I'd like to say I know how to style hair, but I'd be lying. I do try to give it a go, though. I want to look like I've made some effort, without spending a lot of time doing it. I've went through my fair share of hair straighteners, curling irons, and other styling aids. Some aren't worth the money, and others go beyond my expectations.
I recently had the opportunity to try the John Frieda by Conair Volume Curls 1 ½ inch Curling Iron. I have a good impression of John Frieda to begin with, and this curling iron didn't disappoint.
This particular curling iron is meant to create voluminous waves. True ceramic heat reaches up to
400°F/205°C for salon quality results while eleven professional digital settings create customized style for all hair types and textures. Use lower heat setting for fine hair; medium settings for medium hair; the highest settings for coarse or thick hair.
Beings that I have thick hair, I use the curling iron on the highest setting. I've found that it curls best when small sections of hair are curled at a time. And, the curls stay in for several hours. This curling iron has a ceramic coating to protect hair from hot spots, and has Ionic Technology that reduces frizz and flyaways.
I've curled my hair several times with the John Frieda by Conair Volume Curls 1 ½ inch Curling Iron and almost always receive compliments on the curl and shine.
I failed to get a picture of my hair right after I curled it. But, as you can see, the curls were mostly still in place after eight hours.
