My hair is about 3" below my shoulders, medium thickness, cut in layers, and has a moderate amount of natural curl--just enough to make it somewhat fuzzy in humidity and I use to use 1.5" curling iron to straighten and give body. These rollers are equivalent to a 1.5" curling iron, but much easier and quicker to use. I put one on top, one on each side, and two in back. It turns out perfect. Has cut my time in half it takes me to do my hair. By the time I am done blow drying my hair they are heated and ready to go. I leave them in while putting on my makeup. Don't know now how I managed without them.
I've had the non-ceramic version of this for years, but the spring (even though they provide replacement springs) has always been a problem. It catches on it's roller, so the clamp doesn't always close tightly when you want it to. Anyway, thought I'd try the ceramic version, as it's supposed to be kinder to the hair - and am hoping maybe the coating will help with the spring problems, too. So far, so good. I don't know of any other brand that makes a 2" barrel, so I don't have a lot of options. I love the huge size as I use it for basically straightening my hair, but with a slight turn under at the ends. This has a full range of heat options from slightly warm to VERY hot. I keep it somewhere in the middle. It's comfortable in the hand and does the job I bought it for. No complaints. I've only had it for a couple of weeks so I can't speak to it's longevity, but I've had good luck with this brand in the past so I'm optimistic! It's too soon for a 5 star rating, but ask me again in a year or so!
I absolutely love this product, despite that I had to order the product twice due to color issues both times, however Overstock took the time to listen/read (via chat) my issues and concerns and reached back out to me within a few days and even applied a credit to acct. in regards to the mishaps of the color. The product works great, at first was a task trying to learn how to use for 1st time, but thanks to YouTube tutorials I mastered the craft in no time.Curls normally are out of my head by the end of the day their in especially without any holding sprays or serums, however after using my Purple (Not Red as shown in picture) Curling Wand my curls have been holding for almost 3 days now, after being slept on and everything else,of course with the help of my scarf and bonet, but still out of every curler I've ever used never have I had these end results. I rate this item 5 STAR's for the Outstanding customer service experience even after the color issue and also because this curling wand is AWESOME and Curls last for a REALLLLLY long time :) I definitely Recommrn
