from Saint Clair Shores, MI,
Some of the product prices for these type irons/tools are a bit much. I've owned Conair products for years. This new, professional grade iron, at this price, can't be topped. Am trying to grow my hair a bit, and wanted a larger barreled iron to help me get the style and volume I'm looking for. This fits the bill very well!
I plugged it in and waited for it to heat up. Brushed my teeth, makeup, made the bed, cleaned the kitty box, choose my outfit ......still waiting. The hot indicator dot never went red. I was disappointed because I liked the idea that the clip got hot and not the curler allowing for replacement curlers from the drugstore but it never really got hot enough to even try to curl my hair. I'm sending it back. Perhaps the unit was defective, either way I couldn't keep it as Im certain I would still be waiting for it to heat up.
It heats up quickly and works just great. I obviously have to use the glove to hold the end of the curling want but the glove fits just fine. The curls stay in my hair just fine. I like this one as it seems to be hotter than some other (although older) products I have tried.
Overstock were brilliant, as always, item arrived in great packaging and with lightening speed. However three of the end pieces on the curlers fell off with first use...other issue is the plastic clips; unles PERFECTLY positioned on the roller while heating, the ends melt and fuse together...this also happened to four of the rollers at first use. They do curl well once in...but build quality of product for the money is seriously lacking!
