If you know how to curl with a flat iron, it curls great. If you don't know how, go to YouTube.com and watch some how-to videos. Practice makes perfect! I will say that my curls last all day and are soft, not crunchy like I've experienced with other flat irons.

It's pretty good! It wouldn't be the same as a curler, though. At least not for me. I'm pretty bad at curling with the straighter although, on the Sultra website they give you instructions on how to do everything with your straightener! You should check it out before purchasing

No, not good for curling. I guess you are supposed to wrap the strand around one prong of the barell by hand...way too time consuming, dangerous (burning skin) and annoying. I'm totally taking it back. Not worth the money.

No, this is definitely not good for curling your hair, although it says it is. When it tried it left crimps in my hair, very disapointing

Here are instructions for curling the hair with this iron, which would be a great alternative to a standard curling iron as this item does not damage the hair. If your hair is straight or does not hold a curl easily, you may also want to use hairspray or a curl enhancing spray prior to the using the iron to curl, and then setting with a hairspray if desired.

1. Clamp a small section of hair between the iron, either at the root or mid-strand, depending on where you want the curl to start.

2. Turn the iron downwards 360 degrees so the top of the iron is once again facing upwards.

3. Glide the iron slowly down the length of your hair allowing it to pass easily over the rounded parts of the plates, between the plastic ribs and over the heating vents.

4. Slide the iron slowly through the hair section so it can pass around the iron. Do not squeeze the iron tightly or you will flatten out the curl.

To create loose, flowing waves: glide the iron quickly. For tighter curls: move the iron more slowly.

Sultra! I've had a few GHD's. The new models just don't compare to the way they were made years ago. The results I have with the Sultra are soft, shiny, bouncy, healthier feeling hair. The GHD was leaving my hair split, dry and just not cute.

SULTRA by far, my purple limited edition ghd was ok, but i found that the back of my head; hard to reach areas took alot of going over to get it straight enough to be satisfied with, the sultra is alot lighter and gave me excellent results, my hair is straight after using it, not curling at the ends....also i use loreal elvive smooth intense anti frizz serum $7-10 nzd at local supermarket, and or schwarzkopf straight and glossy anti frizz serum $6-9 nzd at local supermarket, and they work brilliantly with the sultra! my hair looks straight naturally and not oily like i found with my ghd...

Question
General Waves
I know that this ? has been answered under, "Curling?" but, I just bought this, tried it (first I straightened then tried doing a loose secy, victoria secret type wave for my volume and bounce). And nothing! Well, there was something, (and no, I didn't leave it on a section longer than the others I tried) it looked mis-shaped, in a way crimped in 3 inches of my 24" hair. Besides the directions someone had listed...does anyone have any ideas or have had this problem. Also, after trying with this one, I tried with my chi iron. I had watched a youtube video on how to make a curl with ANY flattening iron, basically the same thing but, she had great results! HELP! And I thank you very much if you do :)

To add waves to your hair with the sultra seductress you must take a strand of hair, flip it over and pull very slowly. Next wrap the strand of hair around your finger and add hair spray.

answer 5
When I first tried the Seductress for waving and curling, I found I was placing sections of hair that were too large between the plates. I was getting weird shapes. What I've done is slow down and take smaller pieces of hair. The method of curling is really similar to what you'd do with a CHI or a GHD straightener, but because the Seductress is high-gloss it's like it just slides through your hair without leaving weird marks!

I would just suggest taking smaller sections of hair and slowing down until you get used to curling your hair (because everyone's is different!) with the tool. If you have really long, thick hair, you may need to slow down, take smaller sections and then slowly move through each section.

Just play with it and see if you can't make it work for you. I love mine - I have really weird hair and it's the perfect tool for me!

you're probably not giving it a full turn. i watched a youtube video too, and kept coming up with crimps instead of curls, but i realized that i was only turning it halfway. give it one more turn and then see if that helps. :)

I am the Education Brand Manager with Sultra. You do not need to buy 3 different irons to have the versatility in styling. If you purchased the Seductress Curl, Wave and Straight Iron you have all the versatility you need. Instead of written directions for each technique and taking up so much room. I am recommending that you check out Sultra.com "Styling Tip" Section. It will give you instructions as well as pictures to help you achieve the look you want.

Coated, but most are. Pure ceramic are good for the hair but are also less durable and more expensive. What's important is what is in contact with your hair.

Seductress on Relaxed or Natural African American Hair?
I have texlaxed 3c hair and can't seem to find any reviews on this iron by women with kinky hair! i do not have thick hair, it's actually quite fine; but there's A LOT of it and it's very curly so it gets dry, and poofy very easily. Does anyone with a similar hair texture now how this iron will work with my hair?

My hair is relaxed and between 3B and 3C. I have a lot of thick hair. Easy to frizz and poof out. This iron works great on my hair. Makes my hair less poofy, feel softer and shiny.It seems to do less damage than other irons. With GHD letting me down, I've been looking or something to not like about this iron but it's hard. The only thing I will say is that the outside gets little warm. I only touch the ends when making tight curls, I just keep bouncing my fingers on and off so I'm not holding it the entire time. Go to your local sephora and ask them to let you use it. Flat iron with it and see how it does with your hair after a few hours. Best way to know for sure!

Does this iron really protect hair from heat damage?
I was just wondering if this particular technology can really protect hair from heat damage. I've been trying to stay away from heated styling tools, but this iron sounds great from the reviews. I have the 1 inch bombshell and I really love that as well, but it does heat up to a high temperature.

This has temperature settings which is good. Also with one swipe your hair is straight which prevents long exposure to heat. I have fried my hair with cheap irons and this left my hair like I just went to a salon.

After damaging my hair for so long, I was trying to stay away from hot tools for my hair. But, was used to the straightness that I can't achieve any other way. I am happy that I got it. It's not like the others. I definitely recommend the purchase, it was worth it for me! I love the results and my hair is no longer damaged looking! Hope this helps in your decision!

Me too! I found the same discrepancy. If it is univseral voltage, why does the input voltage for the electrical plug only state 120 volts.? If I use it in Hong Kong where it is 220 volts, will it short circuit and damage the flatiron?

No there is no place at the end to hold the flat iron, but it is so light weight that there really is no reason to hold it. You also do not have to press the sides together very hard since the heat is so even throughout.
