Yes!! I have very course, curly hair. But I've noticed that since using this curling iron my hair has been a lot softer, shiner, and doesn't get frizzy as easily. I don't know how they do it, but this has been the best tool to make my hair look great AND feel great!

I've had mine for about a month, and although I can't say for sure because I haven't had it for long I think it is less damaging than the metal curler I used to use. I had a ceramic curling wand and a metal hair curler. Be careful not to leave it on your hair too long though because the heat will definitely damage hair, it's really hot!

Short answer: No.

In fact, this tool seems more than capable of causing more significant heat damage than I am used to with any other combination of tools I have used. I think it is that much hotter. (FYI, as compared to: air drying, just a hair dryer, a hair dryer plus my Sultra curling iron or any other kind of styling iron albeit used much less frequently, or a hair dryer and hot rollers.)

Therefore... make absolute sure that you use a heat protectant or two when you use his tool! (Once I skipped part of this step, and I regretted it. I do not have dry or easily damaged hair either. Now, I always use both a serum and a spray, and that's what I recommended. This iron really is extra hot!)

Long Answer: Maybe, if so, it only helps protect your hair because it is so hot that there is less reason to hold the hair on the iron for any period of time. Also, the midshaft gets more heat than the ends, which coincidentally protects the ends ever so slightly and that is the part of your hair that is most susceptible to heat damage. So... maybe. Definitely use heat protectant though!

I don't believe it's any less damaging. Heat is damaging, period. This curler is at 450 and you can't change it.

Question
Can I use this curling iron internationally? Is it dual voltage?
I'm looking to purchase a good 1.25" curling iron, but I need one that is dual voltage as I travel quite a bit. If this one isn't then any suggestions for other good irons would be welcome =] Thank you!

I live in Germany, and I use a 300 VA transformer with it. It works just fine. It's not dual voltage so don't go plugging it in without a transformer!

I think the bigger iron. I purchased a smaller iron thinking I could easily adjust the tautness of the wrapping, allowing me to have more variations in curl size. I think the larger curls are usually more flattering as once you use the smaller barrel I felt I lost a lot of length in my below shoulder length hair. I ended up returning the smaller for the larger iron.

I have long blonde fine hair and while I like the look of loose curls and not tight spirals, I like 1" curling irons better than 1.25" because you don't need to use as much product to hold the curl---I don't use hairspray; I just shake out my hair and go!

Question
Difference between the 1" and the 1.25" ?
I get that one is smaller and one is larger, but I've never owned a curling iron so I'm curious as to what the major difference is between the two? Do they each give different types of curls?

I have shoulder length, naturally curly and frizzy hair that I straighten

Go for the larger iron! Worked well on my naturally curly, fine hair and gave it a nice wavy quality when I worked slowly.
