                I am actually quite disappointed with this product. While it does heat up quickly, I don't find it's gets hot enough. The curls are frizzy, not smooth and they do not hold.

                      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron:

                      I'm surprised at some of the comments here. Especially about the iron not getting hot enough...it goes up to 450 degrees... I have fine hair, but I have a lot of hair. It lacks volume but is naturally a little wavy. I chose this ceramic iron because I'm currently growing my hair out (finally got it past my shoulders) and wanted an iron that won't damage my hair in the process. I went for the 1.25 barrel because I wanted to be able to do loose waves or tighter curls (by taking smaller sections of hair) and it works great. It takes all the frizz out, gives my hair a beautiful shine, and leaves my hair super soft and bouncy. The curls/waves stay until I wash my hair.
                      If you aren't worried about damaging your hair you can always go for gold or titanium which may give you the curl you want faster. Ceramic keeps even heat on the entire barrel (think cast iron skillet) so it doesn't burn your hair. Slow and steady wins the race!

                        I have used the Hot Tools curling irons for many years. This is my first NanoCeramic curling iron and I love it so far. It gets hotter than the Hot Tools and it takes some getting used to but so far I really love it.

                            Nanoceramic is an excellent choice for colored hair. The surface gives a soft even heat. We recommend a lower temperature setting on colored hair for better protection and to prevent fading. Start around 325 degrees and go up until you reach a temperature that curls well with your hair's texture.

                            The difference is the material of each -

                            CeramicTI Tourmaline (purple) - Ceramic Tourmaline surface with titanium additive emits gentle far-infrared heat and negative ions to increase hydration and shine while reducing frizz.

                            24K gold plated (gold) - Even heat distribution create long-lasting curls and waves leaving hair looking smooth and glossy.

                            NanoCeramic (black & white) - NanoCeramic barrel creates an ultra smooth surface for frizz-free styles.
