          Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

          I have very thick, long-pixie-cut hair. Rollers just don't keep it in and aren't practical, and 1 inch barrels are too long to create holding curls.
          This 3/4 iron is PERFECT for the girls with short bobs, girls with pixie-like cuts, and girls who want tight, holding curls.

              Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

              I have very long, layered and thick hair and bought this product to create a "fake blow-dry", to make my hair look like it had been blow dried with a round brush (which takes forever with my hair). Within 15 minutes it looks like I have just gotten a haircut and blow-dry and I even get asked 3 days after using the tool whether I got a hair cut.

              For this purpose it works great, but you will not be able to achieve anything more than a slight wave with this size curling iron. If you are looking to create large curls, you should buy a smaller iron.

                    All of a sudden it just stops heating. This is my 3rd one within a year. I will be using another product now. Cant afford for it to just stop working and have to replace it every 4 to 5 months.

                      Works great for my long thick naturally curly because it heats up quick and has higher temp than most.

                          We suggest using the 1-1/4 in. barrel size to achieve large, loose curls that can be combed through to create 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:

                        I have very hard to curl hair, I get a curl out of my curling iron but automatically the curl will start to fall and by the time I'm done with my whole head the curls are very loose and flat. With that being said, will the hot tools curling iron keep the curl? Even with my very fine hair?

                          This tool is designed with a 24K gold-plated barrel to heat quickly and evenly for professional results. It works on all hair types and textures, including very fine hair. To extend the life of your curls, we recommend setting your style with a finishing hair spray with medium to firm hold.
