    Comments about John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4" Curling Iron:

    The curling iron heats up quickly and is easy to wrap hair around cylinder. Also, you don't have to worry about hitting on/off button. Reason I switch curing iron is because my other one would shutoff because on/off button so sensitive.

        This curling iron is very easy to usee and while it kept my hair smooth and frizz free, it did not put a single curl into my hair. Not even loose waves.

            Comments about John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4" Curling Iron:

            I bought this online, after reading reviews everywhere about it I decided "OK, it's within my budget and has a decent rating" I've had it for more than a year now and all I can say is I barely use it. Mainly because every time I've been excited to use it, I take it out and curl my hair & like many others have said the placing of the buttons is so unconscious of design that you're bound to have your finger hit the off button by accident, shut it off and waste your time.

            Not only that once I got careful not to shut it off, my curls come out smooth but not amazing, and seriously by the 2nd or 3rd hour, even after spraying my hair with tons of strong hold hairspray it goes flat, with only little waviness left, if that. I have a cheaper small wand curling iron that works better but I get tighter curls from it, & usually I just end up using my CHI flat iron because that actually creates curls that I can go to bed & wake up the next say to wavy hair.

            Comments about John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4" Curling Iron:

            I can't believe this got as high of reviews as it did. My hair holds curl very well & it simply does not work-any curl I achieved fell out within an hour! After spending 30+ minutes curling I was not happy. Even to get it to actually curl not just leave the ends looking rounded under, took up to 3 times on one piece of hair. Like the other reviewers said, it simply does not stay hot enough.

            this product does not seem to heat hot enough to put curl in. I recently cut my hair much shorter and found hot rollers to be much harder to use. I purchased this to but some curl in the ends and it just is not too terribly effective... I have gone back to hot rolling what I can...just not hot enough. I have normal hair that will take and hold curl rather well...

            Cant change heat settings, turns on hot but then the heat comes down about 90 degrees in a matter of a couple of minutes so it takes a lot longer for me to curl my hair

              It was ok. Needs to be hotter. Doesn't hold the wave that long. Made my hair soft though.
