I love my curling iron. I could probably have gone a bit bigger as far as the width of the iron is concerned as I have very long, thick hair but it does the job & it does it well. It heats up really fast & because the ceramic is so smooth, you dont have to worry about dragging which causes frizz. I like that this iron has an adjustable heat setting for different hair types too. I turn it down when Im doing the smaller front bits of hair & turn it up when im doing bulk in the back. Used together with a good curl enhancer, I cant say I have any problems with it at all. I also love that the cord has a swivel connector on the back & a little stand so it doesn't burn anything you might lay it on. I said I wouldn't purchase this product again because I wouldnt need to but I would purchase a bigger size roller & give this one to a friend. I love the babyliss brand. 10/10!!
