          Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

          I really wanted to love the Chi and did - for one use. My first Chi Arc worked great the first time. The second use it only heated to 12 degrees. I exchanged for a second Chi Arc, believing it was a fluke. My second Arc worked great the first time. The second use, there was no rotation, only a growl as if the motor was shot. Okay Chi Arc - I gave up. Had to drive to an Ulta thirty miles from my house each time so purchased a Beachwaver S1. Hope it works better.

          This product took a little getting used to but once I figured it out, it was great! I have long, thick hair and it really was helpful, especially in the back of my hair. It takes less time than a regular curling iron and the curls last for several days.

            Easy to us product. You might not need it if your experienced at curling hair but it does save time. It's exactly the same iron as the Beachwaver S1. Same barrel size and length, 1inch and 5.5 respectively. The clap is slightly larger

              Most curlers cannot get my hair to curl and if they do, the curls are out in 30 min but they actually stay in with this product. And it's super easy to use so I can even do it myself which I couldn't before. I normally wouldn't spend over 100 on one curler but this was more than worth it.

                    I am in love with this curling iron! My husby bought me the conair curl secret & it was big, heavy, bulky & awkward. Now as for the chi arc it's amazing. I curl my hair in half the time of a traditional curling iron. It does not give my wrist fatigue. It's lightweight and really nice to look at. It's heats up in 40 seconds. Give it a try you'll fall in love like I did.

                          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.
