I recently purchased this after some extensive research. My hair is coarse-ish but straight and doesn't hold any kind of style. It is just past my shoulders and I really wanted to get some curls to it. I am really happy with this curling iron, it seems to be of excellent quality and heats up really quickly. I am still getting the hang of it but the curls it produces are so beautiful that it breaks my heart that they don't hold even with styling products and hairspray.
If anything, my ends look extremely dry and rough since I curled my hair. I have ordered some new hair products and will be trying this iron out with them with the hope that they will last. If you don't have issues with your hair holding curls, this tool will give you some amazing, shiny and bouncy curls. Love it so far.
