    Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

    The heat settings and everything are fine but this ISNT a regular curing iron! It has an inch long baby clip instead of one that runs the full length of the barrel. So if you're like me and trying to take frizz while you curl it just isn't going to fly!

      I was shopping for a 1.5 inch barrel didn't notice the SHORT clamp. My fault. But clamp doesn't hold ends well to make waves.

      This iron works just as advertised. My long thin hair is a challenge to style but this particular iron is easier to use than most others.

      Amazing Dual Voltage Iron That Doesn't Break the Bank!

        Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

        I'm so sad to see so many negative reviews because this iron was a hair saver on my honeymoon in France. It's dual voltage so it works in European countries, all you need is an adapter. I have *very* thick hair, and as long as I turn the heat high (23+) like I do for my fancy Hot Tools wand, my hair curls beautifully. Such a steal for the price, always try an iron on higher heat before you give up on it!

            Belongs in The Museum of Failed Objects

            Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

            This iron seems designed to foil any attempt at ironing. Its 1 1/4" spoon grasps a wisp of hair on one end of a 7" barrel, and then....what?!? Only some of your selected lock of hair can be curled because only some of it is captured in the 2" spoon; the remainder just flops around in the heat, trying to find some use for the left-over (entirely superfluous) 5 inches of barrel. This piece belongs in the Museum of Failed Objects, like Edsel and Google Wave. I couldn't help thinking, "Is this an economy measure -- Conair trying to save materials and shipping weight?" I hope the store will take this turkey back.

            I hated this

            Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

            My hair is extremely easy to curl so I figured I didn't need a fancy curling iron to get results. This curling iron wouldn't even put a curl in my hair. It warmed up just fine but when in use it was like it got too cold to do its job. I hated this curling iron.

              • short gripper makes it hard to just cur ends

                Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

                while this curling iron makes nice "beachy wave" curls, it's not practical for every day quick end curls. Had I realized that the hair clamp on the barrel was so short and not the length of the barrel, I wouldn't have purchased the curling iron

                The Turbo feature/button doesn't light up or turn on. 1st time using it and it doesn't work. I'm returning it.

                Horrible

                By Nashville Mommy

                from Nashville, TN

                Verified Buyer

                Comments about Conair XL Barrel Curling Iron:

                I was excited to finally retire the decades old $10 (or less) Vidal Sassoon curling iron that I've been using. I really thought I was getting an upgrade. Not so much. I do like the fact that it has so many heat setting, but that's about it. This is the same size barrel that I've been using, and my hair curls easily. HOWEVER, this thing doesn't curl at all. NOT. AT. ALL. It actually straightens my hair leaving it lank and flat. If I'd wanted a flatiron I'd be a happy camper. But a bought a CURLING iron because I wanted curls. :( Perhaps the problem is that clamp...or lack of one. The piece that is intended to hold the hair in place is maybe an inch long making it hard to effectively wrap the hair around the barrel. So VERY VERY disappointed.

                • Q:

                  Is the "clip" on this awesome XL longer barrel curing iron longer as well? I have extremely long hair and I am so excited about this XL Longer extended barrel but I need to know if the "clip" part is also extended. I have been waiting for an one that the clip is extended and longer as well so I can actually get a full long curl (s) through my WHOLE head not just curls that start in the middle of my head and end 3/4 of the way down to the end! I've been looking forever! Please help!

                    No, the clip is standard size - just the barrel features extended length.
