                    Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

                    I've used an $8 Vidal Sassoon curling iron for years and thought I'd upgrade to a "nice" fancy one. This was recommended by my stylist but is nothing special. It does heat up fast, and you can control the temperature, but that feature is better for thick or coarse hair needing high heat. I have thin, fine hair so I have to use it on the lower end. I thought the extended barrel version was silly but this one is too short, even for my short hair. With my cheap curling iron, the chrome plating has the right amount of slip under the clip such that I can easily pull and "blend" ends under the clip as I roll it. With this one, the clip fits tight: either i pull too far and the hair slips out (grr!), or not enough and I get the evil fishtail crimp at the end of the curl.

                    I do like the heat, seems to make a long lasting curl.

                          Either the 1-1/2 in. or the 1-1/4 in. barrel model would be ideal for you! This larger size barrel works best for longer hair lengths and will give you gorgeous curls and waves.

                          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.
