This has to be my favorite curling iron. It's so simple to use. Heat up time is quick. These features five precision heat settings, tourmaline ceramic, 1 1/2 inch barrel, heats up to a max of 400 degrees, swivel tangle free cord. The curls in my hair hold longer and look more natural. It did take me a few times to get use to using the iron. I was using a curling brush before. I like the finished look I achieve with this than my curling brush. My hair looks healthier.
