                  This curling iron gets really hot but the rubber handle will not hold up. It gets sticky over time and the rubber will become sticky in your hand while holding it. I put mine in the trash when this happened. Will never buy a curling iron with a rubber handle ever again.

                    I use this once a week. I love it because it's so easy to use. Easier than using clip less irons. I don't know why those became so popular.

                        A:

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

                        For longer lengths, we recommend using a larger barrel such as the 1-1/4" or 1-1/2".

                        The Rainbow Gold Curling Iron is also plated in 24K gold, so it provides the same results as the original Gold Curling Iron! The only difference is the outer appearance of the barrel.

                        Either would work for you for loose curls! The 1-1/2" size produces slightly larger and looser curls than the 1-1/4".
