She tells me that the ceramic barrel heats evenly without any 'hot spots' that often occur in metal barrels. 'Hot Spots' can cause burning or dryness in some areas of the hair while not smoothing or curling other areas of the hair in the way it should. My daughter tells me that this ceramic iron smoothes and curls her hair better than any curling iron she has owned in the past.
She is very happy with the temperature control feature of this iron. It can be set to the perfect temperature for any texture of hair since there are thirty heat settings. The iron can cooled to a temperature to curl her youngest daughter's baby fine hair without fear of burning it. The same iron will get hot enough to curl her older daughter's coarser hair.
This curling iron features a cool tip to prevent burned finger tips.
Since my daughter is a working mom, she likes the fact that this iron heats completely in as little as thirty seconds. There is no need to preheat it for a long time before using it. This feature helps my daughter in getting her daughters to school and herself to work on time.
