I'm really impressed

By Glamy

from Portland/Los Angeles

Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

I have very long straight hard to curl Asian/Latin hair. I've tried everything from drugstore curling devices to as seen on tv, to high end hair curling things, and nothing works this easily. I don't know what magic is in this chi arc, but wow. It actually curls my hair with amazing long lasting curls. I use it at around 360°, I hold my hair wrapped around it until it beeps, clamp and unclamp the clip until the ends are quickly curled, I release the clip pulling the iron straight down and out of hair, and I'm finished in 15-20 mins. And that's fast for the amount of hair I have. I can get away with 3 whole days of curled hair in humid weather with this curling iron(days 3 hair is usually in a pony) Amazing. I thought the T3 whirl trio was the biz, nope this beats it. The most important thing about this curling iron is that it's really easy to use and fast, which has empowered me to curl my hair almost every time. I wish I had discovered this thing sooner. I thought the motorized wrap feature would be just another gimmick, but it really works and saves effort.

      Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

      I wanted to like this. It takes way too much time to get it right - it'll pull your hair, and it doesn't style 1", only 1/2" so if you have thick hair like me it'll take forever. I'm honestly just using it as a wand (I could've purchased a wand for a lot cheaper and saved some money) however since this is Chi it's obviously well built and I'll keep it

              I like it. I just wish I could've found it in the 3/4 inch barrel. The curls are too loose and don't stay long. But that might just be me.

                Better than other curling irons

                By Newyorking

                Verified Reviewer

                Comments about Chi Online Only ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

                I have tried using a curler a few times. I bought one that you needed a glove for, and I tried and tried, bit it was just too hard to keep the hair around the curling iron and hold it with a glove especially on the opposite side. So I bought this one. It is easier to use with the automatic curling aspect. Much easier. I was actually able to curl most of my hair. I ran into a few issues though. What do you do with ends? If you don't have ends with the same length, it is harder to curl and takes longer. Some ends slip out. If you keep the end outside of the iron, it is not curled. The auto curl thing, on each side I ran into the same challenge with using a different hand or confusion regarding curl in the front or back. Since I am right handed, one side was easier than the other. The not-easy side, I ended up burning my skin. The rotating thing kept going and burned a bit of my skin and two months later I am still treating the scar. It was awful. I know it is just a matter of learning, but it should not be so hard to the point of burning me! The curls didn't stay till the next day. When I woke up they were gone and replaced with frizzy hair, so I sent it back. If i put in so much trouble and it doesn't even stay the next day, it is just not worth it. But I have thick, dense, curly hair slightly below my shoulders. I imagine it would be different for someone with think hair. My natural curls hold much better. I really wish I could use this better though, I have seen gorgeous curls on women who do it, but this was just not for my hair type.

                    One way to achieve a looser curl using the CHI Arc would be to use larger sections of hair for each curl.

                    A:

                    This would depend greatly on the texture of the hair and the desired style. With textured hair being defined as fine, medium, or coarse, the appropriate heat setting for the individual hair texture would need to be used to achieve a curled style without having to first straighten it.
