor Quality

          Best Uses

            Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

            As you curl your hair with this, the cord just keeps twisting and twisting, and even if you try to untwist it, it never gets really straight. Also, I hit the off button ALL THE TIME. Those two things make using this curling iron just too annoying.

              Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

              I love curling my hair but with fine, shoulder length hair, sometimes curls don't last with thicker barreled irons. This one creates a tighter curl that relaxes a bit with time and creates the exact kind of curl I want.

                    Yes, the Instant Heat Styling Iron will work on long thick hair. Try starting with a lower heat setting to protect hair from damage.

                    This curling iron has dual voltage. It will automatically adjust to the proper voltage. Use an adapter plug with correct configuration, prior to use in outlet.

                    A:

                    The Turbo Heat Boost button increases the barrel temperature by 36 degrees F. This button gives the curling iron a burst of heat for faster styling. It does not need to be turned on when curling your hair.

                    A:

                    The Instant Heat Styling Iron reaches a max temperature of 180 degrees F, so setting 25 would reach 180 degrees F. The iron also features a "turbo heat boost" feature, which increases the barrel temperature by up to 36 degrees F.
