        The product would be great if my hair would curl, for years I've looked for a good curling iron that would curl my stubborn straight hair. I used styling products and yet my hair wont curl. The curling is great Ive use it o my daughter with not problems gets really hot.

          Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

          I love this curling iron. I should have gotten a smaller barrel though. The 1.5" needs really long hair. It does give my hair a good natural looking wave. I have fine hair that does not always curl well but this creates a good look that lasts a long time!

            This product heats up fast and gives me perfect curls every time. It is very durable! I just replaced mine after 10 years of use! It works on my daughters thick straight hair and my not so thick in between curly/straight/frizzy hair.

                    For loose curls on shoulder length hair, we suggest the 1" barrel, which is the most versatile size.

                    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?
