    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

    This Conair is the best. I tried other brands and sizes and I could not get the results I was looking for. With this product, my hair holds a curl and keeps it. I will never try another brand again; this is the best.

                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.

                    The Instant Heat Curling Iron is dual voltage, so you will only need a plug adapter for travel.

                • Q:

                  I know this curling iron is dual voltage and you said it would work with an adaptor. But if I am traveling to Italy and I already have a converter, will the curling iron work with the converter or do I need to buy an adaptor?

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

                    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.
