        Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

        I purchased the 1 1-4 inch version, and I love the curls this size gives me. I've always had a 1 inch, and could never make my hair look like the YouTube beauty gurus' hair. My hair comes down to the middle of my chest, and is super straight. Each strand is thin, but there's a lot of it. I've used this curling iron a few times now, and it's working great for me.

              I don't know why, but this curling iron doesn't heat. It did for about a week, and then nothing! I've tried using other outlets, and still it's as cold as if it was unplugged...the light is on, so I know there is power going to it. So disappointed! I threw the packaging away so no return can be made. Hold onto your packaging. I emailed Hot Tools, and heard nothing. What a waste of money....

              Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

              I use this for a little bit of volume for my stick straight hair. My hair is also really fine. Only issue is if you have the foot out or get hair too close to the thumb lever it rips your hair out. I try to be mindful of not putting the foot out. Cord is long which is nice!

                      A:

                      For chin length and shorter styles, choose a smaller barrel size such as the 3/4" or 1" barrel for best results.

                      A:

                      We recommend setting your curling iron to a higher heat setting if you have thick, coarse, or unmanageable hair. We suggest experimenting with the temperature settings until you find the setting that is perfect to achieve your desired results.

                      A:

                      This product is not dual voltage, so it would require a converter as well as an adapter for use in international outlets.

                      1-1/2 in. barrel model would be ideal for you! This larger size barrel works best for longer hair lengths and will give you gorgeous waves.

                      The most important thing to know to reduce damage is to use the correct temperature on the iron for your hair type and texture. Additionally, we recommend using styling products with thermal protectant properties to help further reduce damage to hair. If your hair is already damaged and prone to breakage, you may prefer to use a ceramic iron such as Hot Tools CeramicTI Tourmaline Curling Iron:

                    Is this curling iron okay for fine hair?

                    Also, does it cause damage more so than other curling irons because it is metal, instead of ceramic/tourmaline?
