Q: What is the biggest difference between this soft waves iron and the ceramic curling iron - aside from one being ceramic? Trying to decide between those two. Both 1 1/ 4 size.

submitted by SunshineAP - 4 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! Titanium curling irons we recommend for healthy, thick and coarse hair because the rapid heat technology allows for the hair to curl faster and more evenly throughout the hair. Ceramic curling irons we recommend for fine, delicate, or damage-prone hair since ceramic is more gentle on the hair and locks in moisture while closing the cuticle which leaves your hair looking smooth and healthy.

Don not buy! Overall the heating and hair curling is good, but the unit kept on shutting off. The cable got damages at the point where it rotates and attaches to the tool and it doesn’t connect. The tool ended up in trash can after 3 months. Waste of money

Surprisingly poor performing. It added zero shine to my hair and even seemed to cause frizz, which I’ve never experienced before with a curling iron. 3 stars because it’s pretty and comfortable to hold, heats up fast, and is dual voltage. Returning.

I do like this curling iron because it’s easy to use and looks beautiful on my counter if I forget to put it away. HOWEVER, I *hate* that it auto-offs after 30 minutes because it usually takes me longer than that to do my hair. I wish it was a longer timer. I also agree it doesn’t hold a curl super well even on the highest heat setting, but I try to avoid super high heat so that’s more of a compromise I’m willing to make. It does a soft wave VERY well. Also, the display that tells me if it is on/off just broke today after ~9 months of having it and I don’t have the receipt bc it was a gift :’) It still turns on but I have no way to know what the heat is @ or if it’s actually on without touching it…no thanks, I’ll pass on the burn! This should be priced at ~$40 for the value.

This iron does not hold a curl I have tried for over a year now, working hairsprays, different heat protectants. I don’t know why I keep picking it up, my other curling iron is smaller but it does a way better job way over priced to do nothing but damage my hair.

My GHD curling iron (which I loved) died after a few years of use, and I wanted to try something a little less expensive to see if I could achieve similar results. This seemed like a good option, so I ordered it. I have loved it so far! Very comparable to the GHD curling iron, and one thing I prefer is the ability to adjust the heat temp. I am curious to see how it performs over time.

Kristen B - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
It left my hair smooth and shiny. However, it didn't hold a curl. I have wavy hair naturally and when i use the hot tools brand, it holds my curl for days. This curling iron didn't ever last more than a day of curls before they fell out. I also noticed on the second time of using it, it turned off on its own a minute after turning on to heat up.

technically, it will curl your hair. but it doesn’t glide at all and left soooo many dents in my hair. i bought the 2” barrel first and the handle snapped off before i was even halfway done curling my hair. so i took it back and exchanged for the 1 1/4” and the same thing happened. it seems very cheaply made and pulled out so much of my hair.

I cannot believe how much better this curling iron is from my hot tools iron. I’m so glad I decided to try it. The titanium barrel is superior and gives an even curl…somehow it is easier to clasp the hair and create a defined curl. Sooo happy I bought this, wish I had done it sooner.

I have 1a straight and fine hair, however it can decently hold a curl. This is more like a straightener. It will not hold a curl, it's short, and my hair gets caught. Look else where

The curling iron heats up quickly and has the perfect grip which makes styling easy. The controls are placed properly so that you don’t accidentally touch them while holding the iron as with some other product designs. Love it!

Bought a year ago and how to hold top was an adjustment as other reviews have noted but curled fine. The plastic lever just broke rendering it useless unless I fix with heat-resistant glue. Disappointing!

La - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This curling iron is absolutely amazing! I’ve been shopping around and finally found a hair worthy product. I dislike one thing and it’s pretty pertinent-the location of the Off/On button. It’s in a place where you can’t put your hand high or low and because it’s right in the middle I end up turn it off numerous times. Unfortunate because this is really amazing but I don’t want to keep checking on whether or not I accidentally switched it to off.

This curler snagged and pulled my hair. Like other reviewers wrote, the top is difficult to hold so it is easier to burn yourself. Definitely returning. Such a shame because I purchased the straightener and I absolutely loved that tool but the curler is a hard pass.
