    Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

    I have used this Conair curling iron for many, many years. When I first bought it way back when, I was a bit more strapped for funds than I am today. Now that I have the ability to purchase some of those fancy higher end models (which I'm not sure even work any better!), I really don't want to! This has been a very reliable, fast and dependable product! I have this iron in multiple sizes (depending on the style of my hair) and have found it to be a great tried and true iron! I have only had to replace it once and that was due to it just reaching the end of it's life after daily use and many years of hair spray buildup that was needed to achieve the look I was after!

    I would highly recommend this iron. I will be purchasing another just for travel purposes since it gets hot in approximately 30-45 seconds. I just can't beat that!

        Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

        I needed a curling iron quick for a trip I was taking, and didn't want to spend a ton of money. For the price (20 bucks), this curling iron was good. I'm used to a ceramic curler, which I think works better on my hair, however, I have used Conair products before. I wish that the end of the curling iron had more plastic to it, as I almost burned myself several times when rolling the barrel up towards my scalp, but hey-that's just my own personal preference.

        I would recommend this for someone who does not want to spend a ton of money on a more expensive, higher end curling iron.

          I've used this brand of curling iron for years, but the last two I've purchased are not getting hot enough to style my hair. Doubtful that I purchased 2 duds so I purchased the Hot Topic brand about a month ago. So far, so good.

                      Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

                      First let me say...I have super thin, long, blonde hair that NEVER holds a curl. Even when it's not hot and humid out, I could curl my hair and it would be stick straight again in 30 minutes, even after applying hairspray. I have bought curling irons that are $200 and curling irons that are $50 but NONE of them have worked as well as these Conair ones! They are the ONLY curling irons that constantly hold my curls and they're such a bargain. I have them in every barrel size because I love them so much and all of my sorority sisters are always asking to borrow them because they work so well. I also love these because you can do pretty thick sections of hair and they will still curl, but maybe this is just me because I have such thin and straight hair to begin with. Honestly, the ONLY complaint I could ever have about these is that they sometimes snag your hair. Overall, I think these irons are better than some of the high end ones for a fraction of the cost!

                        My hair is very fine. I use it to try to build some body into my hair, otherwise it is just flat against my head. It seems to be working so I am glad about that. I also bought it because it was one of your cheapest curling irons. I do not like spending large amounts of money for a curling iron. I would have preferred even cheaper than what I paid but there was nothing else.

                          I am kind of dissapointed at this buy because my flat iron seems to be doing a better job at giving me the curls that I wanted than this curling iron. Not sure how I really feel about it. I bought it mostly to curl my clip-on (real human) hair extensions and this curling iron doesn't seem to do the job. I haven't lost faith, though, and will keep looking for ways to use it. Also, the heat settings aren't the best, in my opinion. You need to put it in the highest setting in order to be able to even tell it's heated up.

                              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.
