Okay, I have a lion's mane. A huge head of hair. 10 pounds of curl. You get the idea. Quality hair tools are necessary for sure. I decided to try out Hot Tools. And I did a timelapse video of me curling my hair... Because I thought it would be funny. It's kind of weird. And the video starts with my eyes closed... way to go me.
Overall, I thought the curling iron was super high quality. I loved the long rubber on the clip so that you don't burn your fingers. The part on the end was big as well. It also didn't burn my hair or make it stink. My hair was the slightest bit damp when I did it, so I don't think the curls turned out as good as it could have. Overall though, I'm happy with the 50 bucks I spent. :)
