Add some sparkle with the Hot Tools 24K gold line of curling irons. Extra Long Barrel allows for more hair to be curled quickly.
I'm glad I spent the money for a quality curling iron. I have struggled with curling irons in the past that just didn't get hot enough and never were long enough for my hair. This one has a sturdy clamp and appears very well made. In addition to two extra springs, the curling iron also comes with a black heat-resistant rubber mat to lay the curling iron on that is about 4 inches by 8 inches, I am estimating. I have thick hair, that my whole life has never held a curl easily at all. This one changes that, my curls do loosen throughout the day to be more waves, but that's to be expected. I use this on about 400 degree heat. I kind of wish the barrel was longer as I don't even have ridiculously long hair and it barely curls the length of my hair. I get to use so much less hair spray when I curl my hair now because the curls stay so much easier so my hair is less crunchy and can be combed out so more easily and nicely at the end of the day. Not to mention that I don't have to have hair anxiety throughout the day, anyone know what I'm talking about?? When I worry about crushing my curls if I lay or sit back on them weird or tangling them up because they're so freaking sticky with all that hair spray I need because my hair is so difficult to curl. Ick, I know haha,
I loved this curling iron the first few times I used it. Then one morning it unexpectedly overheated, melted the hair it was curling and then would not turn on anymore.
I sent back for a refund and am not sure if I would buy this product again. After googling, it seems as though the manufacturer Helen of Troy has a history of curling irons doing this.
I have tried this iron for over a year. I had another type of hot tools curling iron before this one but after it broke I tried this one. I have tried for over years of keeping the iron the same changing hair products such as shampoo, conditioner, and hair spray I have came to the conclusion that it's not the products or my hair as I've never had a problem curling it before. It is the iron. Do not buy it, it will not hold curl for more than hour.
I am so happy with this curling iron. It heats up quickly and the extra long barrel does a great job of curling my long hair. I get nice, loose waves with it. The rotating cord and tip make it so easy to use. Plus, the gold finish is beautiful to look at. I highly recommend it.
Not sure what it is about this iron, but for some reason my curls don't hold when I use this. My hair holds a curl with cheaper brands and wands just fine, but this one doesn't work for me.
Was so excited at first. The barrel size is perfect for my thick long hair. However, the "long barrel" doesn't include a long clamp and because it's gold plated whatever and not titanium or ceramic, the curl never holds despite the amount of products
Such versatility! I CBD use like a regular curling iron and warp my hair at the same time ! Love this iron.
