            Worked well in the beginning except it didn't seem to get as hot as promised. Used it about twice a week only since I wear my hair differently every day. Died before its 1 yr birthday. Hesitate to purchase this brand again.

            Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

            This is my second Hot Tools iron. My other is a 1" diameter, and the curls are just too tight for casual day to day. I purchased the 1 1/4" when it was on sale and do not regret it. The iron heats up quickly and works great. I spray with a little hairspray then curl - my curls last through the day and into the next. It does take a fair amount of time, but that's due to thickness of my hair - not the curling iron itself. The only problem I have is that it sometimes snags my hair when I get it too close to the hinge point. But with some practice I should be able to avoid this altogether. My hair is just past my shoulders and this gives me a nice loose curl.

                          A:

                          We list the temperature to use on fragile hair to be 280 degrees and normal hair 330 degrees. So in your case, it would be anywhere between 280 to 300. Try the lowest temperature first and raise as needed.

                          The difference is the size of the barrel. The larger the barrel, the looser/larger the wave or curl that it creates.
