Conair Instant Heat Curling Iron

Pros
  • Affordable
  • 25 heat settings
  • Heats up quickly
  • Automatic shutoff
Cons
  • Chrome barrel
  • Poorly placed temperature dial

The Conair Instant Heat Curling Iron is a no-frills curling iron that some users say works just as well as more expensive models. It uses a simple chrome barrel rather than a ceramic or tourmaline barrel, but reviewers say that it heats up quickly and produces good curls. The Conair Instant Heat Curling Iron also has 25 temperature settings, making it a good fit for all hair types. The one major complaint consumers have is that the temperature dial turns too easily and is poorly placed. Several users say it is easy to change the temperature inadvertently while curling one's hair. The Conair Instant Heat Curling Iron is available in five sizes: 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, 1 inch, 1 1/4 inches and 1 1/2 inches. If you prefer a ceramic curling iron, reviewers suggest the Infiniti by Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron (Est. $33).

We found user reviews at Amazon.com, TotalBeauty.com and MakeupAlley.com to be the most useful in evaluating overall satisfaction with the Conair Instant Heat Curling Iron. Ebony magazine lists the curling iron as one of the best hairstyling tools, but doesn't give any further details.
